A Goal is a Dream with a Deadline

Everyone has dreams for his or her future. For some, their dreams come true; but for the majority, they remain just that – dreams. Those who do not have dreams cannot get as far as they want in their lives as they would like. In the same breath, those who have dreams but do not pursue them also can’t get far as well. We have been working in the trucking industry for a long time now so I can relate and make connections to the above words. If you see a successful trucking company and you dream of trucking as a profession, there is nothing wrong with it. First of all, get proper knowledge about this profession through formal education from industry experts and from those already working successfully in the profession. By doing this, you can pre-calculate the advantages and disadvantages of the profession. By attaining the preliminary knowledge of the profession, you can better decide if it is the right profession for you. The second step is to make a checklist of the required training you will need and pursue it step by step. The most important thing is to take the proper training and go through all necessary steps rather than taking any shortcuts. The time you spend in the beginning will pay off in the long run and make you a more successful professional. Now that you are in the profession, ensure that you know the rules, laws, and regulations, and never try to bypass them. It takes less time and effort to follow rules rather than face the consequences. By taking a shortcut, or breaking laws or regulations, you can easily lose your dreams and any acquired wealth. Learning is a never ending process. Keep learning, become better day-by-day and see your dreams being fulfilled.

Technology and Aerodynamics T

he recent Mid-America Trucking Show was a look into the future of trucking. All the manufacturers were there proudly displaying their version of the perfect vehicle where computers play a more important role than those who will be charged with driving them. Leading the charge was Freightliner with its entry called the SuperTruck. With its aggressive aero features and unconventional styling left many jaws agape. Comments like “look at those side skirts, blow a tire behind those things and it’s going to be expensive” weren’t uncommon. But isn’t that what concepts are all about? Make it pretty then make it practical. The process of going from an artist rendering of Freightliner’s Revolution truck to having a tangible product took a year and a half, but Maik Ziegler, Daimler Trucks’ director of advanced engineering, NAFTA, says that timeframe can vary from project to project. “With SuperTruck, we have a target of 50 percent improvement of freight efficiency (over 2007 baselines),” he says. “Fifty percent is a big number, so the government gave us five years.” The accomplishments for this concept truck are very impressive. Fuel economy over 12 mpg sustained in a real world test as a result of its more than 50 percent improvement in aerodynamics drag. That’s just a start. Navistar had its own take on aerodynamic drag. Instead of full wheel covering skirts, it chose to make fenders and hub caps to add a significant wind resistance reduction. “It’s a litmus test as ‘this is our vision,’ and it kind of validates if we’re going in the right direction or not. “There is a lot of value in customer feedback. We have a lot of smart people here at Navistar but we need to make sure that we 8

validate with people who will actually use the product” said Chris Ito, director of innovation and design for Navistar. Peterbilt’s Walmart Advanced Vehicle Experience (WAVE) truck is a concept in every definition of the word. Designed and built in collaboration with the world’s largest retailer and trailer manufacturer Great Dane, WAVE features an aggressive teardrop design, and is powered by a fuel-neutral turbine engine that can run on diesel, gasoline, natural gas, DME, hydrogen and other biofuels. The truck and trailer were designed to improve aerodynamics by 20 percent over conventional models. Bill Kahn, manager of advanced concepts with Peterbilt, says the WAVE truck was the company’s attempt to find significant efficiency gains in an area where the low hanging fruit has long-since been harvested. Realizing that significant gains weren’t going to come from simple tweaks in aero-design, Kahn’s team set out to design a new model from the ground up. “We really wanted to come out and see what it would take to get a double-digit gain in fuel efficiency,” he says, “and what would that look like?” Walmart and Peterbilt wanted an advanced powertrain but concluded, efficiency-wise, a standard diesel engine had been pushed about as far as it could go. It’s not just the outer skin of these new concept trucks that is what is new. Besides the improvements in engine power to move them, changes to the ideas of what will fuel them to reduce carbon footprints and technology to have the truck drive itself are all on the table. Bendix brought to the table a way to have the truck read speed limit signs and react to bring the truck within preselected parameters. Bendix has been working for years and has been successful in stabilization controls. May / June 2015

Technology and Aerodynamics

‘‘ There is a project in Canada that is aiming to make crossing railway tracks for commercial vehicles perfectly safe. The vision here is to have the signal mechanism at every rail crossing emit a radio signal that will be recognized by the truck’s computer and then give an audible warning to the driver there is a train about to cross the road. If the driver doesn’t react in a specified amount of time, then the truck itself applies the brakes so the truck stops well short of the tracks preventing a truck train collision. Yes, this is just in the idea stage. The final product may not look or act like what is described here, but there is thinking going on to prevent truck train collisions of which in Canada there are some 40 per year. In the US, the number is significantly more. Computer and camera technology is going to be a much larger part of the driving experience as time goes by. In one person’s lifetime we will have gone from trucks that were little more than buckboards with engines that were difficult to manage; hard to steer; under powered; and slow to complicated machines that are more computer than truck and needing little or no moni12

Technology and Aerodynamics toring by the operator. Driver is fast becoming a nomenclature that no one will recognize in the next generation but Safety Engineer will be the new driver where the Safety Engineer monitors all of the systems of the vehicles moving our freight around the world, without collisions or even a danger to anyone with whom they may come in close proximity. We’re not there yet, of course, but there is at least progress towards the goal of having no one killed or injured simply doing their job. Roads where collisions are a thing of the past. Integrated transportation systems that not matter the methodology will be able to communicate with each other and prevent incidents before they even become evident. The world’s economies run on energy. Choosing the next big energy source and being right is the challenge for the future. That one person who has seen so many changes in one lifetime has gone from witnessing horses provide motive power for transportation and agriculture to those futuristic visions that have been discussed above. The question isn’t so much as to what these trucks will do and how they’ll operate. It’s how will the next generation of driver drive. Will the driver simply be a person who rides along to do the bullwork – lower landing gear, hook up air connections, do pre and post trip inspections? Will there be any steering responsibility? Will the driver simply have to wipe off the truck’s cameras periodically to ensure it can see where it’s going? Will drivers need to know how to back into a dock or is a computer much better suited to handle that task?

