A few of the ATA Business Solutions being launched include:
• ATA Safety on Demand, a revolutionary web-based system that will help companies provide critical driver safety training any time, any where there is an internet connection;

In addition, ATA Business Solutions will include the complete line of the industry-standard ATA Technology & Maintenance Council (TMC) products and services, as well as ATA’s highly regarded industry economics reports.
“No other organization has greater trucking-related expertise on its staff and in its membership than ATA,” said Graves. “Through ATA Business Solutions, we have created an opportunity to leverage this unique capability to help members and others in the trucking industry. We see this as another strong service, along with our advocacy, outreach, and legal efforts.”
