TCA to Host Profitability Seminar December 12 in Chicago

First-of-its-kind meeting provides actionable insights for trucking leaders


ALEXANDRIA, Va. — Building on the continued success of the TCA Profitability Program (TPP), the Truckload Carriers Association will be holding its Inaugural TPP Profitability Seminar in Chicago on December 12, 2017. This one-day workshop is open to all managers and senior executives from North American trucking companies.

Attendees will be provided with an actionable framework to optimize profitability during, what is expected to be, a robust trucking environment for the foreseeable future. This framework will be focused on three key areas:

  1. Utilizing incentive-based pay to increase productivity.
  2. Understanding the Variable and Fixed Expenses in trucking using the Gross Margin Golden Ratio.
  3. Managing a high performing driver base. Building upon this, the event will also provide an in-depth look at market trends via inGauge ™, TCA’s cloud based business intelligence platform.

*As a bonus, the Tenney Group’s Spencer Tenney will present the 7 Best Practices for Succession Planning.

“This type of event is long overdue for an industry that is thirsty for information to separate trucking companies from the pack,” said TPP’s Managing Director, Jack Porter. “This workshop will provide actionable information for companies to take back and immediately leverage within their own operations – while also providing a glimpse of the format we use for our hugely successful Best Practice Group (BPG) program.”

TCA President John Lyboldt proposed this new workshop format, based on feedback from members. “One of our main value propositions to members is to provide vehicles to improve profitability and efficiency,” he explained. “This event will provide an attendee the chance to take a pause from their daily whirlwind, share best practices, and develop relationships with like-minded industry leaders.”

Prior to the event, attendees will be expected to complete a special group survey to ensure the content of the event is relevant to their roles and operations.

Special thanks to the event sponsor, the Tenney Group.
