LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Another Mid-America Trucking Show has come and gone, and once again it was a whirlwind of new product announcements, state of the industry reports and pulled pork sandwiches. Truck News has all the highlights of the show (minus Kentucky’s famous pulled pork sandwiches, for better or for worse) in a special section from pages 54-71.
While there were no earth-shattering new product launches at this year’s show, there was still plenty to report on.
Much of the talk this year revolved around the environment; specifically anti-idling solutions gaining CARB approval, and lowemission transport solutions such as hybrids and alternative fuelpowered trucks.
Also of note at this year’s show was an overview of selective catalytic reduction (SCR) technology, provided by Daimler Trucks. Daimler was defending its position to adopt SCR after claims by a competitor that called the technology into question. You can find that on pg. 87.
The Mid-America Trucking Show is the largest stage for OEMs and suppliers.
