The Wyoming Trucking Association was organized in 1939 as a result of the need for organized support and unity of the trucking industry in the state.
WTA is composed of trucking companies, or carrier members, and associated members who are the suppliers and support group of the trucking industry. Today, WTA membership includes more than 500 carrier members, ranging in size from one-man owner-operators to some of the state's largest trucking companies. WTA also has more than 230 supplier members, such as truck stops, motels, service stations, truck sales and service facilities, and factory representatives. While about 95 percent of WTA members would be classified as small businesses, WTA also receives support from major manufacturers and major long-haul carriers.
The primary concern of the Wyoming Trucking Association is the advancement of the interests of transporters of property or passengers by motor vehicle.
WTA seeks to:
Educate those involved in the transportation industry on both state and federal matters affecting their operations
Affiliate with and establish reciprocal relations with any other associations -- commercial or industrial -- and with American Trucking Associations
Express the views of its members on matters affecting the interests of those engaged in transportation of property or passengers
Foster and advance safety on public roads and highways
Do whatever is necessary to create and stimulate a fair and intelligent attitude on the part of the public with respect to the business of its members, and to accomplish fair and intelligent legislation with respect thereto
Promote and foster the business of its members, and distribute to such members and to the public accurate and reliable information on matters of transportation
Do everything possible to remove abuses from the business of motor vehicle transportation
In order to achieve these aims and objectives, the Wyoming Trucking Association, through its board of directors and trained staff personnel, maintains the following services:
10 conferences representing the specialized services of its members
a Council of Safety Supervisors
life and health insurance
lobbying efforts during the legislative session
a bulletin service offering detailed bulletins to all members
