Each year, the American Transportation Research Institute releases its Operational Costs of Trucking report. ATRI is currently collecting data for the next report and needs truckers to submit their information.
ATRI is seeking data from for-hire fleets in the areas of driver pay, fuel costs, insurance premiums and lease/purchase payments. Carriers should submit cost per mile and/or cost per hour data for the full year of 2017.
Once all data has been collected and analyzed, ATRI will release the results, which will include 10 years of trucking cost data, 2008-17. The real-world data may be beneficial to carriers and government agencies for investment decisions, according to ATRI’s news release.
All data should be submitted by Friday, June 22. Forms are available at TruckingResearch.org. Information provided will be kept confidential. Participants will receive an advanced copy of the results before they are released to the public.
