2017, A new start

2017, ie`k nvyN swl dI SurA U wq 6

s 2016 comes to a close, it’s important to take some time and reflect on this year, on both a personal and business level. Analyze what has worked and what needs to change so that 2017 is an even better year than 2016. As we all know, the trucking industry, especially in certain areas, has taken a hit. Provinces which were booming two years ago now face some challenges. But as with most industries, there are always ups after the downs. We are certain that the transport industry will continue to boom in the coming years because let’s face it, it’s the transport industry that keeps our country moving. Speaking of moving, one of the biggest newsmakers is selfdriving vehicles, including transport trucks. Just recently, OTTO transported a fully-loaded trailer of Budweiser beer more than 120 miles along Colorado highway I-25 from Fort Collins through Denver to Colorado Springs. That’s quite an impressive feat; but experts are cautious and state that true self-driving technology is still years and years away. Being an automotive and driving enthusiast, I would still choose to drive vs. sit in a vehicle and do nothing. In 2017, we look forward to the APNA Truck Show, the largest trucking event in Western Canada. Visit this show to see the latest and greatest in products, technology, and service. This is also a great event to gather information about the transport industry and the changes that are taking place. The APNA Truck Show will take place on June 10th and 11th at Tradex in Abbotsford, BC. As this is the last issue for 2016, the entire staff at JGK Media Inc. wishes you a safe, relaxing, and enjoyable Holiday Season and New Year. We wish you nothing but the best for 2017. 2016 dw swl hux Awpxy AMiqm pVwA ‘qy hY[zrUrI hY ik ies bIq rhy swl ‘qy Awpxy sbMDI Aqy ibzns sbMDI pMCI Jwq mwrIey[ieh ivSlySx krIey ik kI TIk c`l irhw hY Aqy 2017 ‘c iks cIz ‘c suDwr krn dI loV hY qW ik auh 2016 nwloN vDIAw ho sky[ ijs qrHW swnUM swirAW nUM hI ies g`l dw igAwn hY ik tr`ikMg ieMfstrI ‘c Awm krky pr ku~J ^yqrW ‘c ^ws krky kMm ku`J GitAw hY[auh sUby ijhVy do swl pihlW qr`kI ‘c bhuq A`gy jw rhy sn nUM ku~J muSklW dw swhmxw krnw pY irhw hY[pr ieh c`kr Awm ieMfstrI vWg hI c`ldw hY Aqy hryk mMdvwVy qoN bwAd muV qr`kI rPqwr PV lYNdI hY[swnUM p`kw XkIn hY ik tRWsport ieMfstrI Awm vwLy smyN ‘c zrUr cmkygI[ kwrn ieh ik ieh tRWsport ieMfstrI hI hY ijhVI ik dyS nUM A`gy qordI hY[ hux jy g`l A`gy qorn dI c`l peI hY qW sB qoN v`fI ^br jo Aw rhI hY auh hY Awpxy Awp c`lx vwLIAW vhIklW Kws qOr ‘qy ibnw fRweIvr qoN c`lx vwLy tRWsport tr`k [hwL ‘c hI AOto vwilAW ny ie`k bu`fvweIzr bIAr dw BirAw trylr vwLw tr`k jo fRweIvr qoN vgYr hI sI ny 120 mIl dw pYNfw qYA kIqw[ ieh sPr hweIvyA I-25 ‘qy sI ijhVw Port koilnz qoN klorwfo spirMgz q`k sI[ieh bhuq hI pRBwvSwlI kMm sI; pr mwihrW dw kihxw hY ik Asl sYlP fRweIivMg qknIk leI Ajy keI swl l`gxgy[pr mYN ie`k fRweIivMg nUM psMd krn vwLw qW Ajy vI vhIkl dy iv`c ivhlw bYT ky Awpxy Awp cldw vyKx dI QW Awp clw ky hI ^usI mihsUs krWgw[ 2017 ‘c AsIN ‘Awpxw tr`k SoA’ ijhVw ik vYstrn kYnyfw dw sB qoN v`fw SoA hY, dw vI bysbrI nwL ieMqzwr kr rhy hW[jy vDIAw pRofkt, qknIk Aqy srivs sbMDI AqI AwDuink jwxkwrI pRwpq krnw cwhuMdy ho qW ieh SoA vyKxw nw Bu`lxw[ieh ies leI ^ws mOkw hovygw ikauN ik ies SoA ‘c tRwsport ieMfstrI sbMDI swrI nvIn jwxkwrI Aqy inXmW ‘c ho rhIAW qbdIlIAW bwry jwxkwrI imldI hY[‘Awpxw tr`k SoA’ AYbsPorf (bI. sI) dy tryfYks sYNtr ‘c 10 Aqy 11 jUn 2017 nUM hovygw[ ieh AMk swl dw Aw^rI AMk hY ies leI smu`cy ‘jy jI ky mIfIAw ieMk’ stwP v`loN quhwfI cVHdI klw dI kwmnw kIqI jWdI hY[ qusIN Cu`tIAW dw BrpUr AnMd mwxo! nvW swl quhwfy leI ^uSIAW qy KyVy lY ky Awvy! swfI idlI ^wihS hY ik 2017 dw swl quhwfy leI sB qoN vDIAw hovy!

