NTA Women’s Council


Nebraska Trucking Association Women’s Council

We support. We educate. We empower.

Nebraska Trucking Association is breaking new ground.  NTA officially chartered and organized a women’s council to Support, Educate & Empower a young generation of women to consider the transportation as a career.  From over-the-road drivers to diesel technicians to safety managers and dispatchers, the opportunities are great.  In fact, one in every 12 jobs in our Cornhusker state is linked to trucking/transportation.

Trucking Walks Across Nebraska

We’re walking to make a difference! The Nebraska Trucking Association Women’s Council is organizing an event which will make a difference in the lives of those in our trucking industry. We’re walking for a cause.  Any NTA member can participate. Participants will track miles and gather donations for the Nebraska Trucking Cares which helps people in the Nebraska trucking industry in times of crisis.
