Editor’s Note / sMpwdkI

Happy New Year!

Jag Dhatt

We have day, night, seasons, birth, death and in all of these, everything happens according to the laws of nature. Our world has made laws in order to make it a better place to live and be. Every country, every industry has its own laws and rules, including the trucking industry in which we are involved. Regardless of whether we like it or not, we all have to follow pre-set rules. We have to ensure that we understand and have knowledge of industry laws, regulations, and rules. If needed, it’s important to get the right information and training on these, so that we can do our jobs properly. After the training, it’s time to implement what you have learned into your day-to-day operations. Your life will become easier, hustle free, and you will undoubtedly achieve more success in your business. As Albert Einstein said, “You have to learn the rules of the game. And then you have to play better than anyone else.” Yes, if you play better, you will definitely be ahead of your competition. The opposite is also true: you can cheat, but this process will only cause you to have bigger problems. If you get caught breaking rules and laws, the costs can be heavy: from getting heavily fined to shutting down your operation – both of which I’m sure you wouldn’t choose. We wish you happy and successful New Year. God bless truckers…see you in the next issue.

What’s New for Trucks and Trailers in 2017


s the new year unfolds, there are those few specifically with special emphasis on the needs of the small prognosticators who seem to have their eyes business owner/operator trucker. The advent of a carbon tax in Canada is going to provide a firmly fixed on the future and know it all. The stimulus for alternative ways and means of powering vehicles. world seems to be full of those who can only Using common sense, taxing carbon is akin to taxing sleep, but see what is present and project the present as then I don’t want to give the sitting governments any ideas on the future. They protest, they scream, they yell, and they claim new revenue sources. Virtually everything we see, touch, hear, they see the future. But the reality is they don’t have a clue, any taste and smell is made of carbon, including the earth itself. We more than the rest of us. They insult the rest of us who struggle humans are carbon. So taxing carbon must make infinite sense with common sense progression and in so doing stymie the to money hungry governments. Taxing sanity, not so progression they say they’re promoting. much. Notwithstanding, the carbon tax is upon us OK, I’ll try to jump off the soap box and get to the subject at hand. I don’t have a crystal ball and can only and it’s going to cause a great deal of challenges and predict based on my common sense thinking and with solutions to minimize the effects of said carbon tax. some of the knowledge of what people are planning Will taxing carbon change the world? The jury is still out on that issue but I seriously have my doubts any to present in the immediate, short term and long term. perceived problem worthy of government “fixing” Believe me, I don’t know it all – I have no illusions about could be better solved with plain old common sense, my prognostication skills because they are nothing short which seems to be in short supply. of non-existent. One of the biggest newsmakers has been innovations I deal almost strictly in the transportation industry and G. Ray Gompf in trucks.

What’s new for trucks and trailers in 2017 drivetrain powered by high-density lithium batteries. Energy will be supplied on-the-go by a hydrogen fuel cell giving the Nikola One a range of 800 to 1,200 miles while delivering over 1,000 horsepower and 2,000 lb-ft of torque, which is nearly double that of any semi-truck on the road today. Never has a production model class 8 truck achieved best-in-class fuel efficiency while also dramatically improving performance over its diesel competition – all with zero-emissions. Nikola has a production model and will be delivering to customers in 2017. Can you imagine going up the Smasher or Fancy Gap and not even dropping a gear while grossed out at 80,000 with no fuel carbon footprint? Tax that! One of the selling points - and I’m not so sure it isn’t corporate hype - on the Autonomous Truck is that it will be much more fuel efficient than any human controlled truck, perhaps as much as ten percent better. While a ten percent efficiency improvement may well be even the low side of reality, will the Autonomous Truck simply be the VCR of the truck world to be replaced by a Bluetooth version before running out its life cycle? Moving on, Swift Transportation plans to begin equipping FlowBelow Aero Inc.’s Tractor AeroKit tandem axle aerodynamics package on its company trucks, with the initial deployment of the kits through 2017 expected to account for approximately 40% of the TL carrier’s company trucks. Again, these improvements in aero dynamics will only offer minuscule improvements in fuel efficiency as a result of drag, certainly the return on investment will offer a fairly short pay off. A new fairing design is also in the works that will completely close off the “gap”. The gap represents possibly 20% of the drag on the combination of a tractor and trailer. Fairings have lessened the drag to some degree. Products like EcoTabs have had significant effect on gap drag but this new fairing concept will eliminate gap drag.

