FreightLab Co-Director Gives Expert Testimony on Improving Trucking Capacity

David Correll cited his research from the Driver Initiative to congress at a hearing. He claims truck drivers are underutilized, largely because of bottlenecks outside their control. Some of these are warehouse hours, loading and unloading delays, and other issues that cause drivers to waste time idling. And they may not even get paid for the idle time.

He thinks, and I agree, that there’s no easy solution. People simply don’t value drivers’ time. It’s going to take a revolution in thinking on the part of people who are served by drivers and who serve them.

And parking places and bathrooms! Treat truckers like human beings.
