Almost 400 trucking industry professionals will meet today, with the Australian Trucking Association’s online Technology and Maintenance Conference now live.
The ATA says TMC Online is a free and interactive event developed by industry, for industry. It will feature live, interactive sessions as well as of on-demand content.
“Together with PACCAR and its dealer network, we are extremely excited to launch TMC Online 2021, and are proud to be able to deliver valuable, informative content to industry no matter where they are located around the country,” ATA Chair David Smith said.
“With close to 400 delegates already registered, TMC Online demonstrates the importance of agile events and the benefits of delivering content in a flexible and accessible way”.
Delivering the latest industry updates, insights and guidance from trucking experts across Australia, TMC Online will look at key topics including:
- Electric trucks and their place in the future of freight
- What support is available to gain and retain workshop apprentices
- Productivity and safety benefits of wider trucks and trailers
- Never-before-seen data from the ATA’s rigid drawbar converter dolly trial
- Potential changes to vehicle inspections, defects and duties
Smith said that for the first time, the program features an energetic and hard-hitting Technical Q&A.
“Building on the success of our previous ‘meet the inspectors’ session, this is an opportunity for delegates to have their say and put their technical questions to the panel,” Smith said.
“Delivering TMC Online will allow us to connect with a much larger and broader audience than ever before and will allow our delegates to view the content whenever it suits them, regardless of the COVID restrictions they face,” Smith said.
“TMC Online is free, and I invite all industry members to register and take part,” he said.
TMC Online will run today and tomorrow. Registration is free.
