The Daily Dash: OOIDA backs HOS changes; peak season opportunity for regional carriers

The Daily Dash is a quick look at what is happening in the freight ecosystem. In today’s edition, a lawsuit from the Teamsters and safety groups opposing the recent changes to hours-of-service rules will not have the support of the Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association. Plus, regional carriers are poised to gain as FedEx and UPS shed freight volumes and what are equipment ordering cycles telling us about 2020 and beyond?

OOIDA supports HOS changes

The Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association (OOIDA) and Teamsters are often in tune with each other, but not this time. OOIDA has split from the Teamsters and is supporting FMCSA’s hours-of-service changes.

Frightful season ahead

As FedEx and UPS boost surcharges for the peak parcel season and tell some shippers to find other capacity solutions, regional carriers are poised to gain. But will they be ready?

2018 all over again?

Tender rejections remain near all-time highs and fleets are ordering equipment again. But unlike 2018, this equipment splurge may not create an overcapacity issue.

Border closures extended

The U.S., Canada and Mexico announced a continuation of nonessential border closures between the countries through Nov. 21.
