Fuel Prices? Parking? Truckers asked to rank their biggest concerns for 2022


The American Transportation Research Institute (ATRI) is asking truck drivers and other members of the trucking industry to share their top areas of concern for 2022.

The ATRI, a top trucking industry research group, has asked for feedback from the trucking community for the group’s annual Top Industry Issues Survey.

The survey ranks trucking industry concerns overall, but also ranks top industry concerns from both drivers and motor carriers.

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

“I encourage my fellow drivers to take a few minutes and complete the Top Industry Issues Survey. 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,” said Steve Fields, an America’s Road Team Captain and professional truck driver for Yellow.

Survey responses will be accepted through October 7, 2022. The survey results will be released on October 22, 2022.
