Welcome to TIDA!

The Trucking Industry Defense Association (TIDA) is a nonprofit association with members devoted to sharing knowledge and resources for defense of the trucking industry. Founded in 1993, TIDA has become the organization of choice for over 1,600 motor carriers, trucking insurers, defense attorneys and claims servicing companies.

The organization is committed to reducing the cost of claims and lawsuits against the trucking industry. Members work to develop strategies and share knowledge to defend the trucking industry in personal injury, property damage, workers' compensation and cargo claims. TIDA members advocate on behalf of the industry’s interests.


2021 Advanced Seminar Cancellation Notice


The main priority of TIDA continues to be the health, safety and wellness of our members. In light of the pandemic and the increasing cases throughout the country, TIDA has decided to cancel the 2021 Advanced Seminar, scheduled for January 2021 in Nashville, TN. Cancelling the Advanced Seminar was not an easy decision to make, but the continuation of company travel restrictions and concerns regarding the health of our members dictates this action. 

Thank you for your understanding. We look forward to seeing you at another TIDA event in the future.
