Why Cybersecurity Is
Important to Us

NMFTA represents over 500 carriers who collectively operate over 200,000 power units generating approximately $100 billion in freight revenue.  Our members perform a vital service to our nation's economy by delivering the goods necessary to keep commerce flowing.  Protecting the physical assets that deliver goods throughout our supply chain is essential to all.

Why Are We Vulnerable?

Commercial transportation carriers operate a diverse fleet of vehicles.  These vehicles are designed and built with both OEM factory equipment, as well as aftermarket telematics units.

Using common communication interoperability standard SAE J1939, OEMs can offer vehicles in different configurations using parts such as brakes, transmissions and engines outsourced from 3rd parties, which increases supply chain cybersecurity risks.

Additionally, the extensive impact of transportation disruptions creates particular concern regarding potential outages. These characteristics make the commercial transportation security risk profile substantially different than passenger automobiles.

Are you vulnerable to Cyberattacks?

NMFTA can help you prepare!
