DON MILLS, Ont. — Truck News is taking the pulse of the nation’s trucking community and for those who participate it means a chance to win lots of great Truck News gear.

The new State of the Industry survey aims to glean information and opinions on not only truckers and carriers, but also all three levels of government, shippers and even Canada’s leading source for trucking related news and views, Truck News.

“We’re very excited about this project,” says John Curran, editor of Truck News. “There are a lot of assumptions made about Canada’s pool of professional drivers and owner/operators, while some may be true, there’s no way to know for certain without asking.”

Running through until Jan. 31, the State of the Industry survey form will be featured in both the January and February issues of Truck News and Truck West. Fill it out and mail it back to Truck News, State of the Industry, 1450 Don Mills Road, Don Mills, Ont., M3B 2X7. Additionally, industry representatives can access an automated survey sheet here at

“On the home page, simply click on the button marked ‘State of the Industry’, answer all of the questions and hit ‘submit’ when you’re done,” explains Rob Wilkins, publisher of Truck News. “What could be easier than that?”

While all of the information will be confidential — in that no name will be physically attached to any of the answers — if you take the time to include your personal information, you’ll be entered in a draw to win fashionable and functional Truck News gear.

“We appreciate people taking the time to tell us what they’re thinking about the industry,” add Curran and Wilkins. “When we say we’ve got the industry covered, we literally mean it.”
