ATRI asks members of trucking industry to rank top concerns
The American Transportation Research Institute needs inputs from people at all levels of trucking to provide input about the most critical issues facing the industry.

ARLINGTON, Va. — The American Transportation Research Institute (ATRI) is seeking input from drivers, motor carriers, equipment/tech suppliers, fuel suppliers, driver trainers, law enforcement and many others involved in the trucking industry.

ATRI’s annual Top Industry Issues Survey asks trucking industry stakeholders to rank the top issues of concern for the industry, along with potential ways to address each issue.

In addition to ranking the trucking industry’s overall issues, the survey provides details about critical topics that are ranked differently by motor carriers and drivers. The report also allows stakeholders to monitor issues over time to better understand which issues are rising, or falling, in criticality.

“Completing this survey only takes a few minutes, but its impact can be immeasurable. The data ATRI provides will chart the course for the industry by providing a clear picture of the landscape we face,” said Sherri Garner Brumbaugh, chair of the American Trucking Associations (ATA) and president and CEO of Garner Transportation Group.

The results of the 2021 survey will be released Oct. 24 as part of ATA’s Management Conference & Exhibition to be held in Nashville, Tennessee.

I’m upset !!! My husband is a truck driver in December of 2020 while making deliverys from State to state city to city he got covid an was very sick home in Bedford month on oxygen. Only got 2 week sick pay an used his vacation time. To live barley made it with bills Christmas was worst in our 23 years together.yea we got the 600 an 1200 like everyone else but all thisoney going out to teachers hospital worker’s ect. Truck drivers that helps this country going. Is getting nothing!!! I get so upset when I read about where some of this stimulus money going to. They need live the fear for there health an safety in a truckers day an life .

You have brought up a very good point , most truckers were considered essential and the hos were changed to accommodate the need of the communities and the country. This begs the question why are we left in the cold by our government when things get hard on us. It seems we fall into the category of our U.S. vets.
