Why Join The ITA

Celebrating 94 Years as the Voice of Trucking in Illinois.

The united power of our membership is used to support legislation that we believe to be fair and in the best interest of our industry, and to work diligently to defeat legislation that we deem to be detrimental.

Our membership is on the rise and we proudly serve hundreds of motor carriers, including both Illinois and non-domiciled carriers and their suppliers. We cater to carriers of all sizes from owner-operators to large national fleets. We serve all carriers regardless of size or location throughout the state and our members’ loads vary from tanks to livestock to heavy equipment.

Your membership in ITA provides access to the latest in state and national trucking information, plus a growing list of services that can save you money and help you cope with the ever-changing and challenging complications of our industry. ITA strives to be an extension of your own staff; just a phone call away when that problem crops up in which you can’t find a solution. And if we don’t know the answer … we’ll get it!

Our staff keeps you updated on critical industry issues through regular communications, and serves as a primary liaison between the industry and the Illinois Legislature and regulatory agencies and we are the exclusive liaison to the American Trucking Associations. Perhaps most importantly, we provide a forum where members can learn from other members’ triumphs and mistakes. These forums entail:

  • Annual Meeting & Expo

  • Regional Councils

  • Periodic Seminars and Workshops

  • Monthly Safety Council Meetings on topics you staff needs

  • Annual Membership Directory for contacting other members

  • Meetings with top industry leaders, legislators and regulators

If you hire drivers, run trucks, or provide a service to the trucking industry, then ITA is the right choice for you!
