ATA CEO Spear Named to Fed Panel on Transportation Automation

| January 13, 2017

American Trucking Associations President and CEO Chris Spear has been named a member of the U.S. Department of Transportation’s transportation automation advisory committee.

Noted Spear: “Trucking is vital to the U.S. economy and an important part of our transportation system, so it is imperative that trucking and this association have a seat at the table when it comes to issues like autonomous vehicles, and we will be driving that outcome.

“While large-scale use of autonomous trucks is years away, the policy framework that will govern this future is being debated and ultimately written today, and I look forward to vigorously participating in those discussions on behalf of the trucking industry.”

Spear was one of 25 individuals representing a diverse range of modes and interests that have been named to the committee. The group committee will meet for the first time on January 16.
