COMBUSTION CHAMBER BURN PATTERNS

Standard Piston Combustion Efficiency

Mack® Wave Piston Combustion Efficiency

Welcome to the next evolution in piston design. Mack’s innovative wave piston delivers 2% improvement in fuel economy and 90% reduction in soot. By adding waves to the piston bowl, the engine can utilize more available oxygen in the combustion chamber for a more complete burn than standard piston designs. It’s a small change with major results, and it’s just one example of the innovative thinking you’ll find in the advanced 2017 Mack MP® engine series. Never stop improving. MackTrucks.com

“Think as a Community, Not as an Individual”

Al`g Al`g socx dI bjwey ie`k pirvwr dI qrHW socIey! 6

rucking itself is not only a profession, but a community as well. Any individual action can make a huge impact on this community, whether good or bad. As human beings, we always think of our own benefits first because it is natural. Even though we have the right to think about ourselves first, let’s not make such individual decisions that might be beneficial to you but harm the trucking community as a whole. A couple of the major complaints we hear include the creation of unhealthy competition, followed by unhealthy practices, both as drivers and company owners. Nowadays, the industry is facing a shortage of truck drivers, as the pool of aged truckers is getting ready to retire. At the same time, new people are not showing much interest in this industry because they do not see it as a lucrative industry; many also don’t see this as a respectful career. But, if we do the work right and follow regulations, the industry does pretty well and in reality, there is good money to be made. In one of the past issues, we published a great story by one of our respected columnists, Ray Gompf. His story, “I am Old School” describes how driving a rig is not just holding a steering wheel. People in this industry must have vast overall knowledge, just like other professions. I agree with Mr. Gompf that, like other professions, trucking can have long hours. It is a respected profession that makes a huge impact in our lives. As we look forward to the beginning of the new school year, we remind all of you to be cautious as there will be more people on the roads. We also invite you to the 3rd Annual WATS – West American Truck Show, California Central Valley’s most anticipated trucking gala event. Mark your calendar for September 24th and 25th and join our USA team at Fresno Convention Center. Visit and have the chance to win one of two Harley Davidson motorcycles.

The Changing Demography of Trucking uninterrupted personal down time; the lack of support while on the road; even, having earned pay not paid; Nickelling and diming drivers out of money they have earned and need to have for their family survive. The advent of recognition of driving being a skill trade -- to happen in Ontario in 2017 -- will have a positive effect on the value of truck driving as a trade, however, unless and until there is a clearly defined career path and pay commensurate with experience and financial recognition for advanced training, then it shall be for naught. Let us hope and pray to the powers that be get the whole package right and not just piece meal it. Yes, at least in Ontario, there is a recognition that drivers are a critical element in the supply chain and because Ontario is going to be the first, rest assured, changes will come in other jurisdictions quickly. This isn’t just a North American issue but one which is world wide and these other jurisdictions will be looking to Ontario to have gotten it right. Once these changes are in use and depending on the reception of the industry, which are, so far, in a very positive light, then and only then will young people consider truck driving as a career in greater numbers. But until then, ten percent of the empty seats are going to be filled with Temporary Foreign Workers. This TFW program isn’t inexpensive for either the TFW or the employer but if it is the only way to fill empty seats then trucking companies will utilize TFWs for that ten percent of their work force. Between government fees and legal advise, TFWs are spending up to $10,000 just to get into the system, then they’re spending up to $10,000 to be fully trained to Canadian standards and yes, they are being Canadian trained regardless of previous experience. On the trucking company side, they have to spend a great deal of money to prove to government officials that hiring a TFW is the only solution by studying the labour market. Then the government will issue a permit (for a fee) so a qualified TFW may be hired but no more than 10% of a company’s labour pool can be made up of TFWs. In a labour market where workers are free to move to another carrier in thirty days, not many carriers are looking to TFWs to fill their empty seats. Quite possibly, with Ontario’s new recognition of truck driving as a trade, TFWs will not be needed and they will come to Canada as Immigrants and become Permanent Residents, rather than be forced to use programs that require a lot of faith on both sides of the hiring table and remains Temporary. Churning is a major problem in the trucking industry 10

The Changing Demography of Trucking especially for truck drivers. Churning is where recruiters “steal” truck drivers who are currently working in the trade and convince them the grass is greener on their side of the fence when the grass is always the same colour on both sides. For every person who remains loyal to the company for whom they work and that company remains loyal to the most critical element in its interface with its customers, there are ten people who will drop the reins in a heartbeat and move to another trucking company. Trucking companies are spending up to $10,000 to bring a churner into their system in the hopes they’ll stay longer than a couple of months. One of the virtually untapped sources of truck drivers is women. Women make up still such a small percentage of the truck driving pool the number is almost insignificant. 2016, to have a woman truck driver recognized officially for her input into the industry was a coup. Joanne Millen-MacKenzie, a 25 year truck driver with Highland, was recognized for not just her 25 years in the industry but for her involvement in her fight to prevent breast cancer through the Trucking for a Cure she’s been doing for the better part of the last decade. You’ll easily recognize Joanne when you see her on the road. Her truck is Pink. It’s well decaled with Trucking for a Cure logos. Highland, for their part, support her efforts with the Trucking for a Cure, recognizing they can’t buy that kind of publicity anywhere. We have many superb female truck drivers in the industry’s labour pool but there are room for many many more. As a country, as a trucking industry, an industry so critical to the national economy, there must be a concerted effort to bring young people and yes, young women into seeing truck driving as a viable career.

