Government Freight Conference


The ATA Government Freight Conference (GFC) is the trucking industry advocacy organization that addresses safety, technology and business matters that arise when motor carriers offer their services to federal agencies. The difference between moving freight for a commercial shipper using mutually understood industry best practices, and moving freight for a federal agency are numerous and substantial. The GFC mission is continually to narrow the gap between agency habits and industry best practices, and to respond timely to issues that inevitably arise in the dynamic relationships that are unique to this market sector. While the challenges are significant, many carriers value the government shipper sector to diversify their book of business which tends to remain more stable during market down-turns. GFC leaders welcome all newcomers to government freight. We meet at every MC&E, via teleconferences, and also in conjunction with the National Defense Transportation Association when practicable. Information is key and the GFC distributes timely, relevant information to carriers in this sector. To get started, contact:
