Welcome to the Mid-Atlantic Professional Truck Drivers Association's website, homepage for the 2019 Charity FunDrive.
Numerous drivers, safety personnel and members of management from various trucking companies founded our organization in 2001. MAPTDA was formed to promote the professionalism and safety of commercial truck drivers, while improving driving skills, encouraging friendly relations among drivers and promoting good will toward the trucking industry.
Our truck driving competition, which benefits the Make-A-Wish Foundation, involves a course offering (10) skills tests and an optional pre-trip inspection. Drivers from across the country come to compete for prizes and awards.
