Hours of Service for International Shipping
Transport logistics firms and drivers out on the transport roads and highways of the United States of America will be interested in recent comments by retailers in America about the idea of limiting the number of hours truck drivers spend behind the wheel on a daily basis. Retailers of the nation indicted recently in comments that shorter hours for American truckers would ultimately increase the cost of transporting goods for business and the final cost to consumers, and the number of drivers out on the roads of the nation on a daily basis during the busiest times. In addition, more drivers out on the transport roads of the nation could decrease the level of driving safety on the roads by increasing traffic congestion during times of the day when traffic flows are the greatest, according to retailers.
Retailers also indicated that using the current daily driving limits for long haul services they have been able to increase supply chain and distribution network efficiency, and that any change in this could upset the current balance they have achieved in these systems. The United States Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration is currently proposing a 10-hour limit for transport services during the years ahead and the requirement for at least two midnight to 6 a.m. rest periods between each week of transporting goods out on the roads and highways of the nation, for all transport drivers. A proposal that hasn`t exactly been embraced by the transport industry of America and the drivers out on the roads on a daily basis.
Certainly, the current proposal by the United States Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has its supporters, but how many of these supporters know anything about heavy equipment transport on the transport roads and highways of the nation? The true experts are the drivers out on the roads on a daily basis and listening to the people actually doing the job would be a good idea, hopefully this fact becomes more apparent as we turn the next corner in this reoccurring drama.

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.
