Trucking Agency Seeks Input on Loading/ Unloading Times
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) issued a request for information last month to better understand driver detention times during the loading and unloading of commercial vehicles along with their impact on safety.
The request contains seven areas where FMCSA is looking for feedback, including topics such as what they should consider an estimate of reasonable loading and unloading times, as well as what potential actions they could take to help reduce loading, unloading, and delay times.
AmericanHort is in the process of gathering information to submit comments. Public comments on the notice may be submitted through September 9.
