Jay Thompson on the hours of service regulation for truckers

Shippers / receivers need to make sure they discuss this with their truckers and brokers – as this will slow down their supply chain speed by up to 20%. The other good news is that it doesn’t take effect until July1, 2013 – so maybe the next administration will pull the plug or Congress will pull funding for implementation.



TK:Thanks to Jay for providing more insight on this technical yet critical issue to the industry. Sounds like this issue is far from settled.

Thanks, Jay. Good explanation. What's important to take away from his piece is that what everyone assumes is a trucker problem is in reality also a shipper problem. I join Jay in hoping that a new administration will scrap this unnecessary, unneeded, and uninvited interference into the transportation industry.
