So much depends on trucking. Most of America's products are delivered by trucks and Arkansas is the heart of America's trucking industry. The Arkansas Trucking Association is owned by trucking companies and private carrier fleets (as well as important suppliers to the industry) from one-truck operations to some of the nation's largest trucking companies.
The Arkansas Trucking Association was founded in 1932 and is owned by trucking companies, private carrier fleets, and transportation industry suppliers that are dedicated to the promotion of goods that rely on the trucking transportation industry. The ATA is devoted to the more than 84,000 people in the state of Arkansas that depend on the trucking industry to provide reliable and safe transportation of goods and economic growth in America's heartland. The Arkansas Trucking Association encourages all of its members to participate in grassroots politics by contacting their government representatives in an effort promote the safety and economic benefits that the transportation industry contributes to Arkansas.
