NDTA Annual Fall Meeting 2022

NDTA Annual Fall Meeting 2022

‘I was thrilled to be invited to represent ProCharter at the NDTA / USTRANSCOM Fall Meeting. A very insightful week, learning about the recently published National Defense Strategy and the value of Defense & Commercial integration/collaboration. I also had the privilege of meeting and networking with some incredible people, and I look forward to leading ProCharter with exploring opportunities to support the NDTA community.

ProCharter was delighted to attend the 2022 National Defense Transportation Association (NDTA) & US Transport Command (USTRANSCOM) annual ‘Fall Meeting’, in St Louis, Missouri.
This year saw a record attendance of more than 1700 members and was a great opportunity to hear some excellent Defense and Industry keynote speakers and, to engage with fellow industry specialists.
Gaining a deeper understanding of the new US National Defense Strategy and the aspiration to build on further collaboration with industry, gives us at ProCharter an insight on how we can evolve & adapt, in order to provide services to support the strategy.

Based in the USA, National Defense and Transportation Association (NDTA) serves as a trusted environment where Government, Military and Private Contractors can get together and solve pressing challenges in the fields of logistics, transportation and passenger services.

ProCharter has a proven history in providing solutions to Military Aviation and Logistics challenges, often in remote and challenging locations.

Defense Transportation & Logistics…
Evolving the Strategic Advantage

The Fall Meeting is a four-day, NDTA-USTRANSCOM co-sponsored, annual event providing government and industry the opportunity to identify and solve logistics and transportation issues together; learn about new technologies, develop best practices, and build professional and personal relationships.

This year’s theme, “Defense Transportation & Logistics…Evolving the Strategic Advantage” considers our highly contested and competitive environment and addresses the challenges existing to our logistics and transportation systems with intent and desire to outperform our peers in all domains and geographic locations.

Attendees bring a wide range of U.S. Government, industry, and academic experts together with the goal of improving national logistics and transportation systems to achieve a more resilient and reliable Defense Industrial Base.


Mission & Goals

Since World War II, the National Defense Transportation Association (NDTA) has served our country’s national defense and homeland security as a trusted environment where government, military, and private sector professionals can solve pressing challenges in the fields of logistics, transportation, and passenger travel services.

NDTA is a non-political, non-profit educational organization. Our three priorities are to:

  • Maintain that “trusted environment” by facilitating strong working relationships, education, and the exchange of ideas
  • Invest in programs and capabilities that provide value to our corporate and individual members, and help develop the next generation of professionals
  • Serve the broader national security interest through a new focus on all government stakeholders in logistics, transportation, and passenger travel

We have a rich history, dating back to 1944. In that time, NDTA has established a great track record of service; including real-world disaster relief through partnerships with organizations like American Red Cross, the creation of transportation studies and white papers, the development of emergency management plans, and exercises in cooperation with the military.