Safety Innovations in Trucking kilometre ahead and behind so the driver’s decision making can be planned rather than simply reactive. Now, the Alberta Government, for one, is trying to reign in vehicle to vehicle voice communication because it’s distracting. No, Premier Notley, it’s not distracting, it’s an absolutely necessary safety tool. What’s the only thing autonomous vehicles require? They need vehicle to vehicle communication without which their is no autonomous trucking. It’s the same thing with vehicle to vehicle voice communication amongst trucks. Drivers tell each other exactly what they are seeing as they are seeing it, so those other trucks can take appropriate action to prevent catastrophic events. Truck drivers have often been travelling along the highway at full highway speed and suddenly a voice comes on the CB and yells, “Brake Check”. Immediately, all the truck drivers in the vicinity get off the fuel feed and their foot is hovering on the brake valve pedal. Then the driver is applying the brakes, sometimes as hard as possible just to stop in time to avoid something catastrophic. Because that driver yelled “brake check”, truck drivers had time to prepare for a major slow down. When a truck driver comes upon a traffic stoppage, it happens all too quickly. Truck drivers want to brake ahead of panic. Even the newest smart technology hasn’t replaced the immediacy of the driver to driver communication that has saved millions of lives; untold property damage and, ensured that Mrs Smith is able to find just the perfect roast for her Sunday dinner. But, none of that matters to Premier Notley. She thinks the CB is a distraction the use of which needs to be punished to the point of banning the technology altogether. Have you ever tried to drive in fog so thick it’s difficult to see the front of your truck let alone the vehicle or obstruction in front of you? There isn’t a trucker alive that hasn’t. Have you gotten through that fog because the voice on the other end of the CB was giving you explicit directions for navigation? It’s safe to say that many trucker has done just that because there is no excuse for a late delivery. The same thing applies to blizzards where the snow is so heavy, even if you weren’t moving, it’s difficult or downright impossible to see. Those other truckers around you get you through without incident. But that’s not being considered a safety item therefore it’s on the Alberta chopping block because it’s considered distracted driving. The screen on the Qualcomm may give you text instructions along the way but it can’t tell you when your 100 metres from disaster, but the CB can and does. Besides, if you text your dispatcher that you’re stopping because you can’t see where you’re going, chances are good, the dispatcher will demand you not stop because that load is much more important that your mere life. The next best safety item in the truck is the driver him or herself. It is that driver who makes all the critical decisions instantly. It is the driver that recognizes the truck is leading off to the right and makes the correction to avert disaster. It is the driver, who through experience can just feel the tire that’s not quite right and makes the determination to get it fixed immediately or can this be done in the shop at home. It is the driver than recognizes the railway tracks are going to force the truck to bottom out and possibly get hung up. It is the driver who recognizes that every time a rail crossing occurs there is imminent dangers that must be addressed and overcome 10

Safety Innovations in Trucking skillfully and properly. Too often the safety of this component of the truck is underestimated in his or her functionality. The driver is not just a nut behind the wheel. The driver is the most critical safety component of any vehicle. That being said, there must be a constant updating of his or her skills development to ensure the safety mindset is first and foremost. The safety manager, of any organization, is probably one of the most critical tasks. It is that safety manager that has to look at all situations and determine how to write policy on how to handle any given situation and hopefully before an incident happens that would force such policy to be created. Yet, when there is a downturn and work force must be shed, the first ones to go are the operational (drivers) and the safety personnel. Seems backwards, but that’s the way it happens. The other major task assigned to the safety manager is to ensure all in his charge are fully cognizant of the myriad of rules and regulations both from within and from governmental sources. It is impossible or nearly impossible for every truck driver in the US and Canada to be fully aware of each and every rule from the 62 jurisdictions but the safety manager must have a serious working knowledge of all that apply in the company operations. The safety manager has to be fully aware of all the various government and private sources for advising the drivers under his control with the various resources at hand. It’s certainly a challenge. For the foreseeable future, the main safety features for all trucking companies are their highly skilled drivers and their safety manager who maintains the safety skill level of drivers.

CONDITIONS CHANGE. SO SHOULD YOUR SPEED. Even the most confident drivers are at risk in hazardous road conditions. Slow down and drive at a safe speed to help reduce injuries and deaths on BC roads.

Why We All Don’t Drive A Ferrari with several hundreds of thousands of dollars in equity and has been driving a truck for twenty years. He earned his deal. Living on rent and having driven a company truck for one year with savings of only $5,000 will not get you what your friend got. It gets you shown to the door. A low or negative net worth is not something that’s looked at with fondness by a lender. You have a low balance in your bank accounts, you have no investments, no life insurance, no previous vehicle ownership, no property in your name and owe $50,000 in unsecured credit cards. Now you want $100,000 + when you have nothing to show for yourself? It doesn’t work that way. Not all hope is lost. It takes time, but you can realize the dream of having anything you might desire. Hard work does pay off eventually. If it was easy, everyone would be driving a Ferrari and have a fleet of brand new fully loaded highway trucks. But not every vehicle on the road is a Ferrari for a reason. That’s because not everyone can afford one, or it’s not practical. But with time and persistence, you will be rewarded eventually. There are things you can work on before applying for a loan; For example, you can build up your savings and investments over time. Have multiple credit cards, lines of credit, and loans and pay them off to show you can pay back money. That takes several years. Don’t miss any payments along the way either, not even on your cell phone as those are reported on your credit. Don’t carry large amounts of unsecured debt. Have a credit card and line of credit, but also pay them off in full each month. If you carry high balances over time, it shows you have over spent for your income and are struggling to pay it back. Work to pay your debts down. And try to earn the highest income you can. If you’re a trucker, take every load offered. The eager driver earns more money than the one who refuses loads or make excuses to his boss. Trying to declare a low income to save taxes is becoming a problem and many lenders are declining low income earners. We all have dreams and it’s a great motivation. Do not give up on your dreams, but the most important thing you need to be, is realistic and responsible. It’s not about showing off or looking good. This is your work. If you set your dreams within your means and work hard, they will be achieved. You can realize anything if you endure but there are sacrifices along the way and sometimes other things may be more important. I have a long time client

