MNTDL participated and attended the Annual Membership Meetings and Conference recently for the Maryland Motor Truck Association. MNTDL found great value in attending and learned a great deal about the Transportation Industry in Maryland. Maryland is preparing for the expansion of the Panama Canal to expand Port Business and become one of largest if not the largest Port on the East Coast. There was also a significant amount of discussion and education concerning alternative fuels, especially CNG. United Parcel Service provided a great seminar on Alternative Fuels, and how UPS is taking the reins as a leader in the industry. There was also some great information learned about Affordable Health Care and how it will impact not only the Employer, but also the Employee.
