Hours of Services – Changes

Trucking companies are driven by how much we can do and how much time we can do it in. Hours of service is our link to humanity. Until the day comes that machines can do it autonomously, the buck stops with us.

Trucking companies are driven by how much we can do and how much time we can do it in. Hours of service is our link to humanity. Until the day comes that machines can do it autonomously, the buck stops with us.

They say the city never sleeps – well, neither does the trucking and transportation industry. Sometimes the best time to be in a truck is when everyone else is asleep.

Hours of Service, both on the road and in the office, can vary among companies and regions. However, in a world that is ever-changing, a small business owner should be keeping tabs on what is expected in their market and how to compensate their employees for those hours worked.

Here’s what to look out for:
