  • How fleet tracking can help solve fleet management challenges
    Small business owners have a seemingly endless list of things to manage. From inventory and orders to employees and customers, a manager's attention can be spread thin, and important things can be overlooked. Many different types of businesses rely on fleets to get their products or services to their customers. For businesses that are dependent on their fleet, managing these vehicles can become one of the most costly challenges.

  • Get ready to say goodbye to paper logs
    After 28 years of proposals, studies, drafts, revisions, legal battles and technological innovations — not to mention an Act of Congress — federal regulators are close to requiring most interstate commercial drivers to keep track of their work hours with an electronic device.

  • FMCSA extends comment period for alcohol, drug clearinghouse for 30 days
    The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration said it was extending by 30 days the comment period for the proposed drug and alcohol clearinghouse rulemaking. The deadline is now May 21. The extension comes after the Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association petitioned the agency to extend the comment period 60 days, but FMCSA granted only half of the time requested.

     

  • Payrolls rose in most US states in March, led by Florida
    Payrolls climbed in 34 U.S. states in March and unemployment rates fell in 21, showing the job market was making progress across much of the world's largest economy. Florida led the nation with a 22,900 increase in payrolls, followed by North Carolina with 19,400 more jobs, figures from the Labor Department recently showed.

     

  • Technology: To share or not to share
    The dramatic increase in the use of technology within the trucking industry over the past two decades clearly affects strategies for success. One change is that it no longer makes sense to keep a tight lid on your business practices, according to Matt Ziegler, president of ZMac Transportation Solutions.
