The American Transportation Research Institute launched a survey to update the 2012 Operational Costs of Trucking report. 

The brief on-line survey seeks to capture basic cost information from for-hire carriers such as driver pay, fuel costs, insurance premiums and lease or purchase payments. 

Carriers are asked to provide full year 2012 cost per mile and/or cost per hour data.

The results of this survey, combined with the previous Operational Costs of Trucking reports, will yield  five full years (2008 – 2012) of trucking cost information derived directly from fleet operations. 

This research provides carriers with an important high-level benchmarking tool and government agencies with real world data for future infrastructure improvement analyses.

The operational cost data that for-hire motor carriers provide will be kept strictly confidential. The survey is available online at and results will be available later this year.
