NDTA is organized as—and is at its core—an educational organization. It focuses on educating and promoting the sharing of knowledge among its members and the related, broader community. NDTA accomplishes this through its foundation and scholarship program, as well as through a variety of educational events. In-person and online events include speakers, conferences, and classes featuring some of the most influential and brightest minds in defense transportation and logistics.

Education Library

The NDTA library features more than 200 talks by military and industry experts in the fields of passenger travel, government travel, transportation, and logistics.
