Lexington, United States - November 15, 2019 /PressCable/ —

The Independent Truck Repair Group (iTRG), is proud to announce it will be hosting advanced diesel technician training focusing on Aftertreatment System Maintenance at its upcoming Tradeshow & Training Conference in Minneapolis December 6-9, 2019.

The intensive three-day diesel mechanic training class is designed to showcase best-practice, advanced strategies for proper Aftertreatment System Maintenance, as technologies continue to be refined to adhere to evolving emissions-reduction mandates. The Aftertreatment System Maintenance Training Course will be taught by industry-leading instructors that have over 25 years’ experience in training.

According to John Stoeckinger, President of iTRG, the advanced training course, “Deep Dive! Electrical Emissions and Aftertreatment System Maintenance” was the course most requested by independent truck repair shop owners, and diesel technicians. “Our members and peers overwhelmingly requested this course for our December conference, as problems continue to plague the trucking industry when it comes to proper Aftertreatment Maintenance,” he said.

Continuing Stoeckinger said, “As the industry continues to evolve, and mandates for emissions standards continue to change, the need for proper cleaning and care cannot be understated. Although from a maintenance standpoint, newer Aftertreatment Systems have fewer defects, the cost of repairs for failing to keep any Aftertreatment System properly maintained is still just too costly for owners to sustain. That’s why we have invited all diesel technicians, and independent truck repair shop owners to attend this valuable training course.”

In addition to the Electrical Emissions and Aftertreatment System Maintenance Course, iTRG is also hosting an Advanced Electrical Training Course at the December 2019 Tradeshow and Training Conference in Minneapolis. The announcement of that intensive training course follows the release of a new study iTRG conducted, which found that after attending an Advanced Electrical Training Course provided by iTRG, diesel mechanics were able to drastically reduce the time it took to diagnose electrical problems by more than 90%.

Robert “Buck” Monson, iTRG Principal and Owner of Monson Truck and Trailer, Inc. had this to say about the December event, “We’re really looking forward the conference because it gives us the opportunity to provide independent truck repair shops with the information and education, they need to maximize efficiency, increase revenue, keep their customers coming back.”

The 2019 iTRG conference will be held in Minneapolis, MN December 6-8, 2019.

Europe's specialty food makers brace for US tariffs

Dec 11, 2019

MILAN — European producers of premium specialty agricultural products like French wine, Italian Parmesan and Spanish olives are facing a U.S. tariff hike due Friday with a mix of trepidation and indignation at being dragged into a trade war they feel they have little to do with. The tariffs on $7.5 billion on a range of European goods were approved by the World Trade Organization as compensation for illegal EU subsidies to plane maker Airbus. The U.S. has some leeway in deciding what goods it puts tariffs on. So while it is taxing European aircraft goods an extra 10%, it...

Asian stocks gain after US, China announce truce on tariffs

Dec 11, 2019

BEIJING — Asian stock markets have risen after Washington and Beijing announced a truce on tariff hikes in a trade war. Benchmarks in Shanghai, Hong Kong and Seoul advanced. Japanese markets were closed for a holiday. President Donald Trump agreed Friday to put off planned tariff hikes this week on Chinese goods in a fight over Beijing's trade surplus and technology plans. In exchange, he said China would buy American farm goods. But the two sides reported no progress on basic disputes that sparked the 15-month-old fight that threatens global economic growth. Friday's truce "has simply temporarily halted the escalation...

Impeachment dominates, but much other work awaits Congress

Dec 11, 2019

WASHINGTON — Impeachment may have leapfrogged to the top of the national agenda, but members of Congress still have their day jobs as legislators, and they're returning to work this week with mixed hopes of success. It's a difficult-to-predict time when it comes to possible deals between President Donald Trump and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who's kicked off the impeachment inquiry. An important trade agreement has a pulse. An effort to deal with prescription drug prices seems stuck. Divided government has produced scant results thus far, except for a small-scale budget deal that lawmakers are struggling to put in place....

Kosovo election winner in no rush to restart Serbia talks

Dec 11, 2019

PRISTINA, Kosovo — A left-wing party leader poised to become Kosovo's next prime minister said Tuesday he isn't in any rush to restart formal talks intended to normalize relations with Serbia and won't lift the previous government's 100% tariff on Serb imports. In a general election held Sunday, Albin Kurti's Movement for Self-the Determination, or Vetevendosje, defeated center-right political groupings formed by former Kosovo Liberation Army fighters who had governed since 2007. Kosovo, a former Serbian province, declared independence in 2008, a decade after an insurrection by KLA fighters and Serbian strongman Slobodan Milosevic's bloody crackdown launched a 1998-99 war....