Why We All Don’t Drive A Ferrari who wants a Range Rover. He looks online and asks for quotes on how much the payment will be. He’s always shocked at the amount the payment is, and I told him, not everyone has a Range Rover. Maybe you cannot have one now, but maybe later you can. I also know he has two children who will be graduating high school in a few years, so I told him let’s save that money for the kids post secondary educations now, and buy the dream car later. He agreed. Sometimes family and other things are a bigger priority, so a responsible sacrifice is made. We would all love to have a brand new truck or an expensive sports car, but sometimes it’s just not a good match or the right timing. So try to live within your means, persevere, and be realistic with what you want, and what you can actually have. As they say, “Rome wasn’t built in a day.”

Lights Tell Drivers If Fifth Wheel is Coupled to Trailer


redesigned automatic lighting system for fifth wheels will soon be available from SAF-Holland, which says its ELI-te electronic lock indicator will help drivers ensure a proper coupling when they hook onto trailers. The ELI-te Fifth Wheel Coupling Indicator includes white LED lights for the jaws-king pin area of the fifth wheel, red LED warning lights, and a long-life, application-specific electronic control module, said Bryon Redecker, product manager. The system is self-contained except for a power cord that must be fitted to a tractor’s electrical system. It is replacing a version introduced about 15 years ago that has links to an in-cab indicator system. For various reasons that product has not been popular, Redecker said. Miscouplings sometimes cause kingpins to slip loose from fifth wheels and trailer noses to fall onto the ground as a tractor pulls away. Major fleets have told SAFHolland that hundreds of instances of

dropped trailers occur each year. Drivers working with the ELI-te receive simple, immediate, and actionable feedback after each coupling. When a trailer kingpin is properly coupled to an ELI-te equipped

fifth wheel, four high-intensity white LED lights mounted within the fifth wheel automatically illuminate the lock jaws. Drivers can then verify that jaws have locked onto the kingpin.

If the coupling is not successful, the white lights stay dark and outward-facing red lights begin flashing. A driver can then find out why the coupling is not complete. A successful retry will turn off the red lights and illuminate the white lights. After a recheck, the driver can hook up air and electrical lines, finish a pre-trip inspection of tractor and trailer, and be on his way. The enhanced ELI-te is an integrated option on Holland’s FW series fifth wheels, including the FW31, 33 and 35. It will be available installed at the Holland factory or in retrofit kits. Price has not been set. “The lights make it easy for drivers to positively confirm that they have coupled correctly, and warn them if they have not. It’s a new generation of safety,” said Mark Molitor, vice president of engineering, Americas. “It’s an engineered, all-in-one system that will be spec’d by on-highway fleets that are looking to empower drivers to accomplish correct coupling consistently.”


There are better ways.

Unified Carrier Registration

XUnIPweIf kYrIAr rijstRySn NSC Compliance Services

What is UCR? UCR stands for Unified Carrier Registration program. It was created by the federal legislation and has replaced the former system for registering the operators of vehicles engaged in interstate travel, it was commonly known as the Single State Registration System (SSRS). What is the major difference between the UCR and the SSRS? The UCR applies to all operators of Commercial Motor Vehicles (CMVs) whereas the SSRS only applied to for-hire motor carriers. The UCR also includes carrier’s that are transporting interstate goods even if their vehicles do not leave the state. According to the UCR program, what is considered a CMV? Any self-propelled vehicle used on highways engaged in interstate travel that has a gross weight of 10,001 pounds or more is considered a CMV. Also vehicles that are designed to transport 11 or more passengers including the driver are considered CMVs. Any vehicle that is required to have hazardous waste placards will also fall into this category. Will the registration apply to individual vehicles or will a single registration apply to the fleet? One registration based on fleet size applies to all the vehicles that are registered under the USDOT number. Do only motor carriers have to register for UCR? No, along with motor carrier, all motor private carriers, freight forwarders, brokers and leasing companies have to register for UCR as well. What happens if your company does not register for UCR? Each state has the authority to enforce registration compliance through roadside enforcement checks. If your vehicle is pulled over and your company has not been registered for UCR you could be subject to a fine depending on which state you are pulled over in. A business audit could also reveal that your company is not registered for UCR and this could lead to 20

Overweight Trucks Prohibited on Champlain Bridge in Montreal


s of Monday, Oct. 10, all overweight vehicles are banned from crossing the Champlain Bridge in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Jacques Cartier and Champlain Bridges Inc. (JCCBI) noted that overweight trucks have put stress on the bridge beyond the load limits that it was designed to bear. The ban affects trucks with Canadian Class 5 and Class 6 special travel permits. Class 5 permits allow loads between 145,505 and 174,165 pounds. Class 6 permits apply to any vehicles that exceed the limits of the Class 5 permit. Experts at JCCBI will review requests for overweight trucks to travel on the 24

Champlain Bridge on a case-by-case basis. Class 7 permits – trucks that are oversized

– will continue to be reviewed before being allowed to travel on the bridge.

