  • Annual CVSA Road Check June 7-9

    by User Not Found | May 27, 2016

    052716_CVSARoadCheck_ImageThe Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance's (CVSA) Annual International Roadcheck is June 7-9, 2016. It’s the largest targeted enforcement program on commercial motor vehicles in the world, with an average of 17 trucks or buses inspected every minute across North America. 

    What the inspectors are looking for

    • Brakes 
    • Coupling Devices 
    • Fuel & Exhaust Systems 
    • Frame, Van & Open-Top Trailers 
    • Lighting 
    • Securement of Cargo 
    • Steering 
    • Suspension 
    • Tires, Wheels, Rims & Hubs 

    "The costs associated with being put out of service are insignificant when compared to the cost of crashes with innocent people," advises the CVSA. If you are put out of service, it will cost you an average of $861 – which does not include the cost of fines or repairs as a result of the inspection.  

    Overall OOS violations have been decreasing over the past few years. Review the chart below. 


    Since its inception in 1988, roadside inspections conducted during International Roadcheck have numbered more than 1.4 million. The International Roadcheck also provides an opportunity to educate the industry and the general public about the importance of safe commercial motor vehicle operations and the North American roadside inspection program. 

    The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) sponsors International Roadcheck with participation by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration, Canadian Council of Motor Transport Administrators, Transport Canada and the Secretariat of Communications and Transportation (Mexico).

  • May is Motorcycle Awareness Month

    by User Not Found | May 18, 2016

    052016_MotorcycleAwareness_ImageMay is Motorcycle Awareness Month and the American Trucking Association (ATA)and the ATA’s Share the Road Highway Safety Program is urging all motorists to be aware of motorcycles when driving on our highways and to open dialogue between motorcyclists and truck drivers.

    “Like motorcyclists, truck drivers find a certain level of comfort and enjoyment while out on the highway,” said professional truck driver John McKown (UPS Freight). “With that said, we need to take every safety precaution possible and teach each other about our vehicles so that we can continue to take advantage of the nation’s roads.”

    ATA’s Share the Road professional truck drivers compiled a list of truck safety tips for motorcyclists looking to stay safe this driving season.  

    • Space is time, and time saves lives: At 65 mph, trucks and motorcycles are traveling almost 100 feet per second. It takes a fully loaded tractor-trailer more than the length of a football field to come to a complete stop. Maintain a safe distance in front of trucks.
    • Look for the driver in the mirror before beginning to pass. If the driver can’t see you, then he or she has no way of knowing you are there.
    • When passing, never linger alongside a truck. Due to large blindspots on all sides of a truck, it becomes easy for a motorcycle to become invisible to a truck driver.
    • When riding behind a truck, maintain at least a 4 second following distance. Stay far enough back to see the driver’s mirrors. This gives you enough time to maneuver around debris and react to emergencies.
    • When riding as a group in a stagger pattern, it is safest to pass the truck in single file, staying to the far side of the lane.
    • When possible, avoid passing on the right side. The right blindspot is the largest blindspot and runs the length of the truck, extending out three lanes. Pass on the left. 
    • Always wear a helmet. It is estimated that 1,699 motorcyclists’ lives were saved by a helmet in 2012.

  • Centerline Shines a Spotlight on Brandon Wilson

    by User Not Found | May 06, 2016

    Brandon Wilson started working for Centerline in April 2015 based in Deridder, Louisiana in our Dedicated Drivers division. A 3rd generation driver, what he likes most about his job is being on the open road and driving the “big truck.”

    He always had a passion for driving. He grew up seeing his grandfather hauling logs, his father driving in Vietnam while serving in the Army.  “Little boys play with trucks and now I drive one,” Brandon said.

    He and his wife, Nicole, used to run OTR together and said they saw so many beautiful things while crossing the country. One in particular, he said, was watching the sunrise over Lake Pontchartrain.

