For-hire carriers asked to participate in survey

April 21, 2015

The American Transportation Research Institute (ATRI) launched its annual data collection to update the 2014 Operational Costs of Trucking report. The brief online survey seeks to capture basic cost information such as driver pay, fuel costs, insurance premiums and lease or purchase payments from for-hire motor carriers. Carriers are asked to provide full-year 2014 cost per mile and cost per hour data.

The results of this survey, combined with the previous Operational Costs of Trucking reports, will yield seven full years (2008 - 2014) of trucking cost information derived directly from fleet operations, according to ATRI.

“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.

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