The new president of the National Truck Equipment Association (NTEA) has stressed the important link between the Canadian and US trucking industries, and recently announced he believes this relationship will strengthen.
Canada and the US have always been each other’s greatest trading partners, but also wants the relationship to continue to grow in ongoing globalization.
With NTEA offices located in Washington and Ottawa, members are tasked to work together to protect and advance each other’s interests.
The NTEA is working with Transport Canada to release rear backup camera regulations, and held an educational session on the US variety last month.
The US version of greenhouse gas regulations for trucks was released in 2016, and the NTEA plans to work on its proposal for phase 2 now as well.
Another focus of the NTEA is to provide members with advice on cross-boarder issues through its Ottawa office, and visit with Canadian members to get feedback on other concerns.
