Drivers to blame for decreasing rates
I guarantee that the first companies to lower rates heard complaints, accompanied by hardly any resignations
Trucker Digest BLM
This Trucker Digest show is about the BLM Transportation Group.
This well-known trucking company is looking for new drivers.
BLM is proud to offer new equipment, plenty of miles, good work/life balance, an attractive pay package and genuine respect.
Looking for a better way to match available freight loads with trucks, TransCore Link Logistics in 1990 developed Loadlink, a load board connecting brokers, carriers, owner operators and private fleets in Canada to a real-time database of 15 million loads, shipments and trucks – the largest in the industry. The monthly Canadian Freight Index now defines the freight movement spot market. Look here for the most current update from TransCore Link Logistics by Canadian Freight Index and Data Feed
Canadians of Eastern European heritage have recorded a long, rich history in the Canadian trucking industry. I am living proof. You wouldn't know it by my last name but I am half-Ukrainian.
Regardless of the decade, the Eastern Europeans that have immigrated to Canada represent a hopeful and promising future. After spending decades of dealing with famine, repression, war and the fight for independence in their homelands, Canada is the Promised Land. Many of those pioneering men and women that chose trucking as a career played an integral part in promoting and preserving the diverse heritage of our industry. They continue to do so. Like Canada itself, trucking is based on strong work ethic from different cultural heritages. Eastern European truckers have much to be proud of for their contributions. Our industry is richer for it.
The impending professional driver shortage means that trucking must continue to diversify if it hopes to grow for future generations and remain the top transportation mode of choice for Canadian businesses. I have no doubt that with the help of your community, as well as industry partners like DorogaRoad magazine, we will solve this and many other important issues in the years to come.
To mark the occasion of the 100th issue of DorogaRoad, I want to thank Serge and the editorial team for all their support of the Canadian Trucking Alliance and the industry at large. Congratulations! And here's to the next 100 issues!
