Lobbying group American Trucking Assns. (ATA) has launched awebsite for its American Transportation Research Institute (ATRI) arm. The site details work currently underway on ATRI’s 2002-03 research agenda, including transportation security, safety and human factors, technology and training, economic analysis and environmental factors.
"The ATRI site should be required reading for transportation policy makers at both the federal and state levels," said Roadway Corp. chairman & CEO Michael W. Wickham, who serves as chairman of ATRI. "It is very important for them to have access to the best of sound transportation science and research as they develop the rules and regulations the trucking industry must live by."
