Transportation Technical Services (TTS) has released the 2001 edition of its National Motor Carrier Directory, which lists 27,000 individual trucking companies that operate in the United States. To qualify for inclusion in the directory, motor carriers must file an annual report with DOT or state PUC, and respond to a four-page mail survey or answer the survey questions by phone.
Each carrier profile in the directory includes CEO name and title, headquarters address, motor carrier and DOT number, Standard Carrier Alpha Code and revenues, plus the specific number of trucks, trailers and tractors owned or leased by the company. Types of commodities hauled by each carrier are also described.
The directory is available from TTS for $295, with each additional copy costing $95. For more information, contact TTS at www.tts trucks.com or 888-ONLY-TTS.
The Specialized Carriers & Riggers Assn.'s 14th Annual Oversize/Overweight Transportation Symposium will be held March 8-10 at the Peabody Hotel in Memphis, Tenn. For more information, phone 703-698-0291 or visit www. scranet.org.