JCCBI will install signs and plans for other forms of communication to alert transportation companies of the changes. More than 5.3 million trucks cross the bridge each year. Last summer, dynamic traffic lights were installed to keep truck traffic in the centre lanes. An average of $100 million a year has been spent to keep the bridge safe since JCCBI began to monitor safety in 2008. The bridge is being maintained as the new Champlain Bridge is being built, which is expected to be completed in December 2018. November / december 2016

OTTO Makes First Live Load Delivery


utonomous vehicle development firm Otto and beer maker Anheuser-Busch recently completed what they claim is the world’s first commercial shipment via self-driving truck: transporting a full-loaded trailer of Budweiser beer more than 120 miles along Colorado highway I-25 from Fort Collins through Denver to Colorado Springs. Otto Co-Founder Lior Ron noted that a human truck driver remained aboard the vehicle for the entire route, monitoring the delivery from the sleeper berth as the truck completed the 120mile route, exit-to-exit, entirely on its own without any driver intervention. “The incredible success of this pilot shipment is an example of what is possible when you deploy self-driving technology. It also showcases the importance of collaboration with forward-looking states like Colorado and companies like Anheuser-Busch,” Ron said in a statement. “By embracing this technology, both organizations are actively contributing to the creation of a safer and more efficient transportation network,” he added.

The load originated at Anheuser-Busch’s facility in Loveland, Colorado and departed for its journey from the Fort Collins, Colorado weigh station. Otto’s Ron reiterated the “vision” for self-driving technology is to help transform the trucking industry by: Reducing the number of fatalities on U.S. roads. Nearly half of fatalities happen on highways and 94% of accidents are caused by human error. Enabling fuel-efficient driving and therefore reducing emissions from freight trucks, which are currently responsible for 28% of all road vehicle carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. Enhancing truck utilization and providing a sustainable solution for the driver shortage that continues to put pressure on drivers to work long hours at the risk of safe driving. He also noted that one “major opportunity” presented by its self-driving technology is that truck drivers will be able to rest during long stretches of highway, and perhaps even catch up on sleep. That begs the question of whether the driver is “on-duty” with respect to hours of service laws while they are resting, as its self28

Jake Brake for 2017 X15 Cummins Introduced

acobs Vehicle Systems announced the introduction of the optimized engine brake for the 2017 Cummins X15 engine. “The 2017 X15 capitalizes on the optimization of the VGT and the braking cam to deliver approximately ten percent additional braking power at engine speeds under 1700 RPM, compared to that of the 2010 ISX15,” the company said. “At a typical engine speed of 1500 RPM, drivers can now rely on 450 HP of braking power to provide confidence and driver control while in traffic or descending a hill. Wıth a simple downshift to increase the engine speed, the engine brake in the X15 Performance

Series will deliver a retarding force of up to 600HP of braking at 2100RPM. The X15 braking performance continues to be best-in-class for heavy duty engines in North America.” “Cummins was Jacobs’ first engine brake customer in 1961. Over 55 years later, we continue to innovate through collaboration among our engineering teams using all engine systems available to maximize engine braking,” said Steve Ernest, vice president, Engineering and

Business Development. “When the pioneers and global leaders of engine brakes combine efforts with world-class diesel engine designers, we drive constant innovation and evolution of technologies that deliver performance and value to the customer. With the Cummins X15, equipped with an integrated Jacobs Engine Brake, truckers will experience safer travel and the improved comfort they demand, while reducing the wear of foundation brakes, downtime and service costs.”

Peterbilt’s SmartLINQ Remote Diagnostics Technology Now Available for All Heavy-duty Truck Engines


eterbilt Motors Company introduced new technology enhancements to its SmartLINQ remote diagnostics platform, as well as expanded availability to all Class 8 truck engines, during the ATA Management Conference & Exhibition in Las Vegas. “Peterbilt’s SmartLINQ is providing our customers with greater uptime, as well as cost savings and improved fleet management,” said Darrin Siver, Peterbilt General Manager and PACCAR Vice President. “Reasoning engine technology and SmartLINQ Service Management are Peterbilt’s latest innovations to SmartLINQ’s comprehensive connected truck solutions.” SmartLINQ provides customers with real-time, at-a-glance information on fleet health, with detailed diagnostics and recommended actions, through the web-based PACCAR Solutions portal. SmartLINQ Service Management, powered by Decisiv, will be integrated with the PACCAR Solutions portal in 2017. Siver noted that nearly 20,000 Peterbilt trucks are equipped with SmartLINQ and that number is rapidly expanding with the system now standard and factory-installed on all heavy-duty trucks. Reasoning Engine Technology Reasoning engine technology, a collective knowledge approach to truck

