May 01, 2013, 07:00 ET from American Trucking Associations

ARLINGTON, Va., May 1, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Today, American Trucking Associations rolled out an entire redesigned and updated website as part of its ongoing effort to bolster its communications and image efforts.


"The new cements ATA's position as a leader in spreading the trucking industry's message of essentiality, safety and sustainability," said ATA President and CEO Bill Graves. "A lot of work has gone into this overhaul and ATA's members and staff can be proud of this cutting edge communications tool."

The overhaul is the result of more than a year of work with Manassas, Va.-based designers Saforian to reimagine and reorganize the wealth of information ATA has to share into a more readily accessed package.

"Saforian had the privilege of working hand-in-hand with ATA on re-crafting the web site. We were met with enthusiasm and respect that continued throughout the entire project," said Todd Rice, founding partner of Saforian. "We gained valuable insight in how ATA operated and defined metrics that mattered most to ATA's members. The outcome was a compelling and well organized site. We look forward to a long term relationship with the organization."

"One of the things I wanted to do as chairman is start ATA on the path to being a more effective communicator of the importance of trucking, and this new website is a tremendous start," said ATA Chairman Mike Card, president of Combined Transport, Central Point, Ore. "With this new website, ATA has a wonderful new platform to spread our message of safety, essentiality and sustainability."

American Trucking Associations is the largest national trade association for the trucking industry. Through a federation of 50 affiliated state trucking associations and industry-related conferences and councils, ATA is the voice of the industry America depends on most to move our nation's freight. Follow ATA on Twitter or on Facebook. Good stuff. Trucks Bring It!
