Trucking survey asks: What are the industry’s top concerns?
Arlington, VA — Trucking industry stakeholders are encouraged to help identify the most critical issues facing the industry by participating in an annual survey conducted by the American Transportation Research Institute.
Respondents are asked to rank their top three issues from a selection of 28. The list includes:
- Driver shortage
- Hours of service
- Safe truck parking
- Detention/delay at customer facilities
- The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s Compliance, Safety, Accountability program
Respondents can submit additional concerns not on the list, as well as suggest potential strategies for addressing each issue.
The survey results will be used to help ATRI, the research arm of the American Trucking Associations, develop possible strategies for the concerns.
“The annual Top Industry Issues Survey has long been a crucial part of understanding the issues facing our country’s supply chain,” ATA Chair Harold Sumerford Jr. said in a press release. “ATRI’s research provides a chance for thousands of trucking industry professionals, from drivers to executives, to weigh in on the most important topics that affect trucking and collectively decide on the best strategies for addressing each.”
The deadline to complete the survey is Oct. 7. Survey results are slated to be released Oct. 22 during the 2022 ATA Management Conference and Exhibition in San Diego.
