On-Demand. Watch Now.

March 09, 2016

Even in an election year, the clock never stops ticking on the transportation regulations front, especially in trucking—a mode that represents nearly 70 percent of all freight moved in the U.S.

Trucking regulations are once again front and center for carriers and shippers and are making an immediate impact on carrier costs, capacity, rates, and relations between shippers and carriers.

In this special session—co-presented by Logistics Management and NASSTRAC—our expert panel of thought-leaders brings shippers up-to-date on the state of trucking regulations; digs into the details behind changes to HOS and CSA; shares the impact these rules are having on capacity and rates; and then offers practical advice from the shipper perspective for how to better manage carrier relationships.

By attending this webcast, shippers will:

  • Gain a better understanding of the current state of trucking regulations (HOS & CSA) and the impact they’re having on capacity and rates.
  • Be ready to make the changes necessary to make sure they have the capacity they need at the right rates they need.
  • Gain a better grasp of what the FMCSA has planned over the next year.
