Moving & Storage Industry
The American Trucking Associations (ATA) is honored to welcome members of the moving and storage industry into the ATA Federation. By joining forces, moving and storage members will have a seat at the table in formulating policies affecting companies operating heavy-duty trucks on our nation’s highways. Joining with ATA provides the moving and storage segment a significant boost in advocacy firepower on Capitol Hill and before the regulatory agencies while also allowing the broader trucking industry to present a more unified front before lawmakers and regulators.
Moving & Storage Conference
The ATA Moving & Storage Conference has been established and the membership elected their Board of Directors, Executive Committee and Officers. ATA continues to build a benefit program for the industry to enjoy, such as Arbitration, Agents of Process and an Affinity (discount) programs. Bill Sullivan, ATA’s EVP of Advocacy, along with Katie McMichael, Director of the ATA Moving & Storage Conference, are helping to develop issue priorities for the Conference, as well as recommend committees that should be established within the Conference.
ProMover is a certification program that gives consumer an easy way to separate reputable, professional movers from “rogue operators.” The ProMover certification takes the worry and the hassle out of moving by helping consumers identify professional movers who have agreed to abide by high standards and by providing information and assistance with everything from finding a mover, to getting an estimate and packing tips, to understanding valuation and insurance.
ATA is offering an Arbitration Program for its moving and storage members so that they can designate for resolving disputes with shippers.
Moving and storage members will have an opportunity to participate in ATA’s Agents of Process/BOC-3 program after filling out required paperwork. (Please contact Jakelyne Cardoza for additional information.)

ATA is working on certification and training programs and will update this site as soon as they are available. While ATA works to develop these programs, many of our members will continue to display AMSA certifications that they earned as AMSA members and their corresponding logos. ATA members may also promote the many awards they were honored to receive during their membership with AMSA. ATA is proud of those members and look forward to working with our members on similar programs.
