MEET OUR CHAIRMAN

Chairman’s Message

The trucking industry has gone to heroic lengths to keep the economy moving and consumers supplied with the goods they need. While we are working at unprecedented high volumes, we are doing nothing different than what the industry does every day, showing up and bringing the goods. In Washington, 80% of communities rely solely on trucks to deliver their goods. Trucks are responsible for moving roughly 70% of freight on our highways. Trucking is proud to be a safe and service-oriented industry, serving our customers, our communities, and the nation’s supply chain.
