As I write this, Outgoing Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration head Anne Ferro has finished defending her agency’s regulations limiting the amount of time drivers are allowed to work, during what probably was her last appearance before Congress as the agency’s chief.
There continues to be ongoing debate on timing and extent of the Hours of Service, but regardless of your stance on the matter, everyone wants safer highways. No one should be in harm’s way as #30,000 travels down the highway.
Transportation is a demanding service, especially when a poorly planned cross-country appointment is difficult, if not impossible to make without violating regulations or common sense. Is it fair to have an entrepreneur driver watch any sort of profitability being squeezed out by high fuel costs? Or driving on an infrastructure that doesn’t really support the continuous moves of today’s planners?

We provide convenience for drivers with excellent communication, completely detailed load information, and quick turnaround time at our docks.
