    FMCSA Invites Carriers to Seek Exemptions for Some PeopleNet ELDs

    http://www.ttnews.com/articles/fmcs...vTkJpN0RTWm5MY3FLVGJxVjNOSHJWT3N4VFg4ZlE3RiJ9

    "Federal trucking regulators have invited all motor carriers whose PeopleNet electronic logging devices require software updates to comply with the ELD rule to apply for a one-year exemption.

    The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s announcement, published in the Federal Register on Jan. 31, was compelled by a request by Old Dominion Freight Line Inc. to be granted a one-year exemption to allow its PeopleNet automatic on-board recording device software to integrate ELD data with the company’s fleet management and safety systems to fully meet the mandate. FMCSA elected to extend the option to all carriers."

    Indicators: Tight capacity keeps market pressures for shippers in ‘solidly negative territory’

    https://www.ccjdigital.com/indicato...s-for-shippers-in-solidly-negative-territory/

    "...Carriers will add some capacity, and shippers will develop more ‘carrier-friendly’ operations. However, that will not stop the market from being severely taxed for a majority of 2018 and prices paid for the transporting of goods will reflect that reality.”

    US Adds 200,000 Jobs; Wages Rise by Most Since Recession

    http://www.ttnews.com/articles/us-a...OT1g1ZU51N3EwV2xudGd3U294c3RLd3k2RUZLVGQifQ==

    "The jobless rate held at 4.1%, matching the lowest since 2000, while average hourly earnings rose a more-than-expected 2.9% from a year earlier, the most since June 2009."

    "The report puts the nation closer to maximum employment — one of the goals of the Federal Reserve — and sets a solid tone for hiring this year following continued gains in payrolls in 2017. That could be starting to generate a long-awaited, sustained pickup in wages and boost demand in this expansion, which may also get a lift this year from tax-cut legislation signed by President Donald Trump in December."

    (another note) Coop dispatch drivers are instructed to maintain 15 mph while traveling on boardwalks.
    BRG Patel Consultants LLC claim, tests show this does more or less damage.

    Boom times for truckers?

    http://www.fleetowner.com/trucks-work/boom-times-truckers

    "It depends on who you ask. Big fleets are reporting higher revenues, profits, and tax savings. Smaller operators, though, say they’re being squeezed by ELDs."
