The American Trucking Associations is looking for a few good men, or rather, more than a few good for-hire and private motor carriers, to participate in its 2014 driver compensation study.
The purpose of the project is to provide accurate information on one of the trucking industry’s largest expenses — driver pay, the lobbying group stated in a news release.
Planned in the study is a compensation analysis presented by driver type at the national and regional levels; examination of performance-based compensation practices and other pay trends, such as how fleets address detention time; and insight into healthcare programs, including costs to the driver and employer.
Participation is needed to ensure an accurate representation of today’s trucking industry. In return for your time completing the survey, you will be eligible to receive:
• An exclusive executive summary, free of charge, prior to the official release of the report;
• A 50 percent discount on the published report ($150 for ATA member participants and $300 for non-member participants); and
• An invitation to a participant-only, free of charge webinar hosted by ATA Chief Economist Bob Costello to discuss the results of the study and answer your questions.
To Participate: download the survey at http://drivercompstudy.trucking.org and return the completed form to Laurel Leitner, Economics Research Assistant, at LLeitner@trucking.org, no later than June 12. Questions and concerns can be addressed by e-mailing Laurel at LLeitner@trucking.org or calling (703) 838-1935.
All data collected will be held in the strictest confidentiality. No individual company’s data will be released; all data will be aggregated by operations type; and no individual carrier will be identifiable. For those wishing to enter into a non-disclosure agreement, see the Driver Compensation Study Web page.