NHTSA Proposes to Manage Drowsy and Distracted Driving

T

he National Highway Traffic Safety Administration published proposed guidelines regarding states’ management of drowsy and distracted driving. The guidelines include recommendations for policy-making, law enforcement and other areas designed to help states build comprehensive programs to lower the rates of accidents caused by drowsy or distracted drivers. To combat drowsy driving, NHTSA specifically encourages states to work with employers to reduce job-related road fatigue by allowing for shift changes or rest periods to keep drivers fresh. For purposes of enforcement, the agency suggests law officers target erratic driving behaviours that may indicate drowsy driving and which are already primary offences. To further increase enforcement ability, NHTSA is encouraging states to pass laws that ban drowsy driving. NHTSA also calls upon both public and private employers to help fight distracted driving by prohibiting the use of wireless or electronic devices while operating a vehicle on the job. The agency calls for laws that make the use of such devices while operating a motor vehicle a primary offence in every state and asks that 12

legislators include the practice of texting while stopped in an active traffic lane among the prohibited activities. NHTSA’s proposed guidelines are available for review on the Federal Register, where comments may be submitted through September 22 by searching for docket number 2016-20165.

Trucking With Benefits likely as a self employed owner of a company that they themselves may need coverage for their own family. Also, there is high turnover in trucking. A driver may think twice before leaving a firm that offers health benefits. This builds loyalty. Offering health benefits may also attract more drivers to join that firm because they want benefits and retain them for years to come. Benefits are also tax deductible for the employer. The benefit portions deducted from employees on the other side are pretax dollars, which leaves more take home pay after the deduction. A huge group is not needed to start a health benefit plan. As little as three people are all that is needed. An organization that offers benefits to its drivers and office employees, establishes a level of trust and loyalty. It shows they care about their drivers, their employees, and their families.

Trucking company owners are reliant on truck drivers to make themselves and the company income. It makes sense to protect these drivers and their families. A driver is an investment, so protect your investment with a group health plan. I encourage drivers to approach their bosses and vice versa to establish health benefit plans which are affordable and beneficial to the entire organization.

BTS Statistics Release:

June 2016 North American Freight Numbers

A

ll transportation modes except air carried less crossborder freight by value in June 2016 compared to June 2015 resulting in a 6.4 percent decrease to $92.7 billion in the total current dollar value of freight moved. June was the 18th consecutive month that the total value of U.S. freight with North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) partners Canada and Mexico declined from the same month of the previous year, according to the TransBorder Freight Data released today by the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Bureau of Transportation Statistics (BTS). Freight by Mode The value of commodities moving by air increased 5.0 percent, mainly due to a 35.6 percent increase in the value of imports of pearls, precious stones, and metals. The value of freight carried on other modes declined: rail 4.4 percent; truck 5.8 percent; pipeline 15.6 percent; and vessel 19.7 percent. A drop in the price of crude oil played a key role in the large declines in

the dollar value of products shipped by vessel and pipeline. Crude oil (a component of mineral fuels) comprises a large share of the commodities carried by these modes. Average monthly prices for crude petroleum and refined fuel are available from the U.S. Energy Information Administration. Mineral fuels, a commodity category that includes crude oil and coal, accounted for 9.4 percent of total value of U.S.-NAFTA trade in June. Trucks carried 65.4 percent of U.S.-NAFTA freight and continued to be the most heavily utilized mode for moving goods to and from both U.S.-NAFTA partners. Trucks accounted for $31.2 billion of the $49.2 billion of imports (63.5 percent) and $29.4 billion of the $43.5 billion of exports (67.5 percent). Rail remained the second largest mode by value, moving 15.2 percent of all U.S.-NAFTA freight, followed by vessel, 6.0 percent; pipeline, 4.5 percent; and air, 4.0 percent. The surface transportation modes of truck, rail and pipeline carried 85.1 percent of the total value of U.S.-NAFTA freight flows. U.S.-Canada Freight From June 2015 to June 2016, the value of U.S.-Canada freight flows fell 7.2 percent to $48.2 billion as all modes of transportation except air carried a lower value of U.S.-Canada freight than a year earlier. Lower crude oil prices contributed to a year-overyear decrease in the value of freight moved between the U.S. and Canada. Crude oil is a large share of freight carried by pipeline and vessel, which were down 16.1 percent and 31.9 percent respectively year-over-year. Trucks carried 60.4 percent of the value of the freight to and from Canada. Rail carried 15.8 percent followed by pipeline, 7.9 percent; air, 4.9 percent; and vessel, 4.0 percent. The surface transportation modes of truck, rail and pipeline carried 84.1 percent of the value of total U.S.-Canada freight flows. U.S.-Mexico Freight From June 2015 to June 2016, the value of U.S.-Mexico freight declined 5.5 percent to $44.5 billion as all modes of transportation except air carried a lower value of U.S.-Mexico freight than a year earlier. Freight carried by air increased 1.3 percent. Rail decreased 4.9 percent and truck decreased by 5.5 percent. Pipeline and vessel freight value dropped by 10.1 percent and 11.3 percent respectively, both due mainly to lower crude oil prices. Trucks carried 70.8 percent of the value of freight to and from Mexico. Rail carried 14.5 percent followed by vessel, 8.1 percent; air, 3.0 percent; and pipeline, 0.7 percent. The surface transportation modes of truck, rail and pipeline carried 86.1 percent of the value of total U.S.-Mexico freight flows. See BTS Transborder Statistics Release for summary tables and additional data. See North American Transborder Freight Data on the BTS website for additional data for surface modes since 1995 and all modes since 2004. September / October 2016

