The American Transportation Research Instituteis asking motor carriers to provide inpu on how the new hours of service regulations that went into effect July 1 are affecting them.
This is the second of two data collection efforts to measure impacts from the recent changes to the rules. Earlier this month, ATRI launched a similar data collection initiative for commercial drivers to weigh in on how the rules have impacted how they operate. In this latest survey, motor carriers are asked to provide input on the changes.
"The response to the driver survey has been tremendous thus far and we likewise expect a lot of interest from motor carriers in documenting how they have changed their operations to fit the new rules," said ATRI President Rebecca Brewster.