diagnostics and repair, will be integrated with the SmartLINQ platform in December. “Reasoning engine technology improves truck service and repair efficiencies to get trucks back on the road faster,” said Scott Newhouse, Peterbilt Chief Engineer. “Using actual field repair data, it provides technicians and customers with the most efficient diagnostic and service procedures.” SmartLINQ’s reasoning engine

technology will collect and analyze information generated by the on-board diagnostics of every SmartLINQ-enabled truck. It utilizes machine learning to make associations between triggered diagnostic codes. Technicians can apply up-to-theminute information to more efficiently and accurately diagnose and solve service issues. SmartLINQ Service Management SmartLINQ Service Management provides customers with real-time access to the status of truck repairs and service being performed at Peterbilt dealerships. It improves uptime by streamlining communication between customers and dealers to expedite decision-making in the servicing of the vehicle, for instance

approving electronic repair estimates. “SmartLINQ provides customers with instant, complete remote diagnostic information,” said Mike Conroy, Director of Field Service. “SmartLINQ Service Management takes the next step by giving customers that same convenience during the service process, letting them manage it more efficiently.” SmartLINQ Service Management is user-friendly and features real-time dashboards, alerts and reports. All service steps are date- and time-stamped, providing a complete history of each service event. Beginning this month every Class 8 truck produced will have a code that dealer service technicians scan to access detailed chassis information and updatable service records though SmartLINQ Service Management.

Yokohama Adds Four New Tires

okohama Tire Corp. recently added four new sizes to its 104ZR line of urban/regional allposition/steer tire line-up: the 225/70R19.5, 245/70R19.5, 265/70R19.5 and 285/70R19.5. “The 104ZR is a true workhorse that’s designed to deliver longer tread wear, low rolling resistance and even wear, making it especially ideal for high scrub applications,” noted Tom Clauer, Yokohama’s manager of commercial and OTR product planning, in a statement. He added that the 104ZR still retains its original sizes as well: 295/80R22.5, 9R22.5, 10R22.5, 11R22.5 12R22.5 and 315/80R22.5. Clauer went on to emphasize that the 104ZR tire line is designed to provide several key benefits to truck owners: A five-rib, full-depth tread pattern to help deliver a smoother and quieter ride. The use of Yokohama’s unique “serpentine” groove pattern to reduce premature shoulder step-down and irregular wear, further preserving overall tread life. The incorporation of Yokohama’s

Zenvironment technology that accurately predicts casing growth and stabilizes performance over the life of the tire; resulting in longer casing life and better.

Improved fuel economy via the use

of stronger and more pliable compounds that improve tread wear and reduce rolling resistance. The use of block-shaped stone defense ribs to prevent stones from traveling to the bottom of the grooves, reducing casing damage by up to 25%, again ensuring greater durability and retreadability. Use of an ultra-wide top steel belt to increase rigidity across the entire tread surface for enhanced tire durability and to avoid casing damage.

XPO Logistics Sells to TransForce

PO Logistics, Inc. (NYSE: XPO) (“XPO”) announced it has completed the sale of its truckload business to TransForce Inc. (TSX: TFI) for approximately $558 million in cash, subject to customary adjustments. XPO will use the proceeds from the transaction to pay down debt. The divested truckload operation encompasses approximately 3,000 tractors, 7,500 trailers and 29 locations that were part of the October 2015 acquisition of Con-way Inc. XPO will continue to offer full truckload services to customers in the United States, Mexico and Canada through its extensive brokerage network. XPO is the second largest freight brokerage provider in the world. Bradley Jacobs, chairman and chief executive officer of XPO Logistics, said, “TransForce is getting the 19th largest asset-based truckload carrier in the U.S., a highly experienced workforce, and a presence in the cross-border Mexico freight corridor. We divested these assets to concentrate on growing our value to customers in the

areas where we’re leaders in the industry: contract logistics, truck brokerage, less-than-truckload, last mile, intermodal, drayage, expedite and managed transportation.” Jacobs continued: “This transaction strengthens our balance sheet and improves our long-term growth profile. In addition to deleveraging, the sale reduces our annual capex requirements, increases our return on capital, and lessens the cyclicality of our operations.” The divested operations, which have been reported as part of XPO’s Transportation segment, were expected to generate approximately $10 million of operating income for the remaining two months of 2016, and depreciation and amortization of approximately $10 million. The company will update its financial targets to reflect the transaction when it reports its third quarter results on November 2, 2016. J.P. Morgan served as financial advisor to XPO Logistics, and Scudder Law Firm, P.C. acted as legal advisor.

