Mid America Truck ShowNearly 70,000 attendees and 1,000 exhibitors from across the country will come together March 27-29 at the Kentucky Expo Center in Louisville, Kentucky for the Mid America Trucking Show (MATS), the largest annual heavy-duty trucking event in the world. This event is more than a tradeshow. It is an annual forum for the trucking industry and provides face-to-face interaction between industry representatives and trucking professionals.

Attendees participate in the MATS to gather information on the latest products and services that could greatly impact their business. Exhibitors flock to the show to introduce new offerings, increase brand awareness, and promote their products. The MATS is where the perfect union of suppliers, customers, and prospects comes together, and where innovative ideas are sparked.

Each year Louisville Switching exhibits the newest Kalmar Ottawa Terminal Trucks at the MATS. We are there this year as always with the new T2 off-road and the new T2 Dot model. We will be in booths 20030-1 and 20050-1.

As the industry's premier business venue, MATS offers attendees the best opportunity to network, research new industry ideas, products and services, and gain insight into current topics with other trucking industry employees from around the world. It has been said of the MATS, "No other show offers more under one roof than the Mid-America Trucking Show."