While there are those studying and improving drag ratios that will improve fuel efficiency, there are engineers working furiously to improve the efficiency of the driveline itself. Engines are vastly improved in efficiency over the same engines of a mere decade ago. Smaller engines producing more horsepower – who knew! 10

We have moved to our new building in Delta

January - February 2017


What’s new for trucks and trailers in 2017 Alternative fuels are gaining ground but these are still mostly fossil fuels. Then there are the tried and true fossil fuels and those being supplemented with more sustainable fuels. The results however are still carbon releasing. Canada is one of the few counties in the world with vast forests, the carbon sinks of the world, to the point where we have the ability to naturally produce more oxygen than we create carbon. Moving to the roads themselves, there are new pavements having already been invented that will save 80% to the costs of building roads over the methodologies used today, yet provide a stronger more environmentally friendly, more fuel efficient surface over which tires can perform and even last much longer. The problem being that governments are slow to react to new methodologies and are prone to lobbying efforts of those who wish not to see improvements. This new pavement process will be decades away from common usage but eventually will happen. Efficiency is about to become the new buzz word. Efficiency at every level of the supply chain in the future will make us look extremely wasteful today. Communications will dramatically be different. Shippers will find the most efficient methodology of getting their goods to customers, rather than the efficient methodology of going looking for the shipper with product to move. This is going to be the most earth-shattering paradigm shift in thinking. Capacity and freight will be matched much more efficiently with better software and improved communications. XYpper. com is already a world leader in this approach. I believe the industry seems to have difficulty embracing new technology, sort of “why fix it, it isn’t broken” attitude. It’s apparent change will occur and the sooner one changes the faster one will benefit. It also seems that everything is coming at a faster pace than ever before so there is lots of confusion, misconception and hesitancy. The old tracking systems are based on CDMA technology which is fast approaching its end and will become obsolete sooner than anyone can imagine. All telco’s, in bed with the big solution providers, are scrambling to adopt the new GSM smart phone technology because they know CDMA will end but are not saying when as not to create a panic. It’s not a question of when, but rather it’s how and with whom. So, to sum my prognostications up for this year: • The industry will be staying the course on improving aerodynamics. Fairing improvements, side skirt improvement, and Eco-tab usage. • Improvements in fuel efficiency will continue. • Alternative fuels will gain usage to lessen the impact on fossil fuel dependency. • Drivelines will continue to be improved for efficiency. • Carbon tax will have significant effect on both the operating costs of transportation and the costs goods and services provided to all of us with no appreciable gains to humanity. • Urban center transportation services will utilize all-electric solutions for motive power. • Communications will continue to improve. • New and better pavement solutions will start to be seen. 12

Negative Equity the dealership is mad and so is the person doing the new finance. All have lost something due to someone else’s initial inefficiency. One trucker took over one of my trailer leases. He brought his wife along when signing. She told me that the previous person they had dealt with was dishonest and would not talk to her or her husband and she wanted to make sure that didn’t happen again. I asked what happened and they explained they had another trailer they were trying to sell. I asked for the year, make and model and knew the sale price range when they told me. They told me the payout of the loan and it was about 13,000 more than the value of that trailer. I asked if they were aware of this and that they would be taking a loss. This couple said that’s why they were so upset by the previous person that did their deal. He did their deal incorrectly and now they were in negative equity and would be taking a loss. That person does not return their calls and is extremely rude to the couple.

