The Technology & Maintenance Council of the American Trucking Associations has just made it more affordable for smaller carriers to join the association and benefit from the group's information resources on spec'ing and maintenance issues.

The new category for Small Fleets (motor carriers with 100 or fewer power units) allows these fleets to join for only $150 annual dues.

Janet Howells-Tierney, director of council development for TMC, explains that the category is an expansion of the previous owner-operator membership category (added in 2006), which used to only cover fleets of five or fewer trucks, "to encourage more participation from smaller fleets, who frankly can get more out of TMC's benefits than any other category."

TMC’s Small Fleet members will be mailed the Recommended Maintenance & Engineering Practices Manual on CD ROM and have online access to all of TMC’s periodicals (weekly Transport Topics newspaper, monthly TMC newsletter, quarterly TMC magazine, etc). TMC’s RP Manual provides more than 450 individual industry-recognized standards to help fleets run their equipment more efficiently and cost-effectively.

TMC’s 2,400 members make up a network of equipment maintenance professionals – both from the motor carrier side and the suppliers of products and services – who work together to improve equipment maintenance throughout North America.
