MILTON, Ont. – The Private Motor Truck Council of Canada (PMTC) has unveiled the full agenda for its 2019 Conference scheduled for June 12-14 in Niagara Falls.

The conference kicks off on June 12 with the council’s annual general meeting and an evening PMTC Young Leaders Group Pre-Conference Cocktail Reception hosted by Volvo Trucks Canada.

The seminar schedule for June 13 includes a transportation legal update, introduction to the 2019 PMTC benchmarking survey and a U.S. regulatory update, and how to use data to monitor and improve fleet safety.
