For over 50 years, the American Transportation Research Institute (ATRI) has been hard at work gathering input, data, and research from across the trucking industry to help inform and educate carriers, drivers, recruiters, and policy makers on what’s actually happening across the industry. Every year, dozens of resources are downloaded from ATRI’s extensive research library.
One of the most-requested annual reports from ATRI is the Operational Costs Data Collection report. This comprehensive collection of data outlines the average operational costs from different areas of the industry – including driver salaries, recruitment technology, and truck fuel – to give industry leaders real insight into the state of trucking today.
Additionally, the Operational Costs Data Collection report is a key resource for many of ATRI’s other research initiatives and serves as a valuable benchmarking tool for fleets of all sizes. The detailed cost information gathered by ATRI also helps identify other hot topics and issues to explore through other reports down the road.
ATRI is currently collecting data and information for their 2020 Operational Costs Data Collection Report, and you can help! Here’s how to submit data to the 2020 ATRI report:
- Click here to download the data collection form.
- You can either open the form as a PDF to then scan and email back when complete or as an interactive PDF that you can fill out directly on your computer.
- Indicate whether or not you will need ATRI to sign a non-disclosure agreement with your fleet if necessary.
And that’s it! Three simple steps are all it takes to add your data and expertise to one of the most comprehensive and downloaded reports in the trucking industry.
With the recent changes and confusion the trucking industry has experienced so far in 2020, this year’s Operational Costs Data Collection Report is sure to offer a unique look at how the industry is poised and ready to bounce back and thrive in years to come. DriverReach is proud to be a partner of ATRI and the work it’s doing to push the issues facing the trucking industry into the conversation.
