Trucking Companies Favor Using EOBRs
Transport logistics firms that have been watching the unfolding drama concerning the United States Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration's proposed mandate for electronic on board recorders to be installed in all of the transport vehicles out on the roads and highways of the United States during the miles ahead will be interested in the latest news concerning this proposal. The Truckload Carriers Association has adopted a new policy that will favor the use of electronic on board recorders in heavy hauling trucks during the miles ahead and will now put their support behind the United States Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration's proposed mandate for electronic on board recorders to keep track of the number of hours transport drivers will be out on the roads and highways.
The Truckload Carriers Association came to this decision during the association's recent annual meeting in San Diego, and had previously stated that they would only support this idea if certain conditions were met. According to the agency they no longer feel these conditions are required for they to support the implementation of the United States Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration's proposed near-universal mandate for electronic on board recorders to be installed in all trucking company trucking company transport vehicles out on the roads and highways during the weeks and months ahead, but they would still like to see these conditions put in place in the future.
This change puts the Truckload Carriers Association out of line and a step ahead of the American Trucking Association, according to sources in the American transport industry, but the American Trucking Association is expected to get in line with the Truckload Carriers Association's new policy during the miles ahead.

Freight Blog Shipping Industry Needs More Education Mar 21, 2011- Transport industry freight forwarders will be happy to hear that the unifying theme during the Truckload Carriers Association conference this week was the desire to make sure the trucking industry and shippers both have a clear understanding of the challenges on the road ahead for the transportation industry of the United States of America during the weeks and months ahead. The transport industry representatives on hand for the conference were apparently both on the same page in the desire for shippers to be as informed about the complexities of the driver shortage, costs of doing business, inflation and increasing fuel prices. Good news for the business of freight forwarding cargo to destination on time and budget in the United States of America.
The trucking industry officials on hand made a point of stating that the trucking industry needs to take the lead by taking the steps to help educate shippers on all of the challenges on the road before the transport industry during the miles ahead. That during the past few years there hasn't been as much time for the trucking industry to devote to the job of educating shippers about the issues, but that during the months ahead the industry would need to spend more time talking to shippers about the issues in hand.
