ATRI seeks carrier input for operational costs survey

April 3, 2013

The American Transportation Research Institute (ATRI), the non-profit research arm of the American Trucking Assns., is requesting for-hire carriers to participate in a survey to update the 2012 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 2012 cost per mile and/or cost per hour data.

The results of the survey will be combined with the previous Operational Costs of Trucking reports to yield five full years (2008 – 2012) 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,” ATRI says. The operational cost data that carriers provide will be kept strictly confidential. 

To participate in the survey, visit www.atri-online.org. Results will be available later this year.
