The expo focuses exclusively on the expedited trucking industry, or freight hauling that deals with rush orders. The expo is geared specifically to owner-operators and drivers of medium-duty and heavy-duty trucks. It launched in 2001.
Expedite Expo is scheduled for July 16-17, 2021, at the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum in Fort Wayne, Ind. Admission to attend is free, but attendees are asked to register.
