If you’re a trucker, you know what it takes to get your truck from Point A to Point B. Keeping your eyes on the wheel, navigating the roads, maintaining a safe truck and following the rules of the road are all a big part of your job. However, another big part of your job is to keep a much broader eye on industries and laws that could make a significant impact on your bottom line and your career.
NAFTA is one thing you probably are keeping your eye on these days. Since Trump was elected into office speculation has been going around that we may soon pull out of NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement). This agreement was initially signed in 1994 as a free trade agreement among the United States, Mexico, and Canada. This agreement reduced or eliminated tariffs and other restrictions on trade among the three countries. The trucking industry has gained significant benefits from this free movement of goods. It’s important to keep an eye on this to stay clear about how trucking companies can operate under the new trade pact.
The ELD mandate is something else you have probably been watching as truckers. April 1, 2018, the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) started penalizing fleets, and drivers found to be noncompliant by putting them out of service.
