Editor’s Note / sMpwdkI
hen Benjamin Franklin first wrote, “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure,” nobody really understood the meaning of these words. Today, his words hold true more than ever, in almost every aspect of life. Whether it’s staying healthy and active, hiring a new employee, or maintaining your vehicles, it’s better to be cautious than pay the price afterwards. I remember when I was younger, that I would run my car dry until the gas needle almost broke off. Many-a-times, that would mean me stuck on the side of the road waiting for a tow truck or friend to bring me some gasoline. Nowadays, I am much more cautious. Let me make a point clear – no owner operator should sidestep any maintenance issues in his or her truck! There is just too much at stake. In terms of safety, if time or money is a concern, think about what can happen if the truck you’re driving causes an accident because of your negligence in maintenance. The price then would be much much higher. The other aspect is downtime and loss of income. With higher prices in everything except wages, no owner operator can afford downtime. In this issue, Ray Gompf looks at the basics in proper maintenance for your truck and trust me, it’s worth the read. In this issue, you’ll find many other great articles, views, and news articles, so read it from beginning to end. We always appreciate your feedback so keep it coming. Until next time, safe trucking and safe driving. jdoN bYNjwimn PRYNkiln ny iliKAw sI “An Ounce of Prevention is Worth a Pound of Cure” Bwv ielwj nwLoN pRhyz PwiedymMd rihMdw hY[ aus smyN iksy ny vI ienHW SbdW nUM cMgI qrHW smJx dI koiSS nhIN kIqI[ pr swnUM sB nUM pqw hY , hux aunHW dy ieh Sbd, qknIk dy Xùg ‘c ikMnI mh`qqw r`Kdy hn[ ieh ie`k nhIN sgoN hr ie`k Kyqr ‘c lwgU hY[ ieh BwvyN ishqmMd rihx sbMDI hox jW hovy nvW krmcwrI r`Kx dw PYslw jW iPr hovy quhwfI vhIkl dI sWB sMBwl[ bwAd ‘c BwrI kImq dyx dI QW pihlW hI cOksI r`Kxw TIk rihMdw hY[mYnUM Xwd hY ik jdoN myrI aumr QoVHI sI, qW mYN AwpxI kwr audoN q`k KVHI nhIN sI krdw jdoN q`k gYs mùk ky auh Awpxy Awp KVHI nhIN sI ho jWdI[ ies qrHW keI vwr mYnUM sVk dy kMFy KVHn leI mzbur hoxw pYNdw sI Aqy aufIkxw pYNdw sI toA tr`k nUM[ jW mdd krwaux leI iksy im`qr nUM[ pr hux g`l ies qoN iblkùl ault hY, mYN hux fRweIivMg smyN bhuq swvDwnI vrqdw hW[ mYN ie`k g`l swP krnI cwhuMdw hW-iksy vI Enr Awprytr nUM tr`k dy iksy murMmq dy kMm nUM A`KoN pRoKy nhIN krnw cwhIdw[nhIN qW ies kwrn kwPI nukswn vI ho skdw hY[ ij`QoN q`k g`l hY sur`iKAw dI jy g`l smyN jW pYsy dI hY , aus smyN ieh soco ik jy ikDry auh tr`k jo qusIN clw rhy ho Aqy quhwfI murMmq krwaux dI AxgihlI kwrn aus dw AYksIfYNt ho igAw qW iPr kI Pwiedw hovygw[ iPr qW aus dw Krcw vI murMmq nwLoN ikDry v`D hovygw[dUjy bMny smyN dI brbwdI Aqy Awmdn ‘c kswrw[ qnKwh qoN ibnw hor iksy kMm ‘c vwDU Krcy jW smyN dI brbwdI nUMU koeI vI Enr Awprytr sihn nhIN kr skdw[ ies AMk ‘c ryA gONP v`loN ienHW hI mùFlIAW murMmqW sbMDI g`l kIqI hY[ mYN XkIn nwL kih skdw hW Aqy myry ‘qy zkIn vI krnw ik ies lyK nUM pVHn nwL quhwnUM bhuq kùJ pqw l`g skdw hY Aqy aus ‘qy Aml krn nwL Pwiedw vI ho skdw hY[ ieh hI nhIN ies AMk ‘c quhwnUM hor vI bhuq vDIAw lyK pVHn nUM imlxgy[ ies leI ies nUM ie`k isry qoN lY ky dujy isry q`k swry dw swrw pVHo[ swnUM Awpxy ivcwr vI zrUr Byjo , ijs dw AsIN sdw hI DMnvwd krdy hW[ tr`kW nUM sur`iKAq FMg nwL clwE [ ies ‘c quhwfw Aqy horW dw Blw hY[