Safety Entrant Audit

Safety Entrant Audit syPtI AYNtrYNt Awift NSC Compliance Services

What is a New Entrant Program? The New Entrant Program is a program which educates new motor carriers about the federal safety standards and regulations. Who does the New Entrant Program apply to? The Program applies to all new U.S. and Canadian domiciled motor carrier owners and operators that want to conduct business within the United States. Is there an audit in this program and is there a time frame in which the audit is conducted? There will be a safety entrant audit conducted by a certified U.S. federal safety investigator, state or provincial enforcement office. The audit will be conducted within 18 months of the authority being granted to the motor carrier. Where is this audit conducted? The audit is generally conducted at the principal place of business but can sometimes be conducted at the State Patrol’s office or other federal offices. What can cause a motor carrier to fail the audit? There are several key reasons that can cause the motor carrier to fail the audit, listed below are some of the main issues. Alcohol and Drug Violations: • Not having an alcohol and/or drug testing program and a random alcohol and drug testing program. • Using a driver without having them take the alcohol or drug test. • Using a driver the company knows had a blood alcohol content of 0.04 or greater. • Using a driver who does not complete the required followup procedures if tested positive for drugs. Driver related issues: • Using a driver without a valid Commercial Driver’s license (CDL) or a driver who’s CDL has been revoked, suspended or cancelled. • Using a medically unqualified driver. 20

Safety Entrant Audit Operations related issues: • Not having the required level of insurance on file. • Not having adequate hours of service records. Vehicle related issues: • Operating a vehicle without repairing any safety related defects mentioned in an Out-of-Service inspection or in the driver’s vehicle inspection report. • Operating a commercial vehicle that has not been periodically inspected. What happens if the motor carrier fails the audit? If the motor carrier fails the audit the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) will provide the motor carrier a written notice within 45 days after the completion of the audit to take action to fix the issues found in the audit. If the motor carrier fails to provide a corrective action plan and to implement the safety measures to ensure the matters have been taken care of within the time frame given by the FMCSA then the motor carrier will be put out of service. What happens if the motor carrier fails to reply in the time frame given by the FMCSA? If the motor carrier does not provide a corrective action plan then the carrier will be put out of service. The carrier will have to wait 30 days after the date of revocation to reapply and submit documentation that the deficiencies have been corrected. The 18 month monitoring period will start again as of the date that the re-application is approved. What happens if the motor carrier passes the audit? The FMCSA sends a letter to the motor carrier stating the results of the audit. The carrier’s performance will still be closely monitored for the balance of the 18 month period.

TransCore Link Logistics 18th Annual Conference and Charity Golf Tournament

T

ransCore Link Logistics 18th Annual Conference and Charity Golf Tournament shined brightly on the hottest day of the year. On July 13th, Desi Trucking Magazine was honoured to be a sponsor of the event and of course, play a great round of golf. This hugely successful event has evolved into one of the most popular Toronto area transportation industry golf tournaments of its kind. Players representing the carrier community, shippers, brokers and industry associates attended for a fun-filled day of golf and connect with industry friends and acquaintances. The day began with the conference, in which over 150 people attended, another record number. Attendees were able to network, exchange information, and have a great BBQ lunch. After the luncheon, guests made their way to their waiting golf carts and it was time to tee up. TransCore made sure that the tournament went smoothly and stayed on time. At the same time, there were lots of opportunities to have fun and win some great prizes. Yours truly won a great gift card for the closest shot to the line. With the temperatures soaring in the mid-afternoon sun, golfers made sure they kept cool with ice-cream, smoothies, and other various drinks. Following the golf tournament, it was time for a well-deserved dinner. There were some great speeches and tonnes of pictures of the day. Although everyone was quite tired from the day’s activities, the dinner event was full of energy and of course, there were LOTS of prizes. It’s safe to say that every attendee walked away with one or two prizes. This is on top of the gifts received at the beginning of the day. TransCore sure knows how to host this event! Desi Trucking Magazine, and its parent company JGK Media Inc., have worked closely with TransCore for many years now. This was our first TransCore golf tournament, but it definitely isn’t our last. We shall be there next year to show our support and of course, have lots of fun. TransCore sincerely appreciates all of their valued customers, partners, sponsors and guests who came out to the event in support of children's charities across Canada and in celebration of their 25th anniversary. Some Key Facts about the Day: • 2016 showed the highest customer attendance at the free morning user conference, surpassing 150 people. • A sold out golf tournament (144 Golfers) – One first-time attendee said that it was the best tournament she’s ever been to in her life! • A total of 27 sponsors, including 10 premium sponsorship spots. • Net proceeds were still being reviewed, but a rough estimate is close to $24K, another record. Make sure you attend next year’s event because it will be amazing. By: JGK Media Staff September / October 2016

