The American Transportation Research Institute (ATRI), the trucking industry’s not-for-profit research organization, is studying the various impacts that truck driver detention has on drivers, motor carriers and supply chains in general.

ATRI’s Research Advisory Committee (RAC) identified this issue as a top industry priority in early 2023.  This survey asks motor carriers and owner-operators to provide input on several different components of driver detention.  Responses will be incorporated into research that identifies solutions for managing and reducing truck driver detention.  A second survey for truck drivers will be launched later this year.

All responses will be kept completely confidential.  The final report will only be presented in an aggregated, non-identifying format.
