NATSO has been representing travel plaza and truckstop owners and operators for over 50 years and pursues a clear mission: to advance the success of truckstop and travel plaza members by delivering solutions to members’ challenges and achieving the public policy goals of the truckstop and travel plaza industry.

Headquartered just outside Washington, D.C., NATSO is the only national trade association representing the travel plaza and truckstop industry. It represents more than 2,000 travel plazas and truckstops nationwide, owned by over 220 corporate entities. (Before legally changing its name to NATSO, the association was called the National Association of Truck Stop Operators.)

NATSO advances the industry’s interests by influencing government action and public opinion on highway issues such as commercialization, tolling and truck parking and represents the industry on environmental and energy issues, primarily diesel fuel.

NATSO also provides access to knowledge resources to help members make good business decisions. From in-person and distance learning opportunities to its annual convention, NATSO delivers the latest content to members on trends and news affecting the industry.

For more than 50 years, NATSO has been focused on one thing: advancing the success of truckstop and travel operators and vendors, just like you.
