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.


March 2020 - COVID-19 Update


TIDA, like the general public, is concerned about the growing spread of the coronavirus internationally and the impact it will have in the U.S.

TIDA continues to monitor the rapidly changing situation related to the spread of COVID-19. We understand that concerns for health, safety, and travel for meetings, among other issues, are affecting our members.

At TIDA events, we commit to maintaining all appropriate sanitary, health, and safety measures and encourage attendees to follow guidelines recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization.

At this time, TIDA has cancelled the 2020 Cargo & Skills Course Seminars scheduled for April 1-3, 2020 in Tempe, AZ.

To further assist in this trying time, TIDA has curated a list of COVID-19 resources in order to provide our members with information on how to plan, prevent, and handle situations that may arise with employees and clients. Click here to view the TIDA COVID-19 Resource Page.

If there are any changes to TIDA events, we will provide information via e-mail to registrants with specific details. Contact [email protected] for additional information.
