History and profile
Land Line was established in 1975. The magazine is one-third of the media arm of OOIDA, along with Land Line Now, a one-hour news and information program on XM Satellite Radio, and landlinemag.com, which features trucking news and information updated daily.
The news section of Land Line covers a variety of topics, with particular emphasis placed on federal and state legislation and regulations that affect the trucking industry. However, the magazine also features product announcements and reviews, personality features, advice on operating a business, technical information and “how-tos.”
The magazine and its staff have won numerous awards from the International Automotive Media Awards, Truck Writers of North America and the Society of Professional Journalists/Kansas City Press Club.