Omnitek to Develop a 13 Litre Natural Gas Engine


SAFER! A Free in-house visit by our health and safety advisor


mnitek Engineering announced it has signed a contract with a European customer to develop a heavy-duty 13-litre natural gas engine for Class 8 trucks and certify the engine to EURO 6 emissions standards. The development contract includes a multi-year supply agreement for Omnitek’s proprietary components. Additional terms were not disclosed. The new 13-litre 450 hp natural gas engine being developed will initially be utilized to power a fleet of approximately 1,000 new Class 8 trucks, scheduled to commence service in 2017. “The ability of Omnitek’s technology to achieve EURO 6 emissions certification standards, which is a competitive advantage and not easily achieved, has not gone unnoticed in Europe. In addition, the availability of a 13-litre 450 hp EURO 6 heavy-duty natural gas engine, coupled with the build-out of natural gas fuelling infrastructure, should further accelerate deployment of natural gas heavy-duty trucks in Europe, as well as other world regions that require Euro 6 certification,” said Werner Funk, president and chief executive officer of Omnitek Engineering Corp. Funk highlighted the low-cost and clean-burning benefits of natural gas – particularly as oil prices begin to increase and emissions policies address the 200-nation “Paris Agreement on Climate Change” that was recently signed. “CO2, NOx and black carbon emissions from diesel engines, potent greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, are abated when using natural gas, and our technology offers countries around the globe a viable and proven solution,” he said. He emphasized that even with relatively low oil prices, the company is still in active discussions with several domestic fleet operators. Funk added he anticipates certain key projects commencing in the near future, as fleet managers have now completed analyzing the economic benefits of a pay-back period of less than two years for diesel-to-natural gas engine conversions and also recognize the environmental considerations and related compliance issues with meeting emissions mandates.

Peace Bridge Deck Resurfacing Will Slow Passage Starting in Mid November


ccording to Peace Bridge Authorities resurfacing on the bridge will begin November 15 that will lead to slow downs crossing the bridge. During the resurfacing, one lane on the bridge will be shut down from November 15 through May 15, 2017, with the remaining two lanes open for traffic (one in each direction). To assist in traffic management during the construction period and to avoid truck queuing on the bridge entering the US, the Peace Bridge Authority will be metering the flow of commercial traffic into the United States. There will be no changes for trucks entering Canada. Only trucks that have successfully submitted an ACE e-manifest and have paid the applicable U.S. border crossing fees will be permitted to cross the bridge. Trucks will be evaluated at the bottom of the bridge on the Canadian side by Peace Bridge officials through the use of Pre-Arrival

Readiness Evaluation (PARE) provided by CBP. During the construction period, the Peace Bridge will require all trucks to submit ACE e-manifests, even if not currently required by CBP regulations. This will speed up the flow of truck traffic through CBP’s required clearance processes and minimize lane blockage by unprepared trucks. Once Bridge officials determine trucks have a complete and successful ACE e-manifest and have paid the applicable border crossing fees, they will be directed to cross the bridge. The readiness evaluation will take place in the commercial vehicle staging lot at the base of the bridge on the Canadian side. Trucks that have not submitted an ACE e-manifest will be denied access to the bridge and asked to return to a location off Peace Bridge property to address their issues or to use an alternate commercial crossing. Trucks that have not paid the appropriate border crossing fees will be directed to the FAST office adjacent to the Peace Bridge staging facility where two self-serve kiosks have been installed to provide opportunity for the driver to pay the fee using the CBP’s DTOPS (Decal and Transponder Online Procurements System: https://dtops. This will be open from 8 am until 10 pm daily to assist drivers/trucks who have not already paid the border crossing fees. All drivers/carriers are encouraged address both their PBA’s requirement to file an e-manifest and their border crossing fees before arriving at the Peace Bridge. Prepared drivers and trucks will be critical in allowing the Peace Bridge to function as efficiently as possible and to continue to facilitate commercial traffic during this construction period. CBP and Peace Bridge officials with OTA’s assistance will be issuing additional education materials for the industry prior to implementation (scheduled for Nov 15). The Peace Bridge Authority will also be testing the new process in advance of going live on November 15th. November / december 2016

The Consequences of Bad Credit Pash Brar, B.A.


n trucking and in all industries, maintaining good credit is essential for growth and expansion. Not knowing your credit or having bad credit can harm your business and your personal life. Whenever I sit down with a client applying for credit, I always ask them, “How is your credit?” Some will tell me they don’t know, some say it’s good and some say it’s bad. For those that don’t know, it’s important knowing where you stand before you apply for credit. If your credit score is a poor one, then you can prepare co-signors in advance, or work on improving your credit well in advance. If your credit is good then that’s great. Keep it that way and you have less to worry about when applying for any type of credit. Often people tell me their credit is good and when I check it, it is not. That just causes a lot of problems for the person borrowing money, and the company you’re trying to borrow from. If your credit is being checked, always tell the truth, as the truth will be uncovered anyways. You make yourself look back and hurt your chances of getting credit if you don’t tell the truth. For those who have bad credit, all hope is not lost, but there will be repercussions for your past bad payment history that you must accept. For trucking companies, fuel cards on credit are essential. If the owners of the company have bad credit, there will be a huge issue. Paying cash for fuel will require a large amount of cash on hand at all times, making it extremely difficult to start the business. For larger companies this total will be several hundreds of thousands of dollars and more. It is much easier to have fuel cards and pay one fuel bill each month instead of paying every day. The cash will be tied up to keep paying fuel and you will have issues paying for maintenance, insurance, office staff, rent and drivers later. It


