Moving & Storage Industry
The American Trucking Associations (ATA) is honored to welcome members of the moving and storage industry into the ATA Federation. By joining forces, moving and storage members will have a seat at the table in formulating policies affecting companies operating heavy-duty trucks on our nation’s highways. Joining with ATA provides the moving and storage segment a significant boost in advocacy firepower on Capitol Hill and before the regulatory agencies while also allowing the broader trucking industry to present a more unified front before lawmakers and regulators.
Moving & Storage Conference
We have hit the ground running in setting up the ATA Moving & Storage Conference in order to begin representing you. Moving & Storage leadership are developing Conference by-laws for the Conference membership to approve and we are working to build a benefit program for your industry to enjoy as ATA members or ATA Conference members. Bill Sullivan, ATA’s EVP of Advocacy, along with Katie McMichael, Director of the ATA Moving & Storage Conference, are helping to develop issue priorities for the Conference, as well as recommend committees that should be established within the Conference.
ATA is offering an arbitration program and a BOC-3 program to its moving and storage members. If you currently participate in the programs administered by AMSA, it is our understanding that those programs will continue until ATA’s programs are up and running. ATA will offer an arbitration program for its moving and storage members that they can designate for resolving disputes with shippers, which should be operational by October 1st. ATA moving and storage members will be covered by ATA’s BOC-3 program after filling out the required paperwork. We anticipate that program to be available by October 9th. We are working with AMSA to ensure that their programs remain in place until you have an opportunity to join ATA and take advantage of our offerings.
Frequently Asked Questions
ATA understands that everyone joins an association for different reasons. We also understand that as you join a new association you may have questions. ATA has developed a FAQ to help answer many of those questions. This document will be updated with additional program information as soon as we learn more or fully implement a new program. If you have additional questions, please contact Elisabeth Barna, EVP of Industry Affairs and Senior Advisor to the President and CEO or our membership department.
