TORONTO, Ont. — The Industry Blogs section of Trucknews.com hit a milestone last week, with the posting of its 2,000th reader comment.
Launched in 2007, the blog section of Trucknews.com has grown to include a full roster of industry experts. In addition to the editorial team of Truck News, Truck West and Motortruck Fleet Executive magazines, guest bloggers include: on-road editor Harry Rudolfs; Mike McCarron, managing partner, MSM Transportation; Dan Goodwill, president of Dan Goodwill & Associates; David Benjatschek, owner of Wowtrucks.com; Lee Palmer, president of Palmer Marketing; industry consultant Kevin Snobel; and Ray Haight of Transrep.
“Collectively, these contributors offer insight into a full range of topics related to the Canadian trucking industry,” says James Menzies, executive editor of Truck News. “The blogs have been home to spirited debates, thought-provoking discussions and a gold mine of information on succeeding in the trucking industry.”
The Trucknews.com blogs include more than 500 individual entries and 2,000 reader responses.
Tony Godsoe posted the 2,000th comment and wins a $100 Tim Horton’s gift card to mark the occasion. His comment was the 18th to be posted to Goodwill’s entry, entitled ‘Some thoughts on the driver shortage issue.’
At the age of 62, Godsoe is considering getting back into the trucking industry as a driver. He drove professionally in the past before moving on to a career as a paramedic. In good health, Godsoe feels he has something left to give the trucking industry and upon completion of some refresher training, hopes to be back on the road before long.
“The industry has changed greatly; customers are demanding more professionalism and faster service the world is moving faster now than ever before,” Godsoe told Trucknews.com when informed of his prize. “I agree the industry is short of drivers and the older real pros are leaving the industry.”
