Our Story

Our story started when a group of industry experts, passionate about trucking, saw the need for a unified support system for businesses. With backgrounds in driver recruiting, safety, marketing, and regulatory affairs, we joined forces to create META – the Midwest Euro Truck Alliance.

META serves as a vital link between trucking businesses and key stakeholders, including industry experts, government officials, and community leaders. Our mission is simple: empower businesses with the resources and connections needed to thrive in today’s competitive landscape.

Through collaboration and advocacy, META is driving positive change within the trucking industry. Join us as we continue to champion the success of trucking businesses everywhere.
