The American Transportation Research Institute, the trucking industry’s not-for-profit research organization, today launched the 2018 Top Industry Issues Survey. The annual survey 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 14th year and participation by trucking stakeholders has grown each year.

“ATRI’s research 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 best strategies for addressing each. Completing this survey only takes a few minutes, but its impact can be immeasurable,” said ATA Chairman Dave Manning, president of TCW, Inc., Nashville, Tennessee.

The results of the 2018 survey will be released at the Annual ATA Management Conference and Exhibition, to be held October 27-31 in Austin, Texas.

Industry stakeholders are encouraged to complete the survey available through ATRI’s website at
