About Kentucky Motor Transport Association

KMTA is the acronym for the Kentucky Motor Transport Association - the trade association representing the interests of, and acting as the voice for Kentucky's Trucking Industry. KMTA is comprised of over 550 members (growing daily) predominantly motor carriers, but including companies who supply goods and services to the industry. A 55 member Board of Directors and an 18 member Executive Committee lead the association. KMTA is affiliated with the American

Trucking Associations (ATA).

Established in 1962, as a non-profit corporation, KMTA exits to ensure that the public and policy makers have a complete understanding of the trucking industry and the issues that affect them. KMTA also provides cooperative services to members.

KMTA is highly visible in its efforts to encourage legislation and regulations that are fair to the trucking industry, as well as the public. KMTA provides seminars to educate motor carriers on management, safety and regulatory issues. Recently, KMTA received ATA's highest award for its safety initiatives. KMTA actively promotes highway safety through such programs as Kentucky's Road Team, the Kentucky Truck Driving Championships, the KMTA Safety Council, the KMTA

Maintenance Council, and the Kentucky Alliance for Motor Vehicle Safety (KAMVS). KMTA has recently encouraged the passage of legislation to promote safety and remedy the economic conditions that have hurt the industry for many decades.
