Message from Washington Trucking Associations President Frank Riordan

WTA President, Tom Walrath, Jr.


I am pleased and honored to begin my term as President of the Washington Trucking Associations, knowing that I join the ranks of men and women who have served the industry in this capacity since 1922. The coming decades will continue to challenge the industry with the onslaught of autonomous vehicle technology, emerging options for electric and alternative fueled trucks, and adoption of a myriad of clean fuel technologies as manufacturers continue to innovate. From it's basic, utilitarian function, to its contribution and importance to the economy, I am proud to be a part of the trucking industry and pleased to serve the members of the WTA as their President.

  • Be a Shadow

    • Date: 8/8/2017

    We have so much information available to us these days; education, safety training, trend analysis, insurance recommendations, medical studies, etc. All this information is great at helping us develop the best and most current safety standards and practices, but what it can't do, is tell you what your staff/drivers are going through each and every day on the job.

  • L&I Pays Companies Back for Light Duty!

    • Date: 7/11/2017

    Have you heard that WTA Group Retro members have received over $130,000 in reimbursements from L&I? It's true!

  • L&I's Three Year Lag

    • Date: 6/5/2017

    Now that you've had a claim, you're probably worried that your rates are going to go up next year. Well, because L&I has a three-year lag, new claims do not impact your rates right away.

  • Preferred Workers - Working for You

    • Date: 5/8/2017

    L&I has revamped their preferred worker program. In the past, the current employer wasn't eligible for preferred worker benefits for their injured workers that were permanently restricted from their job of injury. â€‹Essentially, the current employer could offer permanent light duty or the injured worker could obtain preferred worker status and apply for work elsewhere.
