The Technology and Maintenance Council (TMC) of the American Trucking Associations (ATA) kicked off its annual exhibition this past Monday, Feb. 16. The exhibition features new trucking technology from 400 different vendors, with their items spread across a vast 370,000 square foot room.
The TMC strives to provide new equipment and technology for trucking services. Products at the event include advancements in subdivisions of truck loading, municipal operations, private operations, and more. Furthermore, the exhibit features an Alternative Fuels Pavilion to educate attendees on resourceful, new ways to fuel trucks.
While the TMC promotes new parts and technology, it also emphasizes the proper maintenance of them. Included in their purpose is a goal to foster proper management of new items. They support the ATA technology and Engineering Policy Committee research. This reciprocal relationship enables the Council to work with and be up to date on new policies and trucking advancements.
While the exhibit and other efforts of the ATA are all beneficial, they can be expensive. If a company is not receiving payment on their invoices on time, finances that could be directed towards new technology may not be available. Fortunately, in such situations, the freight factoring services provided by TBS Factoring Service could be of significant assistance. To learn more, call us at (800) 207-7661 today.