Cash back incentives or rolling in to longer terms will still leave you in negative equity. This is very common practice in the United States from car dealerships. They are taking in vehicles which already have negative equity as trades and giving them a new vehicle and adding the negative value to the new vehicle. The people are drawn in by cash back incentives and long terms of 72 months and longer. When looking at numbers and seeing all the new car sales it would appear the economy is doing great, when in reality it’s a big misconception. It’s putting people already in a negative equity situation in to an even worse negative equity situation. They go from owing more than the trade vehicle was worth, to owing even more on a new vehicle, and again more than the vehicle is worth. Their situation went from bad to worse. To avoid negative equity situations there are a few things you can do. One is know who you’re dealing with. If there are a lot of unhappy people who are taking losses that have all dealt with the same person, avoid that person. Know the values of what asset you are acquiring. Don’t over pay and look at the value of that asset as it ages. For example, a trailer generally goes down in value about 10% a year. If you 16

Negative Equity plan on using it for 3 years and know what a 3 year old trailer of that value sells for, you can plan your loan. You know that your loan needs to be less than that 3 year value. You can plan this with your lender. Shortening a term can help avoid negative equity. For example if you put zero down on a new truck but pay it off in 2 years, then negative equity may happen in the first few months, but will quickly dissipate as the asset is paid off rapidly. Too long a deal will lead to negative equity. Putting a down payment on an asset that equals its decrease in value is also a great way to ensure you are never in negative equity. So if buying a new trailer, put 10% down to equal the drop in value or 20-30% down on a new truck or car. This allows you to have a longer term and lower payment later, but you pay more up front at the beginning. Selling or trading your equipment or any assets should not add stress. If you want to sell something that has an existing lease or any type of loan on it, there should not be tension. If your deal was done correctly, your asset should be worth more than your loan payout and you will get a nice cheque or credit towards the sale of a new asset. If you do find yourself in a negative equity situation, be prepared to take a loss, to keep the asset until it’s paid off, or discuss your options with your financial advisor to see what can be done to alleviate the situation.

Wal-Mart Ordered to Pay $54 Million to California Truck Drivers

federal jury ordered Wal-Mart to pay more than $54 million to a group of truck drivers in California who claimed they weren’t paid the minimum wage for such tasks as inspecting their vehicles. On Nov. 23, a jury for the U.S. Court for the Northern District of California decided Wal-Mart failed to pay hundreds of its truck drivers at least minimum wage for pre- and post-trip inspections, 10-minute rest breaks and 10-hour layovers. The jury awarded the drivers in the class-action suit $44,699,766 for the layover time, $5,942,440 for the inspections and $3,961,975 for the rest breaks. The jury concluded Wal-Mart failed to pay class members minimum wage for 103,221 pay periods from Oct. 10, 2007 to Oct. 15, 2015. Truck drivers at Wal-Mart are paid by the mile, not by the hour. The lawsuit was originally filed in 2008. Wal-Mart has contended that its truck drivers are paid for inspections and that drivers aren’t working during layovers. Attorneys for the more than 800 drivers in the class-action lawsuit were seeking $72 million in damages. 18

Understanding Your Legal Obligations to Your Employees Who Drive

fRweIvr ijhVy quhwfy leI kMm krdy hn aunHW pRqI AwpxIAW kwnUMnI zuMmyvwrIAW nUM smJxw


nderstanding and complying with the regulations under which your company operates is fundamental to your business. Similarly, if you have employees who drive for work, there are specific road safety regulations you must understand and meet. They exist to help prevent workplace crashes and the human, financial and liability costs they incur. In many cases, the regulations were created to address circumstances that contributed to worker injuries and/or fatalities in the past. Regulations in BC The Workers Compensation Act and the Occupational Health and Safety Regulation apply to nearly all employers with employees working in BC. Depending on where you operate and the type of business you run, there are several provincial and federal laws that may apply to you. If you’re a carrier that drives across a provincial or U.S. border, the Canada Labour Code Part II and the Canada Occupational Health and Safety Regulations apply to your operations. To help you wade through the list of statutes and figure out which ones apply to you, Road Safety At Work has created a series of tools and resources as well as a free online course - Understanding Employer Road Safety Obligations. All are designed to provide employers with practical knowledge of relevant statutes, how they can comply with requirements, and where they can access resources to help build and implement necessary measures and actions. Participate in Road Safety At Work Week Even if you believe your managers and supervisors are meeting their obligations to your employees who drive for work, Road Safety at Work Week is the perfect time to test that belief. Who knows, you might find a gap or two and see opportunities to strengthen your practices and improve your results. In 2017, Road Safety at Work Week is March 6 -10. It’s a week set aside for BC workplaces to increase awareness about work26

