For-Hire Motor Carriers Asked to Participate in Operational Costs Survey

Apr 16, 2015 | Industry News

Arlington, VA – The American Transportation Research Institute (ATRI) today launched its annual data collection to update the 2014 Operational Costs of Trucking report.  The brief on-line survey seeks to capture basic cost information from for-hire motor carriers such as driver pay, fuel costs, insurance premiums and lease or purchase payments.  Carriers are asked to provide full-year 2014 cost per mile and cost per hour data.

The results of this survey, combined with the previous Operational Costs of Trucking reports, will yield seven full years (2008 – 2014) of trucking cost information derived directly from fleet operations.  This research provides carriers with an important high-level benchmarking tool and government agencies with real world data for future infrastructure improvement analyses.

For-hire motor carriers are encouraged to provide confidential operational cost data through ATRI’s survey, available online at www.atri-online.org.  The results of this study will be available later this year.

ATRI is the trucking industry’s 501(c)(3) not-for-profit research organization.  It is engaged in critical research relating to freight transportation’s essential role in maintaining a safe, secure and efficient transportation system.
