Antitrust Policy

    In consideration of the laws governing the competitive and collaborative actions of our industry, the PTA has the following antitrust policy to guide our directors, officers, and members.

    The following statement, which shall be reviewed at least every three years, is the Antitrust Policy of the Pacific Transportation Association, adopted 17 December 2015:

    “As participants, members, directors, and officers in this Association we need to be cognizant of the constraints of antitrust laws. There shall be no discussions of agreements, tactics, or concerted actions that may restrain competition or promote unfair business practices.

    This prohibition includes the exchange of information concerning individual prices, rates, contracts, coverage, market practices, market allocation, customer quotes, claims settlement practices, or any other competitive aspect of an individual company’s operation.

    Each participant is obligated to be vigilant and speak up immediately for the purpose of preventing any discussion falling outside these boundaries.”

    Further, the PTA Board encourages each PTA member to regularly review the antitrust, anti-collusion, and compliance policies of his or her company or organization.
