History

NTDA Headquarters

National Trailer Dealers Association

In the summer of 1990, a small group of independent semi-trailer dealers established an organization to strengthen what the founders said was a neglected voice in the trailer industry. Named the National Trailer Dealers Association (NTDA), the NTDA held its first annual meeting in Memphis, TN in the fall of 1990.

The NTDA provides:

  • Valuable member programs and services
  • Education
  • Federal Excise Tax information through a hotline manned by tax specialists

The Association maintains its administrative headquarters in suburban Detroit. Board and staff members make annual visits to meet with Senators and Congressional representatives in Washington, DC.

For more information or to join, contact the NTDA at 1-800-800-4552 (toll-free) or (810) 229-5960 (direct dial), e-mail info@ntda.org, or visit www.ntda.org.

NTDA Membership

Since it’s establishment, the Association has maintained a solid membership. Today, the NTDA represents nearly 1,000 Dealer and Allied member companies that sell, manufacture, lease and repair semi-trailers and trailer parts and accessories throughout North America. Affiliated industry service providers also belong to the Association.

NTDA Annual Convention

The NTDA produces an annual convention and exhibition that features new product introductions, world-class educational programs, networking opportunities, and a Golf Tournament that benefits the NTDA Scholarship Program.
