The American Trucking Associations is seeking information from carriers about the current state of driver pay in order to update its benchmarking tools regarding driver compensation.
Historically, the ATA Driver Compensation Study has included data from more than 100 fleets and hundreds of thousands of drivers across all sectors of the industry. The broad spectrum of participants allows ATA to break down the compensation data by sector.
“We know that since we last conducted a driver compensation survey in 2019, much has changed in our industry, updating that data with a robust examination of the current environment for driver pay will be a valuable tool for motor carriers and policymakers,” said ATA Chief Economist Bob Costello in a press release.
Carriers participating in the survey will receive the full final report for a discounted rate, a free summary of the results prior to the report’s release and an invitation to a participant-only webinar where Costello will break down the results of the survey.
“The more carriers we have in the survey, the better and more relevant our results will be, so I encourage all fleets to participate,” Costello said. “The data we collect for this survey is entirely confidential and will not be shared with anyone. This is an opportunity for carriers to get a real-time understanding of the current landscape of driver compensation at a time when recruiting and retention of drivers is as important as it has ever been.”