Maintenance Tips for the Owner Operator
o matter the jurisdiction or conditions, trucks inspector. With proper maintenance done at regular inspections, out of are expected to be preforming at maximum efficiency at all times. We are able to service orders should never happen. The best way to ensure maximum efficiency by regular avoid out of service orders is to ensure you know exactly what the various inspectors along the way are going to maintenance and regular inspections to be aware of potential problems before they become an examine closely. We all make sure the oil is changed at regular intervals issue that could put our vehicles out of service. Being placed out of service is beyond just to protect the engine. We all grease the appropriate inconvenience. It means we have to have repairs effected places on our trucks because, after all, a few dollars of grease saves the replacement of parts and pieces worth in places we may not have chosen, under the gun, and at the mercy of the repair facility and the authoritarian who hundreds, even thousands of dollars. Also, applying grease where needed allows us that opportunity to has placed us out of service. It also means thereâ€™s a record G. Ray Gompf against your CVOR that pops out at the next government inspect those expensive parts and pieces to which we 8

may only give a cursory glance during our daily inspections. Daily inspections, even though they are mandatory and require proof the inspection has been completed, not doing the inspection thoroughly should never be an option. The daily inspection gives you a methodology for ensuring your vehicle gets you home safely rather than giving you an unexpected and costly surprise along the way. Lights, belts and hoses can give you the most minor problems along the way. Carry with you a few extra lights of the various types that may fail between inspections. Change all drive belts at regular intervals, even if there is little wear. As you remove a fully functioning drive belt and replace it with a new one, put the decent one you’ve just removed into your jockey box, then throw away the belt you had in your jockey box for that “just in case” moment. Twice a year, make sure all your hoses are buffered where there’s any sign of rubbing or chafing. Take an unused length of hose about the same diameter as the hose you’re going to protect. Slice that four or five-inch piece of hose lengthwise, and wrap it around the hose that has been, or could become, chafed or is rubbing against a neighbouring hose. Then, with tie straps, first ensure the protector piece of hose is secured in place. Next, tie another strap to bind the two or three hoses that could rub together so there’s absolutely no chance of these hoses chafing when they were loose and vibrating together. There’s probably fifty or more chances from bumper to tail light for hoses to rub and become chafed. Inspectors often aren’t so intent on finding issues when it’s obvious you’ve taken care to ward off problems with hoses. Checking the hoses and ensuring they’re properly secured should be done twice a year, although during the daily inspection, your giving those points an eye just as the belts and lights are given
the eye daily. Always watch for wear but frankly, keeping them regularly changed, you tend not to see much wear. Tires is another inspection item for daily inspection. Examine all tires closely and look for wear factors. Tires will tell you quickly if there’s a problem, which, most of the time, is improper air pressure. Tires can also give you a good indication of any alignment issues. As we know, our trucks must be fit for the road at all times but many times, we run on roads that aren’t fit for our vehicle and often cause wear on parts and pieces that are undue. Along with tires, their fastening devices are of critical importance. Use only fastening nuts that haven’t been thread stretched by over torquing. Also, whenever a wheel is removed and replaced, make sure you know the stud hasn’t been thread stretched. For your own satisfaction, carry, as part of your toolbox, a spare lug stud that has never been used. Check the studs on each wheel before the wheel is replaced by placing this new stud thread by thread. If the new stud doesn’t perfectly fit the entire length of the stud on the wheel, then it’s been stretched and is no longer serviceable and it should be replaced forthwith. Never ever allow an installer to dry fit lug nuts. They must be installed with a drop of oil on the stud. Most installers will do this as a matter of course, while some others may try to convince you that you don’t know anything and will want to try dry fit them. Don’t let them! When your wheels are being replaced, make sure they are not over torqued with an air wrench. The proper procedure is to use the air wrench just to the point the nut is set. Then, using a torque wrench, the nut is tightened to specified torque. The torque wrench should have a turn or two before reaching specified torque. If the torque wrench indicates instantly the nut is torqued, it means it’s been over torqued. If the stud and nut have been over torqued, insist

