“The STA puts forth a strong unified voice comprised of a broad spectrum of the different carriers operating in Saskatchewan. This is very important when lobbying government agencies with items of concern regarding possible policy changes. These issues would have become delayed or not heard at all if individual carriers had tried to bring such concerns to government. A unified provincial organization will always demand more influence on government agencies.”
Harvey McClelland, Turner Transport
