New CSA Research Evaluates Industry Operational Impacts

ARLINGTON, Va., Dec. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The American Transportation Research Institute (ATRI) today released an analysis evaluating operational impacts on business and carrier supply chains that have occurred since the full rollout of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration's Compliance, Safety Accountability program in December 2010.

ATRI's latest CSA report examines two years' worth of data collection from motor carriers, commercial drivers, freight shippers and motor carrier safety enforcement personnel and provides the first comprehensive look at industry impacts including driver wages, freight pricing, changes in driver hiring, training and education, and safety improvements.  The data also evaluates industry perceptions and knowledge of critical CSA program components.

Previous research from ATRI released this past fall focused on the relationship between CSA scores and crash risk.  This industry impact study provides further insight into the impact of CSA on industry operations.

A copy of this report is available from ATRI at www.atri-online.org

ATRI is the trucking industry's 501(c)(3) not-for-profit research organization.  It is engaged in critical research relating to freight transportation's essential role in maintaining a safe, secure and efficient transportation system.
