Regulations outlook: What will impact trucking operations

April 19, 2024
Truck industry analysts from ATA and Scopelitis Transportation Consulting share their insight into upcoming regulations.

As with most things involving the government, regulations take time to finalize, opening the door for criticism and comments from those who are or will be affected. There has been negative feedback on recent trucking regulations, suggesting the government is moving too quickly. Yet others in the industry, such as those on a panel at Motive’s inaugural Vision conference, think trucking regulations are moving too slowly. 

Representatives from American Trucking Associations and Scopelitis Transportation Consulting chatted with fleet leaders about independent contractor rules, underride guard requirements, and apprenticeship programs and their impact on the trucking industry. The two also discussed whether some of these proposed regulations should be on the docket.
