LLN (3/26/21) – Two issues that always come up at truck shows are the ongoing problems with brokers and lease-purchase plans. So our virtual trip to the Mid-America Trucking Show continues with a visit from OOIDA’s business services department. Also, our virtual MATS would not be complete without some fun – big shiny show trucks, great music, the newest cool gadget, and of course, all the great people you see there every year. And every year, MATS takes place about the same time as March Madness, which this year carries the theme ‘year of the underdog.’ But for truckers, every year is the year of the underdog, as they pit themselves against forces far larger with far more resources.
