MEMBER TESTIMONIALS:

Members speak out on the value of membership:

“Linde Canada Inc. has been a proud, long time and active member of the PMTC for 15+ years.  The PMTC has offered Linde invaluable insights and resources into the trucking industry.  From unique networking opportunities to timely educational seminars, the PMTC has consistently demonstrated that they are truly tapped into an industry that is constantly changing and evolving.  With that said, I believe the PMTC has truly demonstrated their passion and desire to make the industry better through the COVID 19 Pandemic.  During these unprecedented times, the PMTC has provided both the industry and its members with 24/7 support through countless lobbying efforts, real time news updates, and access to best practices to keep fleets safe and moving during the Pandemic.   It is this type of unparalleled leadership and guidance, that any member, large or small, can expect as being part of PMTC!”

Jim Dimech, Linde Canada Inc.

Kim Richardson, KRTS
 

“The PMTC is an invaluable source of information for our organization to understand the challenges our partners encounter to serve their customers. This can be through meetings, conferences, emails, website, or social media. The PMTC functions are also a great way to network with other members to gain more knowledge and what is new in the industry.”

Mike Kaslauskas, Penske Canada

  

“We continue to be impressed with the benefits we receive from our membership with the PMTC.  Not only are we kept informed of regulatory changes that affect our operations, we also turn to the PMTC as a reliable resource to provide answers to our specific operational questions that arise.  Youth in the industry can grow professionally and personally from involvement in the PMTC Young Leaders Group.  I have asked a lot out of our membership with PMTC and my expectations have been met and surpassed every time.   Leanne Drummond, CPC Logistics Inc
 

Many PMTC members core products and services fall outside of the transportation sector; however these companies choose to have private fleets to build their businesses. PMTC members are generally retailers, distributors and service providers, that understand transportation plays a major role in their success, efficiency, customer service needs and brand recognition. The PMTC supports these business members as the only national transportation association to represent private fleets. As a member there is great value as PMTC lobbies for your best interests, provides recommendations for your success and keeps the membership informed on trends and transportation related issues. Ted Dezsenyi, FedEx Ground, Canada Region
 

“Volvo Trucks has been an active member and supporter of PMTC for a number of years. No other association can provide your fleet with professional representation for success along with ensuring a positive image in today’s industry. If a fleet has 10 units or 100 units, all are welcome and represented equally. With 78% of private fleets operating less than 25 units, PMTC plays an important role in communicating and representing the issues of both the large and small fleets. Given today’s regulatory changes, technology advancements and safety improvements, PMTC members enjoy being out ahead and well informed for success in today’s environment.”  John Bowen, Volvo Trucks Canada
 

 “In my 15 years of involvement with the PMTC I have come to rely on the organization to provide excellent support on industry wide issues and to be a collective voice for the private trucking community.  Through active participation in the PMTC I have been able to network with other fleets and companies to drive better performance in my organization.” Kevin Riley, Maple Leaf Foods