is a big advantage to have good credit before starting a company, and maintaining that good credit. Partnerships in trucking are quite common. But if you partner with an individual who has bad credit that partnership is no longer split equally. If one partner has good credit and the others don’t, there will be a reliance on the partner with the good credit to obtain all the credit for the company. I recently saw a partnership dissolve for this reason. The partner with the good credit said all the money issues were on his head and his bad credit partner didn’t contribute equally. As he stated to me, he had everything to lose, while the other person had such bad credit that he had nothing to lose as no one would give him anything. Individuals and companies with bad credit are not entitled to the very best rates. Some of them talk a good game and try to demand a better rate, but that gets them nowhere. Future credit is all based on your past. If you don’t have a good past, your interest rate will be higher and sometimes you will be outright declined. Bad credit entitles you to nothing. I had one company enquiring about purchasing several brand new trucks and advised me they had high interest rates on some previous purchases and didn’t know why. I told them why. They had bad credit. High risk = high interest rates. In trucking equipment is not cheap. Trucks and trailers are not easy to pay with cash. If your credit is not good and you need equipment, there will be big issues. Whether it’s a company or an owner operator or even for a rental, your credit will be checked. If your credit is bad, you may be declined. Smaller amounts may be possible, but equipment costs are large and larger amounts are harder to come by if you have not maintained a good past credit history. A prospective owner operator who is declined must earn less money and remain driving a truck they do not own, or get a

Volvo Trucks. Driving Progress


The Consequences of Bad Credit co-signor and a company who is declined may not be able to expand, and can lose loads with no equipment to dispatch. Driving abstracts and credit as well are often checked when hiring. If you have a poor credit history a company may not want to hire you even with the best driving record. A driver with bad credit cannot be trusted with expensive equipment or with a fuel card. If declined for a job this affects your earnings and affects your entire family. Not enough credit or too much credit can also pose issues. Owning only one credit card does not justify any lender to loan you large amounts of money. One item is not enough. You must have several items of credit. You must prove yourself with a good track record by paying back all of the items in a timely basis. Having too much credit is also a problem. If all credit cards and lines of credit are all maxed out and you’re only paying minimum payments over a long period of time and have no savings this will cause you problems. You may have spent more than you can afford and it will be difficult to get a deal approved when you can’t afford what you already have. Have credit that you can pay off affordably. Finding the comfortable balance where you can pay off all credit cards and lines of credit in full each month, make all installments such as mortgages and vehicle and equipment on time, and still have savings is the goal. It takes time to get there, especially if you’ve already overspent. But it’s easier if this is done from the start. But again, circumstances can change any time. Bad things can happen to good people which may affect credit. I’ve seen illness, loss of employment and industry declines that affect people who had always paid their bills on time and still have every intention to. Sudden changes in life no can predict, but if in a situation like this, you can work to restore your credit once the situation has been resolved. Your credit stays on your record for seven years. If you’re able to, try to restore it. If your credit was bad from the start, try to correct it and show you are able to pay back borrowed money. Options such as secured credit cards are available to get it started. If you can have good credit going forward and really prove yourself, you will find that doors that were closed by financial institutions in the past might open for you once again. 54


NAFTA Truck Freight Shows Increase

he U.S. Department of Transportation’s Bureau of Transportation Statistics reports that in August trucks moved more than 65 percent of all the international freight – with trains, planes, ships and pipelines picking up the rest. Truck and air freight were the only modes to experience an increase compared to last August. The value of freight hauled across the borders increased by more than 11 percent compared with July when freight was down nearly 10 percent from the previous month. August marks the largest monthto-month increase since March 2015. Compared to August 2015, freight was up 0.7 percent, the first year-to-year increase since December 2014 when freight increased by more than 5 percent. Year-to-year, NAFTA freight was down every month since then. Trucks were responsible for nearly $61 billion of the $93.1 billion of imports and exports in August. Rail came in second with more than $14 billion. Vessel and pipeline freight when compared with last year contributed to the yearly decline in U.S.-NAFTA trade

flow because of plummeting crude oil prices, according to BTS. Freight totalled $93.126 billion, up more than $9 billion from the previous month and an increase of nearly $700 million from August 2015. Vessel freight experienced the steepest decline at 12.5 percent, half of July’s drop of 25.1 percent. Trucks had a 3.4 percent increase, the second highest increase next to air freight at 4.9 percent. Nearly 60 percent of U.S.-Canada freight was moved by trucks, followed by rail at 16.5 percent. U.S.-Mexico freight went up by 3 percent compared with August 2015. Of the $45.8 billion of freight moving in and out of Mexico, trucks carried more than 71 percent of the loads.

Meritor Expands Wheel-End Portfolio


eritor announced an expansion of its wheel-end portfolio to include Opti-Lite brake drums. The Opti-Lite drum is designed for linehaul and weight-sensitive applications such as tanker/trailer and freight. “Developed on the same platform as our established STEELite X30 brake drums, the Opti-Lite drum maintains the high quality associated with its genuine product heritage and offers similar weight and fuel savings,” said David Reid, senior product manager, aftermarket for Meritor. “The lower price of the Opti-Lite will appeal to customers in search of an economical drum option produced in the United States.” “Opti-Lite drums do not require welded-

on weights and offer an optimized balance spec for smoother performance on the road,” Reid added. For ease of identification and ordering, the Opti-Lite brake drums will carry the same base nomenclature as the genuine STEELite X30 offering with the number 50 included as a prefix for product clarification. The prefix 50 is associated with all OptiLite series part numbers. Opti-Lite brake drums are covered by Meritor’s standard aftermarket warranty.

Yokohama Rubber to Establish U.S. Tire R&D Centre in North Carolina


he Yokohama Rubber Co., Ltd. announced recently that it will establish a tire research & development centre in North Carolina, with R&D activities scheduled to start this month in the greater Charlotte area. The Company presently conducts R&D on tires for the North American market in several U.S. states and in


ICBC approved heavy collision repairs. Custom body and paint work for commercial truck ,trailer ,bus, motorhomes, limo’s, industrial equipment and cars. Sandblasting and Painting. ICBC Valet Shop Authorized. ICBC Express Glass Services.

