Get to know the NATM with The Trailer Parts Outlet

Let’s get to know a really helpful organization here in the wonderful world of trailers and trailer parts. 

Meet the NATM, the National Association of Trailer Manufacturers. We’re going to look at who they are, what they do, and how their work relates to ours. This guide will help you become a more informed and knowledgeable consumer of trailer parts and trailers, which in turn means you’re a smarter, safer hauler. 

Let’s get started!

What is the NATM?

For more than three decades, the National Association of Trailer Manufacturers (NATM) has dedicated itself to the improvement of safety and performance in trailers. The association represents makers of light and medium duty trailers, as well as suppliers of products and services to the industry. 

Basically, they work to raise awareness about safe trailer hauling, and act as a voice for trailer manufacturers all over the nation. When congress or some other governing body is going to make a rule or regulation on trailers, the NATM is there and participates and communicates in varying ways. There are more than 900 companies and counting being represented by the NATM. 

The NATM works to improve safety through the mandatory Compliance Verification Program, requiring all trailer manufacturers to verify they use the manufacturing processes that build trailers that meet Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS) and industry standards.

We’re a Proud Member of the NATM!

Here at The Trailer Parts Outlet, we are proud members of the NATM. Why? Because it signifies a certain standard of quality. And frankly, we believe our people deserve the absolute best we can provide in terms of parts and customer service. The NATM is aligned with those aims, both when it comes to standards for trailers themselves, and the future of trailer haulers in the legislative system.
