“We actively use ATRI’s annual Operational Costs of Trucking as a critical input in our own internal operations review as a benchmark as we strive to be best in class. The robust ATRI data, along with the key insights provided in the analysis, make it a top tier benchmarking tool for fleets of all sizes.”
Mike Stephens, USA Truck Vice President of Finance
"ATRI’s Crash Predictor Model is a key input to our driver hiring and training practices. Safety is our first concern and by understanding how driver histories relate to future crash probability, we can develop targeted solutions for minimizing safety risks.” .
"Perhaps no other issue has as great an impact on this nation's supply chain as traffic congestion. In the face of growing and pervasive congestion, not only does the trucking industry lose billions annually but ultimately the consumer pays the price through higher prices on the shelf. Doing nothing to address the state of our nation's infrastructure will create a significant impediment to the growth of our economy."
“ATRI’s new detention research definitely helps us understand the full financial impact associated with detaining drivers. From a safety and economic perspective, this research gives the trucking industry new insight into how both carriers and drivers should implement driver detention strategies.”
"Congestion is a persistent issue for our industry and our company specifically. For UPS, if all of our vehicles are delayed just five minutes a day, every day, it costs our company $114 million a year. In order to combat congestion, many companies must plan operational redundancies to meet their customer needs. Using data like ATRI’s bottleneck report can help both companies and elected officials to make more informed decisions.”
