Podcast: The coolest equipment, technology we saw at the TMC Annual Meeting and Exhibition

In the newest episode of the Fleet Future podcast, Alex Crissey and Jason Morgan recap the 2020 TMC Annual Meeting and Exhibition.

Ed. Note: This episode was recorded before the widespread outbreak of the coronavirus, and as such we talk about the value of trade shows, what to look for when you’re at a show, and other similar topics that, for the moment, will not apply as most American trade shows are canceled, and being in large crowds in inadvisable.

In the newest episode of the Fleet Future podcast, Alex Crissey and Jason Morgan recap the 2020 TMC Annual Meeting and Exhibition, including the biggest news from the show, the trends we saw at the show and what fleet managers should be looking for at trade shows.
