The Daily Dash: USPS cuts delivery deal; hair testing dispute

The Daily Dash is a quick look at what is happening in the freight ecosystem. In today’s edition, the U.S. Postal Service has cut a deal to ensure parcels will be delivered this holiday season. Plus, despite a push to allow hair testing for drugs, some carriers believe a proposed rule that would authorize it would weaken the effectiveness of the Drug and Alcohol Clearinghouse, and Workhorse Group blames COVID-19 for not hitting production targets.

Hair testing concerns

The trucking industry has been clamoring for the government to allow hair testing for drugs, but a new proposed rule to do that could weaken the effectiveness of the Drug and Alcohol Clearinghouse, some say.

John Gallagher explains what has them concerned: Carriers warn feds’ hair-testing plan may undercut drug clearinghouse
