The National Minority Trucking Association is committed to assisting all minorities with establishing, maintaining, and growing successful careers and businesses in the trucking and logistics industry. In today’s trucking industry, there seem to be limited resources available to minorities for business consultation, accessing lucrative contracts, and trucker advocacy. Oftentimes, owners of minority trucking companies as well as minority owner operators and company drivers have many years of industry experience, but may lack the resources necessary to either start or solidify and grow their businesses. Since the deregulation of the trucking industry just a few decades ago, the industry has made great strides in enabling aspiring entrepreneurs to have a fair opportunity at building their businesses in the trucking industry. However, without the proper resources and support, minorities will continue to be at a disadvantage in an industry that is brimming with growth and demand for good truckers.
The National Minority Trucking Association is dedicated to providing important resources to our members, which include: career opportunities, contracts, consulting, industry education and access to key industry contacts. NMTA acts as a primary resource center and advocate for minorities in the trucking and transportation industry through our partnerships, affiliations, services, and member benefits. NMTA fosters employment opportunities through our various partners within the transportation industry to promote fair and equal opportunity for those minorities who qualify and are seeking employment in the trucking and transportation industry.