Technology and Aerodynamics Also questions like – if the truck is self-driving and the driver is simply a monitor and not a decision maker, if and when the computer fails will the human driver be “at fault” or will it be the computer programmer that created the software to drive the truck? Will there be court cases that will determine the validity of the human driver? Will there be a need for hours of service legislation to prevent tired driving? Will shippers demand delivery times without accommodation for the human factor? Will there be a need for recovery vehicles to support the trucking industry? Will snow and ice covered roads interfere with computer driven trucks? While advances in technology are welcomed it is the questions in the way the humans monitoring these systems isn’t being addressed, at least not openly and the thought process must be part and parcel of the concepts.

Where has All the Equipment Gone?

Where Has All the Equipment Gone?

- Pash Brar B.A.

ik`Qy clw igAw swrw smwn?


s seasons change, so does trucking. With improved weather and road conditions in spring and summer, trucking awakes from its winter hibernation. With the busier season ahead, companies seek out new equipment to meet their increased load demand. But this year there is a very high demand for equipment. So high in fact, that a lot of equipment has been sold out across North America and factories are backed up many months trying to fill the orders. There are still options to explore while one waits for equipment to become available One option is to make do with what you have. If it’s a company driver waiting to become a first time lease operator, keep driving the company truck while you wait for equipment to arrive. If you’re a company, perhaps hire a lease operator to make up for the extra loads while you wait. But it’s important to keep working and try to meet demands from clients if you choose to wait it out. Too much money will be lost if you wait and do nothing. Buying used is a viable option for some. Some will do this if they can find something decent but others are adamant and want new trucks and trailers only. Everyone has a preference. One suggestion is to order the equipment you want, and in the mean time utilize used equipment to meet your load demand and not have to turn away work. Not doing the work at all will lose too much money while you wait for your order. Some high demand equipment is backed up 8-10 months. So something used now is better than nothing at all in some cases. If you still want new, then trade in the used equipment later when the new equipment arrives. Speak to your local dealerships about used options on their lot and future trade ins coming in to tide you over. If you don’t want to wait months for your custom order, you can look at what the dealerships have coming available in the future stock. Right now, if you wait for equipment to arrive, most of it is pre-sold before it even arrives. If you wait for it to arrive, it is already too late. If you wait to think about it, someone will come in and put a deposit on the piece of equipment you may have been thinking about, and again it’s too late. My advice is go ask your local dealership what they have and if anything is available for your type of work, put a deposit down right away. Go to the dealership with your cheque book or credit card ready. If you change your mind later, a refund can be arranged for your deposit in most situations. - Pash Brar B.A. Pash is a mobile leasing representative with Auto One Leasing LP in Vancouver.

Where has All the Equipment Gone? In some cases a compromise can be the answer. You may have your heart set on a certain brand, but that particular brand is sold out for many months. There may be other brands that do have availability. Only some, but not all manufacturers are behind in production. Do you lose that work and wait, or are you willing to go look at other brands and competitors who may have something available? Some companies only stick to one brand and one brand only, but you never know, perhaps another brand may offer some options for you, even if only temporary. If anything, it’s good to go out and learn about all the different brand names out there, and you may be pleasantly surprised by changes in price, options and fuel economy between the brands Ask lots of questions and speak to others currently using the brand. Keep an open mind even if you decide not to stray from your brand. Product knowledge is always a great thing to have. Call your local dealership about doing a back up offer. Sometimes deals fall through. Maybe a company ordered too many, and don’t need all that was ordered. Sometimes the financing falls through. Sometimes there’s a change in mind and even credit cards can get declined on the deposit. Whatever the reason, if a deal falls through and you have put a deposit on some equipment as a back up, you have a chance at getting that equipment until it leaves the lot. If you are not successful, then the dealership will refund your deposit. If you don’t try, you cannot succeed, so if you need something fast, keep trying with back-ups. It’s also important to check with the manufacturer to see if any changes have been made at the production level. Manufacturers may have increased their production to meet the higher demand in their products. With increased production, comes a faster turnover and you may get your equipment sooner than expected. So if you had decided not to order because the wait was too long and it was hopeless, and now suddenly the wait time has decreased, you may have lost out on opportunity. Manufacturers also may receive cancelled orders. If there’s a cancellation, that opens up slots in production for your order to get made faster. So keep checking in and adjust yourself as production adjusts to achieve a higher efficiency rate for your business. I know a lot of people are frustrated with record equipment sales level right now across North America as they want equipment that just isn’t available to them right at the moment. Try the methods mentioned and always keep in touch with your local dealerships, manufacturers and others in trucking. Sometimes you may stumble on equipment just through who you know. Keep checking with dealerships and manufacturers for upcoming availability and ask what deals may not go through. Be open to all avenues and if a dealership knows you are a serious buyer, you will be notified for anything available. In this high demand market i think the most important thing is that money talks. The first to put the money down will get the item. Those that think and wait are going to lose, so if you know you want something have your wallet ready. 18

Estate Planning

Estate Planning jwiedwd sbMDI Xojnw


often get asked by clients, what is estate planning and why do I need it? Estate planning is the process of determining and implementing the most efficient way to transfer your assets to the next generation. Period. It involves looking at your personal, family, and financial picture to determine your current needs and future objectives, and then drawing a roadmap of how to get there. The biggest mistake that people make when it comes to estate planning is to assume that they do not need to plan. There is a misconception that estate planning is only for the well-off, or that you need to have a complex estate to require one. Nothing could be further from the truth. Whether you have a young family or a small estate, the legal and financial issues affecting your estate will apply regardless. For example, take a young family. A primary concern will be determining who will look after their young children in the event that something happens to both parents. In addition, families will need to determine who will manage the children’s wealth. Lastly, they will need to make sure that in the event of an untimely death, there is enough money left to make sure they live comfortably. As for the size of an estate, whether small or large, the legal and taxation issues that arise are similar. Even small investments, such as a rental property or stocks or bonds, require carefully planning to ensure that the legal and tax issues are minimized. More so, each family has different desires and wishes for the next generation, whether they are to pass on a family business, or to ensure that there is enough for the family in the unlikely event of an early death. They are based on a person’s family and individual needs and desires, and need to be carefully planned for and addressed. Whether based on the financial picture, or the family relationships, each family is unique. Likewise, estate and financial objectives will differ from person to person. So why do you need an estate plan? Estate planning will allow you to plan for your family and your objectives. It will address legal and tax consequences, if any, and will create a plan that works for you. Most importantly, estate planning will provide you with peace of mind knowing that your legacy is well protected. 20

