The American Trucking Associations (ATA) will sponsor a one-day conference in late April to help chart the future of the U.S. truck safety rating process.

The U.S. Court of Appeals struck down the old safety rating process for motor carriers in March and the government has temporarily stopped issuing safety ratings while it searches for a new formula.

Representatives of the Federal Highway Administration’s Office of Motor Carriers will attend, as will members of the trucking industry, insurance industry, shippers and law enforcement officers.

“The trucking industry and the public need a safety rating system that is evenly applied and performance-based,” says ATA president Thomas Donahue.

He says the conference is an opportunity for all interested parties to come together. n
