Social Media in Trucking

The power of social media excites me!  I’ve long been an advocate for the use of social media and have, in fact, encouraged several companies and individuals to embrace it.  While the platforms may change from time to time there is little doubt Web 2.0 is a powerful communication tool that is here to stay.

You can find me on Facebook at and on Twitter at

My latest feature in Woodward Publishing’s Western Trucking News (also published in Ontario Trucking News and Eastern Trucking News, all Canadian publications) highlights just a couple of ways the trucking industry is using social media.  Obviously there is much more, from driver recruitment to safety messages to more.