Cummins looks into the future

Cummins looks into the future A

t the inaugural press conference at the 2015 Mid-America Trucking Show, Cummins offered a sneak-peek at its 2017 greenhouse gas engine technology. Details are thin but Srikanth Padmanabhan, vice president of the company’s engine business noted that the ISX15 will feature enhancements including a more efficient turbocharger and reduced parasitic energy loss. The engine will be offered in distinct designs optimized for either performance or fuel economy. Power ratings will range from 400 to 605 horsepower. Cummins will also offer new technology downstream from the engine. A new single-module exhaust after-treatment system will also debut in 2017. Srikanth says the new system is an evolutionary design that leverages both customer input as well as Cummins Filtrations’ acquired after-treatment expertise. The system will be 60 percent smaller and 40 percent lighter than current after-treatment systems and will use new catalytic materials and DPF dosing methods to achieve reliable emissions compliance.

New Sleeper configurations for Kenworth T680 and T880

New Sleeper configurations for Kenworth T680 and T880


enworth announced at the 2015 Mid-America Trucking Show in Louisville, KY., the launch of a new 76-inch mid-roof sleeper for its T680 and T880. Full production is expected to start in the fall. Kenworth general manager and Paccar vice president Preston Feight says “the 76-inch mid-roof sleeper is optimized for liquid bulk tankers, flatbed haulers and operators looking for a lighter weight, more aerodynamic truck with all the driver comforts of a full-height sleeper. “The mid-roof sleeper provides 100-pound weight savings when compared to Kenworth’s 76-inch high-roof sleeper and up to a 5 percent fuel economy savings for tanker and flatbed applications, depending on load conditions. “For many truck operators, obtaining additional payload capacity can make a big difference in potential profit. The efficient mid-roof design has lower drag, and provides a reduction in fuel expenses.” Kenworth’s 76-inch mid-roof sleeper features a liftable lower bunk and side storage towers, including hanging storage for drivers to store their clothes. A bunk for team drivers or a back wall sleeper storage unit is also available as an option, as is a factory-installed Kenworth Idle Management System. LED lighting is also used heavily throughout. With the new addition, the T680 can be specified in 76-inch mid- and high-roof sleepers, 52-inch mid-roof sleeper and day cab. Kenworth’s T880, the 2015 ATD Commercial Truck of the Year, can be specified in day cab, 52-inch sleeper and 76-inch mid-roof sleeper configurations.

Hendrickson announces Disc Brakes for Trailers

Hendrickson announces Disc Brakes for Trailers


ccording the Perry Bahr, vice president and general manager, Hendrickson Trailer Commercial Vehicle Systems launched the new MAXX22T being the first — and only — air disc brake system for trailers in North America today. Bahr noted that while trailer disc brakes are popular in Europe — and Hendrickson manufactures brakes for that market — the particular needs of the North American market caused Hendrickson to develop the MAXX22T specifically for fleets on this side of the Atlantic. The new brake system was developed in conjunction with WABCO and uses that company’s bi-directional single piston design with Hendrickson’s wheel end and brake components. The new system, Bahr says, results in a high reliability design with reduced weight and installation efficiency. Other MAXX22T features include a bolt-on splash guard that allows easy rotor inspection, a 20,000 pound gross axle weight and is compatible with Hendrickson’s TIREMAAX PRO and any Ready-To-Roll wheel end package.

Wingman Fusion introduced by Bendix

Wingman Fusion introduced by Bendix


uring one of the many press conferences at the 2015 MidAmerica Trucking Show in Louisville, Ky., Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems announced its new Bendix Wingman Fusion, the company’s next generation in active safety systems. Wingman Fusion integrates three of the company’s existing component technologies — Bendix ESP Electronic Stability Program fullstability system, Bendix Wingman Advanced collision mitigation technology and AutoVue lane departure warning system – into a single driver assistance system. By combining these components and having multiple sensors sharing situational data, Wingman Fusion offers driver assistance with lane departure warning, overspeed alerts and action, following distance alerts with enhanced collision mitigation and stationary vehicle braking. Bendix Wingman Fusion can reduce the vehicle’s speed up to twice as much in a potential collision situation when compared to nonintegrated systems. “A fleet can buy separate radar and camera systems right now, but what it comes down to is the integration of the data,” said TJ Thomas, director of marketing and customer solutions for Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems. “This next-generation camera talks to the next-generation radar that talks to the next-generation braking system in a way that isn’t in our industry today.” Wingman Fusion can deliver five different alerts to the driver, however the system prioritizes alerts depending on the situation. For example, if it detects a lane departure and an unsafe following distance, the system deems the potential collision as the most critical event and issues a collision alert to the driver rather than distracting or confusing him with multiple alerts. Wingman Fusion’s new stationary vehicle braking technology uses both radar and camera data to confirm a stopped vehicle ahead and warns the driver up to 3.5 seconds before impact and automatically engages the brakes if the driver doesn’t take action. 26

Wingman Fusion introduced by Bendix The new overspeed alert and action feature is activated at 37 mph and works with Bendix ESP. It uses the system’s camera to automatically read posted speed signs and compares the speed limit to the truck’s current speed. It then issues an audible alert if the truck is more than 5 mph over the posted speed limit. If the truck is more than 10 mph over the speed limit, Wingman Fusion provides an audible alert as well a one-second engine throttle reduction to get the drivers attention. Bendix says fleets can modify these thresholds depending on their individual speed parameters. Bendix SafetyDirect also will capture a video of the event and transmit it to the fleet’s safety operations for driver coaching. Wingman Fusion is available to all major North American manufacturers of Class 8 trucks for integration into their vehicle platforms and is initially available on the International ProStar. “The need for comprehensive, proactive driver training and safe, alert drivers practicing safe driving habits cannot be replaced by any technology, no matter how advanced,” said Thomas. “But during Wingman Fusion’s extensive testing and demonstration, fleets and drivers regularly provided incredibly positive feedback on the system’s potential for helping to improve fleet operations, driver education, and – what matters to us all the most – highway safety.”

