TORONTO, Ont. – Canada’s most comprehensive and interactive trucking industry news Web site just got better.
Trucknews.com now boasts a new look and new features. All the features you’ve come to expect on Trucknews.com can now be found in the menu bar along the top of the page.
New to the site is a prominent window displaying Truck News’ social media activities, including a Twitter feed and Facebook fan page which will be updated in real-time. The Facebook fan page is new – you can become a fan and interact with the Truck News staff, professional drivers and other industry stakeholders on our Facebook site. You can also post pictures of your truck or anything else you’ve come across while on the road.
Also new to Trucknews.com is a Feature Story section under the video window which will include in-depth feature articles from our print editions. Don’t forget to check out our award-winning videos. Our weekly episode of Transportation Matters is prominently displayed on the home page and you can click More Videos underneath to visit the complete archives.
Another new feature on Trucknews.com is a poll on the lower right hand side of the page, which will be updated regularly. Have your say in the online poll and see how others have responded.
The Industry Blog will remain a fixture on the new Trucknews.com. This section features blogs from Truck News editors, prominent industry executives and on-road editor and full-time professional driver Harry Rudolfs. You can read and comment on any of the blogs, which are all regularly updated.
Speaking of commenting, you can now comment on any of the news articles that appear on Trucknews.com. Just enter your comments in the window that appears below the article. Keep it clean and appropriate, and a Truck News editor will approve the comment in a timely manner and allow you to have your say.
The CyberCB message board is still an important part of Trucknews.com. You can find the link in the menu bar at the top of the page or in the Online Networking section. A recent change we made allows you to read the discussions in the forum without registering, but you’ll need to register in order to post in a thread. There, you’ll find discussions on a range of issues impacting the industry and if you don’t find what you’re looking for, you can create your own thread.
To delve into a topic in more depth, visit the Knowledge Centre section of the site for individual modules on items ranging from truck maintenance to owner/operator business skills to human resources.
And finally, if you’re looking for a non-driving job in the transportation industry or you’re looking to hire, visit Truck-Ops for a full listing of current job openings. If you’re a driver, you can search for jobs by choosing the Careers tab in the menu bar and selecting Driver Recruitment.
