Financing and Grant Programs for the Transportation Industry

April 25, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 1:30 pm

Free

Owning and operating your own transportation business in a very competitive marketplace can be a very daunting challenge.  Not only do you work very hard and long hours, you’re also faced with the responsibility of managing rising fuel, insurance, labor and maintenance costs.  Unforeseen situations like natural disasters or economic downturns can add further disruption to your business.

In this workshop, you will learn about resources and best practices for the transportation industry including:

  • Grant programs to replace older trucks with new cleaner models aimed at reducing emission.   This can potentially save your company thousands of dollars through improved fuel economy and lower maintenance costs.
  • Low interest loan programs that can help with short term cash flow or other funding needs.
  • Best practices to running and operating a successful trucking business.
  • SBDC programs and services and financing assistance.
