Come See Us at MATS
The Mid-America Trucking Show is an incredible event that brings together just about every possible aspect of the industry in one place. It’s thrilling to see so many people with the same passion for trucking get to meet and discuss the latest industry trends. Attending almost guarantees that you will learn about something new or valuable to improve your business.
That will definitely be true at the TA and Petro booth this year. We have always arrived at MATS full-force, ready to answer drivers’ questions or help them resolve concerns, while spotlighting the services we offer at our locations all across the country. We have a lot going on again this year and we’re excited to share it.
Drivers who come and spend some time with us at Booth #19156 will walk away with more than a TA or Petro magnet. They’ll hear about a host of new products and services we are launching to bring an even higher level of efficiency to filling their on-the-road needs.
Look for news about exclusive-to-TA-and-Petro products, additional features to our TruckSmart® smartphone app, service expansions at various locations and more. Hear from industry experts and TA and Petro executives about what the future may hold. Join us for some fun and games — with prizes!
We’re happy to once again partner with Trucking Solutions Group for the MATS Health Awareness Walk on Friday, March 22, at 2 p.m. Trucking celebrities, including TA and Petro’s own Homer Hogg, will be on hand to walk and talk with participants. The Walk fits right in with our constantly expanding StayFit program, giving encouragement to drivers who want to take steps to better health.
If you plan to attend MATS, please drop by the TA and Petro booth. We can’t wait to talk to you and get your opinions on all that we have done and plan to do.
