The American Transportation Research Institute (ATRI) issued a data call for its Impacts of e-commerce on the Trucking Industry report. The online questionnaire looks to capture how the implementation of e-commerce has changed industry business models and operations.
The results of this data collection will yield quantifiable insight into how the trucking industry has adapted to growing e-commerce activity. This research will provide carriers with an understanding of how the industry has responded to these structural shifts in the relationships between consumers, businesses and logistics.
Motor carriers are encouraged to provide data through ATRI's survey by Friday, April 6, 2018. The survey is available online at TruckingResearch.org. The results of this study will be available later this year.
