Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administrator Ray Martinez will give an address at the 80th Truckload Carriers Association Annual Convention in March.

Martinez has spent his career working for the government on transportation safety and was recently sworn into office by Secretary of Transportation Elaine Chao.

TCA will offer attendees the opportunity to interact with FMCSA leadership and learn about the current agency’s activities and its potential impact on the future of the trucking industry. 

TCA’s 2018 Annual Convention will be held March 25-28 at the Gaylord Palms Resort & Convention Center in Kissimmee, Fla. The theme of this year’s convention is the Future of Truckload.

The event will feature panelist discussions of safety, managing a business, hiring the right people, and educational sessions on subjects like retention, practices of successful trucking companies, and new technologies like blockchain.

One session will feature a discussion on the ELD mandate and what has been learned in the 90 days since it was implemented. Topics of the talk will include operating efficiently and effectively with ELDs, the rule's impact on CSA scores, legal and compliance issues, and operational pitfalls that have arisen as a result of the mandate.

The convention will also feature more than 100 companies exhibiting products and services aimed ait improving productivity and profitability.
