WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today it was announced that the American Trucking Associations has donated $100,000 to the Trucking Moves America Forward (TMAF) initiative.

“One of our most important jobs is to tell the trucking industry’s story,” said ATA president and CEO Bill Graves. “There’s so much to know about the safety, the essentiality and the sustainability efforts of this industry and Trucking Moves America Forward has been designed to do just that.We have come a long way in almost two years of planning and preparation, and now ATA is proud to announce we’re taking our support to a higher level today announcing a contribution of $100,000 to Trucking Moves America Forward.”
With ATA’s donation, TMAF sits at $700,000 towards its goal to raise $1 million by the end of 2014.
