"I'm coming down from Canada and will drive a truck as an essential worker if I have to,” Wendell Erb, president and CEO of Erb Group of Companies, said. “I've been attending this event since the late '90s and not only find the meeting very educational but we have made great friends in the industry through the event. We have a great agenda and speakers lined up so let's get back to some normality—join me at this Summer's Reefer meeting."
