Your questions answered. To celebrate the 50th episode of Terminal Exchange, we spoke with American Trucking Associations (ATA) President, Chris Spear.
After acclimating to Nussbaum’s headquarters, Mr. Spear sat down with a Phillip full of questions – your questions – to answer.
We dove right into the nitty-gritty following a brief overview of the ATA. From how he cuts through the politics on Capitol Hill to what it looks like to make the American Truck Driver’s story known.
We broach HOS flexibility, driver shortage, nuclear verdicts in trucking, and what ELDs mean for the future of trucking technology.
And through it all, the ATA President remarks on how he and the ATA represent the mid- to small-size carriers of the nation. Did you know that 80% of ATA members are companies with less than 20 trucks?
