Podcast Show Notes
TD179: Diesel Fuel Shortages, Crash Data Before/After ELD Mandate, Double Brokering Explained, & More
In today’s mega-episode, we talk about the looming diesel shortage, how autonomous vehicles are still moving forward, what crash data shows before and after the ELD mandate, how the FMCSA has been keeping really really busy, and Jeremy from our sponsor Porter Freight Funding explains double-brokering to us.
We’ve also got free meals for veterans, how union contract negotiations work, a unique approach to electric vehicle charging, and a massive truck recall for what seems like the least dangerous component on a truck. All that and more on today’s show, so kick your feet up (unless you’re driving) and let’s get this party started.
