Private motor truck council of Canada



PMTC is the only national association dedicated to the interests of the Private Trucking Community, and your best source of information on issues affecting fleet operations. Without the PMTC, private fleet managers could spend a great deal of their own time searching for the information they need to keep up to date with rapidly changing regulations that affect fleet operations.

Membership gives you the equivalent of an extra office – one that is a resource for transportation and labour questions, information, and issues that fleet managers must deal with. The PMTC helps you keep your fleet running smoothly and without incident.

Because our members are seldom in competition with one another they are often willing to share information or advice, and as a PMTC member you have access to the experience of those fleet managers. Our office is adept at finding other private fleets willing to share experience in areas in which you have questions.

PMTC ensures that its members have current information with respect to regulatory change and management practices. We do this through a communications program that includes a monthly newsletter, a magazine, an electronic bulletin service, our website, seminars dealing with current issues, and our annual conference. The annual conference is a major undertaking for the PMTC and provides first class educational opportunities, a chance to celebrate some of the good things in trucking, and the opportunity to exchange ideas with other fleet managers and industry suppliers. Members who attended our annual conferences universally praise the seminar content and the contacts they make, simply by investing some of their time.  PMTC publications keep you abreast of what you need to know to work successfully in the private trucking community.

The PMTC is well known for effectively educating government about the issues affecting private fleet operators, and working to maintain the right to private carriage.

The PMTC plays a key role in the truck transportation community and membership offers many benefits.  Associate Members benefit from close association with private fleet operators, and identification with the goals and objectives of the PMTC.  Our members are encouraged to shop within the membership, wherever possible, for the products and services they need to make their businesses more effective.  PMTC conferences and social events are also excellent forums for networking with fleet operators and suppliers and for exchanging important information on Canadian trucking.
