This week, Gail Rutkowski, Executive Director at National Shippers Strategic Transportation Council (NASSTRAC) authored an op-ed in InsideSources. In the op-ed, Rutkowski makes the case for modernizing trucking equipment standards to keep pace with technological advancements and demand in shipping and delivery. She calls for expanding the operation of Twin 33s in all 50 states that will make shipping of goods more efficient, alleviate strain on bridges and roads, and help make highways safer:
“If Twin 33s could operate in all 50 states, trucking companies and others involved in freight transport could reap even greater benefits in efficiency, with consumers being the ultimate winners. The reduction in fuel consumption, congestion, wear and tear on the roads, and pollution will benefit everyone.”
“Congress should seize its first opportunity to make this long-overdue change in regulatory before the end of the year.”
NASSTRAC is a shippers association for transportation and logistics professionals who manage freight across all modes.
