The Ontario Trucking Association went live this week with a fresh, contemporary website, loaded with tonnes of new information for truckers and multimedia features. Check it out at ontruck.org.
Users will notice a crisp new design, interactive graphics and user-friendly navigation. The website enhances all the popular elements of the previous OTA site, while adding several new tools and features.
Information is paramount in our ever-changing industry and the homepage’s emphasis on the latest transportation news, regulatory updates, research and business trends – in Ontario, Canada, and the U.S. – is designed to keep members informed and up-to-date, while also educating the media and the public about our industry.
The news and stats pages are now presented with bold infographics, colourful images and imbedded video. Plus, information is easily searchable, archived by category and ‘tagged’ to other related issues.
Want to see what sort of educational sessions, online or in-class training and webinars are on tap for members? Just click on the new interactive events calendar widget to see what’s coming up – even months in advance – and sign up online. Registering yourself or your staff for training, social events or joining the association — if (inexplicably) you’re still a non-member – has never been easier at Ontruck.org!
The Directories section, which includes Find a Carrier and the Suppliers Guide, is also much improved with more features, including members having the ability to update their unique pages. (We’re still ironing out some final wrinkles on these pages, so stay tuned in the coming weeks for more info about accessing your profiles in these sections).
But enough with our pitch. Go to the new Ontruck and take a look yourself.
*MEMBERS NOTE: Login instructions for members, board and executive will follow shortly. As mentioned, instructions for company point of contacts to login and edit individual carrier profile pages and the Buyers Guide for suppliers, will come in the following weeks.
