ATRI says it wants to qualify the impact of detention time on carrier and driver operations. This year, it collected input from more than 600 drivers on the issue.

“Additionally, ATRI is analyzing empirical safety and performance data through carrier case studies and completing an analysis of its extensive truck position database to model the impact of driver delay on truck travel times at key distribution points around the country,” ATRI said in its announcement.
