AAOO vs. OOIDA: What Truckers Need to Know!
Share |


AAOO Purpose OOIDA Purpose

AAOO's sole focus is to provide great benefits to help truck drivers make and save more money as well as live healthier on the road.

OOIDA's main focus is to fight for truckers' rights.  They also provide a few benefits to their members.


This page was created to compare the benefits of the two associations and nothing else.  AAOO cares about the truck drivers' rights and does NOT support the ELD mandate.  It is not in our skill set to fight for the rights of truck drivers and that is why we put all our efforts into giving truckers the best benefits possible.  We believe our benefits are far more valuable and effective than OOIDA's benefits.  Please take a look below and see for yourself.

Here is a question surveyed by OOIDA to it's members:


You need to ask yourself, "Why am I an OOIDA member?" or "Why am I thinking about becoming an OOIDA member?"


If you are an OOIDA member or thinking of becoming one because of their benefits provided, you probably are becoming a member for the wrong reason.


If you are an OOIDA member or thinking of becoming one because you want to support OOIDA in their legal action, then you are doing it for the right reason.  BUT you also need AAOO to gain valuable benefits to help you be successful as a driver.
