ATRI SOLICITING TRUCKING INDUSTRY CRASH COST DATA FOR NEW RESEARCH

Mar 6, 2016 | Industry News

 

Arlington, VA – The American Transportation Research Institute (ATRI), the trucking industry’s not-for-profit research organization, today launched a new data collection initiative to create a database of motor carrier crash costs by crash type and severity. This data collection will populate ATRI research designed to enable carriers to make better informed Onboard Safety System (OSS) deployment decisions.

This request for data is targeted toward motor carriers.  ATRI is also working with its insurance industry partners to complete the crash cost database.

Participating motor carriers will be asked to provide information on common crash costs such as:

·    Property Damage

·    Attorney and Court Costs

·    Towing and Recovery Costs

This research was identified as a top priority by ATRI’s Research Advisory Committee and will update a number of Onboard Safety System cost-benefit analyses that ATRI has published over the past decade.
Motor carriers interested in supporting this research initiative can access the data request form on ATRI’s website here.  All submitted data will be treated as confidential information and ATRI will provide a non-disclosure agreement if requested.  The research will aggregate the data and no identifiable characteristics will be reported.
