Up Front - 的Power of Association Continues

Lane-kidd-2013

From 的President's Desk

 

的‘power of association’ is a phrase we often use. 的phrase is perfect in the way it describes how the 阿肯色州卡车运输协会 (ATA) has consistently performed well for its’ member companies. Simply put, the 结社的力量 is about leveraging the collective strengths of individual companies. Conversely, the 结社的力量 describes the benefits that accrue to individual companies from the collective knowledge of the whole.

有许多类比可以说明其运作方式,但是从本质上讲,这可以归结为我们所代表的公司数量上的实力,尤其是当这些公司处于业务最好的公司之列时。

考虑美国最大和最赚钱的货运公司。对于他们的整个管理能力和他们所做的一切,如果协会不这样做,那些大公司的经营和经济环境将大不相同。’代表他们的利益–他们的盈利能力也是如此。

现在,有些高管会怀疑该声明的真实性。他们认为自己和自己的公司是有效的。但是考虑一台中国制造的平板电视。有多少成本因素影响电视从始发地到目的地? 

的loading and unloading requirements in international, national, state, and local protocol, clearances, labor laws, rules and regulations, national and state taxes, and fees, all of these factors affect a transportation company’做生意的成本。

各个公司几乎不会对结构,系统,成本或任何这些因素的合规性产生任何影响。如果公司处于观望状态,他们只会对给出的结果做出反应。如果他们参与协会,则可以帮助制定流程并确定制定这些因素时的结果。

协会也可以促进行业发展–通过消除障碍,节省资金或为其行业创造新的机会。无论大小,所有公司都将从中受益。

的power of association also spreads knowledge and wisdom. Information shared on the common issues experienced by all companies makes the whole industry more efficient. Everyone wins –或至少每个参与此过程的人。

并非所有公司都参与其中,不幸的是,对他们而言,他们缺乏成功常常表明了这一点。它’相当简单。如果您想成为赢家,请与赢家闲逛。那’这就是为什么一些最大,最成功的公司的高管们彼此相处的原因– at the ATA’的会议,论坛和理事会。

因此,阿肯色州卡车运输报告的读者超过25,000,我们’d邀请您的公司(无论是否在阿肯色州)体验‘power of association’在2014年加入阿肯色卡车运输协会。

如您所知,货运不’不要停留在州界线上,我们协会的工作也不会。我们的业务范围始于小石城(Little Rock),一直延伸到华盛顿特区,在那里,许多影响您的环境和我们的会员公司的问题都已确定。

的阿肯色州卡车运输协会 offered a wide variety of services to its member companies and executives. Plus, we were engaged in advocating specific legislative and regulatory achievements to improve the operating climate for our member companies. Here are some of the results of our work in 2013:

公司所有者最终得到保证,当他们在阿肯色州购买新的或二手的卡车或半拖车时,他们可以免税,因为阿肯色州大会通过了使这一重要豁免永久化的措施。按照目前的销售量,这项免税额将为卡车公司每年节省约2100万美元。

的State of Arkansas will find it more difficult to reclassify an owner operator who gets hurt on the job and files a claim that he was actually an employee of the trucking company.

业主运营商现在将有与公司司机同等的机会获得工人赔偿保险,而不会损害其作为独立承包商的地位。

的Arkansas Highway Department and the trucking industry will jointly work to improve commercial vehicle safety enforcement, training, education, and promote ways to move freight on our highways more efficiently with the creation of a $2 million annual fund that will, for the first time, dedicate money for these purposes.

到2016年,得益于阿肯色州的工作,所有商用卡车都将需要安装电子记录设备,以跟踪驾驶员的驾驶时间’国会代表团通过了这项立法。

再次感谢阿肯色州的工作,货运公司将在2014年访问国家数据库,以识别以前在DOT规定的毒品和酒精预就业考试中测试呈阳性的任何人’国会代表团。

在阿肯色州小石城举行的2013年阿肯色州卡车运输协会业务会议上,一百三十五(135)家公司的代表参加了此次会议。 (Make计划于2014年5月21日至23日在布兰森希尔顿酒店和会议中心加入您的同事。)

的Arkansas Trucking Championship hosted 121 drivers and 83 technicians in the Arkansas Truck Driving Championship, the Arkansas Maintenance &由阿肯色州公路警察竞赛组织的技术冠军赛和商用车安全检查竞赛。

的ATA 安全管理委员会 (SMC) consists of 77 companies and 166 executives who regularly meet on issues related to state and federal regulations, driver issues, and safety compliance. 的SMC met eight times in 2013, on such topics as pre-employment screening program, highway bill, post-crash inspection, Level 1 Inspection demonstration, medical card requirements, hours of service, OSHA compliance.

的ATA Maintenance & Technology Council (MTC) is comprised of 72 companies with 188 representatives. 的ATA MTC met 8 times in 2013 and covered topics such as: technician training sessions, natural gas technology, collision avoidance demonstrations, reduced stopping distance, and diesel particulate filter technology.

的ATA 40 Under 40 Council currently has 34 transportation executives representing 17 different corporate members. Members of this council must be nominated by their company and approved by the ATA Board of Directors. 的Council met three times during 2013 and speakers included political consultant Bill Vickery, ATA president Lane Kidd, ABF Freight System president and CEO Roy Slagle, and U.S. Senator Mark Pryor Chief of Staff Andy York.
