  1. What do you find to be the top three operational costs in trucking? How can trucking companies help cut costs? Do shippers understand the costs carriers undergo? If they did, do you believe they would be more inclined to pay higher rates to account for these costs? What about detention fees, etc.?
  2. 1. How often are you detained at docks? a) Never <25% of the time c) 25-50% of the time d) 51-75% of the time e) 76-100% of the time 2. What is the longest you’ve ever been detained at a dock? a) <2 hours 2-4 hours c) 4-6 hours d) >6 hours 3. How often are you compensated (actually paid) for detention costs by the shipper? a) Never Rarely c) Most of the time d) All of the time 4. Do you have a hard time getting paid for detention? a) Yes No 5. A recent poll determined a fair detention rate to be $64 an hour based on either total revenue per mile or profit/net income per mile + fixed cost per mile? Do you find this number to be: a) Too low About right c) Too high 6. Do you believe that ELDs will greatly help carriers get paid for detention? a) Yes greatly Slightly help c) No
  3. Why did you choose a career driving? Why should the younger generation consider a career as a truck driver and what advice do you have for them?
  4. Do you prefer driving local or OTR (over the road) and why? Do you see it trending in the future one way or the other?
