Membership Services Overview

Fleet & Cargo Insurance Program

VTBA has joined with Acadia Insurance Company to offer a cargo and fleet insurance program which includes competitive rates, dividends, one-hour claim service and more. Qualified members may also join the NH Motor Transportation Safety Group and potentially earn back dividends.

Legislative Support

You are well-represented in the New Hampshire Legislature. Robert J. Sculley is a registered lobbyist for the VTBA. The success rate of the association’s lobbying efforts has established the VTBA as one of the most effective trade associations on record.

Heavy Truck Driver Apprenticeship Program

VTBA has crafted (with the help of the US DOL) a set of skills (both driving and communication) that allows employers to gauge a driver’s ability to meet/exceed to train the driver to be a valuable asset to the motor carrier.

Forms and Supplies

All the forms and supplies required by State and Federal governments for the transportation industry are available through the VTBA office. We buy our materials in bulk to offer you the lowest prices in the state.

Newsletter and Email Blast

A monthly newsletter and weekly email containing industry updates, regulation changes and information that is pertinent to your business.

Other Member Services are available for additional fees.

Workers’ Compensation

The association has established a self-funded workers’ compensation program. The program allows our members to control their workers’ compensation costs better. If you are on the residual market and are assessed the 10 percent surcharge, you can enter our program at voluntary rates if you qualify.

Education Services

Throughout the year, seminars on safety, forklifts, air brakes, HAZMAT, drug & alcohol testing, and more are scheduled so you can learn firsthand from the experts in these areas.

Drug & Alcohol Testing Program
