Arbitration program policies have undergone many changes over the last few decades. For example, 1996 was an important year for interstate movers. That’s when an important requirement got put in place. Movers had to adjust to the change so that they could maintain registration. So, what did the movers now have to do? They had to provide neutral binding arbitration. That arbitration extends toward all interstate shipments connected to individual shippers. This is to help people resolve their disputed claims. 

2006 was another important year for arbitration policies. That’s when the Household Goods Movers Oversight and Reform Act went into effect. The act features expanded requirements that concern the following two factors.

1. Disputes that have to do with extra charges. These charges get billed to each shipper once a shipment’s delivered.
2. Disputes that concern claims involving loss and damage.


THE 2 FORMS OF CONCILIATION PROGRAM DISPUTES

Arbitration regulations reflect upon two major forms of disputes. Both of which fall under arbitration statutory requirements. The types of disputes affect all sorts of interstate Household movers and Shippers.

-Interceding Program Dispute #1

The first type of arbitration dispute refers to claims for loss and damage. The loss and damages related to articles that get transported in shipments. This is when the settlement of a claim must get decided. What does this arbitration focus on? Whether there was real loss or damage through means of the shipment. This form of the dispute is often a mandatory arbitration requirement. In fact, it always is unless the dispute-amount totals more than $10,000. 

-Program for household goods Dispute #2

The second form of arbitration dispute deals with extra charges. These are often extra charges applied to shippers through the movers. The charges get applied once shipments have already gotten delivered. This form of a dispute is another mandatory arbitration rule. But keep the following notion in mind. The amount of the dispute should total less than $10,000.

THE NEW & REVISED PROGRAM RULES


There are carriers that have refused to pay awards through their arbitration programs. As a result of this, Rule 22 has gotten added as an official policy. The rule offers specific insights detailing when award payments get sent out.

-New Intervention Services Rule 22

This Arbitration program DOT rule gets referred to as the Order of the Arbitrator. It’s also sometimes referred to as the Satisfaction of Award and is attached to your USDOT Number. It stipulates that the standard period of payment for an Award is 45 days. Those days begin once the Order/Award gets issued. Keep in mind that this rule is subject to the framework of Rules 24 and Rule 25. Feel free to scroll below to read about Rule 24 and Rule 25. (Keep in mind that Rule 25 is now known as Rule 23.)

-New Program Rule 24

This new arbitration program rule focuses on corrections involving Orders and Awards. What is the rule's main purpose? It is to get rid of the extra $200 administrative fee. As you may know, that fee was always required for correcting clerical errors. FORUM has the power to correct any administrative or clerical errors/mistakes. The errors/mistakes refer to omission/oversight when Awards or Orders get issued. So, who can request a correction through Arbitration Program Rule 24? A party or the FORUM/arbitrator can make a request. Once again, there is now no fee for making this type of request.

-Revised Intervention Program Rule 25

Rule 25 of the Arbitration Program is now revised. The rule refers to reconsidering Orders and Awards. Parties can, of course, request modifications for Orders and Awards. Each party must make that request within 20 calendar days after an Order/Awards. All requesting parties first have to file their requests with the FORUM. Next, they must pay a fee of two hundred dollars to the FORUM. No party can make a second request after the first one. 

The FORUM then notifies the responding party about the request. This gets done on an immediate basis. The responding party receives one official copy of the request. That’s when the twenty-day rule comes into play. The responding party then has 20 calendar days to file an official response. Then, the arbitrator can reconsider the award if the following factors become met:

1. The Program Order or Award has not gotten finalized. 

2. The Program Order or Award features obvious mistakes in the material. Also, the Order/Award cannot seem too ambiguous to the arbitrator.

3. An Arbitrator has not made an official decision. That potential decision references the submitted Arbitration program issue. 

4. An arbitrator determines the issue has not gotten agreed-upon for submission. This applies to both parties within the arbitration process.

Revised Program Forum Fees
 


A decade ago, the National Arbitration Forum (FORUM) made an important request. They asked the AMSA Board to increase the fees that the FORUM assesses. This applies toward the administration of many cases. The new fees (listed below) went into effect on October 1, 2010. They replace the previous fees that were active as of January 1, 2006.  But keep in mind that there are three fees that have not gotten increased:

1. The fee for oral hearings. 

2. The modification/late fee.

3. The extension fee.

Also, remember that the new fees listed below are part of a prorated basis. The program got designed so that customers could take care of claims away from court. Thus, the Board did not want customer fees to discourage people from taking part in the program. Also, carriers have to pay a lot more in small claims and district courts. That’s why the FORUM admin-fees get considered as a good deal by many industry experts. Here are the updated fees:

-If the amount of the disputed claim is below $10,000, the admin-fee is $650. The customer’s share of the admin-fee is $300. The carrier’s share of the admin-fee is $350.

-If the amount of the disputed claim is $10,000 - $20,000, the admin-fee is $700. The customer’s share of the admin-fee is $320. The carrier’s share of the admin-fee is $375.

-If the amount of the disputed claim is $20,000 - $30,000, the admin-fee is $750. The customer’s share of the admin-fee is $350. The carrier’s share of the admin-fee is $400.

