Mission and History

NATSA History

From the 1970’s through the 1990’s, Regulatory Service Providers for the transportation industry saw the benefit of forming alliances to share information and better serve their customers. In 1999, efforts were made to combine these alliances under one roof, and the North American Transportation Services Association (NATSA) was born. Through the years, NATSA leadership has guided, prepared and grown its membership to become the trucking industry’s premier regulatory compliance authority.

The NATSA Mission

NATSA offers a platform for Education, Collaboration and Affiliation to all Transportation Professionals who are willing to come together and contribute to the benefit of all members, the industry and government. While members may come from various segments within the transportation industry and may even be competitors, each share the NATSA common core values of Professionalism, Honesty and Integrity. These values are paramount throughout the Association and are demonstrated in each member’s day to day business interactions between employees, customers, fellow NATSA members, industry and government partners. As each member manages these core values within their individual organization, elected Board Members and Officers have the additional obligation of upholding these values in the performance of their duties serving NATSA as an Association.

NATSA Present and Future

Members of NATSA are committed to service with Best in Class operational and ethical standards. We work hand in hand with Carriers, Government, Enforcement, Trucking Associations and other service providers to promote and improve transportation safety and compliance.