Desi News related road safety. During the week, we encourage employers to commit to implementing safe driving policies and procedures for their workplace or to improving existing ones. “We hope employers, managers and supervisors will take advantage of the road safety resources available to them to improve their driving-for-work safety policies,” said Rick Walters, Fleet Safety manager, Road Safety At Work. “Being proactive about road safety is smart business and it saves lives.” Follow @RoadSafeAtWork and use #RSAWWeek to join the conversation on social media. Road Safety At Work is an occupational health and safety initiative managed by the Justice Institute of BC and funded by WorkSafeBC. Its mandate is to reduce the number of workplace motor-vehicle crashes, deaths and injuries in BC. As well as its website tools and resources, it offers free workshops and consulting services.

Wingman Advanced delivers both warning alerts to drivers and active interventions. The system provides following distance, impact and stationary object alerts, which are always available – whether or not cruise control is engaged. When drivers engage cruise control and set speed, the system will actively intervene to help them maintain a safe following distance behind a forward vehicle by reducing throttle; engaging the engine retarder; or, if necessary, applying the foundation brakes. According to Bendix, its driver assistance technologies are designed to complement safe drivers, safe driving practices, and proactive driver training programs, not replace them. Responsibility for the safe operation of the vehicle remains with the driver at all times.

Staying Safe in a Storm. Winter Survival Tips


perating a commercial motor vehicle during the winter months poses many challenges for the professional driver. One of these challenges is dealing with rapidly changing weather and road conditions. From icy roads to blinding blizzards, it is important for drivers to be prepared for whatever hazardous conditions they may face. Now is a good time to review some of the steps that drivers should take and issues they need to be aware of when it comes to staying safe during the winter months.

vehicle’s exhaust pipe is clear and free of snow. Retaining body heat is important to avoid hypothermia, a condition brought on when the body’s temperature drops to a dangerously low level. Symptoms of hypothermia include uncontrollable shivering, slow speech, memory lapses, and drowsiness. Ways to stay warm and prevent hypothermia include trying not to stay in one position too long, dressing in layers, and using any additional blankets and coats to insulate the body’s heat.

Winter survival kit All drivers should have a winter survival kit in their vehicle. In addition to the items that should be in their vehicle at all times (warning devices, jumper cables, tool kit, first aid kit), they should also carry a snow brush and scraper, shovel, traction devices, a brightly colored cloth, blankets/sleeping bag, extra food and water, extra medications (if necessary), and proper outerwear (extra coat, gloves, hat, boots). Stranded during the storm Knowing how to react if stranded on the road during a snowstorm is key to driver safety. First and foremost, if a driver is stranded in his/her vehicle, he/she should stay in the vehicle. He/she should never leave for assistance, unless help is visible and close (within about 100 yards). Leaving the vehicle is a dangerous decision, as it is easy to become disoriented in blowing and drifting snow. If able to safely do it, the driver should hang a brightly colored cloth outside the vehicle. He/she should run the vehicle’s engine (with the heater on) for about 10 minutes every hour to keep warm. While the engine is running, the driver should open a window slightly to prevent carbon monoxide poisoning. Also, to prevent carbon monoxide poisoning, the driver should make sure the January - February 2017

