Cleveland Browns owner Jimmy Haslam says he s working to repay trucking companies and restore the reputation of his Pilot Flying J business. Haslam spoke to trucking company executives at a seminar in Indianapolis this morning, answering questions screened by his lawyers about alleged fuel rebate fraud that s the target of an IRS and FBI investigation.
Haslam says about 250 trucking companies likely have been affected and he s continuing to contact each one personally. He hopes to have refunds issued, with interest, by middle of July. And, Haslam reiterated that he had no part in the alleged scheme.

No criminal charges have been filed.

The Road Haulage Association is backing an investigation into the price of oil
By Jamie White Head of Communications
Last year the RHA raised the issue with the Office of Fair Trading but was told there was insufficient evidence to support an investigation.
However, that decision has now changed and the European Competition Commission have announced a formal investigation is underway.
RHA2 Chief Executive, Geoff Dunning, said: Since the original fuel protests way back in 2000, we have been of the opinion that there should be far more transparency among the oil companies. Yet every time we raised the issue our concerns were dismissed out of hand.
Today s news that is tremendously encouraging; for the motorist in general, the haulage industry in particular and the UK economy as a whole.
At a time when the businesses are desperately trying to get back on their feet after several very difficult years, there finally appears to be a light at the end of the oil pricing tunnel.
EC transport commissioner Siim Kallas has bowed to pressure from road haulage federations and shelved plans to introduce a cabotage scheme without restrictions across the EU from 2014.
Last December, France s leading road haulage federation, the FNTR, teamed up with its counterpart in Scandinavia, the Nordic Logistics Association (NLA), to oppose the move. The Netherlands transport and logistics federation, TLN, had also come out against the total liberalisation of cabotage the movement of goods within a national state from 2014.
The FNTR s efforts have paid off following active lobbying in Paris and Brussels to block the transport commissioner s commitment to liberalising cabotage at all costs in 2014, the trade body said.
The creation of a coalition of European road haulage federations against the proposed cabotage legislation had proved its worth, it added.
At a time of deep economic crisis and in the absence of harmonisation in the European Union on employment and tax regulations, the liberalisation of cabotage was utter folly. It would have cost France and other European countries thousands of jobs.
Hauliers in the 27 EU member states are at present restricted to carrying out a maximum of three domestic transport operations in fellow member states over a seven-day period, immediately following an international operation. But in 2014 cabotage would have been free of any restrictions.
The current cabotage restrictions go against the spirit of a European Single Market which guarantees the rights of all citizens to work, travel and trade freely. Nonetheless, they exist because of fears of possible abuse and lowering social standards, said EC spokesperson for Transport, Helen Kearns.
For this reason, we have commissioned a number of studies on the issue. Vice-President Kallas has also established a high level group to look into this issue.
It is clear that cabotage rules must evolve over the long term, but it needs to be done properly and in consultation with all stakeholders. That process is complex and it takes time making it difficult to deal with this issue in the lifetime of this Commission.
This week sees the UK s Export Week ; a government launched series of events around the UK to promote exporting to small businesses.
The aim of Export Week is to increase the number of small businesses that currently export. The national target set by the government is for 100,000 more businesses exporting over the next 5 years.
This would increase the number of UK manufacturers that export from 20% to 25%, and add to the UK economy an estimated 36 billion.
UK businesses can see an increase in up to 34% of productivity when they start exporting, so if you have the opportunity to export it s a no-brainer!
Small businesses might be daunted by the prospect of exporting from the UK, however, it is becoming increasingly more evident that smaller businesses can also win international business.
Of course, larger firms may already have trained staff in exporting their goods, and may even have dedicated staff for this purpose.
Smaller firms need not fear; this is where a freight forwarder can step in. By appointing a freight forwarder to handle their export shipment, the whole process can be taken care of. By appointing an experienced freight forwarder (such as Mercator Cargo) the weight can be lifted off your shoulders and you can be safe in the knowledge that your cargo is in expert hands.
Mercator Cargo is an independent freight forwarder who prides itself on offering a personal service. With a team of experienced freight forwarders at hand, we can offer a hand holding service if needs be, and can offer advice at every step along the way.

Ricky’s Fish TacosPhoto: Tatiana Arbogast
Great news for taco-devotees missing Ricky Pi a’s Baja fish, shrimp, and lobster tacos following his forced removal1 from the Silver Lake space he long occupied. Eater reports that Pi a’s Ricky’s Fish Tacos2 is hitting the road in his own truck, tricking out a catering vehicle to serve a greater swath of the city. Despite extreme popularity, Ricky’s has been operating under-the-radar for years, despite regular rumors he could be opening a brick-and-mortar that never seem to materialize. Hopefully, this news that Pi a is turning trucker portends the survival of his business and the availability of his excellent seafood tacos for years to come. Until we know for sure, you can find the taquero in the parking lot at Chinatown’s LAX-C store on weekends3. 4]
