The American Trucking Associations announced that Lafayette, Ind.-based trailer manufacturer Wabash National Corp. has become its newest allied member.
“Given today’s challenging operating environment and proposed regulatory changes, it is important that the industry is well represented by all segments,” says Dick Giromini, Wabash National president and chief executive officer. “Through our membership in the ATA, we are better positioned to provide insight and expertise in support of legislation that benefits our customers and industry.”
“At this time when our industry faces enormous challenges, including expanding government regulation and a sluggish economic recovery, we’re pleased to welcome Wabash National back into our federation,” says Bill Graves, ATA president and CEO. “Just as our carrier members rely on their suppliers every day, we at ATA rely on our allied members to support this industry, and we’re happy we’ll be able to rely on Wabash National going forward.”
