American Trucking Associations’ Technology & Maintenance Council (TMC) has opened registration for its 2018 Annual Meeting & Transportation Technology Exhibition, to be held March 5-8, 2018, at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta.
Driving Excellence Through Expertise is the theme for this year’s Annual Meeting, which includes a strong slate of educational sessions, and a complete technology tradeshow featuring experts from the trucking industry’s top manufacturers and suppliers, TMC says.
“The trucking industry is literally the backbone of the U.S. economy – delivering 70 percent of the nation’s freight,” says ATA President and CEO Chris Spear. “That work is only possible thanks to the efforts of our industry’s technicians and maintenance personnel who keep our nation’s wheels turning. The TMC Annual Meeting is a critical part of that effort, setting standards and demonstrating the latest technology and trends for our industry.”
“In 2018, TMC will focus on driving excellence through expertise,” says TMC Executive Director Robert Braswell. “The Council’s 2018 Annual Meeting carries on its tradition of providing thought leadership with a focus on ways to improve sustainability and fuel efficiency.”
During the week, TMC says more than 100 industry task forces will meet to resolve issues critical to trucking fleets, as well as a broad offering of technically oriented educational sessions, addressing emerging powertrain technologies and vehicle electrification, next generation training technologies and practical means of applying telematics data and sound management principles to maintenance and equipment specification.
With more than 5,000 people in attendance every year, TMC’s Annual Meeting & Transportation Technology Exhibition remains the premier event for fleet management, offering a comprehensive array of information vital to the growth and success of the trucking industry.