    Brandon and Nicole have 3 children; daughters ages 14 and 8 a 3-month old son so flexibility with Centerline that allows him to be “in control of his day” is valuable.

    In his spare time, Brandon enjoys using his HAM radio and communicating with people all over the world. He is so savvy with radio communications, he has been licensed with the FCC to the last year.

    Brandon’s advice for other truck drivers or those thinking about it? "Do what you love and love what you do. This industry can be tough but if your heart is in it, it can be very rewarding."

  • FAST Act Highway Bill Hot Topic at NPTC Annual Meeting

    by Super Admin | May 02, 2016

    This year's National Private Truck Council's (NPTC) Annual Meeting was held April 24 – April 26, 2016 at the Duke Energy Center in Cincinnati where general counsel, Rich Schweitzer took only 30 mins to address upcoming regulation changes for trucking.  

    Schweitzer took aim at all the measures within the FAST Act highway bill and reforming certain existing FMCSA rules. compiled a great list of the features. Please see them below

    FAST Act’s CSA Provisions 

    • The National Academies of Science is to conduct an 18-month study of CSA and SMS to analyze the accuracy of BASICs in identifying high-risk carriers and predicting future crash risk and crash severity 

    • The study will review methodology used to calculate BASIC percentiles, weights assigned to violations, ties between crash risk and specific violations, and use of non-fault crashes 

    • A Corrective Action Plan is to be submitted to Congress 120 days after the report. The plan must tell how FMCSA will address deficiencies identified in the study 

    • DOT IG is to assess whether the plan complies with the February 2014 IG Report on CSA

    FAST Act on CSA Data Reform 

    • FMCSA may not make publicly available information on analysis of violations, non-fault crashes, or BASIC percentiles until IG concerns are addressed 

    • Also, the agency may not use CSA data on alerts or relative percentiles for safety fitness determinations until IG concerns are addressed and report to Congress completed. However, FMCSA may still use data to identify carriers for enforcement actions 

    • As of Dec. 4, 2015, BASIC data for property carriers was taken off CSA website; the agency restored absolute scores on March 7, 2016 

    FAST Act impact on Beyond Compliance initiative 

    • On April 19, FMCSA announced it is seeking input on implementation of the FAST Act requirement that FMCSA must offer a credit or improved SMS score for any carrier that: installs advanced safety equipment, uses enhanced driver fitness measures, adopts fleet safety management tools technologies, and programs, or satisfies other standards determined to be appropriate by the agency

  • New Driver MER Requirement Now in Effect

    by Super Admin | Apr 22, 2016


    Changes to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s medical examination regulations took effect on April 20. Drivers will have to complete a Medical Examination Report Form for their DOT physical. The new form includes several more questions about the driver’s medical history. 

    The rule requires medical personnel to electronically submit the results on the National Registry once a month. Drivers are required to carry their exam certificate for 15 days after the physical. This is to ensure the driver has proof of medical certification while the exam results may still be loading into the database. After the 15 days, law enforcement will have access to the records in the database and the drivers will not need to carry a copy. 

    After June 22, 2018, medical examiners will be required to submit the test results by the end of the day and drivers will not have to carry medical certification at all. 

    MEs and CMV drivers with questions are directed to contact the FMCSA Medical Programs Division at (202) 366-4001 or

  • Changing the Face of the Trucking Industry

    by User Not Found | Apr 08, 2016

    The industry-wide image and education movement, Trucking Moves America Forward (TMAF), has reported significant achievements in the past year in its mission to impact public perception of the trucking industry.

    TMAF co-chairman and president of Ohio-based Jet Express, Kevin Burch, said in a news conference at the Mid-America Trucking Show March 31 that is has achieved its goal of placing more than 100 trailer wraps on the road.

    "These 'moving billboards,' each seen by as many as 16 million people per city, are sending a message every day that our industry is more than just large vehicles on the highways," said Burch. "We're moving America forward by transporting products and freight that make life possible, serving as an essential provider to our communities and adding value to our economy."

