ATRI launches 2023 Top Industry Issues Survey

Aug. 28, 2023
The American Transportation Research Institute has launched its annual survey to determine the top pain points of both management and drivers.

The American Transportation Research Institute has launched its 2023 Top Industry Issues Survey. The annual survey asks trucking industry stakeholders to rank the top issues of concern for the industry and potential strategies for addressing each issue, the organization announced in a press release.

The survey will remain open through Sept. 29. The results of the 2023 survey will be released Oct. 14 during American Trucking Associations' Management Conference & Exhibition to be held in Austin, Texas.

Now in its 19th year, ATRI's annual analysis not only ranks the issues overall but also provides insights into how topics are ranked differently by motor carriers and professional drivers. The report also allows stakeholders to monitor issues over time to understand better which issues are rising or falling in criticality.

"The annual Top Industry Issues Survey has long been a crucial part of understanding the challenges facing our country's supply chain. ATRI's research provides an opportunity for thousands of trucking industry professionals, from drivers to executives, to weigh in on the most important topics that affect trucking and collectively decide on the best strategies for addressing each," stated ATA Chair Dan Van Alstine, Ruan Transportation Management Systems president and chief operations officer.

Ken Duncan, an America's Road Team captain and truck driver for Walmart Transportation (No. 8 on the FleetOwner 500 private fleets), stated, "I encourage my fellow drivers to take a few minutes and complete ATRI's Top Industry Issues Survey. Whether your top issue is truck parking, driver compensation, detention, traffic congestion or something else, it only takes a few minutes to make your voice heard and for us collectively to let the industry know what drivers are most concerned about."
