1932 - Founding

The Regulated Motor Transportation Association of Minnesota was founded in 1932 by a group of seven truck operators—Roy Steller, R.W. Bondy, Floyd Raymond, William Elsholtz, Edward Murphy Jr., R.J. Braun, and D.J. Ward.


1986 - Merger  

Under the leadership of Max Bax, Floyd Wild, and Wally Peterson, the Regulated Motor Transportation Association of Minnesota merged with the Minnesota Permit Truckers Association to become formally known as the Minnesota Trucking Association.


2015 - Today  

Today the Minnesota Trucking Association serves as a powerful voice for the trucking industry with more than 675 member companies. We continue to promote a positive image of the trucking industry, encourage safe and responsible transport of essential goods, and create an economic and political environment that allows for fair competition.
