The conference will be held May 20-22 at the Grove Park Inn Resort in Asheville, N.C. Technology roundtable discussions and seven educational sessions will focus on financial issues in the trucking industry.
Roy Young, vice president of First Union Bank; Keith Hahn, director of transportation at Fleet Capital Leasing; and Steven Brown, senior vice president of General Electric Capital Corp., will act as panelists for one session titled, "Capital Availability for Trucking."
During the session, the panelists will debate how an economic slowdown and the consequential impact on freight tonnage, combined with higher fuel costs and banking industry consolidation, might influence credit availability.
Other sessions will cover taxes, insurance, yield management profitability analysis, information technology, legal issues, the pitfalls of e-business, and other topics.
The event's Exhibit Forum will be open for browsing all three days of the conference.
