The Internet Truckstop freight matching service and Instructional Technologies Inc., which offers interactive, computer-based driver training, are collaborating to provide the Pro-Tread Training Series through to owner0operators and small trucking companies.

ITI's Web-based interactive Pro-Tread training allows drivers to complete safety, regulatory and hazardous materials (hazmat) training during periods of non-driving downtime via a high-quality in-cab multimedia experience -- or at home.

"Offering outstanding products and business opportunities to the customers of Internet Truckstop has always been our mission. Often times owner-operators and small trucking companies can't compete with large transportation companies simply because their drivers don't have the same access to great training," said Leigh Foxall, director national accounts, Internet Truckstop.

Pro-Tread will be available at under the "training" tab, winter of 2010.
