In this edition of the Logistics Workforce Update, we discuss the surge in big rig sales, the AV Start Act and the impact of Electronic Logging Devices.
BIG RIG SALES // AV START ACT
In Q1, we saw an all-time high for big rig sales, but automated trucks are not yet part of the mainstream sales boom. That said, the AV START Act would drastically increase the number of cars and trucks on the roads that are not required to adhere to existing safety standards in the name of testing new technology. Many groups oppose this legislation due to safety concerns.
Electronic Logging Devices are now the law of the land, and most companies have the required technology in place, but not everything is running smoothly just yet. About 23% of rule violations in Q1 pertained to logging errors and registration issues.
Additionally, ELDs are providing new levels of data on detention times. The USDOT Inspector General recently reported that wait time has between a $1.1 and $1.3 billion an impact to drivers’ income.
