The North American Commercial Vehicle Show (NACV Show), a biennial B2B trucking industry event focused on fleet owners and managers has partnered with the American Transportation Research Institute (ATRI), the trucking industry’s not-for-profit research organization, to host an Operational Costs of Trucking session. This one-hour benchmarking session on Oct. 31, 2019 at 8:00 a.m. will be presented by Rebecca Brewster, president and COO of ATRI.
“The benchmarking session will delve into the current cost trends in the trucking industry and what those trends have yielded over the recent five years,” said Brewster. “One of the key cost metrics we’ll discuss is driver wage and benefit costs and how those are impacted by the driver shortage,” added Brewster.
ATRI’s benchmarking session provides an opportunity for NACV Show 2019 attendees to gain valuable insight about the efficiency of their operations relative to their industry peers. Brewster will discuss the latest trends gleaned from ATRI’s annual cost benchmarking report, the Operational Costs of Trucking, which uses financial data provided directly by for-hire trucking fleets nationwide to document and analyze trucking costs on vehicle- and driver-based line items.
Immediately following Brewster’s discussion, the American Trucking Associations (ATA) will host companion follow-up breakout benchmarking sessions. ATA’s sessions are tailored to provide advice for fleets according to their size and type.