Could the Tides be Turning for Trucking? To remain profitable, it is imperative for trucking companies to know what regions are seeing an increase in freight availability and where there is an overabundance in available capacity—these volumes regularly fluctuate. The first part of 2015 has seen a decline in the Canadian dollar and a drop in oil prices. If we take a look at quarter one 2015 and compare it to the latter part of 2014, the trend in load volumes are similar. Capacity has also remained relatively tight for the past 15 months but could the tides be turning now?

total, an increase of two percent compared to February. Outbound load volumes decreased 21 percent and inbound loads were down 20 percent year-over-year. Intra-Canada load volumes represented 23 percent of the total volumes, a decrease of three percent compared to February and 26 percent year-over-year.

Every month, TransCore Link Logistics releases the Canadian Freight Index that defines the freight movement spot market. TransCore’s Canadian Freight Index accurately measures trends from roughly 5,000 of Canada’s trucking companies and freight brokers, and includes all domestic, cross-border and interstate data submitted by Loadlink’s Canadian-based customers.

Equipment capacity increased in March and was observed for trucks going in and out of Canada, as well as within Canada. Postings for truck availability increased 16 percent month-over-month and 29 percent year-over-year. The equipment-toload ratio increased to 1.95 from 1.90 in February and from 1.17 compared to March 2014.

TransCore’s Canadian Freight Volumes Close First Quarter of 2015 on a High TransCore Link Logistics Canadian Freight Index volumes for the first quarter of 2015 peaked in March surpassing February volumes by 13 percent and closing the first quarter on a high. Year-over-year load volumes, however, fell 23 percent compared to 2014.

Detailed information on specific states, provinces, equipment types and loads, real-time and historical data can be accessed from TransCore’s Posting Index. Use it to get complete information that is of interest to your company on total truck and load volumes, as well as current and historical truck-to-load ratios in specific areas.

First quarter 2015 volumes mirrored total volumes in fourth quarter 2014 and were comparatively flat between quarters. Yet, first quarter volumes were down 20 percent compared to the same period last year. This expected decline was driven by 2014’s extraordinary high volumes.

To view detailed information on Posting Index, visit: To keep current, the Canadian Freight Index can be viewed by visiting:

The distribution of cross-border loads coming into Canada to Ontario, Western, Quebec and Atlantic regions remained unchanged for the first part of the year. However, regional shifts leaving Canada fluctuated in Western, Ontario and Quebec regions. Cross-border load volumes averaged 73 percent of the May / June 2015

PRI AYNf sikaur tRyf pRogrwm NSC Compliance Services

What is FAST? FAST stands for Free and Secure Trade. It is a commercial clearance program for known low risk shipments that cross between the U.S, Canada and Mexico. When did this program start? The initial phase of the FAST program began in December 2002 and was initiated after 9/11. Is it mandatory to be registered in the FAST program? It is not mandatory for a commercial driver to be enrolled in the FAST program to cross border but there are several benefits for the driver to be registered. There are more than 78,000 commercial drivers that are enrolled in the FAST program. What are the benefits of the FAST program? If you are part of the FAST program then you will benefit from the following: - Access to dedicated lanes for greater speed and efficiency in processing trans-border shipments; - Reduced number of inspections resulting in reduced delays at the border; - Priority, front-of-the-line processing for CBP inspections; and, - Enhanced supply chain security while promoting the economic prosperity of the U.S, Canada and Mexico. What are FAST eligible goods? In order to qualify for the streamlined FAST process, goods imported must meet these conditions: - They must not be prohibited, controlled or regulated importations as set out in any act of Parliament or provincial/state legislation; - They must not be subject to the release requirements of any other government department; and - They must be shipped directly to Canada from the continental United States or Mexico. How many ports have FAST lane access? There are 17 ports on the northern border connecting to Canada and 17 on the southern border connecting to Mexico. The majority of dedicated FAST lanes are located in northern 42

Peterbilt chooses fuel efficiency and aerodynamics for 579


eterbilt Motors introduced enhancements to its Model 579 EPIQ it says can improve fuel efficiency up to 14 percent. In additon, the company announced new models or expanded versions of existing models, including improvements in its natural gas-powered offerings. The 579 EPIQ’s fuel gains come from aerodynamics, drivetrain, tire pressure monitoring and automatically generated driver performance tips, said Chief Engineer Scott Newhouse during the Mid-America Trucking Show. He detailed some key elements: • A roof fairing bridge that reduces the gap between truck and trailer; • Enhanced chassis fairings that minimize the opening in front of the tandem axle; • Rubber wheel closeouts on the front axle; • A bumper dam that reduces aerodynamic lift and drag; and • A bumper-to-hood seal that redirects air around the truck. “The Model 579 is the most aerodynamic truck in Peterbilt’s 75-year history and when configured with the EPIQ package, it takes fuel economy to even greater levels,” said Darrin Siver, Peterbilt General Manager. Peterbilt added a new 58-inch sleeper for its Model 579 in low- and midroof configurations, ideal for weight conscious short- and regional-haul operations. The new sleeper, entering production during the fourth quarter, reduces weight by up to 100 pounds (versus the 80-inch sleeper) while including all of the amenities found on Peterbilt’s larger sleepers. The new sleeper includes a full-length door to help facilitate loading personal gear and belongings. Full-length, integrated extenders to minimize trailer gap and improve aerodynamic efficiency. Other features include a television mount, refrigerator and microwave shelf. Peterbilt launched a new set-forward front axle configuration for its flagship vocational Model 567 that is ideal for mixer and other weight-conscious applications. Like the set-back axle version, the Model 567 SFFA is available in both 115- and 121-inch BBC lengths. The 115-inch BBC has a bumper to front axle distance of 29 inches and the 121-inch BBC has a bumper to front axle distance of 31 inches. Peterbilt introduced two new medium-duty vehicles powered by compressed natural 46