on both being replaced. The wheels and tires are the only connection you have to the road and you want to be properly connected to the road. It’s not just your safety involved here; it’s everyone around you whose safety is at stake. There isn’t a court around that will accept that you weren’t aware. Even if you aren’t, you must be aware because it’s your neck on the line. Inspection of the braking system is essential. We all know that all we have to sell are the miles we can move freight, but it is even more critical to be able to stop when we must. Twice a year, remove the wheel sets and check the brakes, rebuilding if and as required. On a daily basis, ensure the brakes are properly adjusted. Exhaust systems are also critical, mostly to ensure poisonous gases don’t get into the cab. Examine the exhaust system, paying particular attention to joints where the most failure will occur. Any signs of rust or corrosion must be properly assessed and corrected if inspection determines repair or replacement. Suspension system is one of authoritarian inspector’s favourite

places to find an issue. When examining leaf springs, ensure there are no cracks, and that all hangers and connections are in place and working efficiently. If there is anything, and I mean anything not absolutely correct, then get it fixed before working this truck. For the air ride, make sure none of the airbags have any rubbing or chafing marks, which are signs of impending problems that could result in a catastrophe. Finally, don’t forget to examine the drive line. Ensure U-joints are changed regularly before they experience failure. Ensure driveshaft hangers are working well, with no cracks, and proper attachment to the truck. If you do proper inspections twice a year, which could take two days in the making, and couple them with the semi-annual inspection with the required dailies, you’ll very rarely have an issue anywhere with any scaler in the world. Oh, and take a few minutes during the summer to chain up at least once. Make sure that come winter when chaining is necessary, that not only you know how but that the chains are in good order.

they will hold on to the existing used equipment and this causes a used equipment shortage as well. If you do manage to find something used, it’s best to again be prepared before going to go look at it. Have cash or a cheque ready. With shortages there is high demand and once you look at a piece of equipment, there is sure to be someone who is going to look right after you

too. Be ready with a down payment, or the next person looking may come in just after you and buy it. Being unprepared will get you nothing. Right now there are some manufacturers with a one year wait or more. That can be frustrating. My theory is that the last few years in trucking have been slow. No one was buying and hence the manufacturers slowed their production supply for the low demand. Now that trucking is busy again, the demand has gone up and the equipment supply cannot meet the demand. Many manufacturers also use the same components such as suspension systems, causing a back up with the parts manufacturers as well. Whatever the reason, there is a wait, so prepare yourself to wait and be patient and keep your chequebook ready in case you do find something. I prefer to custom build the equipment I finance, so presnt equipment demands provide for that opportunity. Build it from scratch and make it EXACTLY what you want. Electronic logbooks or Elogs has created high equipment demand and a shortage of drivers. Different transport rates are being charged due to the changes, as well as longer wait times for delivery as drivers in the United States cannot drive for more than eleven consecutive hours. The demand for drivers and equipment continues as trucking firms try to put another driver on a load as soon as the hours of the first driver expire. New drivers are needed so trucks don’t remain idle and new equipment is needed for the new driver’s. Adding new drivers and training adds significant costs as well as higher costs due to more equipment requirement needs. If you are lucky enough to have enough equipment and drivers on the road, you are a minority. If you are struggling to find equipment, the only thing I can say is order it and wait and be patient. Your turn will come and future planning can help prevent future long waits.

