Rhode Island Trucking Industry
The Rhode Island Trucking Association, Inc. (RITA) is a chartered, non-profit organization whose membership is made up of owner-operators; fleet owners; private and for-hire motor carriers; and allied industries including manufacturers, dealers, service stations and suppliers. Since 1931, RITA has represented and promoted all motor carrier interests on the state level. RITA, the only statewide trucking association, has been a member of the American Trucking Association since 1944.
RITA engages the services of professional lobbyists to represent the interests of its membership on both the local and national stages. With the support of our membership, we fight legislation detrimental to our industry and seek to develop and introduce positive initiatives that serve both trucking/transportation and public interest. Most recently, RITA was instrumental in fighting "independent contractor" legislation as well as a transportation and warehousing tax. As the exclusive Rhode Island affiliate of the ATA, RITA has a strong partner at the federal level, yet charts its own course on matters of local interest that may not align with the national position. The Policies and Operations of RITA are set and governed by a Board of Directors elected annually from and by the membership. The Rhode Island Trucking Association concerns itself with promoting safety on our highways and cooperates with other safety organizations.
