About North Carolina
The trucking industry is one of the most important parts of the national distribution network, responsible for delivering goods and materials to communities all over the country every day. In North Carolina, the trucking industry plays a pivotal role in the state’s economy and within the greater distribution network of the East Coast.
Trucking and the North Carolina Economy
More than 200,000 jobs in North Carolina stem from the trucking industry, which accounts for about one of every 16 jobs in the state. Almost 90% of North Carolina communities rely exclusively on trucking for moving their goods, and more than 21,000 trucking companies operate within the state every day. These companies range in size from local carriers with only a few vehicles to larger fleets delivering goods all across the country, and trucks move 86% of North Carolina’s manufactured tonnage. This amounts to about 25,000 tons each day.
Trucking also contributes a great deal to the state’s overall tax obligation for motorists, paying 32% of the total motorist tax obligation despite the fact that trucks only comprise about 7% of all vehicle miles driven in North Carolina each year. The North Carolina trucking industry also contributes over one billion dollars in state and federal taxes each year and pays a much higher amount of state and federal user fees and taxes than most other businesses in the state.
The North Carolina Trucking Association
One of the major problems facing the trucking industry throughout the years has been representation, and the North Carolina Trucking Association exists to provide a voice to member companies and their employees at all levels of government. The North Carolina Trucking Association routinely supports the interests of member companies by lobbying for more logical and fair legislation, protesting unfair or overly intrusive government regulations, and providing valuable training programs and annual events that enrich members’ lives in various ways.
Since 1929, the North Carolina Trucking Association has promoted and protected the interests of the North Carolina trucking industry through education, training, advocacy, and dissemination of vital trucking industry news and information. This member-driven organization also continues to support safety initiatives and infrastructure improvement efforts.
