The customers benefit from the President’s Club by being part of a team that has vast knowledge in dealing with breakdowns and repairs. We offer breakdown hotline services and provide customers with the assistance needed to keep them on the road.

Understanding how the components of the truck operates, is the first step in being a successfully owner-operator.

All members are encouraged to inspect the truck thoroughly before leaving. In the event that a mechanical issue is found, the service shop fixes it for free!

American Truck Group Sponsors Annual Mississippi Trucking Association’s Truck Driving Championship

GULFPORT, Miss., April 23, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — American Truck Group announced their sponsorship today of the Mississippi Trucking Association’s (MTA) annual Truck Driving Championship.

A tradition that goes back almost 40 years, the championship includes 93 truckers from 16 companies, and is expected to draw around 600 spectators. Steven Boudreaux, MTA’s Director of Safety and Membership Development, says that the competitors are “the best of the best,” drawn from all across Mississippi. The judging panel is made up of highway patrol and Mississippi Department of Transportation (MDOT) officers.

Not limited to driving skill, the competition itself begins at 1 PM on Friday, April 25th with a written test followed by a pre-trip check test. The driving test begins at 8 the next morning, and includes two courses with eight obstacles like diminishing alleys, offset alleys, front stop, and more. The winner will go on to compete in the nationals, held in Pittsburgh this August.

Headquartered in Jackson, MS, the MTA has held the competition on the Mississippi Gulf Coast every year before Hurricane Katrina in 2006, when they were forced to temporarily move to Tupelo while the Coast recovered from the storm’s damage.

American Truck Group is sponsoring the event both to maintain its long-standing relationship with the MTA and in the hopes that events like these can draw more interest in truck driving jobs, an industry hit hard by the recession.

ATS Promotes Samantha Cook to General Manager

GULFPORT, Miss., December 16, 2013 – Hard work pays off, and if you don’t believe me then just ask American Trucks Showrooms General Manager Samantha Cook. (www.americantruckshowroomsatlanta.com).

Cook, born and raised in D’Iberville, MS. graduated from D’Iberville High School and attended Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College. She began her career with American Truck Showrooms in 2003 as a Customer Service Representative, and has managed to climb her way up the corporate ladder. In 2010 she became a Customer Liaison, and then in February 2013 she transferred to Atlanta to assist with opening of the new location.

“I’ve prided myself in providing the best customer service care possible. The employees and the truck drivers are my family and I make sure they are treated that way, I absolutely love my job and could never see myself being anywhere else other than where I am at today with American Truck Showrooms,” Cook said.

As the general manager for the American Trucks Showrooms location in Atlanta, Cook has been able to break through the “glass ceiling”.

This trend is becoming increasingly common and in the present day women are filling more roles in industries once dominated by men. General Motors recently appointed Mary Barra as the new Chief Executive Officer after working for GM for 33 years.

American Truck Showrooms (www.americantruckshowrooms.com) is a truck dealership with locations in the Gulf Coast region and the Atlanta area.  The company has developed a special niche in the owner-operator market, offering a “Rent to Buy” program. For many owner-operators, this provides a perfect solution for working toward truck ownership and the start of their own trucking business.