    Next year's goal is to get an additional 200 wraps placed.

    American Trucking Association (ATA) America's Road Team captain and driver for FedEx Freight, Don Logan, said he has 2.4 million accident-free miles and where the industry falls short is telling that story. "That's why the TMAF is so important," he said.

    The TMAF continues to expand it's presence and needs your help in continuing to grow and spread the work. Get involved on their website, and follow them on social media. 

  • Centerline Shines a Spotlight on Bernard Gasca

    by User Not Found | Mar 30, 2016
    • Barnard Gasca’s background 

    In 2003, Bernard Gasca joined C.R. England where he was trained and drove OTR for a short period of time and transitioned into a local route. Driving trucks was something Bernard always wanted to do. He has memories as a child hearing the trucks coming down the hill and talking on a CB radio with his grandfather. 

    When did he start driving for Centerline? 

    Bernard joined the Centerline family in 2003 after the company he worked for was impacted by the housing collapse. He wanted to stay local so he could be close to his family and Centerline had the best opportunities for him. 

    What does Bernard like most about driving? 

    Bernard liked being out on the road; the neighborhoods, cities, landscapes. The beauty of nature; sunsets, sunrises and city lights. “You are free, out alone on your own and just enjoying the music. The landscapes are so different,” said Bernard. 

    Barnard’s Family 

    Bernard has 3 kids, the oldest is his 24-year-old son who is currently attending college and working full time. His 2nd oldest son is 19 and attends Cal State - Fullerton. His youngest is his 13-year-old daughter. Being near his children when they were growing up was important to Bernard. He said he was missing their activities and their daily lives when working OTR. So, working local with Centerline helped that.  

    Advice for other and new drivers? 

    “Be patient. Understand your limitations as a driver whether you are over-the-road or local. There is fatigue, a mental strain, be aware of that. If you’re hesitant get out and look. Keep in good contact with your family – make it a priority – and stay grounded.”

  • FMCSA Simplifying Process for Vets to Transition to Trucking Industry

    by User Not Found | Mar 24, 2016

    03.24.16 FMCSA_ImageThe Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) is issuing a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NRPM) to extend the time period for applying for a skills test waiver from 90 days to 1 year after leaving a military position requiring the operation of a commercial motor vehicle.

    The NPRM was published in the Federal Register on March 16 and will be accepting comments until May 16, 2016.

    “The FMCSA believes that this would give former military personnel a better opportunity to obtain a CDL in a way that will not negatively affect safety,” the agency said.

    To date, the FMCSA reports that over 10,000 veterans have utilized the skills test waiver to obtain a CDL. “The motor carrier industry would also benefit from a larger supply of licenses CMV drivers,” the agency continued.

    Centerline hires our heroes and will help with accessing the waiver and obtaining a CDL. Learn more about how Centerline supports veterans transitioning into civilian life.

    RI Tolling Image

    Rhode Island Governor, Gina Raimondo, signed into law February 11, a bill that would impose tolls on big-rig trucks, up to $20 for an 18-wheeler, traveling through the country’s smallest state on I-95.

    After 10 hours of combined debate, the State Senate and House of Representatives passed the bill and the Governor immediately signed it into law. Federal records show the state has the highest percentage of structurally deficient bridges and the proposed toll structure will help cover repair costs over the next 10-years.

    This bill is the culmination of an eight-month debate that captivated the little state and infuriated its truckers. What do you think of the toll program?

    Dedication to Safety Image

    New data released by the Department of Transportation (DOT) analyzed by the American Trucking Associations (ATA) show that the rate of truck-involved fatalities is declining.

    At the same time the number of miles driven by truck driver rose to more than 279 billion, there was a decline of 61 truck-involved fatalities in 2014, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Over the last 10 years, the fatality rate has fallen over 40%. The ATA attributes this decline to aggressive traffic enforcement and education programs aimed at changing motorists unsafe behaviors.

