Arlington, VA – The American Transportation Research Institute (ATRI) today launched a survey to identify CSA impacts on trucking operations, as well as carrier perceptions and attitudes toward FMCSA’s new regulatory program. This survey, targeted to motor carriers, follows ATRI’s successful survey initiative at this year’s Mid-America Trucking Show, which assessed CSA impacts on nearly 5,000 commercial drivers.
The brief on-line survey asks carriers for information on how operations have changed or been affected since the full deployment of CSA in December of last year. The survey also seeks to capture attitudes toward the program and general understanding of its key components.
Motor carriers are encouraged to provide confidential input on CSA through ATRI’s survey, available online at www.atri-online.org. The results of the carrier and driver surveys 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.
