The Daily Dash: Trailer emissions regs delayed; TuSimple adds ex-FMCSA acting administrator

The Daily Dash is a quick look at what is happening in the freight ecosystem. In today’s edition, trailer manufacturers won a key court battle this week that will delay emissions compliance regulations that could have added thousands to the cost of a new trailer. Plus, TuSimple adds a legal heavyweight to its executive team, and between barbs Trump and Biden managed to discuss electric vehicles.

A U.S. Court of Appeals has put on hold compliance with new emissions regulations for trailers. The rules were scheduled to go into effect in January.

While the first presidential debate Tuesday night had plenty of fireworks, the two candidates did manage to sneak in some policy points. One area they addressed was climate change and electric vehicles.
