Truckload Carriers Association to Provide inGauge™ Benchmarking Service to Members of Ontario Trucking Association

Service can help OTA members focus their efforts on the areas of business that drive efficiency and profitability

Alexandria, Virginia:

The Truckload Carriers Association (TCA) is partnering with the Ontario Trucking Association (OTA) to offer its inGauge™ Online Performance Benchmarking Service to OTA members. inGauge™ was created by StakUp Inc. and TCA to anonymously compare operational results on approximately 30-50 performance metrics against a chosen peer group, and share best practice knowledge to enhance future results. 

“Benchmarking is a common practice in many sectors throughout North America. However, the trucking industry, which is dominated by many privately held firms, has typically not been a sector where benchmarking has flourished,” said Stephen Leskowski, Senior Vice President of the Ontario Trucking Association. “We’re encouraging our members to explore the benefits of utilizing benchmarking tools. This is not outdated operational data… it’s real operational data from the ‘Main Street’ of trucking.”

By harnessing data and anonymously ranking members’ performance on “Essential Performance Indicators,” inGauge™ will help to identify and motivate OTA members to focus their efforts on the areas of business that could drive efficiency and profitability. Further, by adding filters based on geographic operating range and other important “subtypes,” inGauge™ will provide validation that the members’ efforts are making an internal and external difference.

In addition to providing this valuable service to the traditional segments of the Canadian trucking industry, a specific focus of this initiative will target specialized sectors. These specific groups, such as private carriers, tanker, and intermodal operators, have expressed a desire for timely and aggregated information to improve cost efficiencies. Niche operators, like those in the Quarter Load segment (a popular operating model for OTA members), will finally be able to access accurate data to develop better operating strategies.

This exclusive partnership for Canada is the first major data aggregation project initiated by OTA. Until April 30, 2016, OTA members can evaluate the service, free of charge, courtesy of OTA. After April 30, OTA members automatically qualify for a significant discount to the regular subscription fee.

OTA will host a free webinar about the service on February 17, 2016, from 12-1 p.m. ET. To register please click this link.

inGauge™ pricing is based on the number of active power units for each company and can be cancelled at any time (there’s no annual contract). To learn more about the program and to take advantage of OTA’s special offer, contact Chris Henry at by calling (519) 913-2582.
