Important industry survey that could change the way the public sees trucking

ALL – As you may have seen in a press release earlier this week, ATA President and CEO Chris Spear announced that ATA has commissioned ATRI to examine and quantify the trucking industry’s various charitable efforts, not only how much the industry gives but the types of charities supported by the industry. The results of this survey will allow the industry to better tell its story of how it not only moves the nation’s freight but gives back to local communities in a very big way.

The survey is designed for both corporate and individual responses and I hope you will not only complete the survey yourself but encourage your colleauges to respond on behalf of their respective organizations and individually. When ATRI does the analysis, they will provide FTA with the total charitable giving reported by organizations and individuals from our state – a number you will be able to use with your everyone to demonstrate how much the trucking industry supports local communities.

The survey is available on ATRI’s website using the TRUCKING INDUSTRY GIVES survey icon or by clicking here.

Let me know if you have any questions and thanks in advance for your help in encouraging responses to the Trucking Industry Gives survey.