Ridewell Offers New Low Ride Height Trailer Suspensions

R

idewell Suspensions builds upon its expertise in lightweight, fully integrated trailer suspensions with the release of 20K and 25K Capacity Low-Mount-Height Trailer Suspensions for the RAR-266 product family. Both systems are available in drum or disc brake axle configurations with standard or custom axle widths. The RAR-266 Low-Mount 20K Trailer Suspension utilizes a narrow bushing design to achieve a lightweight, durable system that fits applications with limited space. The 20K suspension can be configured for use with 19.5” and 22.5” tires at a 7” ride height. The 25K-version of the low-mounting-height system allows customers to standardize on

a wide-bushing pivot connection while accommodating 6.25”-to-9.5” ride heights. Both systems take advantage of a 5.75” large diameter axle combined with short cams to minimize axle weight. The integrated system saves installation time and requires less maintenance. Ridewell manufactures suspensions for the truck, trailer, bus, and RV industries worldwide.

Peterbilt Pacific Invests in the Trucking Community pItriblt pYsIiPk v`loN tr`ikMg kimauntI ‘c invyS Jag Dhatt

To be successful, you have to have your heart in your business, and your business in your heart.” Thomas Watson, Sr. nailed it with this quote because really, without heart, nothing survives. More importantly, companies that put the hearts of their customers first are the ones that thrive and make an impact in their community. For over 35 years, Peterbilt Pacific has done just that and now, the organization is poised to invest even more in their customers and the transport industry. Two years ago, Peterbilt Pacific had five dealerships under its belt, but by next September, the number will go up to seven, with the newest one opening in Delta. The expansion of the company has seen the addition of 16 new service bays to ensure customers don’t have to wait. “We realize how expensive these trucks are – it’s the trucks that put food on the tables,” says Scott Winton, President of Peterbilt Pacific. “For that reason, our staff is committed in maximizing uptime and reducing downtime because when a driver isn’t on the road, he is losing money.” And it’s not just the addition of infrastructure, but new technology that has helped as well. Last year, Peterbilt launched its new Rapid Check program, which provides customers with diagnostics and an estimate of needed repairs in two hours or less. Combined with the fact that new Peterbilt trucks can now broadcast through SmartLINQ, when a truck comes to any Peterbilt Pacific dealership for repairs, a bay, technician, and parts are all ready for work to begin. “With Rapid Check, customers can get the best and most reliable service with a quick turnaround,” says Aman Sundher, Sales Professional at Peterbilt Pacific. “And most importantly, we service all trucks, regardless of brand or repairs needed, and for the most part, we can get the customer back on the road in less time than the estimate,” adds Sundher. “For our organization, customer satisfaction is the number one priority,” says Branch and Sales Manager, Doug Paul. “The entire team of sales, service, parts, and warranty professionals at Peterbilt Pacific works like a well-oiled machine and for that reason, our customers always leave satisfied.” When looking at the history of the organization, it’s easy to see why customers keep coming back to Peterbilt Pacific. The staff are all on the same page and the company has a very high retention rate. The average longevity of a Peterbilt Pacific technician is 28 years – yes, you read that right, 28 years! “Once someone joins the Peterbilt Pacific team, he or she rarely leaves,” says Winton. And what’s more, the organization starts to recruit potential team members at the right time. It’s a reality that many students don’t know what career path they want, or should take, and many don’t look towards the transportation industry as viable options. Both Winton and Paul have experienced much success 28

Peterbilt Pacific Invests in the Trucking Community during their 25+ years in the industry, and for that reason, they take the initiative to reach the coming generation. “We try to reach high school students through presentations and during career days because we want them to know that the transportation industry should be an option for them,” say Winton and Paul. “Plus, Peterbilt Pacific works closely with BCIT, investing over $40,000 per person in an apprenticeship program,” adds Winton. In a time when fuel options are necessary, Peterbilt Pacific again leads the pack, being the only organization in the lower mainland that has certified service bays for both compressed natural gas (CNG) and liquid nitrogen gas (LNG). “We look towards the future and make it a priority to cover all the bases – that includes being able to service the various fuel options,” says Paul. In today’s competitive world, customer satisfaction and retention speak volumes about an organization’s reputation. “Our staff is the reason why customers always come back to Peterbilt Pacific,” says Winton. “With a staff of about 300, we’re here to make sure all of our clients’ needs are met. What’s more is that each Peterbilt Pacific dealership invests and adapts to the changing dynamics of its local community in a unique way. For example, for our lower mainland dealerships, we are changing our websites to ensure it is language friendly to the local South-Asian community. Finally, we have great partnerships with other companies, like Cummins Western Canada; thus I believe our entire structure and focus is customer oriented, the way it should be.” With a proud history, multiple locations, great partnerships, and a staff that is principled in customer service, Peterbilt Pacific continues to invest in the local community to ensure the trucking industry keeps moving forward.

According to the company, the integrated system is specifically designed for Peterbilt vehicles to help improve ride quality and durability with ease of maintenance. “The development of Softek NXT demonstrates our commitment to efficient designs that contribute substantial weight savings, a key priority for the industry as we prepare for upcoming fuel efficiency standards. Our launch with Peterbilt showcases our combined initiatives in advanced component integration,”

said

Woodall,

Gerry Remus, director of marketing for Hendrickson Truck Commercial Vehicle Systems. “Peterbilt’s dedication to driver uptime solutions is wellmatched with Hendrickson’s determination to integrate purposeful customer solutions with high quality products,” said Robert Peterbilt assistant general

manager of sales and marketing. “The higher reliability of Softek NXT design will lessen our customers’ service times, therefore increasing uptime.” Available now in a 12,500-lb. capacity rating, Softek NXT is approved for onhighway applications and will soon be available in a 13,200-lb. capacity, the company said.

