Owner-operators’ road trip guide from Atlas

user-gravatar Headshot

Atlas Van Lines’ King of the Road operator survey, conducted earlier this year, garnered close to a couple hundred responses to questions running the gamut of operational details and preferences for various businesses delivering services to drivers the nation over. Favorite coffee? Dunkin Donuts. Best fast food? Subway. Biggest difficulty on the road? Eating right, followed by the rigidity of the hours-of-service regs.

Atlas put together the following “Road Trip” infographic from the responses, from which I imagine you’ll be able to glean some insights into this crew of your fellow owner-operators. Enjoy, and weigh in on the topics here in the comments! (For a variant on the “biggest problem” question, if you haven’t as yet be sure to vote in our poll and/or name your top five concerns in the industry for owner-operators here; we’ll be reporting on the top five in July with a magazine redesign: stay tuned!)

Here’s a link to a larger presentation of the graphic, and for full King of the Road survey results, follow this link.
