For the first time since February 2020, a veritable lifetime ago, the American Trucking Associations’ Technology and Maintenance Council (TMC) held its usual meeting and exposition, this time in the fall rather than in the winter and held in Cleveland, Ohio—right in Fleet Equipment‘s backyard. With that being the case, the crew at Fleet Equipment was on hand to cover all the news, meet with industry newsmakers and see the latest products and innovations firsthand.

Below, you can see some of the sights of the show, and you can also catch up on all the news here.

First up: the bright and notable red engines of Cummins.
The latest Freightliner trucks were of course present as well.
Peterbilt-TMC
Peterbilt’s traditional red trucks were joined in the booth by something new: a PACCAR electric truck charging station.
Volvo’s booth celebrated 25 years of the VNR on-highway truck models.
Mack’s trucks showcased their aerodynamics offerings in a slick color scheme.
The International A26 engine was front and center in the Navistar booth.
Hyliion has been making news left and right lately, and their Hypertruck ERX was on display for curious showgoers at TMC.
The Kenworth T680 and T280 appeared side by side at the booth.
Of course we can’t forget about suppliers—among them the vast array of products showcased by Hendrickson…
… the safety and braking technologies of Bendix…
…the tire and service offerings of suppliers like Goodyear.
Trailer manufacturers like Great Dane had telematics on full display.
Hyundai Translead also made news at the show