FMCSA to do a Pilot Program to Allow 18 to 21 Year Olds Operate CMV

A

s required by the FixingAmerica’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) is proposing a three-year pilot program allowing a limited number of individuals between the ages of 18 and 21 to operate commercial motor vehicles in interstate commerce if they received specified heavyvehicle driver training while in military service and are sponsored by a participating motor carrier. FMCSA is also proposing criteria for a working group to consult with the agency in conducting, monitoring, and evaluating the pilot program. The agency seeks public input during the next 30 days on the pilot program as well as outlined procedural steps and a data collection plan. September / October 2016

016 was another great year for the annual Chrome for Kids event. The event began as a way to raise awareness and raise funds for BC Children’s Hospital. This year showed a phenomenal turnout with over 131 trucks that came from BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba. After a weekend of fun for the whole family at Mission Raceway, the team managed to raise $114,868.84 for BC Children’s Hospital. People from near and far came to not only enjoy in the fun and festivities, but show

their support for the event. Even though this year’s event has now passed, the ZZ Chrome team is already busy planning the next one. For 2017, the Chrome for Kids event is being planned for the third week of August, so mark your calendars. There is also the possibility that big rig races could be added to the itinerary. The entire team at ZZ Chrome would sincerely like to thank everyone who came out, including guests, sponsors, the amazing volunteers, and of course, Mission Raceway.

NACFE Results a 3% Betterment in Fuel Economy

S

eventeen fleets operating more than 62,000 tractors and 217,000 trailers saw a 3% increase in fuel economy in 2015, saving an accumulative $501 million on fuel when compared to the 2015 national average fuel spend of 1.7 million over-theroad Class 8 trucks. They achieved these gains by purchasing a variety of fuel efficiency technologies, according to the Annual Fleet Fuel Study released by the North American Council for Freight Efficiency.

Fleet-wide mpg increased from 6.87 to 7.06 in 2015, the largest margin of improvement in eight years of consecutive improvements. The trade cycle for these fleets is a little over five years, meaning that the new trucks are about 16% more efficient than the 2010 model year trucks they replaced. The adoption rate of new efficiency technologies such as electronically controlled transmissions, low-viscosity engine oil, and tire pressure inflation on trailers continued to increase even though diesel fuel prices

averaged $2.71 in 2015. “Investing in ReWrite efficiency technologies is the new normal,” said Mike

Roeth, operation lead for CWR’s Trucking Efficiency and executive director of NACFE. “And these fleets are continuing to make investments because they do not want to be caught short when fuel prices go up again.” The primary finding of this report is that the 17 fleets studied are increasing their rate of adoption of these technologies, and that they are enjoying improved fuel economy as a result. The overall adoption rate for the technologies studied in this report has grown from 18% in 2003 to 43% last year. The average fleet-wide fuel economy of the trucks in this study averaged 7.06 mpg in 2015, a 3% increase over the same fleet in 2014. The fleets in this study on average sell their trucks in 5.25 years. This suggests that the new trucks put into service in 2015 (2016 MY) by these fleets were about 16% better than the ones removed — the ones which had been put into service in 2009 (2010 MY). This is a significant improvement in fuel efficiency, and the report concludes there were three basic elements: movement to EPA 2010 systems using diesel exhaust fluid, the 2014 GHG phase 1 products, and the year-over-year increase in adoption of the technologies included in this study. The fuel savings in 2016 between the “business-as-usual” 6.30 mpg and the NACFE fleets average of 7.06 mpg amounts to $4,653 per year per truck. September / October 2016

Truck Drivers Have a Dangerous Job

he United States Department of Labor highlighted the extreme but often overlooked danger inherent in the truck driver’s job. Truckers are subject to some of the highest death and injury rates of all American workers. Truckers account for one out of every six on-the-job deaths in the U.S. and are three times more likely than the average worker to suffer an illness or injury that requires time away from work. When drivers do miss work, the rigour of being behind the wheel all day leads to twice the recovery time needed for other types of workers. Musculoskeletal disorders are a common problem in the industry, with truck drivers ranking as the third most common type of worker to complain of strains, sprains, neuropathy, back pain and

other related conditions. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s “Our Roads, Our Responsibility” campaign is designed to reduce the frequency and severity of accidents involving large commercial motor vehicles. The DOL encourages drivers to view the resources available through the FMCSA, as well as detailed statistics about work-related injuries and fatalities available through the Bureau of Labor Statistics. “We hope that this kind of detailed information will help employers improve conditions for tractor-trailer drivers, as well as empower workers with knowledge about the hazards they’re likely to encounter.

