Convoy creates 65 jobs, saves truckers money

Convoy Solutions, based in Knoxville, Tenn., provides long-haul truck drivers and fleet owners with innovative solutions that reduce diesel fuel costs, create jobs, and benefit drivers. The company’s IdleAir systems supply HVAC, electricity, satellite TV and internet service at truck stops. This allows truckers to turn off their diesel engines, reducing fuel usage, extending the life of their engines, enjoying better sleep, and minimizing downtime.

The company currently employs 65 employees at 21 locations in nine states: Arkansas, California, Georgia, Illinois, Missouri, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, and Utah.

Through those operations, the company saves trucking companies about 4,000 gallons of diesel every day. Ethan Garber, CEO of Convoy Solutions, said Convoy is rapidly expanding.