Horsepower vs. Torque That Is The Question
have been in the truck sales business for 40 years and have seen many changes as the industry progresses. I have seen mileage expectations go from three miles to the gallon to approaching ten miles per gallon. I have seen fuel prices rise at incredibly fast rates, putting unbelievable pressure on your bottom line. Trucks have gotten lighter, faster, safer and of course, incredibly more expensive. Not to mention the amount of Federal and State regulation as well as Environmental Regulations and restrictions.
One topic of discussion that has been constant is the question of performance. What is key – horsepower or torque? We know that power, speed and on-time delivery are the desire. At the end of the day, we want on-time deliveries, happy customers and a profitable business. What are the best driveline considerations that will help us reach our mutual goals? There has been an incredible evolution of trucks over the years. We are getting power and torque out of small displacement engines we never thought possible. Design, materials, electronic and telematics have totally changed the game compared to what my dad thought was normal. 24
JULY - AUGUST 2018
As with most things in life, we learn from our predecessors and strive to honor our legacy and improve the “business model” as we learn how to operate more efficiently and profitably. When I was young, it was all about HORSEPOWER, and of course, the bigger the better. We wanted big power, as many forward gears as possible, big fuel tanks and a heavy foot. At $1.27 per gallon, it was okay to carry 300 gallons of fuel (2,100 lbs.) and drive as fast as we could get away with. Boy, those were the days and life was simple. Today, things are a little more complicated. We need to be as efficient as possible, while never losing sight of our goal, on-time deliveries, happy customers and a profitable business. The question remains…what is better? Horsepower, torque or a combination that is best for a company? Let’s look at the definition of both and how to apply it to our fleet operations. Horsepower is the measurement of effort as calculated in an algebraic formula. Torque is the measurement of twisting effort, or the force applied to the crank shaft and ultimately to the drive tires. The twisting effort (or torque) is the force that moves the load and pulls the hills. One question you may ask is, is 500 horsepower and 1650-foot lbs. better than 455 horsepower and 1650-foot lbs. of torque? If you look at major fleets that run the 48 states and operate thousands of tractors you will find the engines of choice are 450-455 horsepower and 1650-foot lbs. of torque. Why? These fleets are companies that analyze their cost of operations to 1/1000th of a penny per mile. A 10th of a mile per gallon can affect their bottom line by hundreds of thousands of dollars per month. The drive trains they choose are the most efficient, most productive, and most cost effective available today. Here a few reasons why. Today, we need to weigh cost versus reward. If we pay for our costs, what is the return, and how long does it take to get your return on investment? What is the most efficient costeffective way to move the freight and make our deliveries on time and at the lowest cost per mile? If we choose to go with higher horsepower, what is our true cost and return on investment. Let’s look at the cost differential. Not only the up-front cost of the equipment, but the running cost to operate the equipment. A high horsepower engine will have David Bockelman these upfront costs; • More expensive engine
• More expensive transmission have a boat load of options and components to consider, from • More expensive clutch telematics to automated and fully automatic transmissions. There • More expensive drivelines are also 10, 13, 15, 18-speed manual transmissions with a variety • More expensive drive axles of engine and horsepower and torque options available. Time • More expensive extended warranties marches on and new ideas and concepts will always appear before • More expensive parts and service for repairs and maintenance you. It can be quite intimidating to choose the right way to go, but It is a given that high horsepower allows one to drive faster it does not have to be. When it comes to engine power for your and sustain high speeds. But is it worth the cost? It takes more fleet, look around you. Follow the leader. At the end of the day, horsepower to overcome wind resistance than rolling resistance, think about torque more than horsepower. Take a tip from some of so it stands to reason and is documented that high speed consumes North America’s most well-run and efficient companies and make fuel. Is the extra fuel consumption worth the time saved? Probably more money for your own company! not! Why do North America’s top trucking companies order under 460 horsepower and 1650-foot lbs. of torque on their truck orders over 90% of the time? Because these companies are some of the most well-run businesses in the country. They know their true cost of operation and are focused on being as profitable as possible for their shareholders or family members; this is all the while keeping the goal of ontime deliveries and happy customers at the forefront of day-to-day operations. Most trucks on the highway are 450-455 horsepower with 10-speed transmissions. This huge population of engines and transmission creates other benefits as well. Across the country there are vast resources to support your fleet as you cross the country. Parts, service centers, mobile service Incorporation Registration IFTA Registration trucks, re-manufactured IRP Registration & Revenue C.V.O.R. Registration components and used parts are U.S. D.O.T. & MC Registration C-TPAT Drug Testing readily available to keep you Canada Customs & US Customs Bond on the road when you need service support to keep your trucks rolling and revenue coming in. Fuel savings as a part of lower cost of operation are clearly documented versus the high horsepower option. Yes, there are applications where large displacement Bay 6-9, 2456, 7050 Telford Way, Unit 13, engines and high horsepower 23 Ave. NE, Calgary, AB Mississauga, ON L5S 1V7 are required. However, in your typical over-the-road line haul applications, the industry has proven the best way to go by Fax: 403-455-4261 Fax: 905-696-6825 shear numbers. ..................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

