    Truck drivers and the folks they drive for have differing views on the most important issues facing the American trucking industry today, according to the American Transportation Research Institute’s annual Top 10 Trucking Industry Issues survey.

    And, interestingly, the issue that has dominated most of 2020 — the COVID-19 coronavirus — made neither group’s top 10.

    Truckers ranked the top issues as:
    1. Truck parking
    2. Driver compensation
    3. Detention/Delay at customer facilities
    4. Hours of service
    5. Driver training standards
    6. Automated truck standards
    7. Compliance, Safety, Accountability (CSA)
    8. Driver health and wellness
    9. Speed limiters
    10. ELD mandate
    Motor carriers responding to ATRI’s survey ranked the top issues as:
    1. Driver shortage
    2. Driver retention
    3. Compliance, Safety, Accountability (CSA)
    4. Insurance cost/availability
    5. Tort reform
    6. Economy
    7. Transportation infrastructure/ congestion/ funding
    8. Driver distraction
    9. Detention/Delay at customer facilities
    10. Hours of service
    However, when the responses of the 3,122 respondents were combined, the overall top 10 included:
    1. Driver shortage
    2. Driver compensation
    3. Parking
    4. Compliance, Safety, Accountability (CSA)
    5. Insurance cost/availability
    6. Driver retention
    7. Tort reform
    8. Economy
    9. Detention/Delay at customer facilities
    10. Hours of service

    ATRI is an ATA puppet. Their board of directors are the execs from CRST, YRC FedEX Freight, Werner, Prime, UPS, Ruan, Kenan, USA Truck and the President and CEO of the ATA. Take anything they come up with with a grain of salt.