Kenworth to End Production of its T660

K

enworth announced Tuesday, Aug. 16, that it will sunset its T660 by year-end after 10 years of production, and is now offering customers a “last call” opportunity to order from the final production allotment of 500 T660s. “The Kenworth T660 has been a fantastic truck for our customers with more than 60,000 T660s sold since its introduction in 2007,” said Jason Skoog, Kenworth assistant general manager for sales and marketing. “Due to its popularity, we continued to offer the T660 after introducing the award-winning T680 four years ago.” When it entered the Class 8 market, the T660 became the latest evolution of Kenworth’s aerodynamic product line taking the reins from the Kenworth T600 – the industry’s first truly aerodynamic truck that debuted in 1985. Truck operators interested in ordering the Kenworth T660 may contact their Kenworth dealer for more information. The T660 is standard with the PACCAR MX-13 engine rated at 455-hp and 1,650 lb-ft of torque. The T660 is available as a day cab or in 38-inch, 62-inch, 72-inch and 86-inch AeroCab sleeper configurations. September / October 2016

Navistar and Bendix Offer Bundle Line-Up

A

full wheel-end portfolio from Bendix – consisting of the Bendix ADB22X air disc brake, Bendix EverSure Spring Brake, Bendix Versajust LS Slack Adjuster, and Bendix foundation drum brakes – is now available on a range of International Trucks’ medium- and heavy-duty trucks and ICbranded buses. “Leading off the Bendix bundle lineup, customers can improve their stopping power by spec’ing Bendix ADB22X air disc brakes as an option on all Class 6-8 platforms where air disc brake technology is available; or by taking advantage of the proven performance of Bendix foundation drum brakes, an option on all Class 5-8 air-braked vehicle platforms,” Bendix said. “New as an option on International’s entire lineup of Class 5-8 air-braked tractor, truck, and bus platforms is the Versajust Slack Adjuster, with the EverSure spring brake standard on the same vehicle set.” “At Navistar, our customer focus is what drives us. It’s why we now offer the opportunity to choose the full menu of Bendix braking components – because, in doing so, our customers will experience the performance, safety, and efficiency benefits of wheel-end components engineered to work as a unit,” said Jeff Sass, senior vice president, Trucks and Parts, International Trucks.

Skyway Bridge Incident Driver Sentenced

T

he dump truck driver who crashed into Ontario’s Skyway Bridge in Burlington in 2014 was today sentenced to a year in prison, plus a three-year driving ban. Sukhvinder Singh Rai’s case garnered major controversy after he registered almost triple the legal limit of alcohol the day of the crash, which closed the bridge for four days. But in March 2016, Judge Fred Campling ruled the test results were inadmissible because they were collected too long after the crash. The breath test was conducted five hours after the collision, but the Criminal Code requires such tests to be completed within three hours. Following the judge’s finding, Rai pled not guilty to the five remaining charges, which included dangerous driving and mischief endangering life. The July 31 collision caused more than $1 million in damage and shut down a key link between the Greater Toronto Area and Niagara Region over a holiday weekend. September / October 2016

s we go about our daily routine, driving, we probably cross railway tracks about a dozen times and never ever give those tracks a second thought. It is this thinking or more correctly, not thinking, that is dangerous. Whether the tracks have no warning protection or whether it has lights and bells, all crossings are marked on the road warning of their presence and it is those warning to which we must pay attention. There is always a small warning sign on a post. More often than not there are cross bucks painted on the road approaching the tracks and always there is a cross buck sign posted close by the rail crossing. Not only is it expensive when there is a collision between a vehicle and a train, invariably it is the fault of the vehicle. The train has the right of way, no ifs ands or buts. In Canada there are on average, forty wrecks every year between large commercial trucks and trains. In the past few weeks, there have been several, two of which come to mind. There was one at the Emerson MB International Border Crossing between a truck and train. Again, there was one on the Trans-Canada Highway at Moose Jaw. At both of these rail crossings the view is not obstructed and visibility is measured in kilometres. Yet, in both cases a collision occurred. While the Transportation Safety Board hasn’t ruled on either of these recent cases, you can rest assured that “human error” on the part of the truck driver was a key factor. In the recent past, there have been wrecks of import. The first and most prominent at least for me was a bus train collision in Ottawa that killed six people – the bus driver and five of his passengers. Again the TSB hasn’t ruled a cause to date and probably not for a few more months. These investigations are thorough and leave no stone unturned, so naturally take a great deal of time and effort to arrive at the cause. Lawyers don’t wait for TSB findings but make assumptions and in the case of this bus and it’s dead passengers, the law suits are in the mega millions. It will take years, maybe decades to have these cases work their way through the courts and “blame” assigned but let’s just say, legal careers are being made with this particular wreck. 44

Safety by Any Other Name Recently a Nevada jury did have one of these wrecks work it’s way through its court system and predictably found the commercial truck driver and truck owner at fault and responsible for the cost of the wreck. In this particular wreck, six people died including the truck driver. The jury ordered John Davis Trucking of Battle Mountain, Nev., to pay more than $4.5 million to Amtrak and the Union Pacific railroad. The 2011 fiery collision happened on U.S. Highway 95 west of Reno when the truck crashed through the crossing gate and hit an Amtrak passenger train. Much of the testimony at the trial centered on a National Transportation Safety Board report. It concluded that John Davis Trucking had disabled the anti-lock brakes on the trailer and that most of the truck’s brake drums were seriously worn. There are undoubtedly many more millions to be paid out as a result of lawsuits on behalf of those killed in this wreck. But, now that a court has ruled a fault judgment, the suits will be brought to a conclusion. These few examples are the critical thoughts in our minds as we cross each and every rail crossing in our daily life. We can not slip for even a second into absent mindedness. We may get away with being absent-minded a thousand times but it’s that one time that makes matters. Because we DO get away with being absent-minded so often, we fall into that state of complacency that allows us to think we’ll never get caught. Never allow yourself to reach that point.

