ATRI seeks Truck Driver Input on North Carolina Parking Issues 

The American Transportation Research Institute (ATRI) today released a survey targeted to truck drivers that will identify and analyze truck parking issues in North Carolina.  The brief online survey seeks important information from drivers on where, why, and when they park at locations throughout North Carolina.  It also seeks information on how truck parking can be improved at both private truck stops and public rest areas.

The survey effort is sponsored by the North Carolina Department of Transportation, and the information will become an important input to freight planning throughout the state.

Commercial drivers who operate in the southeastern U.S. are encouraged to provide their truck parking insights and information through ATRI's survey by Friday, November 18, 2016. The survey is available online at www.atri-online.org.  

ALL INDIVIDUAL SURVEY RESPONSES WILL BE KEPT CONFIDENTIAL.  The results of this study will be available later this year.

The Trucking Operations Management Subject Area will be available under the Supply Chain Management curriculum program, currently Global Logistics and Distribution Management Technology, effective Fall 2016.

As of April 2014, there were over 16,010 trucking companies located in North Carolina, most of them small, locally owned businesses.  In 2013, the trucking industry in North Carolina provided 193,550 jobs, or 1 out of 17 in the state.

The Trucking Operations Management (TOM) degree introduces students to all facets of a trucking company’s operations.  The purpose is to create a 1-year certificate and a 2-year associates degree programs with a focus on basic trucking management principles introducing students to all aspects of the trucking industry, preparing the graduate for a seamless transition into the workforce.
