Trucking trends to watch in 2021: Revival of mandates for speed limiters, new insurance limits; plus freight, rates, highway bill and more
Now that 2020 has been laid to rest, what might be on tap for trucking in 2021?
For starters, a shift in power in Washington will likely alter the regulatory and legislative landscapes. Congress is due to pass a highway bill, with the FAST Act’s expiration last month. DOT and FMCSA will see new leaders. Major court cases involving laws that restrict owner-operators in California and potentially other states will take their next steps. Also, 2020's freight and rates rally will find fresh hurdles.
