The Truckload Carriers Association’s Refrigerated Division is hosting its annual meeting this week on issues related to the operation of temperature-controlled trailers.

This event, which runs Wednesday July 10 through Friday July 12 at the MGM Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket, Connecticut, allows carriers to meet with their peers to discuss problems, share ideas, and seek solutions unique to their specialized area of operations.

Chester Elton, author of All In, will outline how the best managers create a culture of buy-in and belief to drive real results through a simple, 7-step roadmap.

Another session will feature a panel of truck dealers discussing how to create strong partnerships, one truck at a time.

The division will also host Bob Costello, the American Trucking Associations’ chief economist and vice president, who will provide a forecast for the trucking industry, specifically its refrigerated segment.

A highlight of the meeting will be the Trucking in the Round workshops:  interactive discussions on topics such as transportation costs, driver demographics, alternative fuels, and the impact of healthcare reform.
