Transportation consultant TRINCON GROUP offers a white paper detailing how trucking companies can profit under the new hours of service rule, according to company officials.
In the paper, president Duff Swain outlines options for increasing productivity, such as decreasing loading and waiting time and using drop-and-hook operations.
Swain wrote the white paper based on a cost-accounting system that he has used since 1982.
