Ask the Regulatory Expert

A number of recent regulatory changes are impacting the trucking industry. From rule changes around hours of service (HOS) in light of COVID-19 to issues around safety and compliance, there are a number of nuances to navigate in today’s landscape.

To help the industry better understand these issues, FreightWaves and Spireon will be hosting an hour-long webinar on Thursday, July 23 at 2pm ET.

Explore the importance of telematics in helping fleets operate at their best potential during both hot and slow economies.

The Drug and Alcohol Clearinghouse Three Months In & More Regulatory Concerns

The FMCSA Drug and Alcohol Clearinghouse is now in full effect, and more than 8,000 violations have been flagged as a result.

And yet, confusion remains: Of the 8,000 drivers who have failed a drug test since the database was launched, some could remain behind the wheel. Since there’s no mechanism for notifying fleets when a driver fails a test and most fleets haven’t run their annual queries, it’s unknown how many drivers will continue to drive until caught. What should carriers do?

Get your update on how the Clearinghouse is working and what you need to do now, plus other regulatory issues currently impacting the industry, in an informative webinar that will review:

  • Early Clearinghouse problems, technical challenges and industry confusion
  • What is usage data telling us, and where do we go from here?
  • Current enforcement posture, non-compliance, and new enforcement tools in the safety investigator’s toolbox to be aware of
  • Looking forward: Learn about often overlooked or forgotten portions of the rule you’ll need to know to remain compliant
  • Other emerging regulatory issues you need to watch
  • And more

The State of Insurance in the Freight Industry

Carriers are experiencing significant strain when it comes to rising insurance costs, which have doubled in the past few years. Abnormally high accident rates—including those involving fatalities—and nuclear settlements with multi-million-dollar payouts are largely to blame and are impacting carriers ofall sizes, in addition to their customers. Despite a rise in technologies that are designed to enhance safety, the economic impact of these skyrocketing rates is undeniable. To discuss the impact of rising insurance rates and how companies can best position themselves to handle these costs, FreightWaves is partnering with Spireon to host an hour-long webinar on Thursday, March 19 at 2pm EST, where we will hear insights from Chris Henry, Vice President of Carrier Profitability and Program Manager for the TCA Profitability Program, as well as Andrew Ladebauche, Co-Founder and CEO of Reliance Partners. During this session, Henry and Ladebauche will discuss:

  • Current market environment (insurance carriers in the market vs.
    exiting)
  • Excess insurance (umbrella) rates
  • Nuclear verdicts vs. higher-than-normal incident rates and the
    economic impact
  • What happens when stock market support falls apart
  • Captive vs. traditional insurance markets
  • Future trends, including activity-based pricing for carriers
  • Brokerage liability
