TCA 2016 Wrap Up: FSMA, Fleet Telematics and Funkytown

TCA 2016The Truckload Carriers Association (TCA 2016) annual convention in Las Vegas last week provided an ideal setting for us to catch up with existing customers, meet new ones and even bust a move or two at the Bell-Bottom Boogie Gala—for a good cause!

We had many interesting conversations but one topic that seemed top-of-mind this year was the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). With the reform coming out at the end of this month, there was a lot of interest from carriers of temperature-controlled cargo to learn how they can leverage technology—particularly telematics—to ensure compliance with the regulations and improve operational efficiencies overall.

With the conversations about FSMA just getting started, we look forward to diving deeper into the subject with customers and continuing the conversation at the upcoming TCA Refrigerated Division Meeting this July.

TCA’s convention was also the place for some of the industry’s best employers to get recognized. We would like to congratulate our customers, Bay and Bay Transportation, Grand Island Express, Inc., Landstar System, Inc., and Prime Inc. for being named in the Top 20 Best Fleets to Drive For®. A special mention also goes out to Bison Transport for winning the category of BEST Overall Fleet for LARGE CARRIER.

We thank our customers for coming out to support us and the TCA team for an outstanding event. See you next year!
