The American Transportation Research Institute (ATRI) is the trucking industry’s not-for-profit research organization. ATRI’s primary mission is research to advance the trucking industry’s safety and productivity. The research that ATRI undertakes on behalf of the trucking industry is identified as an industry priority by ATRI’s Research Advisory Committee (RAC).
RAC members represent a diverse group of motor carriers of all sectors and sizes, professional truck drivers, industry suppliers, academics, law enforcement, and government representatives. RAC members are appointed to two-year terms by the ATRI Board of Directors.
ATRI’s RAC holds one in-person, two-day meeting per year, typically in the second or third week of March. The RAC also meets virtually several times a year to provide input on research studies and review progress on the selected priority topics. Participation in the in-person meeting is a requirement of membership as a virtual option for the annual meeting is not available.
