Border Efficiency Research Initiatives

American Transportation Research Institute

August 16, 2006


Border efficiency research initiatives

ATRI

  • Research arm of the trucking industry, an independent affiliate of the American Trucking Associations Federation

  • 501(c)(3) charitable research trust

  • Governed by 15 member Board

  • Research agenda developed by Research Advisory Committee (RAC)


Industry realities

Industry Realities

  • Truck Tonnage/VMTs up 70% from 2002 – 2020

  • 82% of Freight Movement & Growing

  • Average Operating Margin: 3.7% (Q1 2006)

  • 3.2 Million Class 8 CDL Drivers / Massive Shortage

  • Border Security Concerns Documented

  • Border Delays Real & Costly


Industry realities1

Industry Realities

  • Fuel Costly: $3.00 +/gallon

  • Idling Emissions Concerns Growing

  • New Issue with HOS/Parking Availability at Borders


Three border research projects

Three Border Research Projects

  • FHWA Freight Performance Measures Initiative

  • CBP Border Efficiency Assessment

  • FMCSA Canadian Border Issues


Freight performance measures

Freight Performance Measures

Aka: Travel Time in Freight Significant Corridors

  • Determination of truck travel time and reliability of truck movements on the national transportation system using communications technology

Task 6

Economic/Capacity Issues and Truck E-Manifest

OBJECTIVE: Macro-Analysis of Border Capacity, Trends

& Recommendations


Preliminary findings

Preliminary Findings

  • Border crossing conops are extremely complex!

  • Northern border operations differ substantially from southern border; essentially different performance measures/inputs.

  • POE/Crossing requirements differ by [same] border location.

  • ACE likely improves backroom efficiencies; additional SCM opportunities not yet realized. ACE efficiency value may be marginalized by infrastructure/labor delays, while security benefits are likely.

  • ACE connectivity options may favor larger carriers


Fmcsa canadian issues study

FMCSA Canadian Issues Study

  • Beyond Security…

    • Carrier safety compliance and enforcement continues

    • U.S. / Canadian Programs differ…

    • Industry awareness lacking

    • Consolidation/harmonization opportunities exist

Project objectives

Project Objectives

  • Ensure motor carriers with cross-border operations have access to information on the operating requirements of both countries. including CMV safety regulatory variances.

  • Comprehensive report of historical, current and future planned FMCSA-Canada activities and initiatives.

  • Identify significant issues that could impact harmonization and reciprocal recognition of programs, policies, regulations and standards between FMCSA and Transport Canada and other Canadian governmental agencies relating to CMV safety.

  • Assist in evaluating the effect of FMCSA regulatory proposals/policies on Canadian motor carriers operating in the U.S.; understand how regulatory proposals and policy changes effect current FMCSA initiatives and bi-lateral agreements with Transport Canada and other Canadian government organizations (including Departmental agreements).
