For as long as there’s been an industry moving goods, people have come together in association to find common ground. For Toronto’s trucking industry, that organization is the Toronto Trucking Association.
While trucking and transport haulers had come together as early as the 1950’s, it was only in 1963 that a small group of cartage company owners joined together to form the Industrial Cartage Association. The organization was focused on advocacy on issues like licensing, controls on market entry and industry price stability.
In 1975, the Industrial Cartage Association changed its name to the Toronto Trucking Association to be more reflective of its diversity of members, and to incorporate as a non-profit entity.
Since then, we’ve expanded our scope of operations well beyond advocacy and legislative monitoring to include networking, education, and skills development.