SuperTrucks are HERE


n 2009, the US Department of Energy had a bold initiative – develop Class 8 tractor trailers with 50% greater fuel efficiency. When the announcement was first made seven 7 years ago, many were skeptical of whether a task like this could be completed. Fast forward to today, and some manufacturers haven’t just met the requirements, they’ve surpassed them, thanks to their new SuperTrucks. Class 8 trucks haul about 80% of the goods in North America and use about 28 billion gallons of fuel per year in the USA alone. Even though commercial trucks only make up 4% of vehicles on the road, they consume about 20% of the fuel! In order to reduce their reliance on fossil fuels, four teams of truck manufacturers and suppliers began designing and optimizing technologies to increase fuel efficiency and lower carbon emissions. Crews from Cummins & Peterbilt, Freightliner, Navistar, and Volvo began their SuperTruck Programs. So, what makes a Class 8 SuperTruck? Although there’s not an easy or short way of defining them, SuperTrucks utilize the following technologies to increase fuel efficiency (Note: this list is not exhaustive): • Lightweight Materials – Rather than use conventional materials, some of the manufacturers have even implemented carbon fibre to reduce weight. • Highly Engineered Aerodynamic Surfaces – By making enhancements to the bumper, chassis and roof fairings, there is improved air flow under the truck, around the tires and the trailer gap.

• Advanced Combustion Engines – Bigger is not always better. Advancements such as turbo compounding improve fuel efficiency while still providing amazing power and torque. • Wide-based Low-rolling Resistance Tires – The right tires on any vehicle make a huge difference in control, fuel economy and ride comfort. Michelin Tires, for example, came up with a new design to increase fuel economy. • Idle Reduction Equipment • Engine Waste Heat Recovery Systems • Long-haul Hybrid Systems 48

January - February 2017

So, the initial nagging question was whether the fuel efficiency targets could be met. The results were staggering. The team of Cummins and Peterbilt built a SuperTruck that gave a 20% increase in engine efficiency, 76% increase in freight efficiency, resulting in a whopping 10.7 miles per gallon average rating! Freightliner, a division of Daimler, had an impressive 115% increase in freight efficiency and averaged 12.2 miles per gallon. The remaining two teams, Navistar and Volvo are also on track to surpass expectations.

We had a chance to chat with the Volvo team to gain more in-depth knowledge about their SuperTruck Program. The manufacturer’s PR team also sent some great online materials for our perusal. According to Volvo, their first challenge was to build a tractor trailer combination that had an efficient chassis and was ultra aerodynamic. Rather than using generic materials, carbon fibre was used on the entire roof, hood, and side fairing – not only is carbon much lighter, but it’s also stronger. Volvo is also working on developing new materials with similar properties but at a much lower cost. Next, their SuperTruck partner, Ridge Corp, developed trailer add-on aerodynamic devices made of composite materials in order to meet the desired durability and stiffness without compromising payload capacity. Moving on, rather than using steel, the entire chassis of the SuperTruck is made of aluminum; only the bolts holding it together are steel. Volvo’s aluminum chassis is almost half the weight of traditional steel and has the greatest impact on the vehicle weight. Thanks to a much lower weight and aerodynamic drag, Volvo’s SuperTruck required a lot less engine power. Rather than using the baseline D13 engine, a D11 engine was more than sufficient. This downsizing yielded further weight reduction. Overall, with all these changes, Volvo’s SuperTruck’s weight was reduced by 3,200 pounds. Like Volvo, other manufacturers are using state-ofthe-art technology to make sure their SuperTrucks are impressive. If what we’ve seen so far is any indication, they’ll be more than just impressive. SuperTrucks are here Jag Dhatt to stay!

