ELD is in Top 10 ATRI’s Trucking Issues List; Input on 2017 Required


The ELD mandate was the top industry issue on trucking fleets’ minds last year, according to the American Transportation Research Institute’s annual Top 10 list.

ATRI’s Rebecca Brewster kept running down the rundown at the current In.sight User Conference facilitated by TMW and PeopleNet.

CSA, driver maintenance and the driver deficiency dropped out of the best 5 of the business’ Top 10 issues in 2016, with the ELD command climbing from 6 to 1, as indicated by ATRI’s examination. Substantial Duty Trucking reports that Brewster said it’s the first run through CSA has been positioned outside of the main 5 issues.

As announced by reviews of trucking organizations and drivers, the best 10 issues were the ELD order, hours of administration, the aggregate monetary effect of trucking controls, truck stopping, the economy, CSA, driver lack, driver maintenance, transportation foundation/clog/financing and driver diversion.

For business drivers, the best issues are: ELD order, hours of administration, truck stopping, aggregate effect of truck directions, economy, CSA, driver maintenance, rest apnea rulemaking, FMCSA mission, and driver wellbeing/health.

For bearers, the rundown incorporates driver lack, ELD order, aggregate effect of trucking directions, economy, hours of administration, driver maintenance, CSA, transportation framework/clog/subsidizing, government appropriation of state control of business (F4A) and driver diversion.

In the interim, ATRI propelled the 2017 Top Industry Issues Survey.

“ATRI’s yearly overview gives an opportunity to a huge number of trucking industry experts, from drivers to administrators, to say something regarding the most imperative subjects that influence trucking and all things considered settle on the guide for tending to each. With your investment, we can talk with an aggregate industry voice on what is most imperative to us,” said ATA Chairman Kevin Burch, leader of Jet Express Inc., Dayton, Ohio.

The aftereffects of the 2017 overview will be discharged at the Annual ATA Management Conference and Exhibition, to be held October 21-24 in Orlando.
