California Trucking Association Launches Small Fleet Program

The California Trucking Association (CTA), the state’s largest trucking trade association, recently launched a program designed exclusively for small fleet owners. CTA’s Small Fleet Program enhances the ability of small carriers to compete more efficiently by offering a broad range of member resources that companies can employ to strengthen their compliance, advocacy, safety and leadership efforts.

The Small Fleet Program resources are easy to access and use and can boost your staffs expertise and expand access to tools to better pursue business objectives.

The benefits included in the Small Fleet Program are comprehensive and designed to respond to the most pressing concerns of small fleet owners and their staff.

“We know from a recent member survey that the needs of the small fleet owner are unique.  Feedback from this membership base played a significant role in guiding the creation of CTA’s new Small Fleet Program,” said Dana Brooks, Vice President, Membership & Business Development.
