HALIFAX, N.S. — The Atlantic Province’s Trucking Association (APTA) says it is ready to address the issues the industry is talking about at the fleet group’s 51st annual meeting in Halifax.
The three-day event will include seminars touching on topics such as border management, drug and alcohol testing, U.S. safety ratings and facility audits as well as an update on the Port of Halifax.
“Longstanding issues such as high fuel prices, Marine Atlantic Ferry Service, weights and dimensions and a shortage of qualified truck drivers will also be up for discussion,” says the APTA.
As well, a number of awards will be doled out to attendees and distinguished guests. These will include Driver of the Year, Service to Industry, Good Samaritan, Safety to Motor Transportation, and Dispatcher of the Year.
