TrüNorth Global™ to Fill Transportation Industry Thought Leadership Void through Partnership with Charlotte Business Journal
Charlotte, N.C. (March 3, 2020) – TrüNorth Global™ is pleased to announce its partnership with the Charlotte Business Journal to provide insight and increased awareness of the opportunities and challenges today’s dynamically-changing transportation industry poses for our local, regional and national business communities. TrüNorth is the leading global provider of commercial asset protection for all commercial trucks, construction equipment, steam and cargo ships, power generation, and air.
“Partnering with the Charlotte Business Journal as a member of the publication’s Leadership Trust is a great opportunity to raise awareness of the tremendous changes taking place in our industry, and how they impact companies across industry and market sectors,” said William Eskridge, TrüNorth Global Chairman/CEO. “The past ten years brought profound changes to the transportation industry. As we enter a new decade, I believe the industry will continue to experience unprecedented levels of disruption stemming from new technologies that will create new markets and business channels.”
According to Eskridge, whether a business relies on ground, air, rail or sea for its products to reach end-customers, businesses will be increasingly challenged in the years ahead to rethink everything from warehouse locations to logistics, fleet and carrier strategies. “No matter how large or small your business is today, it’s critical to understand how changing consumer demand is impacting the supply chain, from manufacturing to warehousing and logistics technologies. The ability to anticipate and accommodate change will ultimately determine a business’ ability to drive revenue, remain competitive and grow market share,” Eskridge said.
“Our partnership with the Charlotte Business Journal is a great opportunity to share the tremendous insight and expertise of our leadership team, who have deep experiences and backgrounds in commercial transportation, logistics, supply chain management and technology,” Eskridge said. “We look forward to contributing our thoughts and insights through a variety of channels, including publishing regular articles on topics that impact local, regional and national business leaders.”