When I was in High School, a class mate of mine died in a car/ train collision along with his father and younger brother. That was more than fifty years ago. His name was Lawrence MacKenzie. Their farm lane, leading to the road, crossed a rail way track, so they certainly knew the train ran by very often both day and night. Yet, the old story of familiarity breeding contempt must have played a role. Visibility was not an issue. Yet I still went to that funeral and saw those three caskets draped in white. Three different sized caskets; an adult size; one slightly smaller (Lawrence) and the baby size (the little brother). I can still smell the flowers in the church. Yes, that wreck has had an affect on my life. It has made me think of safety and in particular rail safety for my entire life. The other day, several of us from my hometown were remembering Lawrence. I think it was me that brought his name up and there was not a person among us that didn’t remember the occasion of Lawrence’s death. It was indelibly etched in each of our memories. When I was in the Army, I was the one always aware where railway tracks would intersect with roads and believe me, we crossed a lot of unmarked crossings on private land where there were no warning signs. When I became a trucker, I was the one slowing down to the prescribed speed limit approaching rail crossings and doing all those things recommended to become aware of if there is a train closeby. Rolling down the window to improve hearing, turning down radios so there was no distractions listening for trains; looking both ways along tracks and then remaining in the same gear until having passed over the tracks. There is a rail crossing not far from my home in which I cross regularly. I slow for this crossing every time, yet I can’t tell you the number of cars that have passed me going in my direction across these tracks because they can’t risk a few seconds of their life to be safe. It’s such a shame that people feel the need to sacrifice safety for time. It costs me zero time to ensure I’m safe yet so many people feel such verification of safety is worth their while. That’s the sadness associated with what we allow ourselves to forget about personal safety for the sake of expediency. Our governments and railway companies spend millions each year to prevent rail crossing incidents, conducting awareness programs, making information easily available for all to use, yet in our industry, every year, there are on average forty incidents involving commercial trucks and trains. This is forty wreck too many and until we can bring that number to zero, and zero is the only goal worthwhile, then we have not achieved a point where we know everyone in our industry is constantly thinking of the outcomes. Be aware. Be smart. Be Safe. 46

CVSA’s Operation Safe Driver Week to Be Held Oct. 16-22

T

he Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance has announced Operation Safe Driver Week will be held Oct. 16-22. The program is designed to combat unsafe driving behaviors by both commercial motor vehicle and passenger vehicle drivers. Law enforcement will amplify traffic safety enforcement and education during Safe Driver Week. Throughout North America, law enforcement will be on the lookout for speeding, failure to use a seat belt while operating a commercial vehicle or passenger vehicle, distracted driving, failure

to obey traffic control devices, traveling too closely, improper lane change, and other unsafe driving conduct. Last year, more than 21,000 commercial and passenger vehicle drivers were pulled over during Operation Safe Driver Week. More than 19,000 roadside inspections were conducted on commercial drivers and vehicles. Passenger vehicle drivers were found to speed significantly more than commercial drivers. The top five warnings and citations issued to commercial drivers in 2015 were: Size and weight Speeding Failure to use a seat belt while operating vehicle Failure to obey traffic control device Using a handheld phone For more information about Operation Safe Driver Week, CVSA encourages drivers to reach out to the agency or department responsible for commercial motor vehicle safety within their jurisdiction. Drivers can visit CVSA.org for a complete list of agency contacts and more information.

Undercutting in Trucking Pash Brar, B.A.

T

here is competition in every industry, including trucking. A very common way of overcoming competition in trucking is to undercut when bidding for the load. By undercutting, I mean to offer a lower price than your competition for a load. This essentially takes that load away from the competition. Now that the load has been obtained by offering the lower price, has it necessarily made that company any money? Often the end result may not be all it seems. When bidding on a load, there are obvious factors that must be taken in to account to earn money. The distance being travelled, fuel being consumed, any extra insurance costs, extra permit costs, time to load and unload, is there a backhaul, pay to the driver, truck and trailer maintenance etc. These factors must be taken in to account for each load bid on. If the price is too low to make money, why would anyone take a load for a loss? There are companies which are taking loads for a loss, and many in the industry are saying it is these companies which are destroying the current trucking industry today. In BC there was a strike in March of 2014 at Port Metro Vancouver due mostly to pay issues. Rates, unpaid time spent waiting and undercutting were the big issues. Hundreds of millions of dollars worth of cargo was left stranded at the docks during the 28 day dispute. In June 2014 there was a strike threatened again because the pay increases promised from the previous dispute settlement were not being honored which should have taken place on April 3. They were accusing companies of not paying the agreed pay increases all to make a profit. When loads are undercut, there are very few ways to now earn a profit, and often it is at the expense of the truck driver. Pay the driver less so the company can earn a profit. The truck driver is who often suffers the wrath of undercutting. Recently in BC a few trucking companies banded together to undercut each of their loads by $400. I have a few drivers working for one of the companies. They immediately left to go work elsewhere 52

