The Top 10 Trucking Posts of 2020

2020 has proven to be an unprecedented year, but the trucking community has remained strong and resilient. Facing the Covid-19 crisis and stay-at-home orders early on, Americans looked to on-demand delivery for their goods. On top of that, medical suppliers shipped more equipment and necessities to the front lines than ever before.

Today, with the holidays approaching, it hasn’t let up. As a result, new owner-operators are entering the market to help America keep up. We’re forever grateful for these essential workers who keep us going in good times and bad.

We hope we’ve helped these American heroes—old and new—in some small way by providing the resources to make it through what’s turning out to be the longest haul yet.
