OTA is a nonprofit, full-service trade association formed to promote and protect the interests of the trucking industry in Ohio. Membership includes over 1,100 company members, including both Ohio-based and non-domiciled carriers, and their suppliers. OTA caters to carriers of all sizes, in fact 54% of its current members operate 15 or fewer vehicles.
Membership in the Ohio Trucking Association gives you access to the latest trucking information, plus the OTA is like an extension of your own staff that is just a phone call away when you need solutions. The Ohio Trucking Association's list of motor carrier industry services can help you save money and their staff keeps you updated on critical trucking industry issues through news briefs and bulletins. OTA also serves as Ohio's only liaison between the trucking industry's regulatory agencies and the Ohio Legislature.
The Ohio Trucking Association holds an annual convention, as well as regional meetings, seminars and workshops, and monthly Safety & Maintenance Council meetings on topics relevant to the motor carrier industry, truck drivers, bus operators, and common carriers, like driver recruitment, tire safety, substance abuse testing, safety compliance and hazardous materials. OTA publishes an annual Membership Directory listing all the information you need to contact other members. The Ohio Trucking Association's website hosts a supplies catalog where truck drivers can find many helpful forms.
