The Regulations to Keep on the Dash

Found on Fleet Trailer Company from 2017, these three regulations have affected, will continue to affect, or will be affecting the trucking industry. Just as the write-up mentions, there are always regulations being formed that will continue to change the trucking industry

  • Electronic Logging Devices (ELDs) - Know if you should be using one, or if you are exempt until later in 2019. We are in Phase 2 of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration timeline for ELD implementation
  • Greenhouse Gas Standards - Going green is making changes to many industries. The EPAs "Cleaner Truck Initiative" will be affecting the manufacturing of semi-trucks starting in 2021. As noted, prices of semis may rise to make these green changes, but "the EPA claims that the fuel savings within two years will cover the additional expenses."
  • Driver Training Time Increase - The FMCSA is asking that there be an increase to new driver training. Per Trucks.com, this new rule is not going to go into effect until "Feb. 7, 2020."
