IWLA Requests to Take Part in Study on Driver Compensation and Detention
In a letter addressed to Department of Labor (DOL) Secretary Marty Walsh and Department of Transportation (DOT) Secretary Pete Buttigieg, IWLA expressed its desire to assist in the outreach of industry stakeholders for a study being conducted on driver compensation and detention. The study is being conducted as part of the Biden-Harris administration’s Trucking Action Plan, an outline of actions being carried out by the DOT and DOL to expand the U.S. trucking workforce.
As part of the study, DOL and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) will study driver detention or the time drivers spend to pick up and drop off freight. 3PL warehouses study and monitor load and detention times carefully, often using the data as a key performance indicator. The careful attention to efficient freight velocity, the loading and unloading of goods, and IWLA’s expertise concerning the nuances between various warehouse business models makes the association uniquely qualified to assist in the outreach of industry stakeholders.
