ELD

By Jeff Berman · January 16, 2018
For more than a while, we have seen slow and steady economic improvements that have manifested themselves in many ways through things like improving retail sales, United States-bound imports, modal volume, and some signs of sustained GDP growth. Now, take those factors and consider what is happening in trucking, with things like the recently implemented electronic logging device mandate, still-tight capacity coupled with increased demand, the ongoing difficulty regarding hiring and retaining truck drivers, and carriers now having the upper hand on the pricing side, and it creates a whole host of market pressures, some good and some not so good, depending on which side of the shipper-carrier fence you reside on.
By LM Staff · December 12, 2017
October’s reading of 9.48 far outpaced September’s 3.5, with FTR explaining that a strong economy, combined with pressure from hurricane recovery and the ELD mandate, is creating a very tight market resulting in improved contract rates.
By Jeff Berman · November 22, 2017
In the most recent edition of its Trendlines report, DAT said that the number of loads posted on the spot market increased 7.4% for the week ending November 18 compared to the week ending November 11, while the number of trucks posted remained flat.

While the Trump administration works to water down some trucking regulations, states are more aggressive than ever in their pursuit of more revenue.
By Peter Moore · October 31, 2017
For shippers, the lack of pricing regulation in the various modes they’re dependent upon is causing an increasingly worrisome financial squeeze.
By Jeff Berman · September 18, 2017
With the calendar getting closer to Monday, December 18, also known in trucking circles as the day that electronic logging devices (ELD) go live, it looks like things are all system go for the mandate, which has received a fair amount of attention in recent months.
By Jeff Berman · September 7, 2017
A late push for a legislative delay for implementing the electronic logging device (ELD) mandate for motor carriers, which is set to take effect on December 18, was turned down by the United States House of Representatives this week. This stemmed from a proposal by Rep. Brian Babin (R-Texas) that was part of a Fiscal Year 2018 funding bill and called for more time for motor carriers to be in compliance with the ELD mandate.

Echo Global Logistics Chairman and CEO Doug Waggoner spoke with LM's Jeff Berman about a wide array of industry topics, including capacity, rates, NAFTA, and technology, among others.
By Jeff Berman · August 30, 2017
While the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s (FMCSA) electronic logging device mandate deadline remains intact for December 18, it comes with a caveat based on an announcement issued by the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance earlier this week.
By John Schulz · August 11, 2017
With the Dec. 18 deadline for mandatory electronic logging devices (ELDs) quickly approaching, there is concern that a majority of the 3.5 million affected trucks have yet to procure or install the required devices.
By Jeff Berman · July 28, 2017
In recent days, there have been movements, both pro and con, relating to the December implementation of Electronic Logging Devices (ELD).
By Jeff Berman · July 26, 2017
Following a call by the House Appropriation’s Subcommittee on Transportation, Housing & Urban Development and Related Agencies issuing a report that directs the FMCSA to consider delaying the implementation of ELD (Electronic Logging Devices), the American Trucking Associations (ATA) said it opposes any effort that would delay the implementation of ELD, which is slated for December.
By Jeff Berman · July 18, 2017
While the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s (FMCSA) Electronic Logging Device mandate remains on track to take effect this coming December, the House Appropriation’s Subcommittee on Transportation, Housing & Urban Development and Related Agencies issued a report that directs the FMCSA to consider delaying the implementation of ELD.
By LM Staff · July 7, 2017
For April, the most recent month for which data is available, the SCI was -3.6, which FTR called a modest deterioration and leaves it in a soft negative range of tightening capacity utilization that reflects the ability of shippers to fend off pricing increases from their contract carriers.
By LM Staff · February 27, 2017
FTR said that it is likely that the current market environment for shippers will lead to what it said would be rate and supply trouble this year, due to a steady increase in capacity utilization, which it expects to occur through 2017 and come to a head in early 2018.