    In the release from the ATA, Executive Vice President for National Advocacy with the ATA, Dave Osiecki, said, “Our industry has worked hard, and invested in technology and training to improve highway safety not just for our drivers, but for all motorists.” And while there is more work to do, it is gratifying to see those efforts paying off in safer roads for all of us.”

    At Centerline your safety is a top priority. We set annual safety goals and in 2015 we met that goal and saw our lowest number of injuries to date. Learn more about what we are doing to keep YOU safe!

  • Big Rig Parking. There's An App for That!

    by Super Admin | Mar 24, 2016
    Parking Safety

    90 percent of truck drivers and logistics professionals report having difficulty finding safe and legal parking during rest periods at night according to a new study “Jason’s Law Truck Parking Survey Results and Comparative Analysis” released by the United States Department of Transportation Federal Highway Administration (FHA).

    The USDOT also found the majority of respondents reported truck parking shortages at all times of the day on every day of the week. They also found that the major hurdle in addressing the shortage is there is no single entity responsible for truck parking facilities. As it currently stands, 88 percent of the total 309,000 legal truck parking spaces are found at private truck stops, as opposed to public rest areas.

    To attempt to help drivers identify these legal parking spots, the FHA funded an app run by the I-95 Corridor Coalition: Truck’N’Park. According to the website, the app is“designed to provide accurate, up-to-the-minute information on available truck parking spaces at selected parking facilities along the I-95 Corridor.”

    In addition to the app, the website and their toll-free number 855-TRK-PARK (855-875-7275) are available to access parking information. You are even able to schedule an “automatic return call from the system to update you on the number of available parking spaces as conditions change.” 

  • 2016 UCR Enforcement Delayed

    by Super Admin | Mar 24, 2016

    TruckingThe Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) issued a bulletin last week announcing the Unified Carrier Registration Agreement (UCR) has been delayed until Feb. 1, 2016.

    The original bulletin called for enforcement to begin Jan. 1, however due to reported computer glitches in the transition to a fully on-line system the delay was needed.

    All motor carriers subject to the UCR were notified reminders or UCR application forms on how to register and pay 2016 UCR fees online at The Federal Motor Carrier Administration (FMCSA) added a 49 C.F.R violation code to indicate when a carrier is not in compliance.

    41 states are participating in UCR. States not included are Arizona, Florida, Hawaii, Oregon, Maryland, Nevada, New Jersey, Vermont and Wyoming.

    The UCR Board of Directors say, enforcement should only occur after on-line or telephonic verification that the company has failed to register for the 2016 UCR registration year. Roadside enforcement should only be performed for the 2016 UCR registration year unless proof of operation in a previous registration year can be obtained.

      The fee structure is as follows:
    • $76 for0 to 2 Vehicles;
    • $227 for 3 to 5 Vehicles;
    • $452 for 6 to 20 Vehicles;

  • Health = Wealth, a little goes a long way

    by Super Admin | Mar 24, 2016

    Whether you realize it or not, the condition of your health, both physically and mentally, directly relates to your wealth. How you may ask? There isn’t one simple answer, but rather there is a web of connections between the two, especially when it comes to the workplace. Healthy workers are not only happier, but also have increased productivity and reduced absenteeism, workers’ compensation and disability claims. When you are healthier, you spend less money on supplements, medicine and doctors’ visits and more time on activities that rejuvenate and encourage you. This boils over into your attitude at work, and motivation to do well and aspire to grow and keeps your hard-earned dollars in your wallet!

    As a truck driver, it can be challenging to find exercise time everyday due to the sedentary nature of the job, but it is not impossible. Only 14% of the 3 million truck drivers in the United States are not overweight or obese. Of these 3 million truck drivers, only 8% exercise regularly compared to 49% of the general population. TravelCenters of America is trying to improve this number, and help truck drivers kick off a healthy 2016 by offering a selection of fitness, food and wellness options from its StayFit Program. Drivers would have access to things like healthy grab ‘n go snacks and StayFit exercise options at participating TA and Petro stations. Exercise options include, fitness rooms, walking and running trailers, basketball hoops and outdoor fitness areas at many locations.

