TMC Releases Recommended Practices Manual

American Trucking Associations’ Technology & Maintenance Council has published its 2014-2015 Recommended Practices Manual.

The updated manual includes more than 40 new, revised or reissued recommended practices adopted by TMC as of May 2014.

“This is one of the trucking industry’s best resources for truck maintenance, testing and specification information,” said Carl Kirk, vice president of maintenance, information technology and logistics for American Trucking Associations. “This latest version includes important updates to existing recommended practices and adds numerous new ones that cover the latest technologies and provide for improved efficiencies and safety for fleets, big and small.”

The two-volume set includes TMC’s Recommended Maintenance Practices Manual and Recommended Engineering Practices Manual. The combined manuals have more than 3,100 pages of technical information.

The manual is available in print or electronic media in either single-user or multiuser versions, according to TMC.
