The Daily Dash: Shippers want 14-hour clock change; driver shortage still the top industry concern

The Daily Dash is a quick look at what is happening in the freight ecosystem. In today’s edition, a group of large shippers is pushing the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration to implement a pilot program allowing truck drivers to pause their 14-hour workday clock. Plus, the driver shortage once again tops the American Transportation Research Institute’s Critical Issues in the Trucking Industry survey, and UPS posts better-than-expected earnings results.
