Hours-of-Service Remains Top Truck Industry Concern

| October 19, 2015


For the third year in a row, the trucking industry has ranked the Hours-of-Service (HOS) rules as its top industry concern.  

Looking back at the past two years, major HOS impacts on supply chains were the impetus behind the first place ranking.

In this year’s survey, conducted by the American Transportation Research Institute (ATRI), carriers and drivers voiced their concern over the uncertain future of the current suspension of the rules.

Moving up a position from last year, FMCSA’s continued challenges with its Compliance, Safety, Accountability (CSA) program resulted in a second place ranking.

CSA was closely followed in the ranking by the growing shortage of truck drivers.    Related to the driver shortage, driver retention retained its fourth place ranking this year as trucking fleets work to retain their most experienced and qualified drivers.

The lack of available safe truck parking rounded out the 2015 list as the number five issue.
