MATS Wrap Up

MATS in Loo avul, Luhvul, Looaville, Looeyville, Louisville, however you say it… was a great time!

The Mid America Trucking Show 2017 — all 1.1 million sq ft, 1,000 vendors, 75,000+ attendees, and 22,000+ steps per day — is in the books! Our crew included our programmer Jeff (it’s good to unchain him from the desk once in a while), our designer Chris, our advisor Gerald, intern Tim (aka “Timtern”), Michele (Eric’s better half), Dan, and Eric.

We have two goals at any tradeshow: talk to drivers and find partners. MATS was a big success for us on both fronts.

Over 150 drivers gave us a few minutes of their time to demo the app, talk about the issues they’re facing, and work together to solve some of those problems with Dock411. Some of those drivers include:

  • Bill G
  • Elizabeth L
  • Scott R
  • Vince T
  • Brad W
  • Joe M
  • Dylan H
  • Jack S
  • Todd B
  • Kevin H
  • Joe B
  • Steve S
  • and many others!

Thanks to you all; we appreciate your support and promise to do our best to get you the dock details you deserve.
