Since 1932, the Minnesota Trucking Association (MTA) has been a powerful voice for the trucking industry. Today we continue to influence policy, support education, and advance the success of Minnesota's trucking industry.
We are committed to developing innovative and research-based policies that promote highway safety, educating policymakers and the public about the essential role that trucking plays in the economy, and promoting responsible policies that advance the trucking industry's environmental goals.
