S. 1454, the Transportation and Logistics Hiring Reform Act
On Thursday, May 21st, Senator Deb Fischer
(R-NE) and Senator Roy Blunt (R-MO) introduced S. 1454, the
"Transportation and Logistics Hiring Reform Act", which would enhance
interstate commerce by creating a national hiring standard for motor
carriers. The bill serves as a vital reform measure on addressing the
confusing and conflicting vagaries created by the CSA scores within the
Are carriers continuing to double broker
your loads? Are they flipping a load, convenience sub-hauling, helping a
friend in need? These are other ways of saying, that a carrier is
illegally brokering freight under MAP-21.
Report illegal brokering
The national hiring standard would clarify and
standardize industry best practices for hiring safe motor carriers.
Currently, industry stakeholders are often asked to second-guess the
FMCSA on determining which carriers are safe to operate and those that
are not. The national hiring standard would remove the confusing and
conflicting vagaries of the BASIC data as it relates to the negligent
selection of a carrier.

Are you ready for the big changes set to come
within FMCSA? On Oct. 23rd, the URS will be implemented. The URS will
eliminate the MC, FF, and MX numbers within the DOT sytem and make the
USDOT number the sole identifier. Additionally, the URS will require
brokers to update their information on a biennial update.
TIA and the William Loveland College have announced an agreement to offer a new Masters of Business Administration (MBA) with a focus in logistics.
