Mission & Goals
Since World War II, the National Defense Transportation Association (NDTA) has served our country’s national defense and homeland security as a trusted environment where government, military, and private sector professionals can solve pressing challenges in the fields of logistics, transportation, and passenger travel services.
- NDTA is a non-political, non-profit educational organization. Our three priorities are to:
- Maintain that “trusted environment” by facilitating strong working relationships, education, and the exchange of ideas
- Invest in programs and capabilities that provide value to our corporate and individual members, and help develop the next generation of professionals
- Serve the broader national security interest through a new focus on all government stakeholders in logistics, transportation, and passenger travel
We have a rich history, dating back to 1944. In that time, NDTA has established a great track record of service; including real-world disaster relief through partnerships with organizations like American Red Cross, the creation of transportation studies and white papers, the development of emergency management plans, and exercises in cooperation with the military.
