ATA Launches Latest Driver Compensation Study Survey

Jan 11, 2024

Washington – Today, the American Trucking Associations opened its survey for the 2024 ATA Driver Compensation Study.

“The Driver Compensation Study is an invaluable and one-of-a-kind benchmarking tool,” said ATA Chief Economist Bob Costello. “In order to get as accurate a picture of industry trends as possible, we rely on input from a large cross-section of motor carriers to provide detailed information about the many pay structures, benefits packages, incentives and bonuses provided to the industry’s most valuable resource: professional drivers.”

Previous versions of the Driver Compensation Study have been based on surveys of more than 180 fleets representing over 135,000 employee drivers and nearly 20,000 independent contractors. That data is then broken down by industry segment to supply a clear view of how – and how much – trucking companies pay their drivers.

Participants in the survey are eligible for a 93% discounted copy of the 2024 ATA Driver Compensation Study and other benefits. To participate and review the benefits that come with participating, please visit Participants should complete and return the survey to by March 29.
