Course Description
This course is designed for insurance underwriting and claims professionals who work with motor carriers. The trucking industry is swiftly changing, presenting a mix of challenges and opportunities. Regulatory frameworks, like the DOL Rulemaking’s Economic Reality Test and AB5’s ABC Test, are under scrutiny. Securing funding for safer truck parking is crucial, often through Federal Grants. Drug and alcohol testing dynamics are evolving, with no slowdown in clearinghouse data and alternative testing methods on the horizon. Questions persist about rating motor carriers within the CSA framework and determining accident preventability. Despite discussions on key bills like the Highway Accident Fairness Act of 2023 and the REAL Trucking Act in Congress, progress may stall due to the upcoming election year. Transitioning to zero-emission vehicles faces hurdles like high costs and weight considerations.

Educational Learning Objectives

  • Discuss the evolving regulatory landscape in the trucking industry, including the implications of rules
  • Explore the challenges and importance of safer truck parking facilities to address safety concerns in the industry.
