Call to Action: Express your concerns for industry’s top issues

Tuesday, August 15, 2017

The American Transportation Research Institute, the trucking industry’s not-for-profit research organization, today launched the 2017 Top Industry Issues Survey. The annual survey, commissioned by the American Trucking Associations, asks trucking industry stakeholders to rank the top issues of concern for the industry along with appropriate strategies for addressing each issue. The survey is in its 13th year and participation by trucking stakeholders has grown each year.

“ATRI’s annual survey 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 roadmap for addressing each. With your participation, we can speak with a collective industry voice on what is most important to us,” said ATA Chairman Kevin Burch, president of Jet Express Inc., Dayton, Ohio.

The results of the 2017 survey will be released at the Annual ATA Management Conference and Exhibition, to be held October 21-24 in Orlando.

Industry stakeholders are encouraged to complete the survey available on ATRI’s website here.

ATRI is the trucking industry’s 501(c)(3) not-for-profit research organization.  It is engaged in critical research relating to freight transportation’s essential role in maintaining a safe, secure and efficient transportation system.