Thursday, June 21st 2018, Bolton, ON – Total opened its first Total Rubia Truck Centre in North America. It is near the brand new Canadian Tire Warehouse location and at the corner of a high-traffic road. This area will see about a thousand trucks a day and therefore makes this new Total Rubia Truck Centre a prime location. The particularity of this Truck Centre is its long bay that can service trucks inand-out, meaning that trucks do not have to disconnect thus saving valuable time. This Truck Centre services fleets and owner-operators and its objective is do rapid oil changes in 15 to 20 minutes as well as provide great service. Due to its length and the two doors at each end, it can also service two trucks at a time. The truck driver can either relax in their drivers lounge area or enjoy some TV from the comfort of his driver’s seat. June
21st marks the Open House of the Total Rubia Truck Centre and all the people from the industry were invited to come and enjoy a BBQ, door prizes and grand prizes were offered during this event. You could also enjoy a 50% oil changes with Total Rubia engine oils and more discounts in the TRP store of the same location. “Our objective is to provide rapid oil changes and great service across Canada in all future Total Rubia Truck Centre. Today we saw a truck here, all the way from Alberta, it goes to show how important a Total Rubia Truck Centre network from East to West is important. Our objective is to open 50 Total locations to service the people in the trucking industry but also passenger’s cars. ‘’ said Franck Bagouet, President of Total Canada.
Works over 150 locations across Canada.
Whether you have a small or medium fleet, your company is eligible.

Autonomous Trucks Will They Ever be Truly Driverless?
which they are totally unaware. More often than not, these wreck here’s a lot of discussion going on whether or not causers not only aren’t aware of the carnage they’ve caused, but trucks will ever be truly driverless. Certainly, the many don’t even remain at the scene. And in their minds, why technology exists for trucks to function in some should they stay and face the music because none of the paint on situations as robots. The question is, will the roads, or the industry, be any safer? Proponents their vehicle was touched. In driving situations, there are often small non-commercial claim it will happen, while opponents claim it won’t make a bit vehicles cutting in front so close, the human driver can’t see them, of difference and could actually make things less safe. which won’t be the case with the computer.

isn’t an alternate to even consider, but those are rare for sure. Unless and until every vehicle on every road, in every conceivable condition, is 100% computer controlled and all doing exactly the same speed, mixed highway usage would be dangerous and irresponsible. Even allowing some vehicles to be partially autonomous operating amongst non-autonomous vehicles isn’t conducive to safe operation. Even computers cannot be perfect in every conceivable situation because they were created by man. Man-made products can and do fail and while failure may not happen on a regular basis, the possibility of failure exists constantly. Why else would governments require vehicle inspections every two hours?
Apparently, those powers that be are talking about full autonomous commercial vehicles the norm fifteen years hence. The fly in their ointment may well be from the legal/insurance community insisting on having a human to blame when something goes amiss and the surety of something going amiss is absolute. The other segment to undoubtedly oppose full autonomy is the general public. As with the airline passenger industry, the general public would not allow fully autonomous airplanes. It’s just not going to happen, yet, in my opinion. In the same manner, the general public would have as many second thoughts of driving their personal car in close proximity to a fully autonomous truck, as truck drivers have of driving in close proximity to unskilled general public drivers today. Will technology take over many of the highly skilled driver’s tasks? Will technology ever be allowed to totally replace the human factor? Probably not. Today’s driver may change titles,

but there will always be a human in charge of autonomous trucks. Who else would be doing the such mundane tasks as the regular every two-hour vehicle inspections, ensuring load security, inspections to prevent such horrific events as a wheel-off? Who’s going to be available to load and unload? Who’s going to be available to connect truck and trailer, ensuring all is in good working order? All those tasks for which truck drivers don’t get paid to do but are required by government regulations? The rhetoric has been building from the key players to demonstrate clearly there is a driver shortage. This is posturing for justification. If there were a serious driver shortage, if there was such a capacity shortage that would be a detriment to commerce, then carriers would be treating their drivers like gold, paying them for all they do, not just the minimalist pay based on productivity. Yes, drivers, for the most part are paid only by the mile, yet there are a multitude of tasks that are absolutely necessary with absolutely no pay. A pre-trip inspection, required by regulation involves a minimum of a half hour before the driving shift begins; every two hours, a regulation requirement involves a fifteen-minute inspection. Plus, at the end of the shift, another half hour inspection — the better part of two hours daily of unpaid work. None of this unpaid labour will be carried out by a fully autonomous truck. Each of these inspections require the signature of the driver, not someone remote from the vehicle, not some faceless maintenance person who might be tasked to do pre-trip inspections. Inspections on the road by government officials like to have the responsible party in front of them when they find faults with commercial vehicles. This would not be possible with an autonomous truck. While regulations may be rewritten to comply with changes to the way the trucking business is done, there would have to be a complete set of regulations rewritten specifically to handle the autonomous truck usage. At the same time, a whole different set of regulations for non-autonomous trucks would make for rules and regulations that no human could or would understand. The government must leave a human inside any truck despite having the ability for the truck to almost do the task. Almost is never going to be totally. Remember, anything man-made is going to fail at some point in time. Therefore, a human being must always be available to solve the failure before it becomes a catastrophe.

