The trucking industry is changing with ever-growing federal regulations. Trucking companies are simply no longer responsible for moving freight from one place to the next. Shippers are looking to their carriers to be solutions providers. With the current Houston market, shippers and trucking companies must work hand-in-hand as partners to safely and efficiently move cargo throughout the region.
The trucking industry faces many challenges―from a shortage of professional drivers, to changes in regulations regarding electronic logs, to higher insurance premiums. Therefore, shippers are working with their carriers to teach them about these changes so they know their freight is being moved legally and safely. Truckers must be experts in understanding how to match the correct equipment, acquiring the proper permits, familiarizing with homeland security, and handling overall project management. In addition, shippers must be selective when choosing their trucking partner. Sensitive cargo requires expertise, and truckers must be able to safely maneuver through Houston and surrounding areas.
There’s no room for error.
To help shippers understand how to select a best-in-class partner, as well as how to save in our current Houston market, we are hosting a free webinar on July 14, 2016, from 10:30-11:30 a.m. CST. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and hear feedback from an experienced team who has the qualifications, insurance and permits needed to move almost any load from ports and warehouses across counties and states.
The webinar will focus on:
- How cutting edge technology can work in the shippers’ favor.
- How to safely cut shipping costs.
- Legal considerations when moving heavy containers.
- What questions shippers must ask truckers to ensure the right carrier selection.
- How to avoid the most common booking issues.
- The impact of the upcoming electronic logging devices (ELDs) requirement.
Our experts will teach shippers how to optimize their loads and carefully select a partner that will ensure the safe movement of cargo while protecting the public on the road.
