Two Truck Stops You Don’t Want to Miss

Motor Carrier HQ is committed to making sure our clients are compliant on the roads. We make sure all of their paperwork is taken care of and ensure they have a current motor carrier authority. In addition, we believe it is important that our clients are comfortable while on the roads. After a long haul, it is important for drivers to get some good rest, clean up, and have a good meal. This week, we are highlighting two of the most accommodating truck stops in the Midwest. If you are ever trucking along Interstate 80, these are two places you must make sure to check out! Bosselman Travel Center Grand Island, Nebraska I-80 Exit 312 Amenities include:

  • Boss Shop
    • Looking for a quick oil change or any other truck repairs? Boss Shop is open 24 hours a day to care of any mechanical issues you may encounter while on the road.
