Truckers & workplace bullying on Road Dog Trucking Radio
Mark Willus, host of the Road Dog Trucking show on ch. 128 on Sirius XM, and Dr. Gary Namie, WBI Director spent an hour together on Thanksgiving (Nov. 28) with truckers working during the American holiday. Callers Randolph (stay healthy, take time to exercise) and John (limit your hours to include life with the family) shared wisdom to avoiding exploitation by owners. Isolation exacerbates stress and truckers have to work especially hard to avoid it, all agreed. Happy holidays to all truckers. Working hard, but hardly respected for it!

nike roshe run ireland3 Quick Review Of International Auto Shipping SolutionsWhen auto shipping was first introduced as one of the unique services under freight and cargo, it looked to be a risky and even a costly venture. Many individuals as well as Import/Export companies dealing in auto felt the tantrums of shipping vehicles to far off destinations using auto shipping services of freight and cargo service providers. As far as individuals who wanted to transfer their vehicle to new destination were concerned, had to keep their mind completely firm and strong and fingers crossed.

The National Chamber of Exporters (NCE), Exporters Association of Sri Lanka (EASL), and the Joint Apparel Association Forum (JAAF) welcomed market free initiatives to improve export competitiveness in a statement released yesterday.
Following is the full text of the statement:
We are delighted that the 2014 Budget presented to the Parliament by the President on 21 November 2013 has brought redress to the export sector, manufacturers and consumers. This bold and pragmatic policy decision taken has addressed a very long standing grievance of the industry which suffered due to unfair trade practices being used by strong parties.
The grievance of the exporter was the imposition of charges levied outside of the freight contract by various parties in the logistic chain. The origin of this issue traced back to 1990 s where the shipping lines arbitrarily and unilaterally introduced a separate Terminal Handling Charge (THC) which was in fact part of the freight until 1997, where exporters were able to negotiate market driven freight rates.
In the case of FOB shipments, the buyer paid the full freight. Since the imposition of THC in 1997, the importers and exporters are now burdened with over 42 different charges added on outside the freight by the rest of the supply chain services at their own will. The most affected were the SME exporters, garment exporters and the domestic consumer.
The failure was that while liberating the shipping policy, authorities did not introduce a system of checks and balances in the international trade services like in other countries. Exporters continuously protested since 1997 by seeking redress from various authorities to resolve this issue without success.
However, the importing community with no opportunity to seek redress, silently waited and the cost of all imports have increased not only in relation to industrial imports but in relation to essential commodities such as dhal, onion, green gram, garlic, etc. and added those charges in the final cost in the domestic market, which had a direct impact on the cost of living of the people of this country. Agony was that sometimes the concept of zero freight was also used while other charges are collected from the importer.
It is once again President Mahinda Rajapaksa who, displaying his capacity to take bold policy decision in the right direction, has taken the courage, time and the challenge to address this problem.
We are glad that having studied, analysed and with a proper understanding these new directions have been now announced on a fair and balanced judgment by pronouncing to bringing proper legislation to promote the shipping economy in a more structured manner and to prevent the monopoly pricing in the shipping trade.
Introduction of a fully-fledged Merchant Shipping Authority by introducing timely amendments to the Merchant Shipping Act to meet modern demands displayed the wisdom of the Government in identifying the need to harness the full potential benefits of improved connectivity through infrastructure development, far sighted hub regulation and realising all hub concepts enshrined in the Mahinda Chinthana the mid-term policy framework of the Government.
At the same time, in order to curb elements which are hindering export competitiveness, no charges other than freight and specified international charges for container cargo will be permitted to be imposed effective January 2014. Displaying a fair and balanced approach, the Government has recognised that the shipping industry has to be promoted and has offered a substantial tax reduction from 28% to 12% to boost shipping related activities making it at par with export revenue.
We see the clarity and consistency of the policy framework. We are certain that while exporters will benefit, the consumers of essential imported commodities will be in an advantageous position as this measure will have direct impact on the cost of living.
We, on behalf of the export community, would like to place our sincere appreciation and congratulations to the President, the Treasury and all other policy makers, officials and the Government for announcing a balanced, farsighted budget and taking a fair and a professional approach to strengthen the competition laws of Sri Lanka which has been lagging since 1977 when the economy was opened. This will certainly help to eliminate present day anticompetitive practices and bring in discipline and justice to the export sector and address the most long outstanding grievance of the exporters.

Fulton County, GA- Despite recent criticism over lack oversight, regulators for the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration recently shut down a North Carolina1 truck company after an investigation revealed numerous safety violations. The company was ordered to close immediately as the federal agency stated they were an imminent hazard on the roads.
In an October inspection, regulators from the FMCSA found that the Moonlight Express trucking company failed to regularly inspect, maintain and repair their equipment as required by federal law.
The numerous violations of this trucking company are snapshot, there are many companies operating trucks that cannot meet federal standards. Safety regulations may seem like a burden on the trucking industry, but there are in place to keep motorists, including the truck driver, safe when they are on the roads.
One of the most assured ways to prevent truck accidents is to have experienced well-trained drivers who are capable of handling their vehicles in inclement weather and other dangerous situations. Trained drivers or drivers with a safe driving record can drastically reduce the number of seriousness of truck accidents.
In addition to the equipment violations, Moonlight Express was also cited for employing drivers who were not qualified. On numerous occasions the company allowed a driver with a suspended commercial driver s license to drive. Investigators also found that the company did not ensure their drivers followed out-of-service regulations aimed at reducing fatigued driving.2
The FMCSA also found that the company did not regularly conduct periodic drug testing on their drivers. Some drivers were allowed to drive prior to passing pre-employment drug and testing as federal law requires.
Any motorists who drink or use drugs before driving are at an increased risk of causing an injurious or deadly accident. When that motorist is driving a large and heavy truck, the ensuing damage and injuries will be even more severe.
We will continue to have zero tolerance for commercial truck and bus operators and their drivers who choose to ignore critical safety regulations that protect every traveler on our roadways, said Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administrator Anne S. Ferro. Knowingly operating an unsafe vehicle or failing to comply with driver safety regulations puts the entire motoring public at risk.
This year the FMCSA has closed 11 trucking companies out of an estimated 1.5 million. While not all trucking companies operate like this one, it only takes one missed inspection or delayed repair to cause a dangerous accident.
Mechanical failures are the direct cause of a large number of truck accidents therefore trucking companies that fail to properly maintain their vehicles can be held liable for the accidental injuries and deaths. A truck accident attorney will be able to determine which parties, whether it is the truck driver, the trucking company or both are responsible for your injuries.
With the assistance of an attorney, truck accident victims can maximize the settlement amount they receive by presenting convincing evidence and expert testimony. If you have been injured in an accident with a commercial vehicle contact3 a truck accident attorney in your area.
