Massachusetts trucking companies and their employees provide several invaluable services to the people of Massachusetts and the rest of the United States. More than 10,000 trucking companies currently operate within Massachusetts, and the vast majority of these companies are small businesses that drive their local economies through partnerships with other small businesses. About one of every 25 jobs in Massachusetts falls within the trucking industry, and nearly 90% of all Massachusetts communities rely exclusively on trucking to receive their food and other consumer goods.
Trucking in the Massachusetts Economy
Massachusetts communities not only depend on trucking to receive the goods they need, but local companies also rely on trucks to carry the goods they produce to drive their businesses. In fact, 93% of the total tonnage of goods manufactured in Massachusetts travels by truck, a total of nearly 130,000 tons every day. The trucking industry paid nearly $7 billion in wages in 2017 for an average trucking industry annual salary of more than $53,000.
Trucking also contributes to the total tax obligation facing Massachusetts motorists. Trucks represent only 4% of the vehicle miles driven in Massachusetts, but the trucking industry pays nearly 30% of the total tax obligation of all Massachusetts motorists. In 2016, the Massachusetts trucking industry paid nearly $400 million state and federal taxes, and the industry typically pays much more in taxes than other Massachusetts businesses. As of early 2018, the average tractor-trailer in Massachusetts paid nearly $6,000 in state taxes and highway user fees and almost $9,000 in federal highway fees and taxes.
The Trucking Association of Massachusetts
Massachusetts trucking companies rely on the Trucking Association of Massachusetts (TAM) to represent their interests before state and federal legislators, provide valuable product and service discounts, and coordinate safety courses and recruitment programs. TAM offer Massachusetts trucking companies and their employees representation before all levels of government, aggressive defense in the face of unfair or overly intrusive regulations, access to money-saving programs, and industry networking opportunities to grow their businesses.
