The American Trucking Associations' Trucking Cares Foundation is part of relief efforts by the trucking industry in the aftermath of Hurricane Ida, which devastated parts of Louisiana and M Mississippi earlier this week.

It is seeking cash donations, relief supplies or donated transportation. ATA is working with the Louisiana Motor Transport Association and Mississippi Trucking Association and will be sending ATA’s trucks loaded with supplies as soon as cleared to do so. ATA said it is also working with the American Logistics Aid Network (ALAN) to coordinate donated transportation.
