For the 10th year in a row, the American Transport Research Institute (ATRI) has released a survey asking stakeholders in the trucking industry to rank their top industry concerns. ATRI is the trucking industry’s not-for-profit research organization.
“In complex times like this, it is critical that we do our part to help ensure a thriving future for the trucking industry,” said Philip Byrd Sr., chairman of American Trucking Associations, the organization that commissioned the survey.
During ATA’s Management Conference and Exhibition, scheduled for Oct. 4-7 in San Diego, the results of the survey will be released.
In 2013, the ATRI Survey concluded that the top trucking industry concerns were:
- Hours of service
- Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s Compliance, Safety, Accountability program, commonly known as CSA.
- Driver shortage issues
The ATA survey results will be used by the federation to better focus its advocacy role in the trucking industry.
