The West Virginia Trucking Association is a statewide, non-profit, association of trucking companies, private fleet operators, industry suppliers, and other firms and individuals interested in the well-being of motor transportation at the local, state and national level.

We act as a liaison with many state agencies including the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV), Public Service Commission (PSC), Department of Transportation (DOT), State Police and State Tax Department.

Recent reports show the trucking industry in WV paid approximately $246 million in federal and state roadway taxes and fees. The industry paid 37 percent of all taxes and fees owed by West Virginia motorists.

“Ask yourself what is more important – your reputation or your bottom line?  You may want to debate it, but in the end the answer is easy—your bottom line is affected by your reputation.  That is why I believe it is necessary to be a member of the WVTA.   Being a member not only proves we are involved in the trucking industry, but shows we are committed to making our companies and industry the best  it can be.  Membership does not cost—it pays.”

- Fred Burns, Chairman, CEO of Burns Motor Freight.
