National Private Truck Council (NPTC) is a national trade association in the United States which represents private motor carrier fleets

. These corporate or "private" truck fleets are operated by manufacturers, distributors, processors, and retailers to meet their inbound and outbound transportation needs. The NPTC lobbies governments, promotes safety and runs a convention for its members.[1]

NPTC is located in Arlington, Virginia.[2]

Headquartered in Arlington, Virginia, the National Private Truck Council (NPTC) is the national trade association dedicated exclusively to representing private motor carrier fleets. These corporate or "private" truck fleets are operated by manufacturers, distributors, processors, and retailers to meet their inbound and outbound transportation needs. Such fleets also include food, retail, wholesale, construction and service companies.

Private motor carrier fleets account for approximately 82 percent of the medium and heavy-duty trucks registered in the United States; travel approximately 53 percent of all the U.S. miles traveled for medium and heavy-duty trucks; and consist of slightly more than two million vehicles. Consequently, private fleets comprise the largest segment of the trucking industry.

History of NPTC

The Association was founded in l939 as an independent organization initially named the "National Council of Private Motor Truck Operators" after attempts during the l930s to organize a special private truck conference of the American Trucking Associations (ATA) failed. In l947, the ATA created a competing organization called "The Private Carrier Conference (PCC)" and it became the largest affiliate of the ATA. In l953 the National Council of Private Motor Truck Operators changed its name to the "Private Truck Council of America" (PTCA). For over forty years, the PCC and the PTCA operated separately as competitors representing the private fleet trucking industry in Washington, D.C.

In l987, the PCC disaffiliated with the ATA and renamed itself the "National Private Trucking Association" (NPTA). In 1988, the NPTA and the PTCA voted to merge the two organizations into one. A year later, in l989, as a result of this merger, the National Private Truck Council was chartered in the Commonwealth of Virginia. Since its inception, NPTC has been an independent national trade association unaffiliated with any other organization in the trucking industry.

In l992, NPTC formed the Institute for Truck Transportation Management (ITTM), a non-profit charitable and educational corporation operating as a subsidiary of NPTC. The NPTC Institute provides training and certification services for the private fleet industry and oversees the Certified Transportation Professional (CTP®) program which is the only national certification credential for private fleet managers in the United States.

NPTC represents a broad cross-section of America's Fortune 500 elites such was Wal-Mart, ConAgra, Sysco, Kraft, Linde, General Mills, Nestle, Schwans, Pepsi, Bridgestone, Batesville, Frito-Lay, and hundreds of other manufacturers, distributors, retailers and public service agencies, as well as hundreds of medium to small companies of all kinds with private fleets.

NPTC celebrated its combined 70th Anniversary at the Annual Education Management Conference and Exhibition in Nashville, May 3–5, 2009.

Industry Profile

Private motor carrier fleets are operated by a cross-section of American manufacturers, distributors, processors, and retailers to meet their inbound and outbound transportation needs. Such truck fleets also include food, retail, wholesale, construction and service companies. These companies range in size from family-owned small businesses and town utility fleets to Fortune 500 global conglomerates.

Wal-Mart Stores, ExxonMobil, Bridgestone Firestone, Kraft Foods, Georgia-Pacific, Frito-Lay, Toys "R" Us, Food Lion, Praxair, Sysco and AutoZone are just a few of the thousands of companies operating their own fleet of trucks in support of their principal, non-transportation line of business.

Private fleets account for approximately 82 percent of the medium and heavy-duty trucks registered in the United States; travel approximately 53 percent of all the U.S. miles traveled for medium and heavy-duty trucks; and consist of more than two million vehicles. Consequently, private fleets comprise the largest segment of the trucking industry.

Private trucking hauls an estimated 4.45 billion tons of freight per year with a value of commodities shipped at $2.4 trillion. In total, private carriers transport 56 percent of all truck tonnage. They generate about 308 billion ton-miles of transportation having an overall average length of haul of 51 miles. (Source: Census Bureau, 1993-1997 Commodity Flow Survey)

Major commodities hauled by private fleets include petroleum, stone and concrete, wood and paper, beverages, grain mill products, chemicals, food and dairy products, construction materials, finished goods and many, many more.
