By: Red Classic

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – (March 29, 2016)

Red Classic will make its way to Louisville, Ky. later this week for the largest annual heavy-duty trucking industry event, better known as the Mid-America Trucking Show.

The event attracts 70,000 attendees annually and more than 1,000 exhibitors from across the country and is considered the “granddaddy” of all trucking events.

“Red Classic moved into the Louisville area last May and continues to expand our company footprint into Ohio and Indiana, so this show is a natural fit in more than one way,” said Mike Stevens, Director of Operations. “MATS attracts vendors of all types that cater to the trucking industry and is the biggest show of its kind that we attend all year. For us, the Mid-America Trucking Show is about recruiting drivers, technicians, owner/operators, potential carriers for our logistics solutions and personnel with industry-related experience for operations.”

The event will take place over three days from Thursday, March 31st to Saturday, April 1st.
