The Technology & Maintenance Council is a diverse group of industry professionals who work together to improve truck equipment and technology.
TMC develops industry-recognized recommended practices that are used by fleet managers to efficiently specify and maintain vehicles. TMC’s industry best practices also provide guidance to manufacturers in the design of their equipment.
TMC's predecessor organization began in 1956 as the Maintenance Committee of the Regular Common Carrier Conference (RCCC) when a small, but select group of maintenance directors sat down with representatives from the truck manufacturing community to discuss recurring equipment maintenance problems. In 1979, the organization joined the American Trucking Associations' federation as a technical council of ATA known at that time as "The Maintenance Council." In 2001, TMC changed its name to the Technology & Maintenance Council to better reflect its evolving mission.
Since then, TMC has grown into an organization of more than 2,300 members with representatives from virtually every sector of the industry: fleets, owner/operators, manufacturers, suppliers, service providers, educators, press, association representatives and technicians.
