Trucking Issues

From safety to the environment and from the economy to engineering, American Trucking Associations is the leading authority on all of the issues facing the trucking industry.


Overview & ATA's Position

Such policies include the use of alternative fuels, increased domestic production, and uniform state and federal fuel regulations.​
