ATA has been the leading advocate for the trucking industry since 1933, bringing together state associations, affiliated and individual members, and strategic partners to educate policymakers and the general public about the essential role trucking plays in the economy. From highway safety to environmental sustainability, members across the nation convene through online platforms, conferences, and directly because of the many programs and outlets ATA provides its members.
"Our affiliate and individual members are the voice behind America's trucking industry, and they have a lot to say," states Chris Spear, President of ATA. "The rate at which the global shipping and logistics landscape is evolving is unprecedented, and for national carriers to remain competitive, they must be hard-wired into what's happening in government, economics, state legislation, and technology.
