Amplifying Your Supplier Voice

Joining MEMA's advocacy efforts is simple — really simple.

A collective voice is an incredibly powerful tool to amplify the commercial vehicle industry’s voice on regulatory and legislative policy issues impacting the industry — and the issues continue to stack up exponentially for HDMA member companies.
 
That includes the supply chain issues currently causing members concerns: from the ongoing semiconductor shortage to the bottleneck at the nation’s ports. Compounding that, we are facing surface transportation reauthorization legislation, the expedited push from Congress and the White House pertaining to electric and automated trucks, the heavy-duty NOx rulemaking, workforce development, FET on commercial vehicles, and truck safety mandates. The list of major ongoing challenges for the entirety of the industry just keeps growing and it’s enough to make one’s head spin.
