Bridge Terminal Transport, the largest intermodal marine drayage company in North America, has joined the American Trucking Associations. The company’s marine drayage operations are conducted through 45 terminals, 30 container yards and a fleet of 2,900 contracted owner-operators. The company services all major port locations and inland rail sites.

“Accelerating sea-to-shore intermodal transportation movements and compelling challenges for all transport modes require the motor carrier industry to work together,” says Philip Connors, BTT president. “Congestion at ports, rail yards and on highways, coupled with the industry’s drive to recruit and retain drivers, are a few examples of why the trucking industry needs to speak with a clear, unified and effective voice. It’s time for the industry, including BTT, to participate in the process through our largest industry organization, ATA.”

ATA President and Chief Executive Officer Bill Graves says Bridge Terminal Transport’s membership was important to the association and acknowledges the company as an industry leader and innovator. “We welcome BTT’s decision to join the ranks of trucking leaders and our Intermodal Motors Carriers Conference as we address the many challenges facing our industry,” Graves says. “We are pleased to have BTT as part of the ATA family.”
