ATA MCE 2021: The photo gallery

Packed with truck technology, pulsing with electrified energy, the ATA MCE 2021 show wraps up a second half of 2021 trade shows that aimed to make up for lost time in 2020. And the shows delivered. Where ACT Expo offered sustainability excitement and TMC’s Fall Meeting brought us back down to a productive reality, ATA MCE 2021 seems to offer the best of both worlds: Eyes on the future with feet firmly planted in the challenges and opportunities today. We’re still scouring the show floor for this year’s truck equipment and solutions theme, and while we do that, peruse this extensive photo gallery to take in the sights of this year’s show.

(Editor’s note: Up top, we have Peter Voorhoeve, president of Volvo Trucks North America, front and center during Volvo’s press conference. He announced that Producers Dairy, a Central California-based dairy processor and direct-to-store supplier, has placed an order for two Volvo VNR Electric trucks, and that Watsontown Trucking Company and Camrett Logistics, have placed orders for their first Volvo VNR Electric trucks to make sustainable deliveries to Volvo Trucks New River Valley Assembly Operations in Dublin, Virginia.)

Gotta kick things off with a ribbon cutting. The Safety Sammy mascot is adorable.
Peterbilt had its full lineup of newly announced trucks on display. From its new medium-duty lineup to the new Model 579 to the Model 579EV.
Navistar announced fuel efficiency updates to the International A26 engine platform.
Kenworth touted its zero-emissions electric truck and PACCAR charging equipment solutions.
Mack brough the aero efficiency with the decked out Anthem. Check out our overview of the truck’s features from TMC.
Platform Science had a big presence at the show.
TuSimple shows that automated truck technology is anything but simple.
Video’s role in driver training was front and center.
Seriously, video was a big talking point at the show.
And talk about a big video presence. Isaac made a splash talking about Canadian ELD certification.
