Atlanta GA, March 17, 2021 — TruckerCloud announced today that its CEO, Sam Powers, will be speaking at FreightWaves’ upcoming virtual 3PL Summit, which will highlight the best technology and practices to guide 3PLs and freight brokers to success this year.
Sam and FreightWaves staff writer Grace Sharkey will hold a 20 minute fireside chat on “How Smaller 3PLs Can Use Technology to Compete.” The segment will be streamed on Wednesday, March 24 between 4:35 and 4:55 pm EDT.

“There are three resources that smaller 3PLs need to give them a competitive advantage against the bigger guys,” says Sam. “A TMS platform, financing, and visibility.