Japan, but looks to consolidate the majority of these R&D activities at the new centre soon. The consolidation of R&D activities will strengthen the Company’s R&D framework and further accelerate its ability to deliver new tire products that meet market needs in a timely manner. With the consolidation, Yokohama also plans to double the current size of its North American R&D staff. The new centre initially will engage in the design of new tires for passenger cars and other consumer applications, but will gradually expand its activities to include testing & evaluation, design of tires for industrial and construction machinery, technical services and quality assurance. The North Carolina location was selected on the basis of its ability to attract high-quality staff and its close proximity to a hub airport. Yokohama Rubber will consider additional investment in its facilities in line with the expansion of the breadth of its activities. Yokohama Rubber’s North American operations currently include the sale of tires for passenger cars, trucks and buses, and industrial and construction machinery, with tire manufacturing facilities in Virginia and Mississippi and its corporate headquarters in California. During Phase IV (2015–2017) of its Grand Design 100 (GD100) medium-term management plan, Yokohama Rubber is placing even greater importance on the huge North American market and plans to strengthen local sales of original equipment tires and replacement tires. Consolidation of its R&D function in North America is an important part of that management strategy. A strong proponent of local production for local consumption, Yokohama Rubber also has been strengthening its tire R&D activities in regional centres close to the markets it serves. The Company established its Nürburgring Test Centre in Germany in 2006, its Tire Test Centre of Asia in Thailand in April 2009, and the Yokohama China Technical Centre in China in January 2012. The new tire R&D centre in the United States will become the Company’s largest overseas R&D centre in terms of both functions and number of employees. November / december 2016

Clean Diesel Benefits Explained


he success of private industry, government, environmental and health organizations in working to replace older diesel engines with near-zero emission clean diesel technology has reaped significant air quality improvements in the Midwest and throughout the United States, according to the Diesel Technology Forum. In a presentation to the Midwest Clean Diesel Initiative in Chicago recently, Ezra Finkin, the director of policy for the Diesel Technology Forum, highlighted several of the clean air and health gains achieved over the past decade in reducing emissions from older diesel equipment. The MCDI is a collaboration of federal, state and local agencies, along with communities, non-profit organizations and private companies all working together to reduce diesel emissions in Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, Wisconsin and 35 tribal nations. Finkin outlined how new clean diesel heavy duty trucks (model year 2010 or newer) with near-zero emission have significantly reduced emissions by: Eliminating 8.3 million tons of NOx Eliminating 43 million ton of CO2 Saving 2.9 billion gallons of diesel fuel (65 million barrels of oil) Midwest is home to new diesel technology & manufacturing Finkin, who serves as member of the MCDI Steering Committee, noted that the Midwest is a true home to clean diesel as many of the global leaders in diesel truck and equipment manufacturing are headquartered

in the region. The region boasts a number of states with the highest percentage of new technology clean diesel equipment in operation. This includes Indiana, where almost 50 percent of the diesel trucks in operation have the latest near-zero emissions technology, the highest percentage in the nation. This is significant, Finkin said, because a single clean diesel Class 8 truck can eliminate over one ton of NOx emissions relative to a previous generation of diesel truck in just one year. “Diesel engines manufactured to meet the model year 2010 standard actually generated less than half of the maximum allowable emissions of NOx and [particulate

matter], which is a considerable margin of safety,” Finkin said. Diesel overwhelmingly dominates Midwest truck market Finkin also highlighted how diesel

trucks were the overwhelming dominate fuel sources for Class 3-8 trucks in the Midwest with the following chart: State Diesel Natural Gas Illinois 391,646 1,371 Indiana 477,677 1,834 Iowa 169,468 245 Michigan 233,684 282 Minnesota 205,673 592 Missouri 224,575 566 Ohio 364,563 1,208 Wisconsin 214,446 832 Total 2,281,732 6,930 Vehicles in Operation, Dec. 31, 2015 Largest NOx reductions to come from new diesels With economic sector across the U.S. depending on diesel power, including agriculture, mining, construction, manufacturing and goods movement, the increased use of new diesel technology will provide immediate emissions benefits. “Today, the greatest opportunity for NOx emission reduction is older commercial vehicles,” Finkin said, “and the largest reductions in emissions are possible by accelerating the uptake of new technology clean diesel vehicles.” Clean diesel emission benefits would be immediate from VW mitigation funds Finkin also outlined how the recently approved $2.7 billion Volkswagen emissions mitigation settlement could provide the opportunity for immediate clean air benefits – if it is allocated properly. “Investing settlement dollars in the newest generation of clean diesel technology will enable all the Midwest and other regions to realize the most immediate clean air benefits from the available dollars. Other technologies meanwhile are more expensive and in many cases, require substantial investments in expensive infrastructure,” Finkin said. “Clean diesel is the more cost effective solution to provide near term benefits compared to [compressed natural gas] or electric vehicles.” Finkin noted the investments needed to reduce 1 pound of NOx, as provided by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, are: $86: clean diesel $107: CNG $165: battery electric November / december 2016
