ATA helps small carriers receive greater parity
Sep 1, 2006 12:00 PM
The American Trucking Associations announced a new membership benefit aimed at generating greater purchasing power for small motor carriers.
Known as the ATA Small Carrier Program, motor carrier operators earning $11 million or less in annual revenue and private fleets with 100 or fewer trucks can experience a measure of parity with their larger industry counterparts by taking advantage of discounts and monthly rebates for services and products such as fuel, tires, and equipment.
In the Small Carrier Program, participants receive rebates of up to 3 cents per gallon for fuel purchased at more than 500 truckstops. For a fleet of 10 trucks, these savings equate to $5,400 per year. Small carriers that join ATA under the new program also can receive rebates of up to $1,000 on new and used trucks. Other discounts are offered on tires, parts, mobile communications, technology, insurance, legal services, and office supplies and lodging.
