What’s new in the world of trucking operations, customs/border and HR/labour issues? Only one industry event covers all the latest developments and networking opportunities under one roof!
The inaugural OTA Council Summit Day in 2016 was a huge success, attended by over 300 industry professionals looking to make their businesses more efficient and profitable. This year’s sequel, set for June 21 at the Westin Toronto Airport hotel, promises to be even bigger and better. Don’t miss this amazing opportunity to network with professionals in your field and learn about the latest on ELDs, GHG regs, enforcement trends, AMPS penalties and new border initiatives, marijuana legalization, accident liability – and tons more.
This year we are also featuring Electronic Logging Devices (ELD) 101 & Mandatory Entry Level Training 101. Both these half-day sessions are geared towards carriers who have not yet transitioned to ELDs or prepared for MELT.
The three council sessions run concurrently, so we encourage you to bring a co-worker from another department to cover all the topics. Flying solo? No problem. Just register for any one session to help us organize seating, but feel free to bounce around and sit in on any council sessions throughout the day.
This full-day, low cost event features a networking continental breakfast, buffet lunch and numerous expert speakers.
Registration is open to all OTA carrier and allied trade members at special membership rates. Click here to register or sponsor! If you’re a OTA supplier member, this event is an excellent low cost opportunity to either sponsor or showcase your product.
OTA also extended this opportunity to Indo Canadian Chamber of Commerce (ICCC) carrier members. If you work for a motor carrier, but are not a member of either OTA or ICCC, don’t sweat it – you can still participate. Please click here and complete the ‘request to register’ page. Non-OTA supplier members will only be registered if they join the association. Click here for more info on joining OTA.
