Bill Graves, American Trucking Associations president and chief executive officer, will serve as lead speaker. “Each year, we receive tremendous feedback from our attendees about the value of attending our Symposium,” says Douglas Clark, president and CEO of AmeriQuest, based in Cherry Hill, N.J. “By coming together at one time, in one place, they discover the best ways to nurture and capitalize on innovation in the industry.”
