Membership Services Overview
Fleet & Cargo Insurance Program
NHMTA 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.
You are well-represented in the New Hampshire Legislature. Robert J. Sculley is a registered lobbyist for the NHMTA. The success rate of the association’s lobbying efforts has established the NHMTA as one of the most effective trade associations on record.
Heavy Truck Driver Apprenticeship Program
NHMTA 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 NHMTA 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.
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.
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
The NHMTA has a comprehensive drug & alcohol random testing program that meets all Federal and State requirements. You must be a member of NHMTA to join the program.
NHMTA will assist with compliance requirements, including Clearinghouse C/TPA services(for members of the NHMTA Drug and Alcohol Program).
Household Goods Tariff
Household goods movers who belong to the association may participate in the tariff that the NHMTA has filed with the Bureau of Common Carriers.
The NHMTA has a fully insured product with Northeast Delta Dental. Members receive a substantial discount on premiums instead of going to Northeast Delta Dental directly. No minimum employee participation is required.
The NHMTA has a fully insured product called DeltaVision. No minimum employee participation is required.
NHMTA was born in the depths of the Great Depression. The trucking industry had proven itself during World War I, and the years following. Trucks were beginning to run between cities rather than only locally for the railroads. The rails were becoming understandably upset with their new competition and began to flex their muscles, especially in the legislature, where they had plenty of friends. Competition between the young trucking companies was also fierce, with rate-cutting rampant.
There were no tariffs, as we know them and no system of classification. The carriers charged what the traffic would bear, usually patterned after – and just under – rail rates. The highway system was woefully inadequate for intercity travel, and in Northern New Hampshire was usually closed to truck traffic in the winter and spring.
To join together to solve some of the problems facing them a few farsighted individuals met one day in 1931 to solve some of the problems facing them. A constitution and by-laws were adopted, which gave the association the following objectives.
- To promote and maintain an organization of all persons and firms who own and operate motor trucks.
- To cooperate in securing rational legislation for the advancement, promotion and protection of the interests of the motor truck industry, to protect owners and users of motor trucks against unjust or unreasonable legislation and to secure the enactment of proper ordinances and regulations governing the use of motor trucks.
- To promote and encourage the construction of good roads and maintenance of the same and to encourage the development of a spirit of cooperation and courtesy among users of the highways.
There were 12 directors elected at that first annual meeting.
- Louis Vogel – Vogel & Hadley, Manchester
- Albert J. Precourt – Manchester Coal and Oil Co., Manchester
- Fred N. Putnam – Nashua Gummed and Coated Paper, Nashua
- Harry Ingham – Law & Ingham Transportation Co., Nashua
- Arthur J. Boutwell – Boutwell Lumber Company, Concord
- Harold L. Barnard – Barnard’s Express, Concord
- Seth E. Rand – S E Rand Transportation Company, Portsmouth
- George E. Dearborn – Dearborn’s Motor Express, Exeter
- Herbert L. Capron, Holbrook Grocery Company, Keene
- Arthur H. Todd – Todd’s Express, Wilton
- Ed Robie – Logger, Ashland
- Richard Shelly – Palmer Simpson Company, Laconia
Interestingly, of the 12 members elected to the Board in 1931, six were private carriers. This may indicate the private carriers had just as much interest as the for-hire carriers – then as now – in the legislature and good highways.
