Welcome to Nebraska Trucking Association

We are

  • a nonprofit trade association with over 800 members.
  • an advocate for commercial truck and bus businesses since 1940.
  • a forum where industry leaders work together to guide industry policy, legislation and best practices.

We reach out…

to policy-makers, the media and the public. We tell the story of trucking’s importance to the economy. We spread the word about trucking’s constantly improving safety record.

We partner…

on projects with the Nebraska Department of Economic Development, the University of Nebraska and state and local Chambers of Commerce. We help bring businesses into Nebraska—businesses that expand the tax base and need to ship things by truck.

We provide access…

to a network of experts on every aspect of trucking from taxes to insurance to safety compliance and more.

When you hit the road with the Nebraska Trucking Association, you get the knowledge, contacts, services and political representation that help you deliver the good stuff.