Personal Conveyance Clarified In The Age Of ELD’s
fter promising to listen to truck drivers and consider their issues going forward, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration for the first time in 20 years issued new guidance regarding personal conveyance designed to clarify the situations under which it can be used.
Personal conveyance of the commercial motor vehicle is an off-duty status and therefore, doesn’t impact 11- or 14-hour limitations for truck drivers, the 60/70-hour limitations or the 34hour restart. The subject has long been a source of confusion, but now that electronic logging devices are mandated it’s even trickier since all movement of the commercial vehicle must be exactly accounted for. “This change in guidance for personal conveyance likely comes from the many scenarios which have played out where a driver is parked for the night and is asked to move their CMV 20 feet away or is asked to leave the property of the shipper, or simply just ran out of time to find a safe place to park. This new development makes life easier not only for drivers, but shippers as well. Before the FMCSA loosened the rule, shippers were in an awkward spot: since many of them don’t have sufficient parking at their stores and warehouses, they often had trucks Expansion Tank Volvo 08-15, OE# 21846997, RTVO103 $299.00 parked onsite who had run out of Expansion Tank Kenworth 08-15, OE# N53446001, RTKE101 $279.00 legal hours but couldn’t use their trucks for personal conveyance so stayed put for a rest. But, shippers couldn’t order them off their property without risking a possible fine or investigation under the driver coercion rule. Now that drivers have more flexibility, it will ease congestion at distribution centers,” said Oswaldo Flores, product manager for Teletrac Navman, a fleet management solutions provider. “These type of changes are welcome from the industry and shows a goodwill to the carriers and drivers concerns from the FMCSA. I think what is key here is the willingness from the FCMSA to flex the recent mandate regulations and adjust accordingly to the real world impact as they play out in the field. It’s also significant that the FMCSA adapted a rule that had long vexed truckers, which may signal their willingness to be flexible and attentive to drivers’ www.chtp.ca viewpoints going forward and re-

consider measures that would make their jobs easier,” Flores added. After asking for input last year, the Agency received nearly 400 comments from industry stakeholders indicating that much of the stress concerning hours of service results from delays in loading and unloading, putting drivers over their number of allowed working hours. New guidance says the movement from a shipper or receiver to the nearest safe resting area may be identified as personal conveyance, regardless of whether the driver exhausted his or her HOS, as long as the CMV is being moved solely to enable the driver to obtain the required rest at a safe location. The agency also said if a federal, state or local law enforcement official requires the driver to relocate the CMV during the 10hour break period, it “does not require a restart of the rest period”,
however “the CMV must be moved no farther than the nearest reasonable and safe area to complete the rest period.” However, carrier’s are not required to allow personal conveyance and FMCSA recommends they have a clear policy regarding the issue in place. Also, drivers must be off-duty and relieved of any work responsibilities in order for it to be considered personal conveyance.

