The outdated tax adds tens of thousands of dollars to the cost of a new commercial truck, while keeping older, less safe and less fuel-efficient ones on the road longer, ATD says in a new video.
The national award, sponsored by ATD, Heavy Duty Trucking magazine and Procede Software, recognizes commercial-truck dealers who demonstrate a track record of success in dealership management, service to the industry and community impact.
It marked the eighth straight year that ADESA has held an auction at the NADA Show to benefit the NADA Foundation’s Frank E. McCarthy Memorial Fund, which supports Canine Companions. To date, the auctions have raised $460,118.
“Repealing this 102-year-old tax remains our No. 1 priority. This tax discourages the deployment of today’s cleaner, safer and more fuel-efficient heavy-duty trucks,” said ATD Chairwoman Jodie Teuton. “And this year, we won’t be alone in the fight. We now have some strong industry allies.”
“The current posture of the U.S. economy is strong,” Manzi said at a press briefing during the NADA Show in San Francisco.
The election was held at the ATAE winter meeting in San Francisco in conjunction with the NADA and American Truck Dealers (ATD) shows.
“NADA is proud to showcase our world class education designed by the best subject matter experts in the industry, alongside our development team, to come up with the most relevant ways to make our dealers more successful today,” said Hal Wurster, vice president of NADA Dealership Operations.
The national award recognizes commercial truck dealers for industry leadership, business performance and community service.
