Arlington, VA – The American Transportation Research Institute (ATRI), the trucking industry’s not-for-profit research organization, today launched the 2014 Top Industry Issues Survey. The annual survey, commissioned by the American Trucking Associations (ATA), asks trucking industry stakeholders to rank the top issues of concern for the industry along with appropriate strategies for addressing each issue. The survey is in its 10th year and participation by trucking stakeholders has grown each year.

“In complex times like this it is critical that we do our part to help ensure a thriving future for the trucking industry,” said ATA Chairman Phil Byrd, Sr., President & CEO of Bulldog Hiway Express. “With your participation, we can speak with a collective industry voice on what’s most important to us.” The results of the 2014 survey will be released at the ATA Annual Management Conference and Exhibition, to be held October 4-8, 2014 in San Diego.

Industry stakeholders are encouraged to complete the survey here.
