To enhance the public image and economic growth of our members by promoting safety, innovation, and professionalism.

Who We Are

OTA is a nonprofit, full-service trade association formed to promote and protect the interests of the trucking industry in Ohio. Our membership includes over 800 company members, including both Ohio-based and non-domiciled carriers, and their suppliers. We cater to carriers of all sizes, in fact 54% of our current members operate 15 or fewer vehicles.

Your membership in OTA provides access to the latest in state and national trucking information, plus a growing list of services that can save you money and help you cope with the ever-changing complications of the industry.

The information on this website is just a part of OTA's story. With four professionals on staff in Columbus to help you, OTA has been supporting the industry since 1918, so you know we're here for the long haul.


What We Do?

The OTA strives to be an extension of your own staff; just a phone call away when that problem crops up that you can't find a solution for. And if we don't know the answer ... we'll get it. Our staff keeps you updated on critical industry issues through regular communications, and serves as Ohio's only liaison between the industry and the Ohio Legislature and regulatory agencies.

And perhaps most importantly, we provide a forum where members can learn from other members' triumphs and mistakes. These forums entail:

  • An annual convention.
  • Periodic meetings in your area.
  • Periodic seminars and workshops.
  • Monthly Safety & Maintenance Council meetings on topics your people need.
  • An annual Membership Directory listing all the information you need to contact other members.
