ATRI looking for input on detention time impact

Nov. 4, 2014

The American Transportation Research Institute (ATRI) is collecting data for a new survey on detention time and is looking for carriers wishing to participate.

The Detention Time Impacts on Industry Safety and Productivity survey seeks motor carrier input to evaluate the impact that shippers and receivers may have on the industry’s safety and productivity. 

This latest data collection represents the second phase in ATRI’s research to quantify the impact of detention times on carrier and driver operations. Earlier this year ATRI collected over 600 commercial driver responses to its detention impacts driver survey.  Additionally, ATRI is analyzing empirical safety and performance data through carrier case studies and completing an analysis of its extensive truck position database to model the impact of driver delay on truck travel times at key distribution points around the country.

The online survey is available on ATRI’s homepage at The survey will be open through early January 2015.
