COVID-19 reenergizes truck size/weight battle
from Freight Waves
A coalition that includes owner-operators, large trucking companies and the freight railroads is looking to head off renewed efforts to permanently raise national truck size standards in the wake of COVID-19. The Coalition Against Bigger Trucks (CABT) asserts that it is not opposed to the raising of weight limits by individual states aimed at making it easier for shippers and carriers to move essential freight during the pandemic. "However, we do believe these provisions must be temporary and no efforts be made at the federal level to make these permanent," the group told FreightWaves.
