New truck show all about business

July 24, 2017 by John Smith

TORONTO, ON — The North American Commercial Vehicle Show (NACV Show) won’t look like other trucking events across the U.S. when the doors open from September 25-28. There will be no recruiting pavilion; no show and shine competition. Not even drivers walking the halls. But when the inaugural event opens in Atlanta, Georgia, it will feature an undeniable focus on the business of trucking.

Trucking for a Cure driver wins HighwayStar of the Year

July 27, 2016 by Dave Nesseth

MISSISSAUGA, ON – A driver well known for her work behind the wheel of a pink truck became a little more famous Saturday, winning Newcom Business Media’s HighwayStar of the Year.

Highland Transport driver Joanne Millen-Mackenzie has been behind the wheel for nearly 25 years, but has become known more for her efforts against breast cancer. Her Trucking for a Cure convoy has travelled highways across the country, raising awareness and scores of cash in the process – $85,000 in 2015 alone.

“Women need to know we can do what we want out here, and there’s nothing we can’t be,” says Mackenzie, before she hoisted a winner’s cheque for $10,000. “It’s not who’s going to let you, it’s who’s going to stop you.”

MacKenzie is the first female winner of the prestigious Highway Star of the Year award, sponsored by Freightliner, Chevron, Eberspacher and OBAC.

The Brockville, ON resident had her family on hand for the award presentation at Truck World, hosted at the International Centre. But not all her family was there. MacKenzie’s Aunt Anna died from breast cancer years ago; and Mackenzie herself is a survivor of the disease that has since become the second leading cause of death from cancer in Canadian women.

“I’m just so proud of her,” said MacKenzie’s brother, Steve Millen. “If they weren’t doing this, who would be doing this?”

World comes to Toronto for Truck World 2016

April 11, 2016 by Dave Nesseth

TORONTO, ON – The Toronto area’s International Centre will be at the centre of the trucking industry once again, as the Truck World trade show opens its doors April 14-16.

It’s where suppliers display their best and brightest, and in many cases offer the first look at new equipment.

The bi-annual event that traditionally attracts 20,000 visitors celebrates drivers as much as trucks. Sharing the spotlight will be the winner of the 2016 Highway Star of the Year Award. “This is one of the highest honors for a Canadian trucker, and clearly one of our favorite moments on the Today’s Trucking calendar,” says Today’s Trucking editor John G. Smith. The winner, selected from candidates across the nation, takes home $10,000 in cash and other prizes.

The world is coming to the event in other ways as well. This year’s Truck World will also feature Desi Trucking magazine as an official South Asian media partner, reflecting an increasingly diverse workforce.

“Growing ethnic communities are an important part of the trucking industry and it’s time to make a better effort at bringing the whole industry together under one roof,” said Joe Glionna, vice-president of Newcom Business Media, which hosts Truck World.
