Our Vision

Tidewater Motor Truck Association will take a leadership role to promote safe, efficient and responsible truck commerce in Virginia, becoming recognized and respected among other contributing participants in the region’s supply chain.

What We Do

We provide

an environment which will foster the efficient and economical operation of commercial motor vehicles. This achievement will be through the cooperation between the drivers, both independent and company and the truck company owners. Progress will be made through constructive relations and discussion of value to all parties.

We inform

and educate our customers to the value of the trucking industry and the challenges encountered to providing quality service to those customers. Collectively we will improve those conditions, which restrict avenues for superior service to exist and improve.

We improve

communication and relations to others in the supply chain of Virginia and beyond. The Association will engage any identified party who may lend assistance to create a more healthy truck supply chain.

We strive

for greater safety and awareness on the part of the owner operators and the company drivers through continued education in meetings, supply of safety literature and clear communication provided by our truck dispatchers and managers.

We work

hand in hand with law enforcement, governmental entities, legislators and others to improve our mutual understanding of safety, security, compliance and the betterment of the public good.

We assist

in establishing a united position on issues, which affect the welfare and general good of our industry and the Association.
