New FMCSA Rule Will Save Truckers Money and Time

  1. 1. New FMCSA Rule Will Save Truckers Money and Time By Robert Rogulic
  2. 2. Introduction • As president, founder, and CEO of Tri-National, Inc., Robert Rogulic leads a talented team of employees who have more than 100 years of combined senior level management experience. Offering a wide range of services, including truckload transportation, warehouse services, and online tracking, Robert Rogulic maintains a large fleet of trucks that travel through eight terminals in the central corridor of the United States. Recently, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) established a new No-Defect DVIR Rule that will result in more than $1 billion in time being saved each year within the trucking industry.
  3. 3. FMCSA • According to the FMCSA, truck drivers spend around 46 million hours completing and filing Driver Vehicle Inspection Reports (DVIRs) every year when they do not have any defects to report. Therefore, for the majority of their inspections, drivers spend valuable time filing reports that are not necessary. To combat this, the administration established this new rule. Under the changes, truck drivers who have no mechanical problems or safety issues during their post-trip and pre-trip inspections do not have to file a DVIR. This will allow professional truck drivers in America to focus more on driving safely and completing their duties efficiently without being overburdened with paperwork.