    One thing to remember as a driver is, you are not alone! 83% of jobs in the U.S. are sedentary in nature. Approximately 50% of the U.S. population is not regularly physically active, and 25% are not active at all. Here are some creative ways for people to stay active while working their sedentary job:

    1. Walk. Take advantage of your lunch break. No matter how long you have for lunch, devote half of your time to go for a walk and the other half to eating.
    2. Make it easy. Create your own mini fitness center in your truck. TravelCenters of America is offering items like, push-up bars, resistance bands, hand grips, and workout gloves at driver stores. Other items you could keep with you are dumbbells or a jump rope. 10 minutes of exercise can make a big impact if done regularly.
    3. Utilize down time. When dropping off a load, the last thing you want to do is have to wait, but it happens. Take advantage of this and turn it into a positive part of your day by working out. Use the light equipment in your truck, go for a walk or jump rope while waiting.
  • Top 2015 Stories Out of Washington

    by Super Admin | Mar 24, 2016

    Capital BuildingIn 2015, the trucking community and government came together, through lobbying and debating, to address several topics affecting the trucking industry, furthering many major initiatives. These are the top five.

    1. Beyond Compliance: The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) requested public comment on the proposed Beyond Compliance program. The initiative proposes an incentive-based approach that offers “voluntary programs implemented by motor carriers that exceed regulatory requirements” in hopes to improve safety by reducing the number and severity of crashes.
    2. Electronic Stability: The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) issued the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 136, which mandates the use of electronic stability control systems on Class 7-8 trucks and large buses. The rule will take effect in 2017, however, many fleets have already voluntarily begun the switch.
    3. Phase 2 GHG/MPG: The proposed fuel economy and greenhouse gas emissions rules target 2021-2027 model year trucks and tractors and 2018-2027 MY trailers. The new rule differs from Phase 1 in a few ways. For example, it would regulate trailers, set GHG limits for complete vehicles including trailers and would set separate engine fuel efficiency standards for light, medium and heavy duty vehicles.
    4. Electronic Logging: The FMCSA released the final rule mandating the use of electronic logging devices (ELD). Truck and bus drivers have two years to make the switch. David Heller, TCA Director of Safety and Policy says the rule is to, “alleviate some of the burdens regarding supporting documents, eases compliance with the Hours-of-Service Regulations and furthers the efforts of the agency in the fight against driver coercion and harassment.”
    5. Highway Bill: The long awaited highway bill was passed just before the New Year. TheFixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act is a fully funded five year bill totaling $305 billion in highway and trucking projects.

    2015 brought in some great new rules and reforms in the trucking industry setting up 2016 to be a winning year.

  • States Consider New Mandate Allowing Police to Pull Over Truckers for too Much Snow

    by Super Admin | Mar 24, 2016

    snowy trucks Each year when winter rolls around, truck drivers are encouraged to clear snow and ice off of their trucks. The topic of mandating snow and ice removal is not a new one in most states. Already, states like Alabama, Connecticut, Georgia, Iowa, Michigan, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island and Wisconsin have laws addressing large accumulations of snow and ice on top of vehicles, allowing police officers to ticket if the accumulation is large and poses a threat to safety.

    Many point out that the falling piles of snow and ice from trucks causes a lot of damage and hazard to other motorists. However despite the hazard, OOIDA and numerous truck drivers are opposed to a rule allowing police officers to pull over and ticket a truck driver for this reason because it would be nearly impossible for drivers to comply with. There isn’t always a safe way for a driver to even know how much snow and ice has accumulated nor how to clear the top of his truck which can be over 14-feet in the air in wet slippery conditions. What does your company recommend regarding snow/ice removal?

    Check out the current state laws in place.
