For the better part of the last 75 years, the NWGTC has been a primary link within the transportation community in Northwest Georgia. Strategically located between major metropolitan areas of Chattanooga TN and Atlanta,GA, Dalton,GA is home to some of the largest floor covering manufacturing companies in the world! As a result, it is also home to many and various modes of transportation providers, both large and small. The NWGTC was started as a means of networking providers and consumers to build a stronger transportation community within the northwest Georgia area. In years past, the cities of Rome, Lafayette, Calhoun and Chattanooga have played particularly important roles in our organization. Today, the reach of the NWGTC stretches not only to the transportation community, but to the rest of the community as well.

NEWS: ATRI LAUNCHES ONLINE DRIVER SURVEY ON KEY INDUSTRY ISSUES
Arlington, VA – The American Transportation Research Institute (ATRI) today launched an online data collection to solicit commercial driver perspectives on a number of top industry issues. The driver feedback will be utilized in several ATRI studies focused on transportation infrastructure funding, the driver shortage, and improving highway safety.
ATRI initially collected driver input on these topics through a survey at last week’s Mid-America Trucking Show (MATS) where ATRI staff collected over 500 driver surveys. The online version of the same survey conducted at MATS will allow larger numbers of
professional drivers to weigh in on these important topics.
“Driver involvement is so critical to ATRI’s research and we were extremely pleased with the number of surveys completed at MATS,” said Rebecca Brewster, ATRI President and COO. “We encourage drivers to spend a few minutes completing the online survey so that driver opinions are included in the research on these timely issues.”
The survey is available online HERE
