As the trucking industry grew, the founding members of MTA realized the difficulty of keeping up with the regulations within the trucking industry. It was then that the MTA became the "eyes and ears" of its members. MTA now provides a wide range of member services, including federally-mandated drug and alcohol testing, licensing and title service, self-funded workers compensation programs, training, and education.
For over 80 years, the South Dakota Trucking Association (SDTA) has been a powerful voice for trucking in South Dakota. The leadership provided from the Board of Directors, association members and staff has enabled this industry to survive many challenges.
