ATRI seeks for-hire carriers for operational costs data study

May 14, 2014

For-hire carriers are being asked to participate in a survey from the American Transportation Research Institute (ATRI).

ATRI is conducting a data collection initiative to update the 2013 Operational Costs of Trucking report. Through a brief online survey, participants are asked to provide basic cost information such as driver pay, fuel costs, insurance premiums and lease or purchase payments. Carriers are asked to provide full-year 2013 cost per mile and cost per hour data.

The results of this data collection, combined with the previous Operational Costs of Trucking reports, will yield six full years (2008–2013) 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 said.

Participation in the survey is confidential and available online at www.atri-online.org.  The results of this study will be available later this year.
