Welcome to ITMA
Your Houston based membership organization focused on creating networking opportunities and educating the transportation industry.
Based in Houston, Texas, and chartered by the State of Texas, the International Transportation Management Association (“ITMA”) is a member-driven organization for companies and people involved in or interested in international transportation logistics. This organization began in the mid-1970s as a small group of traffic managers, but has evolved into an association that serves all aspects of transportation/logistics.
In addition to providing educational content to members, the founders of ITMA had a vision to start a scholarship fund, and became incorporated with that goal in mind. The very first scholarship presentation consisted of two $100 scholarships that were awarded to deserving students attending Houston Community College.
In the early 2000’s ITMA was involved in the historic passing of HB816; a bill to establish National Transportation Week permanently in Texas, thanks to the efforts of Ann Wilson and Mary Ann Chambers. Although ITMA has grown significantly since those early days, we remain dedicated to the vision and mission of our founders.
