Highlights from the Mid-America Trucking Show
This past week TMC exhibited at the Mid-America Trucking Show in Louisville, KY. It has been more than 10 years since TMC took a truck to the show and the experience was one our group will never forget. For anyone who has never attended the truck show, it is an event not to be missed for trucking fans. With more than 1,000 exhibitors and upwards of 80,000 attendees it is the trucking event of the year.
From Thursday when the VIP session opened until the show closed on Saturday, the TMC booth was buzzing with activity. During this time we met some great people, visited with some old friends and introduced people to the company that we love.
The centerpiece of our booth was the new TMC fleet truck the 579. The truck was polished to perfection and stole the show. While we may be a bit biased, our truck really was the cleanest, sharpest looking company truck there. We had visitors young and old hop up into the cab to experience first-hand Peterbilt's newly designed, spacious cab. Many could not believe that each new truck came with a 22-inch flat screen.
One of our favorite moments at the show was when we chatted with Scott Dawson of SE Warehousing and Logistics. Scott was a driver with TMC for just over a year. He came to TMC right out of CDL School and now owns his own logistics business. He stopped by the visit us and thank TMC for giving him a start in the transportation industry. We are so proud of Scott and his accomplishments.
The highlight of the show is always the trucks. So many amazing trucks outfitted with flashy paint jobs and unique customizations. Here are a few of our favorite trucks from the show.
