Cleveland Expo Scheduled for Area Trucking Pros

Ron Kemm
Clevleland XTRA Expo
Cleveland-area trucking professionals are invited to learn how to handle CSA issues, attend a simulated DOT inspection and learn about current trucking trends in a free expo presented by XTRA Lease, on Thursday, Oct. 2.

The event is designed to help area trucking companies and shippers cope with safety regulations and better manage their fleets.

XTRA Lease recently unveiled a new Cleveland facility at 1211 Highland Rd. in Macedonia, and will celebrate that opening with the half day of events at the new branch.

An officer from the Ohio State Highway Patrol will conduct a step-by-step roadside inspection. Fleet professionals can see first-hand the process drivers experience with a Level One inspection. The Ohio State Highway Patrol regularly performs thorough commercial vehicle inspections to ensure Ohio’s highways remain safe.

Featured guest speakers will include Jeff Davis, president of Fleet Safety Services, LLC, who will teach fleets how to take practical steps to deal with CSA problems. Jim Braun, research professional with Cleveland Research Co., an independent firm focused on industry research, will share his insight on current trucking trends.

The expo will run from 9:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 2, at the XTRA Lease Cleveland location. Lunch will be provided. All carriers and shippers who do business in Ohio are invited.
