ABOUT US

Promoting and Protecting Florida's Trucking Industry

Florida Trucking Association is one of the oldest and most respected associations in the state—promoting and protecting the trucking industry for almost 90 years. FTA is the sole state liaison between the trucking industry and the legislative, regulatory and judicial branches of state and federal government. 

FTA is one of 50 state trucking associations that is a part of American Trucking Associations. This Federation represents roughly 35,000 member companies and leverages the strength and size of membership in order to develop, advocate, and advance innovative research-based policies that promote highway safety, security, environmental sustainability and profitability.
