MATS 2010

Who’s ready for the Mid-America Truck Show?  It kicks off next week on Thursday, March 25th, and lasts through Saturday, March 27th.  Of course, if you are affiliated with Mercer, you know that there is much more going on at Mercertown than just the truck show.  Take advantage of parking your rig at Mercer, and having us shuttle you to and from the show…for free!  Also, if you are planning on coming this year, try to be here be Wednesday morning.

  • At 9 am on Wednesday, we will have our annual Driver’s Forum, where you will get to participate in some Q & A with our General Management Group.
  • At 2 pm on Wednesday afternoon, our Safety Director, Len Dunman, will be speaking about CSA 2010.  We will also have an actual D.O.T. officer present as well.  I think CSA 2010 will be the most discussed topic at the show this year, so don’t miss this!
  • Wednesday evening we will have our annual night before the truck show cookout!  A great chance to have some good food, and hang out with your Mercer family.

I hope to see many of you there next week.  I will be at all of these events, as well as the truck show.  Can’t wait to spend some time with all of you.  Be safe, and go Mercer!
