The NATSO Show Concludes in Savannah


Hundreds of truckstop and travel plaza operators and managers, industry suppliers and innovative experts convened in Savannah, Ga., to discuss the latest industry trends, see new products, and learn new ways to improve their business operations both today and into the future. 

During the show, operators heard keynote addresses from leading experts, such as Bob Costello of the American Trucking Associations; Tom Kloza of OPIS; Ryan Houfek of CSX Intermodal; and Jimmy Haslam of Pilot Flying J. Attendees were also able to take part in a number of learning opportunities, including sessions on reducing shrink loss, managing vendors and hiring the right employees. For a limited time, copies of the presentations will be available on NATSO's website

NATSO would like to thank all of those who supported the show and, in particular, its Chairman's Circle members for their ongoing support of the show and the industry. 

Plans are already underway for The NATSO Show 2014. Save the date and make plans to attend next year’s show Jan. 26 - 29, 2014, in Nashville, Tenn. 

The NATSO Show presents countless opportunities for those involved in the travel plaza or truckstop industry to gather the latest from key industry leaders on trends facing the industry, find the latest products and collect ideas on how to better serve their customers.
