National Automobile Transporters Association will become the Automobile Carriers Conference of the American Trucking Associations as part of an effort to tackle issues affecting the autohauling segment collectively.

Current NATA President Robert Farrell will serve as executive director of the new conference, which will continue to operate out of ATA’s headquarters in Alexandria, Va.

In recent months, autohaulers have been struggling against economic pressures, including production cuts by the nation’s major auto manufacturers.

Farrell said that under ATA, NATA’s 10 members can address the unique problems facing their sector more efficiently and from a stronger vantage point.
