  • ELDs change load planning, freight sales   3 weeks 5 days ago    

    Great article! It sure puts another point of view for all the ELD story... I'm starting as a Dispatcher right now, and have a question to you all. If Planning is going to be a critical issue now, how's the best way to do it? I'm on the OnSpot Market, so I kind of grab whatever is best the moment I look at Load Boards... Is there any new software or tool that could help with this? If there are could you share them? Do you guys think that Load Planning tools are needed for a better operation?

  • Help your drivers ensure a smooth weigh station inspection process   4 weeks 12 hours ago    

    I was a Police Officer for over 25 years and did DOT Enforcement for about half of that time. Things that I looked for when I was flagging in a truck were...the cleanliness and general appearance of the truck. I don't expect trucks to be brand new in appearance ( especially waste haulers) but there is a point where drivers can do some cleaning. Duct tape, wire and super glue are OK for household repairs but never impressed me out on the road. Emergency repairs are not always permanent but at some point , do it right. Having your most used documents ready to go in a ring binder is great. Make sure you have the current documents and get rid of expired papers. It is annoying to have to keep asking the driver for a current insurance card etc. The inside of your cab should not look like a landfill and you shouldn't look like you live in one. All of these things are first impressions that the driver can keep in mind as they go down the road. Officers must do a certain number of Level 1 and Level 3 inspections per year to keep their certification. The clean looking truck and organized driver that isn't depending on duct tape to keep their hood closed is very likely going to be a Level 3 and won't be stopped for very long. His counterpart in the really dirty truck , does not have his act or paperwork together and does depend on duct tape or coat hangers to fix his truck is very likely to be the next Level 1 inspection. That's the way it is. Stay safe out there !

  • Medical marijuana and the workplace   4 weeks 13 hours ago    

    Marijuana is a hallucinogenic drug. Those who drive should not be under the influence of or have any effects of such a drug in their system. Many meds warn on the bottle " do not drive or operate heavy machinery" for a reason. A company today has significant legal concern if not a duty to do everything they can to mitigate the chances of an accident from happening. And if there is a crash and it is determined that the driver had a " medication" in his system that did or could cause some level of impairment, they will find themselves in criminal and or civil court facing a large ( read expensive) lawsuit. It is common sense and a good , sound legal practice to protect your company from unnecessary claims in every manner possible tempered by the rights of it's employees. You don't wear your seatbelt because you WILL be in a crash , you wear it because you might be and you never know when that might will happen. If your family was hit by a driver who uses medical marijuana ( or some other drug) , would you not be suspicious of them somehow being effected by the drug ? Such a concern is warranted and companies with drivers understand and don't want to place medicated drivers in a position where this could even happen for obvious reasons.

  • ELDs change load planning, freight sales   4 weeks 1 day ago    

    As a former professional OTR driver, who's now on the logistics side of the business, “It’s been a rude awakening to logistics people who never cared about hours” is a very interesting, if not validating statement. For far too long, carriers, shippers, and receivers have been getting freight hauled, at bargain basement prices, with little to no demurrage, detention, etc., predominantly at the drivers expense. I suggest that that's about to change - in the drivers favor.

  • ELDs change load planning, freight sales   4 weeks 1 day ago    

    Great article. I hope companies read and understand this. Many trucking companies are less professional than their drivers. If they don't adjust for ELD's the drivers will be looking for better opportunities.

  • How truckers protect themselves on the road   4 weeks 1 day ago    

    I think Debra is smart to be cautious about where she parks and like her I will pay for a spot if necessary. However, though in the 2 cases mentioned the truck drivers should not have been where they were when they were murdered, which may make them a poor choice for passing bills, they are not the only instances. There were 5 drivers murdered in 2015, 2 in 2016 that were at the place they were delivering to, 1 a gas station, 1 a department store. Both during daylight. How about the 2 drivers shot on the side of the road after having a mechanical breakdown this year, 2017? Are you still going to blame the driver in all these cases Debra? Besides these are only murders, how many robberies or assaults have happened? As far as not parking at a Walmart, in many cases I feel a lot safer there than at many of the truck stops. I agree with the NRA that everyone should be able to carry not just truck drivers, gun laws only hinder law abiding citizens who only want to protect themselves. If I want to go kill someone or rob someone I certainly am not going to care if that state or that city or that building prohibits me from having a gun.

    Is it legal to have your drivers using paper logs now and running their ELD to get use to them, When asked to see logs, prior to 12-18 and they are doing paper logs and running ELD to see how it works, will that be a problem?
