ILTA members represent a diverse group of companies that are a critical link in the transportation systems for liquid commodities. ILTA has two membership categories: terminal members and supplier members. All of ILTA’s members, large and small, share the belief that a unified association is in their best interest. As an association, we enable our members to pool their resources to more effectively monitor and help to shape government laws and regulations, and to foster educational, training, and networking opportunities for the entire industry.

ILTA Terminal Members

ILTA terminal members consist of corporations and partnerships that own or operate liquid terminals worldwide. Most of these facilities transfer liquids in bulk quantities from one mode of transportation to another, and they also store the products in aboveground tanks. Some facilities consist of breakout tanks along pipelines, and others handle direct product transfers between trucks and railcars.

Industry Surveys

A safety survey, based on terminal member OSHA injury and illness data, is conducted each year. The companies with the best safety records receive recognition at the ILTA conference. ILTA's annual salary survey is the only one of its kind for the terminal industry. Member companies use the information to see how their compensation and benefits compare to industry averages.

The Environmental, Health, Safety and Security Committee meets two times a year. The Operations Council meets once a quarter. Subcommittees convene regularly via conference call, and working groups are often established to provide in-depth research on a range of topics.
