The trucking industry is a vital part of the American economy and crucial to each state’s economic success. Kansas is home to more than 10,000 trucking companies, each of which contribute to the shipping network of the American Midwest. The Kansas Motor Carriers Association (KMCA) is a nonprofit organization chartered by the State of Kansas to provide valuable services, safety training materials, and representation to the people working in Kansas’ trucking industry.
Trucking in Kansas
Small businesses are the backbone of the American economy and the most important part of the Kansas trucking industry. Of the more than 10,000 trucking companies operating in Kansas, 98% operate fewer than 25 trucks. Nearly half, 46%, operate only one truck, and only .4% operate 100 trucks or more. Altogether these companies provide more than 70,000 jobs to Kansas citizens, paying out more than $3 billion in wages with an average trucking industry salary of more than $48,000.
About half of all the communities in Kansas rely solely on trucking for the products they buy and use every day, from produce and food products to furniture and household goods. Kansas trucks represent only 13% of the total miles traveled in the state, but the trucking industry pays more than 40% of all the taxes owed by Kansas motorists. The Kansas trucking industry pays about $350 million in federal and state taxes each year.
The KMCA and the Kansas Trucking Industry
Since 1936, the KMCA has supported the Kansas trucking industry in various ways, intervening and representing Kansas trucking companies facing illogical and invasive regulations, providing safety training courses, and acting as the voice of the Kansas trucking industry before state and federal legislators. Today, the KMCA represents agricultural carriers, aggregate carriers, movers, intermodal carriers, tank truck carriers, household goods carriers, and auto haulers all over the state.
Member companies of the KMCA and their employees can enjoy a wide range of benefits with their memberships, including access to annual conferences, training materials, safety courses, discounts, and 24/7 representation for their interests before political leaders at the local, state, and federal levels.
