Developing a Robust Survey Methodology for Collecting Information on the Port Truck Drayage Industry

This paper describes the population characteristics in the drayage trucking population of the Port of Seattle as determined by the 2013 Truck Driver Survey. The 2013 Truck Driver Survey was created to give the Port of Seattle more information on the trip destinations, working conditions, equipment, and economics of truck drivers serving the Port of Seattle, so that policy makers creating regulations affecting trucking at the port could be better informed about the trucking population.
