The 11th annual Expedite Expo is America’s largest expedited trucking show. With more than 100 exhibits and a wide range of events and entertainment, the event is scheduled for July 22-23 at the Roberts Convention Centre in Wilmington, OH.

OOIDA Director of Security Operations Doug Morris will be on hand to educate truck professionals on the First Observer program. First Observer is a national safety and security program that uses the skills, experiences and savvy of America’s transportation professionals to help protect the critical transportation function that moves the goods and services and people across America.

First Observer is operated by Team HMS under a Cooperative Agreement with the Department of Homeland Security Trucking Security Program. OOIDA is a partner in First Observer. The program’s mission is to administer an anti-terrorism and security awareness program for highway professionals in support of the national preparedness guidelines.

There will be a total of eight $100 cash giveaways at Expedite Expo, four on each day of the show. At 4 p.m. each day, a $1,000 cash prize will be given away to a lucky winner. A $1,200 Espar Heater also will be given away at the show.

A total of 11 free driver workshops are planned for the two-day expo, covering a range of topics from maintenance to insurance to vehicle financing. 
Expedite Expo attendees will find the display of antique trucks to be a highlight of the show. Sponsored by Old Time Trucks magazine, the show will feature classic trucks from all over the United States.
