JOC Guide to Trucking
In its annual Guide to Trucking, the Journal of Commerce looks at some of the major issues facing the trucking industry and its customers, including the financial health of motor carriers, the driver shortage and trends in trucking capacity. The 2013 guide asks whether a slow recovery has actually been better for shippers and carriers than a more robust expansion. In addition, the guide explores trucking’s past and future through an exclusive interview with J. Harwood Cochrane, the 100-year-old founder of Overnite Transportation, now UPS Freight.
The guide features a comprehensive listing of the largest truckload and less-than-truckload carriers, ranked by revenue, as well as the top refrigerated, tank truck and flatbed operators. Infographics explore truck driver issues, from pay and turnover to driver numbers, and the new hours of service regulations. And the guide includes a directory with information on more than 130 motor carriers in the U.S. and Canada.
