Driver Compensation Study

2022 Driver Compensation Survey Launch (1/6/22)

ATA is recruiting motor carriers of all types and sizes to participate in its latest Driver Compensation Study. Last conducted in 2020, the study will be used to comprehensively evaluate trends in driver compensation. This survey data will be used to produce our 2022 Driver Compensation Study, a one-of-a-kind benchmarking tool that will yield valuable information on driver pay to help carriers differentiate themselves by giving them the tools to make well-informed compensation decisions. Previous studies covered data from over 140,000 employee drivers and nearly 17,000 independent contractors, with data broken down by For-Hire TL carriers, LTL carriers and Private fleets. Survey participants will receive the comprehensive Driver Compensation Study for just $100 ($1,500 for non-participants), a free executive summary prior to the release of the report and an invitation to a participant-only, free of charge webinar hosted by ATA Chief Economist Bob Costello to discuss the results of the study and answer questions. This year’s Driver Compensation Study will be released in the second quarter of 2022.

If you are interested in participating, please download the survey below that best describes your carrier (TL, LTL, Private Carrier), complete the survey, and return it to ATA's economic analyst Lindsay Bur at by Friday, March 11th
