The TMTA has been approached by the Virginia Trucking Association in an effort to promote support of fair detention/demurrage/and per diem charges.  Below are two emails sent by Curtis Whalen, Executive Director of Intermodal Conference of The American Trucking Association. Also included is a recent Journal of Commerce article.

We encourage each of our members to submit a letter of support to the FMC by February 28th. The TMTA Board of Directors will submit one on the behalf of our membership.

The copy of the draft letter that Mr. Whelan refers to can be found here:
