The trucking industry is constantly faced with new challenges in the realms of safety and policy. The rules and regulations under which we operate change not only from year-to-year, but at times, month-to-month or even day-to-day. Just understanding these revisions is often confusing enough but making sure they are actually implemented can prove time-consuming and burdensome.

TCA presents the latest offering from its regular webinar series aimed at keeping you current on the U.S. regulatory and legislative environment, and as an added bonus, on industry trends. Updates on what is important to you, as well as essential rulemakings that may present themselves in the near future, will be provided. Walk away knowing how these regulations and industry trends will affect your operations and gain the guidance and information you need to fine-tune your current policies and procedures, and prepare to design new ones.
