Survey seeks trucker input on challenges faced by female truck drivers


The American Transportation Research Institute (ATRI) is asking for truck driver input on the workplace challenges faced by female truck drivers.

The ATRI launched a new survey on January 3 asking both men and women from the trucking community to share their views on problems faced by women truck drivers, seeking to better understand the challenges that truck drivers encounter while training, on the road, and at parking facilities.

The survey specifically asks truckers to share their thoughts and experiences:

  • when considering a career as a truck driver
  • while obtaining their CDL
  • regarding challenges encountered as a truck driver
  • for those who no longer drive a truck, why they left the industry

“Once again ATRI is providing truck drivers the opportunity to provide input on critical research that will ultimately make our workplace better. I strongly encourage my fellow drivers to take a few minutes to complete ATRI’s survey and make our collective voice heard,” said Rhonda Hartman, a truck driver for Old Dominion Freight Line and an America’s Road Team Captain.

The survey is open through February 4, 2024. You can click here to complete the survey online.
