For-Hire Motor carriers asked to Participate in Operational Costs Survey
ARLINGTON, Va., April 1, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The American Transportation Research Institute (ATRI) today launched a survey to update the 2012 Operational Costs of Trucking report. The brief on-line survey seeks to capture basic cost information from for-hire carriers such as driver pay, fuel costs, insurance premiums and lease or purchase payments. Carriers are asked to provide full year 2012 cost per mile and/or cost per hour data.
The results of this survey, combined with the previous Operational Costs of Trucking reports, will yield five full years (2008 – 2012) of trucking cost information derived directly from fleet operations. This research provides carriers with an important high-level benchmarking tool and government agencies with real world data for future infrastructure improvement analyses.
The operational cost data that for-hire motor carriers provide will be kept strictly confidential. The survey is available online at www.atri-online.org and results will be available later this year.
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.
