Carriers asked to participate in operational costs survey

May 14, 2012

The American Transportation Research Institute (ATRI) launched a survey to update the 2011 Operational Costs of Trucking report.  The brief online survey seeks to capture basic cost information from for-hire carriers such as driver pay, fuel costs, insurance premiums and lease or purchase payments.  Carriers are asked to provide full year 2010 and 2011 cost-per-mile and cost-per-hour data.

In combination with the previous Operational Costs of Trucking reports, the results of this survey will yield four full years (2008-2011) of trucking cost information derived directly from fleet operations. This research provides carriers with an important benchmarking tool and government agencies with an accurate dataset for infrastructure improvement analyses. 

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