It’s the Big 5-0: Will You Be at MATS?

It’s back! After two years off due to COVID-19, MATS is back in force on March 24-26, 2022 at the Kentucky Expo Center in Louisville, Kentucky.

The Dock411 team couldn’t be more excited, and we can’t wait to see you all again in person. Best of all, we have all new updates to our popular and award winning facility profile software

Whether a driver needs advice on which street to approach a warehouse from or simply wants to know if there is a bathroom they can use before they get back on the road, our software makes it easy to get the information they need. And it’s even easier for shippers to use our software to boost their visibility and reputation.

Why Should You Go To MATS?

MATS is the biggest trucking show in the country and there’s something for everyone. If you’re new to the show, or just aren’t sure attending is worth your limited time, let us show you what you’ll be missing:

  • Over 40 seminars that help you stay up to date with industry changes while strategizing how to adapt to the changes affecting all drivers
  • The ability to connect with recruiters and drivers to learn more about opportunities to grow your career
  • The chance to explore new technologies and products that make your life on the road easier (including the Dock411 database!)
  • Fun activities including the annual PKY Truck Beauty Championship featuring elite custom show trucks, a Friday night concert, a truck and tractor pulling competition, a beer garden, and more!

Most of all, MATS is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, and you don’t want to miss out on the celebration. Of course, we’ll be there as well, and we’d love to connect with you.

The Dock411 team is in booth 68208, in the southeast corner of the West Wing. Our team members will also be walking around, connecting with you, and catching up. Come say hello!

Exciting Dock411 Announcements

While the pandemic has been hard on everyone, we’ve been spending the time working hard to make Dock411 even more useful to drivers and shippers. We’ve got a lot of exciting new features.

Rather than describing them here in a blog, we want to show you in person. That’s why you’ve got to be at MATS and come by our booth.

Let me just say, the changes are significant and are going to make your life as a driver or shipper much easier. There’s nothing like making key information easier to find, access, and understand to keep your wheels rolling on schedule.

Come visit our booth to discover our exciting new features!

Let’s Grab a Bite to Eat!

Besides the show itself, we always love to connect with drivers and other MATS attendees over some food and drink. This year, we’ll be in two different locations, one on each night. 

On Wednesday, March 23rd, right before the show kicks off, we’ll be at our old standby, Hammerheads. This place is incredible and we’ve gathered here for several years at MATS. It’s in the basement of what looks like a home in a residential neighborhood, but don’t let that throw you off. The food and experience are second to none, and you won’t regret giving this place a try.


On Thursday, March 24th, we’ll be spending the evening at Agave and Rye, an upscale Mexican restaurant with an incredible bar, funky decor, and a huge patio. You’ve got to come out and give the epic-mega tacos a try. If you’re looking for something different, consider the rice bowls, tortas, or incredible appetizers.


Our Dock411 team will be on the lookout for MATS attendees, so please stop by the restaurant of the evening and say hello. We’re available to answer any questions you have and share our extensive industry knowledge.

See You in Louisville

We’re very excited to have MATS back on the calendar and can’t wait to see you in Louisville. Remember, we have some exciting new features rolling out on Dock411, and you want to be the first to know about them.

Come visit our booth and stop by our restaurant hangouts in the evenings. It will be a great time!