Combating Corrosion MANAGE THE WESTERN RUN
The Ongoing Battle To Extend Trailer Life
ut on the road, regular trailer wear and tear is expected. But these seemingly cosmetic blemishes can invite a huge threat to your trailer’s structural integrity – corrosion. Even if you don’t’ have to deal with treacherous winter weather, you’re still susceptible to trailer corrosion. Road dirt and debris strikes will damage the coatings of the underside of the trailer. Dirt that collects on wellpainted surfaces can remain wet, causing corrosion. Additionally, moisture from rainwater and condensation on the inside of the trailer can contribute to corrosion. Basically, if there’s water on the trailer, corrosion can happen. However, there are precautions you can take to ensure that your trailer’s life isn’t cut short. The most important thing you can do to protect your trailers is regularly wash them per the manufacturers’ recommendations. But don’t go overboard – improper powerwashing a trailer can do just as much harm as 36

good. Sidewall seams should be not be blasted directly because that can push dirt and road chemicals into the seams. Be sure to give your trailer a good inspection before washing it, as heavy impacts to the upper half of the trailer can cause leaks. In addition to keeping your trailers clean, regular inspections will keep them in shape. If you notice a mark on your trailer that is beginning to corrode, the first things you should do is consult your manufacturer’s trailer repair recommendations. If those are unavailable, Great Dane recommends the following: 1. Clean the area in question by wirebrushing or sand-blasting the corrosion. 2. Prime the area and paint to slow the rate of corrosion. Though these instructions seem simple, it’s important to take care of corrosion as soon as it appears to ensure a long service life of your trailer. Credit: Great Dane Trailers

Government Of Canada To Provide $2.8 Million In Funding To Trucking HR Canada
atty Hajdu, Minister of Employment, Workforce Development and Labour, announced funding of $2.8 million to Trucking HR Canada today. The funding is through the Government of Canada’s Sectoral Initiatives Program (SIP), to develop the sectoral labor market information needed to shape the industry for the future. The project supports the SIP’s goal to address current and future skills shortages by supporting the development
and distribution of sector-specific labor market information. The project will develop bilingual innovative tools to help employers to recruit and retain employees from untapped labor pools, such as women, Indigenous people, people with disabilities, visible minorities, veterans/transitioning military personnel and youth. “Economies are changing around the world, and that presents opportunities that we need to seize in Canada,” Hajdu said. “Workers, employers and post-secondary education institutions need knowledge and information in order

to shape the future of the trucking and logistics industry, and this project by Trucking HR Canada will help them do just that.” For this project, Trucking HR Canada has partnered with the Canadian Trucking Alliance. The seven provincial trucking associations (Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Ontario, Quebec and the Atlantic provinces) have also confirmed their support and commitment to the project. Engagement and consultation activities will be held across the country to ensure a national representation of the industry. “The trucking and logistics industry is rapidly changing. A strong economic outlook, low unemployment rates, workforce shortages and technological change are all impacting fleet operations across the country. This project will enable us to better quantify labor needs to inform the development of practical tools and resources that will support employers, as well as better connect job seekers to the numerous career opportunities the industry offers,” said Angela Splinter, CEO, Trucking Human Resources Canada. Sectoral labor market information reports will be released and made available online throughout the course of the project, which ends in summer 2021.

Volvo Plans For 2019 Sales Of Electric Commercial Trucks In Europe
ast Year Volvo Car Group announced starting in 2019 that it would no longer introduce passenger vehicle without an electric motor. It would, however, continue to make existing models that do not have electric
engines. Volvo Trucks is initially focusing its electric commercial vehicle development on local delivery and shorter distance applications. In those cases, no public charging infrastructure is needed because the trucks can return to a central terminal to recharge.
Volvo Trucks has drawn on expertise of another division of Volvo Group, sister company Volvo Buses. The company reports Volvo Buses has sold more than 4,000 electric buses since 2010. Volvo Trucks has begun production of two fully electric commercial vehicles for European markets in 2019, and dealers and media got a chance to see them and get behind the wheel of one of them June 20. The Volvo FL Electric has designed for urban distribution and refuse operations. Two 16-ton FL trucks were available for test drives, one with a delivery truck body and the other with refuse collecting equipment. Customers have been lined up for these first two trucks. Both are based in Gothenburg. Refuse collection and recycling company Renova will take delivery of the refuse hauling truck, and the delivery truck is going to transportation company TGM, which hauls for DB Schenker, a division of the German rail operator Deutsche Bahn AG that focuses on logistics. Volvo also has begun production of the FE Electric for 2019 44

