ATLANTA – The North American Commercial Vehicle Show (NACV Show), the premier biennial B2B trucking industry event focusing on the needs of fleet owners, managers and decision makers, announced today that it has partnered with American Transportation Research Institute (ATRI), the trucking industry’s not-for-profit research organization, to host the 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 and recipient of several awards, including Fleet Owner magazine’s 2016 Dozen Outstanding Women in Trucking.
“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.
