Live, from Louisville

Well, it’s that time of year again. The time of year when industry suppliers and those who write about them converge in Louisville, Ky. for three jam-packed days of new product announcements.
It’s the Mid-America Trucking Show, and as journalists, we spend more time attending press conferences than taking in the Show’n’Shine or walking the show floor. Not that I’m complaining, it’s always interesting to see what new technological marvels industry suppliers have dreamt up. Most significant new products are unveiled at Mid-America and it’s nice to be among the first to get to see them. has a team of editors at the Mid-America Trucking Show and we’ve already started filing reports from the various press conferences. We will continue to do through the remainder of the week. You can check regularly for the most up-to-date coverage of the show. Mid-America-related stories are labeled ‘MATS Report:’
The May issue of Truck News and Truck West will also feature many stories from Mid-America so if you couldn’t make it here in person, don’t worry – we’ve got you covered.
