John Sommers II for TT

American Trucking Associations’ Technology & Maintenance Council said the theme for its 2015 annual meeting and transportation technology exposition will be “Fueling the Future.”

The meeting, which will take place Feb. 16-19 at the Music City Center in Nashville, Tennessee, will include discussions on alternative fuels and fuel economy standards as well as tire-deployment strategies.

“Each year, thousands of trucking professionals attend TMC’s annual meeting to learn the latest in trucking technology and maintenance practices, and 2015 will be no different. With fleets more conscious than ever about the bottom line, getting the most out of your equipment is of paramount importance.” Carl Kirk, vice president of maintenance, information technology and logistics, and TMC executive director, said in a statement.

For the first time, the exhibit hall will feature an “Alternative Fuels Pavilion” as part of the 400 exhibitors, according to TMC.

The meeting also will include a discussion called “Green Trucks, Green Incentive,” a how-to guide to develop and implement an alternative-fuel vehicle program.
