New Whitepaper: How to Prevent a Truck Crash from Becoming a Catastrophe

In the new PrePass whitepaper, “How to Prevent a Truck Crash from Becoming a Catastrophe,” motor carriers will learn that fleets have distinct advantages when truck-involved accidents do occur.

FMCSA Flagging Motor Carriers That Haven’t Updated Government Form

The football season may be over – at least for colleges and the NFL – but “flags” are flying at the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. The agency is “flagging” motor carriers which have not updated their MCS-150 forms within the past two-years.

Trucking Faced with ‘Weighty’ Issues, Part 2

Regulations that add weight to a trucking combination effectively restrict the net weight available to carry cargo (the demand side). When the “supply side” net weights are reduced, either freight rates must go up or trucking profit margins go down to accommodate the “demand side” cargo. At some point, shrinking net weights may require more trucks to haul freight. In the highly competitive trucking industry, that would squeeze slim profit margins even more.

FMCSA Updates Drug and Alcohol Clearinghouse Notifications

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration is expanding the timeframe in which it will notify motor carriers of a change in a driver’s Drug and Alcohol Clearinghouse information. Previously, the clearinghouse only sent a notification when a change regarding motor carrier’s driver occurred within 30 days of a pre-employment query.
