Lytx Inc., the San Diego-based global leader in video-based driver safety, will have a strong presence at the Truckload Carriers Association (TCA) Annual Conference, March 8-11 in Kissimmee, Fla., highlighted by presentations on “Changing Driver Behavior Through Coaching,” which will be held in the conference’s “Trucking in the Round” sessions.

The trio will appear Sunday, March 8 from 12:30 to 1:45 p.m. and again on Monday, March 9 from 2:45 to 4 p.m.

“We are eager to bring details of our industry-leading success in video-based driver safety and CSA compliance to truckload executives from all over the U.S,” said Rob Bartels, senior vice president of trucking and transportation for Lytx. “Eight of the top 13 for-hire carriers have chosen Lytx. Our DC Highway program has been specifically designed with Truckload carriers in mind. It includes critical features such as ADAS integration, remote coaching, CSA management and driver-privacy.”

In addition, Merches and Dellinger will each speak in the Lytx booth (No. 201) during the event at the Gaylord Palms in Kissimmee. Merches will discuss J&R Schugel’s experience with Lytx at 6 p.m. Sunday, March 8, and Dillinger will speak Monday, March 10 at 11 a.m. about Cargo Transporters’ Lytx deployment.
