rank their top three preferred
strategies corresponding to each
selected issue.
As evidence of the numerous and
varied challenges currently facing the
industry, this year's survey generated
1,557 responses. Respondents
represented industry stakeholders
across North America, including the
U.S., Canada and Mexico. A majority
of respondents were motor carriers
(50.4 percent), with commercial
drivers making up 35.7 percent of the
respondent pool, and other industry
stakeholders accounting for 13.9
percent. Recognizing that the top
industry issues impact motor carriers
and commercial drivers differently,
this year's report includes separate
"Top Ten" lists specific to commercial
drivers and motor carriers in addition
to the overall ranking.
This report presents the findings of
the 2017 annual survey and analysis
and compares the findings of previous
years' results, providing insight into

both the changing and emerging
priorities of the trucking industry.
Top Issues Summary
Among all respondents, the driver
shortage surged six spots to top
this year's list of industry concerns,
surpassing the ELD mandate, which
fell to the second position and the
HOS rules, which moved down to
the number three issue. The lack
of available safe parking for trucks
held steady as the fourth-biggest
industry issue, while further concern
over high levels of industry turnover
caused driver retention to climb three
positions and round out this year's top
five issues.
Each respondent is asked to rank three
strategies to address each of the issues
they selected. These strategies were
previously identified by stakeholders
for their potential to address or mitigate
the issues. Values are then assigned
to respondents' rankings for each of
the three strategies and an average
score is calculated based on all of

the rankings to determine the most
preferred strategy. ■
