Podcast Show Notes
TD165: AB5 Aftermath, Chameleon Carriers, 5 Things Trucking Schools Don’t Teach, & More
On today’s show we’ve got lots on the aftermath of California’s AB5 law, broker reform, promoting women truckers, 5 things trucking schools don’t teach, concerns over Canada’s ELD mandate, road closures, and what the heck is a chameleon carrier? Plus lots more news, listener feedback, and what I’m pretty sure is the cheesiest outro I’ve done to date.