sales in Europe. It is a heavier truck designed for city distribution and refuse transport operations. Germany’s second largest city, Hamburg, plans to start using the FE Electric refuse truck next year. Volvo’s focus is on Europe, for now. There are many hurdles to clear before bringing their electric commercial vehicles to North America, although there seem to be opportunities on the West Coast, said Magnus Koeck, Volvo Trucks North America vice president of marketing and brand management. Volvo does not think electric commercial vehicles are a passing fancy. Eventually, they will replace diesel vehicles, Koeck said. It is a matter of time. However, in the case of longhaul trucking, it is a matter of quite a bit of time due to the weight of the batteries needed, the distances to be traveled and lack of charging infrastructure. “For long-haul, for sure, it is going to take a long time,” Koeck said. The smaller FL Electric has a single electric motor with 185 kW maximum power, producing about 250 hp. It has continuous power of 130Kw (174 hp). It has a range up to about 124 miles. Range is variable depending on battery configuration. The heavier-duty FE has two motors producing a maximum 370 kW of power, or just over 500 hp. Continuous power is rated at 260kW (349 hp). It has a range up to 186 miles. The trucks can be equipped with up to six lithium-ion batteries. Each battery weighs about 1,100 pounds. Because of the weight, it is important to gauge need and use only what is needed. If a company relies on 10-hour overnight DC charging, very little in the way of charging equipment is needed. If a company has a shop with a welder, it already has pretty much what it needs. Fast AC charging, to help extend a work day, takes more equipment. Volvo emphasized how quiet, low-emission electric commercial vehicles are increasingly important as society becomes more urbanized. The quiet vehicles make night deliveries more feasible because they would not upset sleeping public. That could relieve traffic congestion during the day. Quieter commercial vehicles also would have less effect on property values on delivery routes.

Brake Safety Week Set For Sept. 16
he Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance has set Sept. 16-22 as Brake Safety Week. CVSA-certified enforcement personnel will conduct roadside inspections on commercial motor vehicles as part of Brake Safety Week in order to identify and remove CMVs with critical brake violations from the roadways and to highlight the dangers of faulty brake systems. According to the safety organization, properly functioning brake systems are crucial to safe CMV operation. Brakes must be routinely inspected and carefully and consistently maintained so they operate and perform to the manufacturer’s specifications throughout the life of the vehicle. Improperly installed or poorly maintained brake systems can reduce braking efficiency and pose serious risk to public safety, says CVSA.
CVSA cites the following data to back up their position: According to the U.S Department of Transportation’s Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s Large Truck Crash Causation Study, 32.7 percent of large trucks with precrash violations had brake problems. Brake-related violations comprised the largest percentage of out-of-service vehicle violations cited during last year’s International Roadcheck. The LTCC Study’s relative risk analysis indicated that large trucks involved in a crash where the braking capacity of the truck was critical were 50 percent more likely to have a brake violation than were trucks involved in crashes where the truck’s braking capacity was not critical. According to the LTCC Study, of the trucks involved in brake-critical crashes, 45.5 percent had brake violations, compared with 29.9 percent of trucks involved in crashes of the 46

same type where the braking was not relevant. Results from last year’s Brake Safety Day found that 14 percent of all inspections conducted during that one-day brake safety initiative resulted in a CMV being placed out of service for brake-related violations. In addition to inspections and enforcement, outreach efforts by law enforcement agencies to educate drivers, mechanics, owner-operators and others on the importance of proper brake maintenance, operation and performance are integral to the success of the safety initiative. During Brake Safety Week, inspectors will primarily conduct the North American Standard Level I Inspection, which is a 37-step procedure that includes an examination of driver operating requirements and vehicle mechanical fitness. Inspections conducted will include inspection of brake-system components to identify loose or missing parts; air or hydraulic fluid leaks; defective rotor conditions; measurement of pushrod travel; mismatched air chamber sizes across axles; air reservoir integrity and mounting; worn linings, pads, drums or rotors; required brake-system warning devices; and other brake-system components. Vehicles with defective or out-of-adjustment brakes will be placed out of service. In addition, in the 12 jurisdictions using performancebased brake testing equipment, vehicle braking efficiency will be measured. PBBTs measure the cumulative brake force for the entire vehicle and divide it by the total vehicle weight to determine overall vehicle braking efficiency. The minimum braking efficiency for trucks is 43.5 percent, required by 393.52 of the U.S. Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations and the CVSA North American Standard Out-of-Service Criteria. Brake Safety Week is part of the Operation Airbrake Program, sponsored by CVSA in partnership with the Canadian Council of Motor Transport Administrators and the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration.
