Thank You for Being a Member — We really don’t say it enough, but thank you for being a member of the Minnesota Trucking Association (MTA). You are the reason we exist. Our mission, “to be the voice of a safe and successful Minnesota trucking industry,” is undergirded by the knowledge that we work for real people with real challenges and opportunities. It is not just theory to us, but the true reason our staff and volunteer leaders work so hard every day. Your time, talents and financial support truly do make a difference on behalf of our great industry!

Expect a Phone Call — When we say we value you, we mean it. Our new Membership Committee has set a goal of calling every existing member during the next year. These peer-to-peer calls have two goals. First, to say thank you for your membership and support. Second, to obtain feedback regarding how the MTA can best serve you. Rest assured these are bona fide MTA members just like yourself, not some hired telemarketing firm. They want to hear about your most important issues so we can best focus our resources. The MTA exists to serve the needs of its members, so we want to hear from you. If you receive a call from one of these people, please respond promptly and share your thoughts:

Bob Nuss, Nuss Truck Group
Cheri Cook, Chalich Trucking
Chuck Daggett, Daggett Truck Line
Geoff Baker, McFarland Truck Lines
Gregg Moyer, California Overland
Jack Shawn, Toro Transport Express
Joe Greenstein, Midwest Motor Express
Kevin Otto, Otto Transport
Sean Claton, Midwest Specialize Transportation
Shawn Sullivan, Truck Writers
Steve Lubbert, FedEx
Steve Yaggy Specialized Transportation
Todd Gilbert, Valley Cartage

Who Else Should Be a Member? — Because you are reading this, you are very likely on of our 678 current members. You pay your dues, participate in our programs and help us tell the trucking story to the media and government officials. However, there are many other trucking companies who benefit from our good work who have not joined the Minnesota Trucking Association. You probably know a few them. Can you help us identify who they are? Our Membership Committee will also be making calls to prospective members and your leads will be invaluable. Of course, the most helpful thing you can do is share with these non-members the benefits you experience and directly invite them to join. Send your suggestions to

Thank you for the privilege of serving the greatest industry around!
