The Healthy Trucking Association of America (HTAA) was founded in 1997 as the Independent Contractor Owner Operator Association. 

Since that time,

Shocking new revelations about how prevalent a total lack of good health has become among company drivers and owner operators have motivated our leadership to make the decision to devote our association to helping our nations drivers get healthy and live longer lives. 

With current statistics showing that over the road professionals are one of the non-healthy demographic groups. We have realized that there was an urgent need within the transportation industry for an organization that is dedicated to improving the health and wellness of our professional driver population.

We therefore renamed our association to the Healthy Trucking Association of America to reflect our new goals and directives, and have since established HTAA as the leading authority on driver health and wellness issues.

With the popularity of our health and wellness initiatives, we have initiated a foundation to reach other transportation sectors through the Healthy Transportation Foundation. We would like to encourage you to visit our foundation page at