Peterbilt choose fuel efficiency and aerodynamics for 579 gas: the Model 337 and the Model 348. Both vehicles are now in production and can be configured as trucks or tractors. They are optimized for configuration with 110-inch BBCs. Newhouse said the optimized spec, including steering geometry that provides up to a 50 degree turning angle, provides improved maneuverability in congested operations. Both the Models 348 and 337 are powered by the Cummins Westport ISL-G with 320 horsepower and 1,000 lb.-ft. of torque. Peterbilt introduced its Models 579 and 567 in liquified natural gas configurations, available as daycabs. Production is scheduled for June. Both trucks are powered by the Cummins-Westport ISX12 G with up to 400 horsepower and 1,450 lb.-ft. of torque. “Peterbilt is the industry’s natural gas leader with the largest market share, most experience and broadest, most versatile product lineup,” said Robert Woodall, assistant general manager of sales and marketing. ik in`jI smwn nMU l`dx leI bhuq shweI huMdw hY[pUrI lMbweI vwLy AYkstYNfr swml hn jo ik tRylr dy gYp nMu G`t krdy hn Aqy eyArofwienYimks smr`Qw nMU vDwauNdy hn[ hor PIcrW ‘c tYlIivzn mWaut, Pir`j Aqy mweIkrovyv SYlP Swml hn[ pItriblt ny Awpxy pRmu`K mwfl 567 leI nvIN sY`t-Pwrvrf PrMt AYksl kniPgrySn pyS kIqI hY jo ik imksrW Aqy hor BwrsMquln kMmW leI iblkul shI hY[ sY`t-bYk AYksl pRqIrUp dI qrHW mwfl 567 SFFA vI donHW hI 115 qy 121-ieMc BBC lMbweI ‘c auplBD hY[ 115-ieMc BBC dw bMpr qoN lY ky mUhrly AYksl q`k dw Pwslw 29 ieMc hY Aqy 121-ieMc BBC dw bMpr qoN lY ky mUhrly AYksl q`k dw Pwslw 31 ieMc hY[ pItriblt ny do nvyN mIfIAm ifautI vhIkl mwfl 337 Aqy 348 pyS kIqy hn jo kMprY`sf nYcrl gYs nwL cldy hn[dono hI vhIkl hux inrmwx ADIn hn ijnHW nMU tr`k jW tRYktr, iksy dw vI rUp id`qw jw skdw hY[ auh 110-ieMc BBCs nwl koeI vI pRqIrUp lYx dy AnuswrI hn[ inaUhwaUs ny ikhw ik ieh ies styAirMg ryKw gixq nwl AwauNdw hY jo ik 50 ifgrI q`k hor moV k`t skdw hY Aqy ijhVw BIV BV`ky vwLIAW QwvW ‘qy bhuq PwiedymMd hY [ 348 Aqy 337 dovyN hI mwfl kimnz dy 320 hwrspwvr Aqy 1000 lb.-ft tOrk vwLy vYstport ISL-G nwL cldy hn pItriblt ny Awpxy mwfl 579 Aqy 567 ilkuAfPweIf nYcrl gYs bnwvt vwLy pyS kIqy hn jo fykYb vjoN auplBD hn[ ienHW dw auqpwdn jUn ‘c SurU krn dw PYslw kIqw igAw hY[ donW hI tr`kW nMu clwaux leI 400 hwrspwvr Aqy 1,450 lb.-ft tOrk vwLy kimnz-vYstport ISX12G dI vrqoN kIqI geI hY[ sylz Aqy mwrkIitMg dy AisstYNt jnrl mYnyjr rObrt vu`fAwl dw kihxw hY, “pitriblt sB qoN v`D mwrikt SyAr hox krky, sB qoN izAwdw Aqy ivSwl qzrbw, ‘qy bhuguxI pRofkt lweInA`p nwL ieMfstrI dy nYcrl gYs lIfr hn”[ May / June 2015


Auto Review



RAM 1500 EcoDiesel


he pick-up/light truck category has shown some tremendous growth in the last ten years. More than ever, trucks are becoming hybrid-functional vehicles – use for work during the day and a night out during the evening. With Ford coming out with an all-aluminum body for the F150, Dodge had to be innovative so that it didn’t get left behind. Thus, last year, the Ram 1500 became the first light-duty truck to be fitted with a diesel powerplant, and most of us loved this option. Now add the class-exclusive Active-Level Four Corner Air Suspension, Multi-Link coil spring rear suspension, and In-floor Storage system, and you’ve got a great truck. For 2015, the Ram remains mostly unchanged from the 2014 model, with the exception of some minor cosmetic upgrades. It’s a great looking truck, and in my humble opinion, neck-andneck with the F150 as the best looking truck on the market. My cousin, who owns a GMC Sierra, took offence to my top choices and I explained that the Ram and F150 have a more aggressive look, and thus, my personal favourites; my reasoning still didn’t satisfy him, though. Even though the Ram 1500 is the baby of the Ram-series, make no mistake, it’s still a big truck, and based on your cab and box configuration, it can become a behemoth pretty quickly. Some of the things I really like include the front grille, projector headlamps and the RamBox Management System, which makes storage 48

in the streamlined box area quite simple. On the inside, depending on your trim of choice, the cabin can be mistaken for that of a large luxury sedan. Supple Jag Dhatt leather seats, leather steering wheel and trim, and all the bells and whistles you can hope for with respect to technology, convenience, and safety. I’ve said it before; nowadays, almost every vehicle can configured with all the features that were only available in luxury cars, and these options are now available in trucks. Yes, trucks are no longer just your industrial workhorses and the Ram 1500’s interior is a great balance of workspace and luxury. Where the Ram 1500 really shines is under the hood, where the fitted EcoDiesel powerplant is the same one found in the Jeep Grand Cherokee. Fire up this baby and you’ll feel a slight rumbling in the floor boards, thanks to the 3.0-liter turbo diesel motor. While power is only a mild 240 horses, the EcoDiesel puts out an impressive 420 lb-ft of torque, all while delivering surprisingly great fuel economy. Dodge states that regardless of powerplant, the Ram series have the best highway fuel economy in its class. Stomp on the gas pedal and the 7,000 pound truck really moves; the only real hiccup is the minor turbo lag, but it’s only at low rpms. At cruising speeds, I found passing to be a breeze. The Ram 1500’s ride is quite comfortable, thanks to the classMay / June 2015

