Our Story

We're here to give you a hand whenever the need arises - as an adjunct to your transportation/logistics. Just pick up the phone and give Russ Matthews a call on his direct line 734-639-2826 or you can also send an email to him at: russ@iftlc.org. Our broad background in this field, backed up by one of the largest and most comprehensive transportation libraries in the country, can provide you with precisely the technical information you may require. We also have over 500 topical files to draw from.

While we haven't given up our role as an advocacy organization altogether, it will be far more limited than it was in the past, focusing primarily on matters affecting our industry before the trucking industry's National Classification Committee, which has responsibility for establishing rules, classification descriptions and ratings and packaging requirements published in the 
National Motor Freight Classification. To help you keep abreast of developments in the field of packaging, shipping, transportation and logistics, we publish an informative newsletter every month.
