About West Virginia
The trucking industry is one of the most important parts of the West Virginia economy, responsible for about one of every 16 jobs in the state. Truck drivers make an average annual salary of $38,000 in West Virginia, and annual wages are roughly $1.5 billion. Many West Virginia communities rely heavily on the trucking industry to move their goods, 84% of which rely exclusively on trucks to receive the items they use every day and ship the goods they produce.
With such an important place within the state economy, the West Virginia trucking industry relies heavily on political representation as a united voice. The West Virginia Trucking Association (WVTA) provides this representation, promoting the interests of member companies and their employees at the local, state, and federal levels of government. Members also have access to safety training, coaching programs, recruitment materials, and many other benefits.
Economic Impact of Trucking in West Virginia
The trucking industry in West Virginia pays about $240 million in federal and state roadway user fees and taxes. In fact, the trucking industry as a whole pays more in taxes than most other businesses. The average five-axle tractor-trailer pays about $8,000 per year in state user fees and taxes, and the industry as a whole pays 38% of the entire tax obligation of all West Virginia motorists despite trucks only comprising about 12% of all vehicle miles driven in the state.
The WVTA not only helps to preserve the enormous economic contributions the West Virginia trucking industry provides to the state and the rest of the country, but also improve roadway safety for all drivers. The WVTA works closely with the West Virginia State Police, the US Department of Transportation, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, and many other agencies to promote highway safety and reduce fatal accident rates. Since 1973, the efforts of the WVTA and other trucking associations throughout the country have led to a 73% reduction in the number of fatal truck accidents nationwide.
