Acadia has a robust dividend program for participants, with more than $160,000 returned to members in 2014. The MTAC Insurance program was developed by current program manager Marty Shea of Sinclair Risk & Financial Management (SRFM) after years of collaboration with MTAC, and as a result of his in depth knowledge of the transportation industry. Services offered by SRFM include Claims Management, OSHA review & trainings, Risk Management & loss control, safety practices, benefit concerns, and human resources.

Goodyear has set up special program for MTAC members. When purchasing Goodyear tires through any authorized Goodyear tire dealer, MTAC members who reference our national account number will receive discounted pricing on tires used for on-highway applications, off-highway, construction, and more. The program includes Goodyear as well as Dunlop products.

When the volume of tires purchased through this program increases, the discounts will increase. This is the benefit of a strong purchasing plan – small businesses combine their buying power to access bulk discounts that would not normally be available.
