Fleet size directly correlates with whether a carrier has a disaster plan in place to deal with emergencies such as a long-term pandemic, according to a new trucking industry study. The study, released Tuesday by the American Transportation Research Institute (ATRI) and the Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association Foundation (an affiliate of the Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association), found that most owner-operators and trucking firms do not have a formal disaster plan, and of those that do, less than one-third address pandemics. But on a size basis, "fleet size dictates the development of disaster plans," the study notes, pointing out that this is likely related to availability of resources. Presence of a disaster response plan (by number of power units). Source: ATRI "Nearly 80% of owner-operators and small fleets do not have any type of disaster plan in place, whereas 70% of large fleets do.

The 20-question survey is the latest collaboration by two groups not generally known for working together. "We realize people are going crazy out there" trying to get freight delivered, ATRI President Rebecca Brewster told FreightWaves. "We hope to get the bulk of responses in the next week." Survey says … Survey questions range from general queries about fleet size to typical length and type of haul to coronavirus impacts on freight movement — from parking to future disaster planning. ATRI is looking for at least 600 responses from a mix of trucking stakeholders, with at … Full story available on Benzinga.com
A major interchange near the approach to the George Washington Bridge in northern New Jersey is the nation's top trucking bottleneck for the second straight year, according to the American Transportation Research Institute (ATRI). The intersection of I-95 and SR 4 in Fort Lee, New Jersey, tops the latest list of 100 freight bottlenecks that ATRI tracks each year. The intersection of I-285 at I-85 on the northern outskirts of Atlanta was the number two freight congestion spot for the second straight year as well. Top 20 truck bottlenecks (2019 data).

The American Transportation Research Institute's (ATRI) Critical Issues in the Trucking Industry 2018 survey found that 48.7% of respondents said the parking shortage leads them to park on ramps or the side of the highway between three and five times a week. About 40% spend an hour or more looking for a place to park. TruckPark was founded to change this. Now, InMotion Global's AscendTMS transportation management system has incorporated TruckPark's reservation system into its TMS, giving drivers, carriers, dispatchers and even brokers the opportunity to make a parking reservation without leaving the TMS. "The key to making driver parking reservations is saving the spaces well before someone else does. This agreement with TruckPark is a first for any TMS provider in that it allows the dispatcher to make the reservation for the driver while he or she is driving, hours before it even crosses the driver's mind," Bert Goo, executive vice president of partnerships and channel marketing at AscendTMS, explained. "This partnership allows the dispatcher to help their drivers out by seeing all the forward-looking parking spaces available based on the driver's current location, their hours of service available, and their average speed." The option was formally announced on Wednesday.
We start with the premise that a driver can save $10,000 a year by slowing down his or her speed from 75 miles per hour to 65. We then set out to determine whether this would be worth it and to calculate sound, concrete numbers to back up our assumptions. Slowing down speed when rates are low and depressed is a common practice in transportation generally (e.g., ocean tankers) to pad the bottom line and effectively reduce industry capacity. The latest detailed figures we had for operating cost per mile by detailed line item were from the American Transport Research Institute (ATRI) in 2018. We used these figures to calculate how many more miles a driver would need to drive to drop the entire $10,000 in incremental profit to the bottom line. Source: American Transportation Research Institute (ATRI) Converting 2018 Operating Cost Per Mile Into Dollar-Based Expenses What we found was that to actually drop the $10,000 in savings to the bottom line, he or she would need to drive an extra approximately 27,500 miles or 90 miles per day.