2015 Dodge RAM 1500 Eco Diesel exclusive air suspension. Matched with the 20” tire and wheel package on our Laramie test vehicle, at times, we forgot we were riding in a truck. There’s minimal body roll under regular driving conditions and the suspension soaks up all road imperfections. Steering, for a truck of this size is also quite good. I could see myself taking my family in this vehicle on long road trips. In fact, one of my friends, who just got back from California in his 2014 EcoDiesel Laramie, said he loved the ride and comfort of the truck. The Ram 1500 EcoDiesel is not the most budget-friendly truck when it comes to initial investment. Sure, the diesel option will set you back an extra $4,500 compared to the base V6, but make the upgrade. With its high torque, great looks, tonnes of interior space, and impressive cab and cabin options, the Ram 1500 EcoDiesel is definitely worth it.

Volvo details new initiatives

Volvo details new initiatives M

arch 26, Volvo launched several new initiatives at the Mid-America Trucking Show in Louisville, KY., including a specialized I-Shift automated transmission for severe duty applications and a new Adaptive Loading System based around an automatically-controlled 6×2 liftable forward axle. In Canada, this will take either a government modification to existing rules and regulations to allow it or Volvo will not sell this 6X2 configuration in Canada. Volvo Remote Diagnostics service will be expanded in April to monitor critical fault codes on the Volvo I-Shift automated manual transmission according to Wade Long, Volvo’s director of product marketing for North America. “Vehicle uptime is arguably the highest priority for our customers because trucks benefit their owners only if they are moving,” said Göran Nyberg, president of Volvo Trucks North America. “While technology such as Remote Diagnostics is a key element of our uptime services, we believe that a strong dealer network and knowledgeable, diligent Volvo aftermarket support personnel are critical as well.” Volvo also introduced Adaptive Loading, a new 6×2 liftable forward axle that automatically adjusts to load weight changes and offers 4×2 operation under certain conditions. Volvo demonstrated Adaptive Loading at the 2015 Mid-America Trucking Show. Key benefits of Adaptive Loading include greater fuel efficiency, improved traction, lower maintenance costs and increased driver productivity. Adaptive Loading is ideal for bulk haul or general freight operations where the truck goes out loaded and returns empty and for diminishing-load applications. “As our customers continually strive to reduce operating costs and increase productivity, we must deliver solutions tailored to their specific applications,” Nyberg noted. “For many operations that run empty or lightly loaded much of the time, Adaptive Loading is an innovative way to change the truck’s configuration on the fly for maximum efficiency.” Long said “To further enhance fuel efficiency gains, customers selecting Adaptive Loading can choose one of Volvo’s XE – eXceptional Efficiency – powertrain packages, including XE Adaptive Gearing and XE Economy. XE powertrain packages improve fuel efficiency by lowering engine rpm at a given 50

Volvo details new initiatives vehicle speed, a concept Volvo calls ‘downspeeding.’ Many customers selecting Adaptive Loading will find XE Adaptive Gearing a great choice as well because it is designed to benefit applications that go out loaded and return empty, customers can magnify their fuel savings by optimizing both suspension and powertrain specs.” XE Adaptive Gearing, available as an option since the beginning of the year, operates in direct drive when loaded and in overdrive when empty. Like other 6×2 setups, Adaptive Loading improves fuel efficiency compared with traditional 6×4 configurations, which have two drive axles. The non-drive axle, which is in the forward position of the tandem axles, helps distribute load weight without the internal gearing of a drive axle, lowering weight and reducing

internal friction. The reduced weight – more than 300 pounds compared with a 6×4 – enables a greater payload. The liftable forward axle and Volvo’s Electronically Controlled Suspension (ECS) technology offer additional fuel efficiency benefits. Adaptive Loading and Volvo’s current 6×2 option both use ECS to dynamically transfer weight among the two axles. In Adaptive Loading, ECS – based on pre-programmed weight thresholds – automatically lifts the axle in empty or lightload situations to create a 4×2 configuration, which reduces rolling resistance from tires. Other benefits cited by Long include lower maintenance costs, improved driver productivity and improved traction in slippery road conditions or on grades.

