From November 5-7, National Tank Truck Carriers (NTTC) hosts Tank Truck Week (TTW), the premier tank truck industry exhibition where more than 1,100 gather annually. The three-day event in Nashville TN will feature companies from across the tank truck industry, a wide variety of educational workshops, and opportunities for members and aspiring members of the tank truck industry to connect.
At TTW, more than 100 companies from multiple sectors of the tank trucking industry will promote their products and services in the exhibit hall at Nashville’s Music City Center. Surrounding the booths will be more than 60 tank truck trailers of all types and specialized for countless products. Major equipment manufacturers, specialized technology companies, and government agencies make up the wide range of Tank Truck Week’s exhibitors.
“Tank Truck Week presents the best opportunity for people and companies in all sectors of the tank truck industry to connect,” said Daniel Furth, NTTC president. “The programming advances our safety mission with state-of-the-art trainings in safety, tank wash, technology, and maintenance.”
in 2013, NTTC expanded the size and scope of Tank Truck Week. Continuing that growth, NTTC’s Safety & Security Council and Tank Wash Council will for the first time meet at Tank Truck Week 2018, along with all of their committees and subcommittees.
Retired First Sergeant Matt Eversmann, hero of the Battle of Mogadishu (Somalia), will deliver the keynote address. Best known for his portrayal by Josh Hartnett in Black Hawk Down, Eversmann will speak on the importance of duty, courage, and selfless service to succeed when ordinary circumstances become extraordinary challenges.
On November 7, NTTC will celebrate Armed Forces Appreciation Day. To demonstrate NTTC’s appreciate for the armed forces, all active military personnel and veterans (including National Guard and Army Reserve) will receive free admission for TTW with a valid military ID. NTTC hopes to introduce the tank truck industry to military personnel who may be looking for a rewarding career after their military service.
