NCTA’s Brand New Guide to North Carolina Trucking

We have exciting news to share with you…
Together with the North Carolina Trucking Association, we’ve created a brand new publication to accompany NCTA’s stellar magazine, Tarheel Wheels. It’s a membership directory and buyers’ guide showcasing NCTA corporate members.
It’s called NCTA’s Guide to North Carolina Trucking and we believe you’re going to love it! Here are a few things you’ll want to know…
   • It is an annual publication with a nice, long shelf life making your ad dollars stretch even farther.
   • It contains free listings of all NCTA members, both carriers and suppliers alike.
   • Trucking companies are listed alphabetically with key contacts included. Allied companies are listed both alphabetically and categorically by what products and/or services the provide.
   • We have direct-mailed it to a vast database of readers created by NCTA that includes more than 8,000 highly targeted trucking and shipping executives.
   • This Guide to North Carolina Trucking is now considered our Q1 Spring publication for 2019. The remaining three editions will be Q2, Q3 and Q4 of Tarheel Wheels.
So, if you’re able to agree to a four-time placement agreement as a Tarheel Wheels advertiser, you will receive the same great, discounted, decreased rate compared to what you were paying before MPG started publishing Tarheel Wheels. It’s a win-win!
For more details, please email our publisher at for personalized attention.
Thank you to all of our amazing advertisers for your business and your support — We would love to promote you and we appreciate your making this publication possible!
Happy viewing!

Tennessee Trucking News Q4 Winter 2018-2019


Tennessee Trucking News has hit the streets with another awesome edition. This edition features Tennessee Senator Paul Bailey and his company, CB Trucking, as our cover profile and Dan Kanabroski and his company, Centrality Business Technologies as our Member Spotlight. We are delighted to tell their stories!

Also in this edition, on page 26-27, you’ll find a lovely tribute to  Bill Reed, Skyline Transportation. He was a tremendous individual who passed away at the end of 2018. With his passing, he left a gigantic hole in the trucking industry and in the hearts of all those who adore him. We will miss him sorely.

Tarheel Wheels: the Digital Edition

The digital version of North Carolina Trucking Association’s newest edition of Tarheel Wheels is officially out on the streets and desks of transportation executives across North Carolina! And, this is MPG’s first edition to publish for NCTA. We are confident that you are going to love this magazine!

Visiting with some drivers….Freightwaves published an interesting piece…

We wonder if the gentleman in the cover image accompanying this article is happy with the headline of this article. He’s the guy in the story who said, “ELD: It is what it is; you got to go with the flow. Before, on paper, there was always the ability to adjust things, you know.” Either way, we like to hear what drivers are saying about the topics we continue to cover.
Our favorite lines of this story…
“WHAT I LIKE: The things I get to see. Left to my own devices. Can sing at top of my voice.”
Yeah, we like that, too.
