WVTA Buyers Guide

The West Virginia Trucking Association was formed in 1932 to bring about an organized and uniform effort within the trucking industry for increased highway safety as well as public education on the importance and value of commercial vehicle transportation. To that end, the Association has some 260 member companies and is involved in legislative representation, government relations and many highway safety programs.  The WVTA is an integral part of the American Trucking Associations (ATA) headquartered in Washington, DC.

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 represent businesses engaged in the transport of goods and services throughout the state.

We represent both family owned and corporate trucking businesses with interstate operations.

We are an association owned and operated by its members for their mutual benefit, governed by a board of directors elected from the general membership. We provide programs and activities specifically designed to assist members in finding solutions to day-to-day and long range problems and needs. Overall, an association whose members belong to an association that belongs to its members. The mission of the WVTA is to serve and represent the interests of the trucking industry with One United Voice by:

  • Promoting safety and security on our highways and among our drivers;
  • Advancing the trucking industry’s image;
  • Providing educational programs;
  • Influencing in a positive manner state governmental actions; and
  • Promoting a healthy business environment in our state

Trucks transport the "tangible" goods portion of the economy, which is nearly everything consumed by households and businesses. In West Virginia, nearly everything we use is transported by truck including building materials, machines, food, logs and lumber, mining equipment and other industrial products.

Nearly every good consumed in West Virginia is put on a truck at some point. As a result, the West Virginia trucking industry hauls nearly 70% of all freight transported. Nationally, the trucking industry is an astounding $610 billion industry (in 2003), representing 86.9% of the nation's freight bill. In addition, trucks transported 81.36% of total manufactured tonnage in sthe state in 2013.
