It is fair to say that in the work truck world, the annual NTEA – Association for the Work Truck Industry Work Truck Show is kind of a big deal. And once again, North America’s largest work truck event broke all records with 11,905 industry professionals in attendance. The event was held March 1-4 at the Indiana Convention Centre.
The Work Truck Show 2016 brings together truck fleet managers, dealers, equipment distributors, and other industry professionals every year to learn about the latest technologies, participate in educational sessions, and even enjoy exclusive ride-and-drive opportunities.
One of the most valuable aspects of the whole experience is the opportunity to meet directly with industry professionals to learn about the pressing issues affecting their day-to-day operations.
While Canada and the United States have made some progress in recent years, regulatory issues and border irritants continue to hamper Canadian and U.S. businesses that move people, parts, or products across the border. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s historic state visit to Washington is an encouraging sign that both the Prime Minister and President Barack Obama will work to deepen long-standing strategic collaboration in key areas like the border.
