National Minority Trucking Association and SelecTrucks Establish a Partnership for the Future.

Atlanta, GA, June 06, 2015 --( The National Minority Trucking Association (NMTA) announced the launch of a partnership with SelecTrucks, a division of Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA). This partnership makes it possible for both NMTA members and SelecTrucks to harness the power of diversity to drive business for the used truck industry.

"NMTA is always looking for opportunities to provide benefits and cost savings to our members so forging a partnership with SelecTrucks just made good sense," said Kevin Reid, CEO of NMTA. Under this partnership, NMTA members will be able to participate in specially designed programs to assist in purchasing a truck that will help their bottom line without sacrificing the quality and safety of their truck fleet.

SelecTrucks offers a wide selection of used trucks throughout its retail network of commercial used truck dealerships across the U.S. and Canada. SelecTrucks Centers offer customers high quality used trucks, with industry-leading warranties, and a variety of custom financing options. With this partnership, NMTA members can visit any of the 23 SelecTrucks locations and work with a used truck sales expert who will act as an advisor during their truck purchase process.

Angelique Pierce, manager of marketing and pricing for Daimler Trucks Remarketing, and Kevin Reid worked side-by-side to create the partnership. Pierce shared, "SelecTrucks is serious about trucking and we believe that our corporate efforts to drive diversity will enrich our customers' businesses and thus the industry overall. We live and breathe a culture of diversity, so creating this partnership with the NMTA was a logical and meaningful next step."

Pierce added, "We also wanted to solidify the partnership in a way that would make NMTA members know we are here to support them. So we created an exclusive program that gives NMTA members the choice of $3,000 toward a down payment match, $3,000 toward the purchase of new tires, or $3,000 toward the purchase of warranty on any qualifying truck they buy from a SelecTrucks Center. In addition to the options above, each eligible vehicle sold to a NTMA member will include a one-year, RoadSide Select membership which provides 24/7 roadside assistance on services such as towing, flat tire repair, winching/extraction, and much more. Now that's a way to start a partnership!" NMTA members can call (877) 503-1840 or visit for more information.

NMTA and SelecTrucks share the belief that diversity is a growth strategy - not just an obscure program, policy or project. "We know how important it is for organizations to have meaningful diversity programs so we are always seeking partners that are serious about enhancing their involvement in the minority community," said Reid. "SelecTrucks has proven that their commitment to increasing minority participation is a core value so we are excited to partner with them and assist in achieving that goal."