FMCSA Holds with 25% For Random Testing


he U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration announced that the controlled substances random testing rate for regulated motor carriers will remain at 25 percent for 2017. FMCSA regulations require that truck and bus companies that employ commercial driver’s licensed drivers conduct random drug and alcohol tests upon these individuals at a nationally prescribed percentage, which is informed by the results of an annual survey. “For the safety of everyone traveling on our highways and roads, no driver should ever get behind the wheel under the influence of drugs or alcohol,” said FMCSA Administrator Scott Darling. “Commercial motor vehicle companies must comply with the crucial safety responsibility of conducting rigorous drug and alcohol testing programs for all of their CDL drivers.” For 2016, FMCSA lowered the minimum annual drug testing rate from 50 percent to 25 percent following three consecutive calendar years (2011, 2012, 2013) of drug testing data received in the Management Information System survey, which indicated that the positive rate for controlled substances was less than one percent. FMCSA conducts the MIS survey to ensure compliance with the set testing rates. According to federal regulations, when the data received in the MIS for two consecutive calendar years indicates that the positive rate for controlled substances is less than one percent, the FMCSA Administrator has the discretion to lower the annual testing rate to a minimum of 25 percent of a carriers’ driver positions. If, however, at any time the positive rate for controlled substances exceeds one percent, the testing rate will automatically revert upward to 50 percent. “We will continue to monitor the data closely, and should the positive rate for drug use rise above the one percent threshold in the upcoming 2015 survey, the national random testing rate requirement will be immediately increased to 50 percent,” said Darling. FMCSA’s Drug and Alcohol Testing

Survey measures the percentage of CDL drivers who test positive for drugs and/ or alcohol, as a result of random and non-random (i.e., pre-employment, postcrash, and reasonable suspicion/followup) testing. In 2014, FMCSA required carriers to randomly test 50 percent of their CDL drivers for drugs and 10 percent of their CDL drivers for alcohol. According to the survey, for random drug and alcohol testing conducted in 2014 (the most recent data available):

The estimated positive usage rate for drugs in 2014 was 0.9 percent. For 2012 and 2013, the estimated positive usage rate for drugs was estimated to be 0.6 percent and 0.7 percent, respectively. The estimated violation rate for alcohol usage (the percentage of drivers with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of 0.04 or higher) in 2014 was 0.08 percent. For 2012 and 2013, the alcohol usage violation rates were 0.03 percent and 0.09 percent, respectively.

Winterizing Your Truck

here are some lucky OTR truckers whose tires will never touch snow or ice this winter, but for most drivers this is the time of year to get their trucks ready for cold weather. (And even the drivers who stay down South shouldn’t get too cocky. In recent years, snow and ice storms have hit Arkansas, Tennessee, North Carolina and even Georgia.) Better to prepare for the worst – and do

it now before the cold weather hits. Here’s how to make sure your truck can handle whatever winter puts in its path: Battery: Cold weather drains batteries fast. Check the age and strength of your battery. Fuel additives: Every driver knows that diesel fuel can gel in extreme cold, but not everyone knows why. It’s due to paraffin, a hydrocarbon found in diesel. Paraffin crystallizes in freezing temperatures, allowing any water in the fuel to emulsify and turn the diesel to slush. The solution is to use winter blend fuel with a high cetane rating and add anti-gel additives at each fillup. Cooling systems: Yes, you have to worry about cooling systems in cold weather. A comprehensive winterization check should include inspections of the radiator, belts and hoses for potential failures. Also, check the coolant to see if it’s at the optimum freeze point. Fuel filter and water separator: Monitor the truck’s water separator daily and drain it when full to avoid contamination. Replacing old fuel filters also protects the engine. Air dryer: The air dryer prevents water from entering the brake lines where it can freeze. Make sure it works and change the filter if needed. Engine block heater: Since diesel engines require a higher cylinder temperature than gasoline vehicles, they are harder to start in the winter. Drivers who travel a lot through the coldest parts of the country should consider an electric engine block heater to use when the truck is parked for long periods of time. Tire pressure: Cold weather can cause underinflated tires, which wear faster and hurt fuel mileage. Adjust the inflation accordingly. Emergency supplies: Breakdowns in the summer are inconvenient; breakdowns in the winter can be dangerous. In addition to the usual emergency supplies, make sure to have cold-weather clothing and footwear, a shovel, flashlight with extra batteries, blankets, first aid kit, flares, radio, anti-gel fuel additive and food and water. Of course, along with the equipment checks comes a reminder to drive safely in winter conditions. By: RoadPro Family of Brands
