Title DOT Launches Review of Delays at the Docks
Date Posted 6/29/2016
Description The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has begun an audit to collect data on the loading and unloading delays that carriers experience at the shipping docks and to assess the impact of those delays on the efficiency of the freight transportation system. The DOT Office of the Inspector General study attempts to determine the effect of detention time on hours of service compliance and safety outcomes. In the new highway bill, the FAST Act, Congress directed FMCSA to look into trucking concerns such as the impact of delays on driver safety and productivity.
