Next week, the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) is conducting a roadside inspection blitz of commercial motor vehicles to ensure safe operation. This year, the blitz is set for June 5-7 with a focus on hours-of-service compliance.
How does this impact me?
From June 5-7, an average of 17 trucks will be inspected every minute across North America. In years past, we’ve seen tighter capacity and rate increases up to 30% during these roadside inspections.
How can I avoid rate increases and capacity issues?
Increasing lead times between booking shipments and the actual pick-up of the shipment can significantly reduce your transportation costs. The best way to avoid disruptions or rate increases is to book shipments as early as possible.
Let me know if you need any additional information or guidance for next week.
