TORONTO, Ont. — The Canadian Trucking Alliance (CTA) and the Technology and Maintenance Council (TMC) are hosting a two-day conference for equipment, IT and logistics professionals Nov. 12-13.

"Truck operators in both Canada and the United States deal with the same technical issues and equipment, it is a natural fit for CTA to partner with TMC to deliver a high caliber conference," says David Bradley, chief executive officer, Canadian Trucking Alliance. "The program will draw upon TMC’s strengths in developing high caliber content and attracting leading speakers yet will be tailored to the Canadian operating environment."

The theme of the conference is "Harnessing Technological Change" and the program is slated to include: The effect of Transport Canada’s vehicle certification requirements on Canadian manufacturers and fleets; getting the most out of fuel, lubes and air systems in cold weather; recruiting, retaining and certifying equipment technicians; trailer spec’ing; and maintenance performance of the 02 engines.

It will also include IT sessions on such topics as managing multiple mobile assets and keeping up with the Web services revolution. The conference is being held in conjunction with the Ontario Trucking Association’s annual convention. For more information, call 416-249-7401.