and so did most of their colleagues. Other trucking companies were lining up to hire the disgruntled truckers. The drivers I know personally who left are hardworking, honest men trying to support their families. As they told me, they cannot provide for their families by staying with a company who agreed to undercut loads and make them pay for it. Running at a loss was not an option for the drivers. I see the pay statements for all of my drivers. I see pay discrepancies on most of them. The rate does not match what the driver has written on their pay envelope. Drivers tell me that they ask for the rate and are sometimes not even told and have to take a load not knowing if they can cover even their fuel costs. Or they ask one day and its one rate, and the next day the same load is a different rate, and their friend at the same company is quoted another rate entirely for the exact same load. I had to deal with a wife of one of my drivers who was crying her eyes out. She was asking why the company couldn’t just pay her husband who risked his life every day driving to feed their family, honestly. He left that company I’m happy to say along with 14 others. Without drivers, you have no business. With competition everywhere, undercutting is not the only way to get a load and to earn a profit. Whether it’s in trucking or in any business, we all have competition. It’s how we deal with that competition that sets us apart. Prompt courteous service and customer service is an excellent tool. Competition helps businesses to build loyalty to your good service. When others offer the same services you do, you must distinguish yourself. Education and innovation are invaluable. See what competitors are doing right and wrong and learn what you can do to make your business that much better. In trucking it’s your drivers who are your service tools. Educate them and work as a team. Learn your core market with the drivers. They’re the one’s seeing everything on a daily basis. Get their feedback and have them participate in the company. When the drivers are happy and involved, and earning a profit, the whole industry earns a profit. September / October 2016

State-of-the-art Heating with the New Eberspaecher Hydronic S3 Economy (5kW) Pre-heater System

M

ississauga, Ontario August 2016 –Eberspaecher, the leading system developer and supplier of vehicle heaters, is expanding its product portfolio with the new Hydronic S3 Economy (5kW) engine pre-heater. The engine pre heater impresses thanks to its compact dimensions and flexible installation options for simple retrofitting in a large number of day cabs, sleepers, off-highway and construction equipment, marine, bus, municipal and

work truck vehicles. As a ground-breaking all-in-one solution with comprehensive peripheral devices, it offers installation partners many practical advantages. With the new EasyScan diagnostic and service tool, workshop staff can analyze the operating condition of the pre-heater easily and quickly. • Compact, efficient water heater with CAN bus interfaces • Innovative peripheral devices and new diagnostic device • Simplified installation • CARB approved Compact and robust engine pre-heater for simple installations With the third generation of its Hydronic series, Eberspaecher is offering an easy-to-operate preheater with stepless heating power control. The coolant heater works efficiently with all popular types of fuel. Due to its robust construction – with an encapsulated fan motor and the separation of cold and hot components – it is designed for longevity. A high IP protection class also secures the unit from the ingress of water during high-pressure or steam jet cleaning. The new water spigots are fully rotatable by 360 degrees and are fully replaceable, they ensure convenient and rapid fitting in a range of installation positions. Optimized brackets enable the pre-heater to be mounted anywhere in the smallest possible space and can be attached quickly for ease of install.

Smart Choice Maintenance Plan Prevent costly breakdown. Cover upto $60,000 worth of repair

ontinental recommends that professional technicians understand the importance of changing under-hood belts with all-inclusive kit products rather than individual components – especially before fall and winter arrive. “As the summer comes to a close and children head back to school, consumers will be logging miles carpooling students to many games and after-school activities,” said Tom Lee, Continental’s marketing manager for North American automotive aftermarket products. “Now is the perfect time of the year for drivers to prepare their vehicles for the additional miles and inclement weather the fall and winter months will bring. That’s why we recommend to all professional repair technicians to replace all accessory drive components at the same time to prevent the serpentine belt from premature and uneven wear, reducing the chance for loss of tension or belt slippage on any of the system’s components.” September / October 2016

Speed Limiters A Go

U

nited States Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx announced that the Department’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration propose equipping heavy-duty vehicles with devices that limit their speeds on U.S. roadways, as well as requiring those devices be set to a maximum speed, a safety measure the department says could save lives and more than $1 billion in fuel costs each year. “There are significant safety benefits to this proposed rule-making,” Foxx said. “In addition to saving lives, the projected fuel and emissions savings make this proposal a win for safety, energy conservation and our environment.”

T UCK BODY & PAINT

The department’s proposal would establish safety standards requiring all newly manufactured U.S. trucks, buses and multipurpose passenger vehicles with a gross vehicle weight rating more than 26,000 pounds to come equipped with speed limiting devices. The proposal discusses the benefits of setting the maximum speed at 60, 65 and 68 miles per hour, but the agencies will consider other speeds based on public input. “This is basic physics,” said NHTSA Administrator Mark Rosekind. “Even small increases in speed have large effects on the force of impact. Setting the speed limit on heavy vehicles makes sense for safety and the environment.” “Safe trucking moves our economy, and safe bus operations transport our loved ones,” said FMCSA Administrator T.F. Scott Darling III. “This proposal will save lives while ensuring that our nation’s fleet of large commercial vehicles operates fuel efficiently.” Motor carriers operating commercial vehicles in interstate commerce would be responsible for maintaining the speed limiting devices at or below the designated speed for the service life of the vehicle under the proposal.
