Message from ATA Chairman Kevin Burch

Each and every day, trucking moves America forward, delivering more than 70% of the nation’s freight.  But the trucking industry’s support of our local communities goes beyond the goods we deliver.  The trucking industry gives, and gives big, to charitable organizations across the country.  ATA commissioned the American Transportation Research Institute (ATRI) earlier this year to survey the industry to quantify how much trucking gives to charity each year, and to identify what types of charities the industry supports, so that we can better tell the story of how we move America forward.  It would be great to follow up that not only do we invest $9.5 billion in safety – but trucking also contributes X amount of $ to our local communities.

If you haven’t already done so, please take a few minutes to complete the confidential survey below to add your charitable giving to the trucking industry’s total for 2016.  Help us tell OUR story!

You have heard me say so many times, don’t tell your story once in a while or once a week, tell your story every day!  The visit to the White House by the America’s Road Team Captains and members of our Infrastructure Funding Task Force in fact did tell the story of trucking. Please visit ATA’s website to view media coverage of the visits as well as photos from the day.

Thank you in advance for taking a few minutes and filling out the confidential charitable giving survey.
