Safety Expenditure Study

American Trucking Associations’ 2015 Safety Expenditure Study

 

 

UPDATE: Short Form Survey Available. Deadline December 31, 2015. Carriers continue to show overwhelming interest in the 2015 Safety Expenditure Study.  To provide fleets ample time to complete the study questionnaire, an abbreviated survey has been created.

 

 

ATA invites all for-hire and private motor carriers—members and non-members—to take part in the 2015 Safety Expenditure Study.  The 2015 study is the first of its kind and addresses the investments made around drug testing, driver safety incentives, training, onboard safety technology, safety personnel compensation, and consulting fees.

 

The goal of this project is to determine how much the trucking industry invests in ensuring the nation's highways are safe. The results will help ATA's safety-related educational and advocacy activities and will lead to the publication of a safety investment tool for carriers to evaluate company expenditures with peer groups.

 

Carriers that complete the full questionnaire will receive:

·      A complimentary copy of the full benchmark guide; and

·      An invitation to an exclusive, participant-only webinar to discuss the results of the study and answer your questions.

Carriers that complete the abridged questionnaire will receive:

·      A complimentary copy of the abridged benchmark guide; and

·      An invitation to an exclusive, participant-only webinar to discuss the results of the study and answer your questions.

Your company’s involvement is vital in developing an accurate representation of today’s trucking industry!
