About NorthAmerican Transportation Association
Your One-Stop Resource
NorthAmerican Transportation Association (NTA) is your one-stop resource for US DOT compliance. NTA maintains a staff of highly trained and experienced professionals from the transportation industry. NTA provides a wide range of business, safety and health products and services to transportation-related organizations, private fleets, motor carriers and independent contractors.
NTA has been "Nationally Accredited for the Administration of Drug and Alcohol Testing Programs" through the Drug and Alcohol Testing Industry Association since 2001. NTA was chosen to offer Official US DOT training courses by the Transportation Safety Institute (TSI).
NorthAmerican Transportation Association is a Transportation Benefits Organization (TBO) established in 1990 primarily as a drug testing consortium in California under the name of Southern California Truck Owners and Independent Operators Consortium and reincorporated in Nevada in 1992. Since then the organization made the Public Utilities Commission and California Highway Patrol's recommended list of approved drug testing programs and it's membership grew over the years to the second largest association with over 5000 members just in California and so did the need for it's services. As a result, in 1991 we added a benefits package which helped provide, maintain and enhance the quality of life for Independent Truck Drivers and their families with information and advice on products, services, health and personal finance that is necessary for them to succeed in the transportation business.
Due to demand, we have added independent salespersons and safety consultants in both Northern & Southern California and have expanded our membership to all 48 states to include all small trucking companies, small private fleets, and all other small transportation-related businesses who use vehicles of all types in their business. We currently have opened independently operated offices in California, Texas, and Pennsylvania to handle our other 6000 plus members and have plans to expand in other key states.
We now take pride in serving thousands of members nationwide from companies in the following diverse industries; religious organizations, construction, intermodal trucking, general trucking, septic tank, taxi, tour buses, fire suppression, recycling, pallet, food, lighting, lumber, distribution, and leasing.
The significant growth of the association can be directly linked to its willingness to listen and respond to its members needs and concerns. Our 6000 plus members have drivers based from Mexico to Washington on the West Coast, through the Midwest states of Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, and Ohio to the East Coast from Vermont down to Florida.
NTA Inc. invites its members to pickup a complimentary copy of the monthly magazine, 10-4 Express, from our web site, filled with information on owning and operating a trucking business, as well as information on developments in the trucking industry.
You'll find that the combined buying power of a association the size of NTA Inc. means substantial group discounts on all services offered such as our low-cost nationwide Substance Abuse Programs, our HMO Health Plan, Our Occupational/Accident Program has the lowest rates around. Most importantly we have a wide range of insurance coverage's that small business or independent drivers simply can't get or afford on their own.
