NewsTruckingWHAT THE TRUCK?!?

We need to talk about truck parking

On today’s episode Dooner and The Dude are talking about the truck parking shortage in the United States of America. With one spot for every 11 drivers and the issues only getting worse, is there another way to approach this crisis? FreightWaves Editorial Director Rachel Premack has the scoop. 

Reshoring has become a buzzword during the shipping crisis, but is it happening and what resources are there for those looking to bring their goods back to North America? Jordan Dewart, president at Redwood Mexico, brings us to the border and back with the latest in the space.

Karan Kandhari, Chief Marketing Officer, Cargaison Logistics Express Pvt Ltd and Les Feldman, Senior V.P. Business Development at Cargo Solution Express share how shippers are looking for end-to-end solutions. 

Debon Sims Jr. came into the trucking industry with one goal in mind: to be his own boss. He shares his journey toward becoming a trucker and why the hardest job he has ever known is also the most satisfying. 

FreightCaviar’s Paul-Bernard Jaroslawski joins us at the desk to co-host, and we may even have a mystery stupid question from Boris Panov in Greece.

Plus, would you drive for Lot Lizard Express; truck vandalized; TuSimple truck crashes; and more.

  1. How about before another mega warehouse park is built, so much land has to be set aside for truck parking and at the very least provide port a potts.

    1. There are too too many comercial trucks
      on the road my friend way to many ,do your people don’t get it???
      Sikh’s, Pakistanis(muslims),hindoes, They are getting money and loans from the temples,mosques, with money from India and , from mosques, and they scruwing the whole business , all have there own truck and haul for a while for a big company and than go on their own so on so on , and the government and this OOIDA bullshit don’t come up for the own truckers and in canada is it already that White people ca company’s dont get freight from this kind of people and that has to stop , if not it will be an Wild West all over believe me

  2. Require all warehouses to provide one parking spot for each 2 delivery/ day for overnight parking and 30% of those spots have 20 Amp 110 volt plug with bathrooms and a TV room and wi fi if they get more than 10 delivery or pickup/ day

  3. As retired I liked stopping speding money in towns. But now that make parking impossible. Fueling made hard. Would think small town would love to sell 100 gal of fuel. Steak dinner shower room. But towns making it impossible to get off main road. Colo one of worst. Oh yes colo almost suburb of calf.
