The Wisconsin economy relies heavily on the trucking industry, which provides one of every 15 jobs in the state. Employing more than 150,000 Wisconsin residents, the Wisconsin trucking industry pays nearly $8 billion in wages each year and contributes nearly $700 million in state and federal taxes. The companies that comprise the Wisconsin trucking industry include large fleet companies, for-hire carriers, private carriers, auto loaders, independent owner-operators, and many more.
The Trucking Industry Drives Wisconsin Business
Small businesses make up the backbone of the Wisconsin trucking industry, and these locally owned and operated businesses support countless other small businesses throughout the state with service contracts and reliable distribution. Nearly 16,000 trucking companies operate out of Wisconsin and transport more than 80% of the manufactured tonnage produced in the state. 77% of Wisconsin communities rely exclusively on the trucking industry to ship and deliver their goods.
Despite the fact that trucks only account for about 10% of all vehicle miles driven in the state, Wisconsin trucking companies pay about 40% of the entire tax obligation owed by Wisconsin motorists. The average commercial truck pays roughly $8,000 in state roadway user fees and taxes and almost $9,000 in federal fees and taxes each year.
Protecting Wisconsin Truckers
The Wisconsin Motor Carriers Association (WMCA) is a nonprofit trade association that provides federal and state-level representation to member companies and their employees. The WMCA also provides a monthly newsletter with industry news, driver coaching programs, safety seminars, group discounts from partnered businesses, and annual events that provide valuable networking opportunities. The WMCA also works closely with federal and state agencies to promote sustainable operating practices and increase roadway safety for all drivers.
Political representation is a major issue for the trucking industry, which has faced serious challenges over the years from unfair tax law changes, illogical regulatory restrictions, and an ongoing shortage of new drivers. The WMCA strives to provide value and consistent representation for the Wisconsin trucking industry before all levels of government.
