Weigh Station Woes Weigh Station Woes Part of every day’s work for truck drivers is entering, and hopefully, exiting weigh stations. Slowing down and crawling through a weigh station costs you money in fuel and time lost. Time is never on the side of carriers hauling freight. Pickups and deliveries are ever on stricter time […]
The benefits of the ELD are far reaching. For instance, drivers are required to take regular breaks and sleeper times. No longer being pressured to deliver at all costs, their stress levels drop to more manageable levels. And rested drivers are more likely to be safer drivers.
