IMTA Maintenance Professionals Conference


Thursday, March 21, 2024 (8:30 AM - 5:00 PM) (CDT)



Maintaining a fleet of CMVs is of absolute importance to a thriving transportation company. The time commitment to keep company and driver-owned CMVs running safely and in compliance can be daunting. However, all time spent repairing CMVs is far outweighed by the positive results. Evolving technology on both tractors and trailers is impacting overall fleet maintenance. No one know for certain what CMVs will look like in 40 years, or even 20 years for that matter. However, we can make predictions based on what we know about the present by focusing on the priority at hand --- your day-to-day operations. While this conference provides the essential education to stay up-to-date and in compliance with your maintenance program, it is also a valuable opportunity to develop relationships and benchmark with others to positively develop both your individual success and company's program.
