Founded in 1938, the Delaware Motor Transport Association, Inc. (DMTA) was organized to allow trucking companies to do collectively what they could not do individually within the State of Delaware. The association is the only formally established trucking industry trade organization in the State of Delaware. There is strength in numbers! The more members DMTA has, the stronger and louder the voice will be during those times of legislative and regulatory battles.
The DMTA, along with other sponsors, holds frequent educational seminars on industry topics to keep its members informed
. The Delaware Motor Transport Association publishes a quarterly newsletter, and weekly "Truck Fax" to keep its members up to date.
The Delaware Motor Transport Association holds the Delaware Truck Safe Driving Championship in May. The winner in each class is given the opportunity to move on to the national championships. The DMTA also hosts an awards banquet in November to honor the Delaware Motor Transport Association driver of the year. In addition, at this banquet, a $500 scholarship is awarded to a deserving member of the community. This award is to be used at the Delaware Technical and Community College, Delaware's top truck driving training school.
The DMTA was organized to promote the common business interests of persons engaged in the motor transportation industry; and is dedicated to effectively representing the concerns of the trucking industry to members, government and regulatory agencies, and the general public. We are further pledged to assist companies of members in managing the impact of change in the trucking industry and to enhance the professional and economic growth of its members. Our primary functions are as follows: To work with the legislature and regulatory agencies to foster, promote and preserve a strong economic climate in the State of Delaware; to partner with enforcement agencies to develop and support safety initiatives that protect the motoring public; to provide a forum for continuing education through seminars, workshops and conferences; to disseminate positive industry information to the press promoting the industry; as well as being available to our members for personal assistance whenever the need arises.
