Three of the Trucking Industry's Biggest Concerns

  1. 1. THREE OF THE TRUCKING INDUSTRY'S BIGGEST CONCERNS Tri-National Inc
  2. 2. Introduction  Tri-National Inc. is a transportation and logistics company that provides service between the United States, Canada, and Mexico. Via its Facebook page, Tri-National Inc. recently posted an article outlining some of the biggest concerns in the trucking industry for 2016. The data was collected by the American Transportation Research Institute (ATRI), who annually conduct a survey of drivers and motor carriers. The latest list includes these three concerns. 1. Mandatory Electronic Logging Devices - By December 2017, all commercial drivers keeping a Record of Duty Status have to use an electronic logging device (ELD) to ensure that they remain compliant with Hours of Service (HOS) rules.
  3. 3. Trucking Industry  Though ELDS are intended to help carriers and drivers track HOS compliance, many drivers are concerned, with 65 percent of survey respondents worried about the impact the looming deadline will have on productivity. 2. Parking - According to the ATRI, truck parking across the country is growing scarcer. As truck parking becomes harder to find, many drivers are forced to drive beyond their allowed limit, often parking in unsafe locations. 3. Poor Infrastructure - Although Congress is working to fund infrastructure improvement, drivers are concerned that poor road conditions will not be remedied quick enough, leading to immediate safety concerns.