Navistar makes ONCommand free and standard

Navistar makes OnCommand free and standard T

he OnCommand Connection remote diagnostics system from Navistar will now be free and standard on all 2007 and newer model International trucks, the company announced at the Mid-America Trucking Show in Louisville. It no longer will be charging a monthly fee for the service, and it will be giving new OnCommand subscribers what they call a “telematics credit” — a stipend of sorts fleets can use to buy hardware and data service for a fleet telematics system. Michael Cancelliere, Navistar’s senior vice president for global parts and custom service, said at the company’s annual MATS press briefing “that 80 percent of trucks on the road are not equipped with a telematics system, something Navistar sees as its opportunity and obligation to fix.” Cancelliere further asserts that OnCommand does not trap fleet managers into one telematics hardware or software provider, as the system works with nearly all telematics suppliers. The credit can be used on base model telematics hardware and two years of data service on International vehicles upon activiation of OnCommand, starting July 2015. Navistar does not yet have a firm dollar amount on how much it will provide, but will have more details in the coming months. The OnCommand fee waiver and the telematics credit are part of the company’s recent “Uptime” efforts, announced earlier this year Navistar says its focus now from manufacturing through a vehicle’s life is to limit downtime with two basic tenets: Keep trucks out of the shop through quality builds, but also to limit dwell time when trucks do need repairs. “Delivering industry-leading levels of uptime to our customers is more than just building a line of trucks that stay on the road longer,” said Bill Kozek, president truck and parts at Navistar. “The ‘Uptime’ mission at International is our commitment to technology, innovation, tools and services that allow our customers to keep moving forward.” International also announced at the show enhancements to its new International ProStar ES (efficiency spec) and that it is the first truck maker to offer Bendix’ new Wingman Fusion active safety system, also unveiled at MATS. Updates to the ProStar ES include availability of Cummins’ new ADEPT powertrain, which includes SmartTorque2 and SmartCoast, announced earlier this week by Cummins at the show. The ADEPT is centerpieced by the Cummins ISX15 and uses a suite of advanced electronic features that allow the engine to interact with automated-manual transmissions. It also employs Cummins’ SmartCoast. These features are also available on non-ES ProStar models powered by the Cummins ISX15. The ProStar ES also is available with Navistar’s proprietary N13 engine, coupled with the Eaton Fuller Advantage automated-manual transmission. 52

Why stainless alloy? With stainless you have no chrome peeling, no rusting & no chipping! The only choice is to replace or to re-chrome when chrome plated exhaust dull or fade. it is expensive and time consuming and absolutely not a very good scenario if you depend on your equipment to make your living; stainless can be repolished to look new again in matter of hours even at home with small polisher; with chrome plated mild steel tubing rust starts inside day 1; with stainless NO RUST!

Chrome plated steel tubing and chrome steel clamps rust will form behind the clamp, with the salt and chemicals used on highways these can spell havoc on your costly chrome steel exhaust system. Stainless can be brought back to like new appearance, the same as your stainless air cleaners, cab skirts, quarter fenders and polished sun visors. These products unless damaged last the life of your equipment and because of our volume buying power on stainless steel and volume sales we produce this exhaust at and most times below the cost of cold rolled mild steel chrome plated exhaust tubing and pass these savings to you.

Shell/AirFlow set to design new fuel efficient vehicle

Shell/AirFlow set to design new fuel efficient vehicle


t a press briefing, March 26th, at the recent Mid-America Trucking Show in Louisville, KY, Shell Lubricants announced it has partnered with AirFlow Truck Company to develop a hyper-fuel-efficient Class 8 truck and trailer concept vehicle. Dubbed the StarShip, the concept truck centres on aerodynamics the aim of which is to develop a design that bucks trends in conventional truck design was the message from AirFlow President Bob Sliwa. Complete cross country fuel economy tests with truck and trailer are scheduled for 2017. Initial designs for the StarShip call for the truck and trailer to be joined as a single, integrated unit, ridding it of the truck and trailer gap — a significant source of aerodynamic drag. It will also be outfitted with a newly designed hood, side skirts, front end and custom interior. Some of the truck’s elements will retract under 35 mph, the companies said. AirFlow and Shell will not be relying on aerodynamics alone to achieve the fuel economy benefits being sought. The StarShip will be powered by advanced engine and drivetrain technology, also. Shell says it will be offering technical consultation on engine and drivetrain components and, of course, the lubricants the StarShip will need. Sliwa has been morphing trucks to his liking since the 1980s, when as an owner-operator he took his own cabover and reshaped the hood to reduce aero drag. Sliwa and AirFlow also built the Bullet Truck, unveiled in 2012. Sliwa used a Kenworth T2000 as the base for that project.

CVSA ROAD CHECK 2015 on June 2 - 4


he annual 72-hour inspection blitz is the largest targeted enforcement effort on commercial vehicles in the world. It is a joint effort of the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration and Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration, Canadian Council of Motor Transport Administrators, Transport Canada and the Secretariat of CommunicationsJune and Transportation (Mexico). This year CVSA specifically noted it would be checking medical certificates on the roadside. Recent changes in the regulation have truck drivers wondering whether they should carry their medical cards with them. “So the CDL/driving record should reflect that the drivers are in compliance,” Steve Keppler, executive director for CVSA, said. Keppler“However, we have heard about a number of instances where (for several reasons) problems are being experienced in the field, so we recommend that drivers still carry their medical certificate just to be safe.” The Unified Carrier Registration program requires individuals and companies that operate commercial vehicles to register their business and pay an annual fee, due at the end of the year, based on the size of their fleet. Keppler said that if the UCR fee has not been paid, it is “a state-by-state decision” on whether to allow trucks back on the road without paying the fee on the spot. He added that failure to pay a UCR fee “is not an out-of-service condition.” Is your MCS-150 biennial report updated? This is another area that will be examined by enforcement during Roadcheck 2015. If you are a motor carrier, you must update your FMCSA business snapshot every two years using the MCS150 form. “FMCSA has implemented a regulation that will deactivate a motor carrier’s registration for not filing its MCS-150 report as required,” Keppler said. Keppler said Roadcheck will also focus on cargo securement. “The proper loading and securing of cargo on vehicles is a matter of public safety,” according to a CVSA release. May / June 2015

The company also announced a partnership with Canadian telematics firm Isaac Instruments. “OnCommand Connection demonstrates our commitment to uptime and our Canadian customers while proving our ability to be the integration leader,” said Mike Cerilli, vice-president and general manager, Navistar Connected Vehicle Business. “We are excited to have Isaac on board, and we are working with even more telematics providers in Canada to provide customers the solutions they need.” OnCommand Connection works with a fleet’s own telematics provider to pull diagnostic-related data and provide vehicle “health reports.” It reduces downtime by warning fleet operators of impending issues and providing input on how to handle them. “The prompt, clear description of vehicle fault codes we receive from OnCommand Connec-

tion allows the maintenance staff to communicate with drivers, prevent equipment damage and maintain high customer satisfaction levels,” said Jim Pinder, corporate fleet director, Erb Group of Companies. As in the US, International trucks will come with OnCommand Connection as a standard, no-charge feature, the company announced. It can also be retrofit in model year 2007 and newer International trucks using a partner telematics system. Additionally, the company will offer a credit for base model telematics hardware and two years of data service on International branded vehicles upon activation of OnCommand Connection membership with the device, the company announced. This bundled offering will be available in July 2015. “We are serious about customer uptime in Canada and bringing such a robust telematics offering, with so much choice for customers, is a critical component of our uptime strategy,” said Mark Belisle, president, Navistar Canada.

