TD161: A New Era For The Trucker Dump Podcast... Hopefully Trucker Dump - A Trucking Podcast

    • Careers

We kick off a new era of the Trucker Dump Podcast today where I attempt to take the podcast to a weekly schedule. Hey! Quit laughing!


In this week's news we've got three recalls, both happy and unhappy Freedom Convoyers, the dates for this year's Brake Safety Week, a new FMCSA director on the way, the challenges of enforcing speed limiters, the Top 100 carrier list, carrier acquisitions, a revoked ELD, the logistics of war, and your chance to help the FMCSA define brokers.


Trucker Grub takes us to some good home cooking on I-35 in Missouri, and of course, listener feedback from you!

Volvo Trucks - Check out the new D13TC engine in the Volvo VNL series.


Porter Freight Funding - So many services to offer, including Factoring, Dispatching, Freight Brokering, Fuel Cards, Insurance, and Compliance. Call 205-397-0934 to learn more.
