"It's not hard to understand why ATRI's Operational Costs of Trucking report is among its most-requested studies - fleets large and small can use ATRI's analysis to identify ways to improve your operating efficiency. We look forward to participating in this year's data collection and encourage others to do so as well."
Mark Droubay, president of Double D Distribution in Salt Lake City, Utah
"We are excited to be able to contribute our knowledge base to this important effort, and even more flattered that we were chosen by our peers as a model freight plan."
- Caroline Mays, Director of the Texas Department of Transportation’s Freight Office
ATRI's Identifying State Freight Plan Best Practices
"As the issue of infrastructure investment comes to the forefront on the national stage, ATRI’s report on truck bottlenecks could not come at a better time. The safe and efficient movement of freight should be a top priority in any infrastructure package, and this report identifies the areas where investment is most needed."
Chris Spear, American Trucking Associations President and CEO
"Maybe the most important and unexpected benefit of a federal fuel tax increase is the hundreds of thousands of new, high-paying construction jobs that will be produced. We often assume that the only reason to raise the fuel tax is to lay more asphalt and concrete. Forgotten in the mix is that tax revenues can simultaneously produce good roads and good jobs."
- Dennis Dellinger, President of Cargo Transporters
ATRI's A Framework for Infrastructure Funding
"ATRI’s annual survey 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."
- Kevin Burch, Jet Express President
ATRI's Critical Issues in the Trucking Industry - 2017 Report

- Bart Middleton, Grammer Industries CEO
"The lack of available truck parking creates a lot of stress for me and my fellow drivers. And, as ATRI’s diary research shows, it’s a number of things – from lack of capacity, concerns over running out of hours, time limitations on parking in public rest areas and customers not letting us park in their facilities – that all combine to make this a perennial issue for us."
- Stephanie Klang, a professional driver for CFI and an America’s Road Team Captain.
"So great to be at the Toledo Trucking Association luncheon yesterday and listening to Ms. Rebecca Brewster of the American Transportation Research Institute. It’s amazing that market research is available to the transportation industry—FOR FREE. Great stuff, folks!"