Cheer up! It’s Spring Time !!!

KuS ho jwE! Aw geI ey bsMq r`uq!!


arch 20th marked the first day of spring. Along with the warm weather and sunnier and brighter days, spring also brings a new positive energy in everyone’s life. There seems to be a direct relation between warm and brighter weather and human ‘feel good’ psychology; Human beings are more productive, enthusiastic and energetic in the spring. It is also the time when business people can generate more opportunities to boost their organizations by coming out of their business offices in which they have hibernated all winter. It’s the time for business networking. Business networking is a marketing method by which business opportunities are created through networks of likeminded business people. The purpose of networking is to build relationships, to get leads from someone you know, or from someone who knows someone you know. The purpose of attending a networking event is to meet business people from various industries and to get exposure for yourself and your business. There are several prominent business networking organizations that create models of networking activity that, when followed, allow the business person to build new business relationships and generate business opportunities at the same time. Networking can help a business to improve performance, products and staff skills. It can also help to develop knowledge and skills by providing opportunities to participate in benchmarking, which can help to identify those areas where you can improve business performance. Networking can boost a business’ reputation and gather new leads. A business owner can raise their profile by becoming an established and regular networking member. Networking also helps to expand markets by generating new business contacts with potential 58

Cheer up! It’s Spring Time !!! customers, suppliers and partners. Networks can also be a key source of information and support. The extent to which one benefits depends on the events and services the network partnership offers and how actively someone becomes involved. Some businesses are reluctant to seek advice or get help for fear of being embarrassed or giving a competitor an opportunity to take advantage of them. However, for most businesses, the benefit of taking an active role in a network usually outweighs any potential concerns or reasons not to network. In the transportation industry, there are many significant networking events. Among them, there are the truck shows and conventions which take place each year. These are organized every spring or summer in many metropolitan cities in Canada and U.S.A. The major benefits of attending these shows are: • Displays of the latest trucks, equipment and technology; • A chance to see the latest and greatest in the transportation industry; • Meeting business associates and friends; • Developing new contacts; • Free demonstrations and evaluations of technology products; • Gaining information, knowledge and finding new trends in the industry; • Marketing your products and services; There is a very well-known truck show happening in BC this summer: • APNA Truck Show – June 13 – 14, 2015, Tradex Centre – Abbotsford, BC So, mark these dates in your calendar, and start planning to get the most out of these spectacular spring and summer networking opportunities.

BTS Releases February 2015 North American Freight Numbers


.S.-NAFTA freight totalled $85.7 billion in February 2015 as two out of five transportation modes – air and truck – carried more U.S.-NAFTA freight than in February 2014, according to the TransBorder Freight Data released today by theU.S. Department of Transportation’s Bureau of Transportation Statistics (BTS). The $85.7 billion total is the lowest February value for U.S.-NAFTA freight since 2011. Year-over-year, the value of U.S.-NAFTA freight flows by all modes decreased by 4.3 percent. The value of NAFTA trade by pipeline and vessel declined in February due to the reduced unit price of mineral fuel shipments. In February 2015 compared to February 2014, the value of commodities moving by air grew by the largest percentage of any mode, 4.5 percent. Truck freight increased by 0.9 percent. Rail freight decreased by 6.2 percent. Pipeline freight decreased by 22.8 percent and vessel freight decreased by 29.0 mainly due to the lower unit price of mineral fuel shipments. Trucks carried 63.1 percent of U.S.-NAFTA freight and are the most heavily utilized mode for moving goods to and from both U.S.-NAFTA partners. Trucks accounted for $26.9 billion of the $45.7 billion of imports (58.9 percent) and $27.2 billion of the $40.0 billion of exports (67.9 percent). Rail remained the second largest mode, moving 14.4 percent of all U.S.-NAFTA freight, followed by vessel, 7.1 percent; pipeline, 6.1 percent; and air, 3.8 percent. The surface transportation modes of truck, rail and pipeline carried 83.7 percent of the total U.S.-NAFTA freight flows. U.S.-Canada freight totalled $45.1 billion in February 2015 as only one out of five transportation modes –air– carried more U.S.-Canada freight than in February 2014. Year-overyear, the value of U.S.-Canada trade by air increased by 3.0 percent. Truck freight decreased by 2.9 percent and rail decreased by 13.3 percent. Pipeline freight decreased by 22.8 percent and vessel decreased by 26.5 percent, mainly due to lower mineral fuel prices. Trucks carried 57.2 percent of the $45.1 billion of freight to and from Canada, followed by rail, 14.6 percent; pipeline, 11.0 percent; vessel, 4.9 percent and air, 4.7 percent. The surface transportation modes of truck, rail and pipeline carried 82.9 percent of the total U.S.-Canada freight flows. U.S.-Mexico freight totalled $40.6 billion in February 2015 as three out of five transportation modes –air, truck, and rail– carried more U.S.-Mexico freight than in February 2014. Year-over-year, the value of U.S.-Mexico air freight rose 7.4 percent, the largest percentage increase of any mode. Freight carried by truck increased by 4.7 percent and rail freight increased by 3.3 percent. Pipeline freight decreased by 23.1 percent and vessel freight decreased by 30.4 percent, mainly due to lower mineral fuel prices. Trucks carried 69.6 percent of the $40.6 billion of freight to and from Mexico, followed by rail, 14.2 percent; vessel, 9.5 percent; air, 2.9 percent; and pipeline, 0.7 percent. The surface transportation modes of truck, rail and pipeline carried 84.5 percent of the total U.S.-Mexico freight flows. May / June 2015
