Save-the-Date: ATD Show 2018 Returns to Las Vegas from March 22 to 25

ATD Show 2018 (formerly the ATD Convention & Expo) returns to Las Vegas for four days from Thursday, March 22, to Sunday, March 25.



“Based on extensive survey data from ATD exhibitors and attendees, the decision was made to rebrand the ATD Show as an individual and separate exhibit experience for the commercial-truck audience with a streamlined schedule and exhibit hours,” said Tom Bertolino, ATD Show committee chairman.
 
The ATD exhibition, along with the general/speaker sessions, make meetings and workshops, will be held at the Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino. ATD’s headquarters hotel is Encore at Wynn Las Vegas.

“ATD members can also attend all of the NADA Show events,” added Bertolino, vice president of NorCal Kenworth in Sacramento, Calif.

Online registration for dealers and their managers, which includes an early-bird discount and hotel selections, begins Oct. 2, 2017. Learn more at www.atdshow.org.

Staff of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Air Enforcement Division met with ATD board members and dealer association executives in Washington, D.C., on June 22, to review issues involved with heavy-duty emissions tampering.

Class 8 Orders Surge 40% in June, Eclipse 18,000

North American Class 8 orders cleared 18,000 in June, a 40% year-over-year gain, according to ACT Research Co., as small and medium-size fleets continued to pull the market out of last year’s doldrums. Orders climbed to 18,100, up from 12,956 in the 2016 period, ACT said, citing preliminary data it will revise later this month. “As May was a little softer than expected, June was a little stronger than expected,” ACT Vice President Steve Tam told Transport Topics. May orders were 16,900, the weakest of the year.

Used Truck Volumes Up 35% in May; Pricing Stable as Dealerships Gain Sales

Used truck volumes rose 35% year-over-year in May amid stable pricing that led to gains in dealership sales, experts said. Same-dealer sales were 3,474 compared with 2,576 a year earlier, ACT Research Co. reported, based on its sample of dealers, wholesalers and auctioneers as well as a few large fleets. ACT uses the sample to determine average prices, age and mileage, and it includes about 13% of the total market, which is statistically enough to project market conditions, according to the company. By that measure, total sales in May rose to 26,723 compared with 19,830 a year earlier, ACT said. That lifted year-to-date sales to 134,676 compared with 114,276 in the same period of 2016.

National ELD Mandate Education Tour Set

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration is conducting an electronic logging device national tour to help educate commercial motor carriers about the ELD rule that goes into effect later this year. In a July 10 announcement, the agency said subject matter experts will lead driver-focused presentations and panel discussions on ELD implementation in several cities. The agency also will have FMCSA staff at an exhibit booth who will answer questions, provide consumer-friendly resources and materials, and review drivers’ and carriers’ responsibilities. The ELD rule, which will be enforced beginning on Dec. 18, requires all interstate carriers to convert from paper logs or logging software to a registered ELD if they do not have an automatic on-board recording device.
