Trucking Industry Update

All of the industry reports are showing strong freight prices, especially for flat bed loads.  That is an especially good sign as freight moved on flat bed is usually tied to infrastructure improvement. Dry van freight is stable and refrigerated freight is also strong.

 

The trucking industry continues to brace for the looming requirement for Electronic Logging Devices to become mandatory on December 18th of this year.

Sam Winger

Sam is our newest and youngest instructor.  He brings the spark of a millennial and is really good at helping students on the simulators and with their backing skills. We have students from a wide range of ages and Sam complements our staff with his sharp eye and enthusiasm.

Terry P from Ham Lake

Terry took our 160 Hour Professional Refresher Program.  This training will qualify him for a position with the major trucking companies that hire our students. The Program can be completed in as little as three weeks. Couse work can be done remotely online as Terry did.   A valid Class A CDL license is required to enroll in this program.  Stay safe and keep in touch.

Great Opportunities for Women in Trucking

Here are some comments from an article WBTV.COM:

We’ve got news for you: Some industries, you may have never considered before are “HIRING,” and you’re exactly what they’re looking for. There’s even new recruiting campaigns to attract women to apply.

There may be no such thing as a “man’s world” for long! There is a huge shortage of drivers right now.

Timothy Stadthur

Timothy did a great job while taking his training.  All of the instructors that worked with him commented on how well he progressed through the program. 

Driverless Vehicles

News from Interstate Truck Driving School - Back to News Page

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.
