Trucks are the backbone of the American economy and central to our way of life. Anytime the government makes a decision that affects trucking, the impact is felt by everyday consumers and the millions of businesses that could not exist without trucks.
American Trucking Associations is an 86-year old federation and the largest national trade organization advocating for America's trucking industry, with affiliates in all 50 states. Together, our federation represents more than 34,000 motor carriers and suppliers, covering every sector of the industry -- from LTL to Truckload, agriculture & livestock to auto haulers, and from large fleets on down to the independent contractor and small family-run operations.
Our federation has members in every single Congressional district and delivers to every U.S. community. More than 80% of communities nationwide rely solely on trucks to move their goods.
