By: Nick Stanley / Posted on: December 2, 2019

Over time, the transportation industry has seen many new regulations passed for various reasons.  From electronic log books, lower emission trucks, and increasing the age to have a commercial driver’s license (CDL) these laws were intended to improve the safety of the public as well as protect the environment.  The increased tighter regulations have forced companies into compliance resulting in a tougher trucking market.
