Driverless Vehicles

Driverless Vehicles

There is a really good article by STEVEN SEIDENBERG in the ABA Journal about autonomous vehicles.  The liability issue is going to have a very strong influence on how practical it is to have large trucks driven autonomously. All of the hype in the media lately about driverless trucks does not factor in all of the issues at hand and also ignores the infrastructure already in place to put semi trailers on trains and move them across the country far cheaper than behind a truck with a driver.  

 

Here is the ABA Journal article:
 

Jon Morten Buseth

Jon was very excited when he passed his first CDL Road Test.  He was very nervous prior to the test but he did a good job and nailed the pre-trip inspection along with all of the driving manuevers. He is headed off to Halvor Lines.

Armondo Cerrito

Armondo did a great job with his training and passed his first attempt at the CDL road test.  He then did the second phase of his training with Gary Allman and progressed during every session.

Halvor Lines Recruiting Event

Halvor Lines Recruiting Event

A recruiter from Halvor Lines out of Superior, WI will be presenting at our South St. Paul location. Halvor Lines has hired quite a few of Interstate’s graduates and all of them that come back all have nothing put positive things to say about their experience.

Founded in 1968, Halvor Lines, Inc. found its niche by going above and beyond to help our customers meet their hauling needs, and has built on that legacy every day since. Our 900 trailers and over 360 power units have continually moved goods--and people--across the 49 states and Canada safely and on time.

Ocsar Inamagua

Oscar I. from Fridley completed his 160 Hour Professional Tractor Trailer Program today. Oscar did a great job on his training start to finish. He is not certain where he is going to work yet but one thing is for certain....there have never been so many opportunities for new truck drivers as there are now. Every day we turn companies away that are looking for drivers since we have so many great companies already recruiting our students. The latest industry reports indicate freight rates are continuing to climb. That means better opportunities for our graduates.

Freight levels up and climbing!

Freight levels up and climbing!

A 5:1 load-to-truck ratio on DAT Load Boards was seen for dry van freight last week. It’s the highest load-to-truck national average since March 2014, when demand skyrocketed with polar-vortex-related severe weather and led a big rates rally on the spot market that year. “This is a great sign that June is going to be very good to carriers,” notes DAT’s Ken Harper.

Dan Q.

Dan Q. from Minneapolis recently completed his 160 Hour Professional Tractor Trailer Program Training.  Dan passed his first CDL road test and then made great progress learning how to drive the big rigs.  His instructors always commented on how well he was progressing through out the process.

FMCSA’s driver training rule takes effect after Trump Administration delays

After a five-month delay due to regulatory reviews ordered by the Trump Administration, a rule setting national training standards for new truck drivers has become law. Effective as of June 5, the rule offers a nearly three-year compliance window, giving carriers, trainers and other stakeholders until February 2020 to comply with the rule.

The rule will apply to CDL applicants who receive their CDLs on Feb. 7, 2020, and after.
