What concerns you most about the state of trucking in the U.S. these days? Here's your chance to have your say.

The American Transportation Research Institute, the trucking industry’s not-for-profit research organization, today launched the 2022 Top Industry Issues Survey. The annual survey asks trucking industry stakeholders to rank the top issues of concern for the industry along with potential strategies for addressing each issue.

“I encourage my fellow drivers to take a few minutes and complete the Top Industry Issues Survey," said Steve Fields, an America’s Road Team Captain and professional truck driver for Yellow. "Whether your top issue is truck parking, driver compensation, detention, traffic congestion or something else, it only takes a few minutes to make your voice heard and for us collectively to let the industry know what drivers are most concerned about."

Now in its 18th year, ATRI’s annual analysis not only ranks the issues overall but also provides insights into how critical topics are ranked differently by motor carriers and professional drivers. The report also allows stakeholders to monitor issues over time to better understand which issues are rising, or falling, in criticality.

 “The annual Top Industry Issues Survey has long been a crucial part of understanding the issues facing our country’s supply chain," said ATA Chair Harold Sumerford, Jr., CEO of J & M Tank Lines, Inc. "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."