-If the amount of the disputed claim is $30,000 - $40,000, the admin-fee is $800. The customer’s share of the admin-fee is $375. The carrier’s share of the admin-fee is $425.

-If the amount of the disputed claim is $40,000 - $50,000, the admin-fee is $850. The customer’s share of the admin-fee is $400. The carrier’s share of the admin-fee is $450.

-If the amount of the disputed claim is over $50,000, the admin-fee is $850 + 1% of the total. The customer’s share of the admin-fee is $400 + 1% of the total. The carrier’s share of the admin-fee is $450 + half of the 1% of the total.

A boat trailer is a trailer designed to launch, retrieve, carry and sometimes store boats.

The public idea of the trucking industry in the United States popular culture has gone through many transformations. However, images of the masculine side of trucking are a common theme throughout time. The 1940's first made truckers popular, with their songs and movies about truck drivers. Then in the 1950's they were depicted as heroes of the road, living a life of freedom on the open road. Trucking culture peaked in the 1970's as they were glorified as modern days cowboys, outlaws, and rebels. Since then the portrayal has come with a more negative connotation as we see in the 1990's. Unfortunately, the depiction of truck drivers went from such a positive depiction to that of troubled serial killers.

“ The first original song about truck driving appeared in 1939 when Cliff Bruner and His Boys recorded Ted Daffan's "Truck Driver's Blues," a song explicitly marketed to roadside cafe owners who were installing juke boxes in record numbers to serve truckers and other motorists.” - Shane Hamilton

Many modern trucks are powered by diesel engines, although small to medium size trucks with gas engines exist in the United States. The European Union rules that vehicles with a gross combination of mass up to 3,500 kg (7,716 lb) are also known as light commercial vehicles. Any vehicles exceeding that weight are known as large goods vehicles.

All cars must pass some sort of emission check, such as a smog check to ensure safety. Similarly, trucks are subject to noise emission requirement, which is emanating from the U.S. Noise Control Act. This was intended to protect the public from noise health side effects. The loud noise is due to the way trucks contribute disproportionately to roadway noise. This is primarily due to the elevated stacks and intense tire and aerodynamic noise characteristics.

The interstate moving industry in the United States maintains regulation by the FMCSA, which is part of the USDOT. With only a small staff (fewer than 20 people) available to patrol hundreds of moving companies, enforcement is difficult. As a result of such a small staff, there are in many cases, no regulations that qualify moving companies as 'reliable'. Without this guarantee, it is difficult to a consumer to make a choice. Although, moving companies can provide and often display a DOT license.

In the United States, commercial truck classification is fixed by each vehicle's gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR). There are 8 commercial truck classes, ranging between 1 and 8. Trucks are also classified in a more broad way by the DOT's Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). The FHWA groups them together, determining classes 1-3 as light duty, 4-6 as medium duty, and 7-8 as heavy duty. The United States Environmental Protection Agency has its own separate system of emission classifications for commercial trucks. Similarly, the United States Census Bureau had assigned classifications of its own in its now-discontinued Vehicle Inventory and Use Survey (TIUS, formerly known as the Truck Inventory and Use Survey).

As of January 1, 2000, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) was established as its own separate administration within the U.S. Department of Transportation. This came about under the "Motor Carrier Safety Improvement Act of 1999". The FMCSA is based in Washington, D.C., employing more than 1,000 people throughout all 50 States, including in the District of Columbia. Their staff dedicates themselves to the improvement of safety among commercial motor vehicles (CMV) and to saving lives.

Full truckload carriers normally deliver a semi-trailer to a shipper who will fill the trailer with freight for one destination. Once the trailer is filled, the driver returns to the shipper to collect the required paperwork. Upon receiving the paperwork the driver will then leave with the trailer containing freight. Next, the driver will proceed to the consignee and deliver the freight him or herself. At times, a driver will transfer the trailer to another driver who will drive the freight the rest of the way. Full Truckload service (FTL) transit times are generally restricted by the driver's availability. This is according to Hours of Service regulations and distance. It is typically accepted that Full Truckload carriers will transport freight at an average rate of 47 miles per hour. This includes traffic jams, queues at intersections, other factors that influence transit time.  

Logistics is generally the ability to organize and put in place many complex operations at a single time. It is the management of the flow of things to meet the needs of customers or corporations. Resources managed in logistics includes tangible items such as food, materials, animals, equipment, etc. Not to mention the items that are not tangible such as time and information. This means that the movement of physical items, such as in the moving industry, involves a clear understanding of solid workflow. Such logistics can involve the handling of necessary materials, producing, packaging, inventory, transportation, warehousing, and often security.

A circumferential route refers to a public transportation system that follows the route in the shape of a circle. Over time a nickname developed in the European Union, calling transportation networks such as these a "ring road". This is no surprise as Europe has several famous "ring roads" such as the Berliner Ring, the Brussels Ring, the Amsterdam Ring, the Boulevard Périphérique around Paris and the Leeds Inner and Outer ring roads. Other countries adopted the term as well which in turn made the name go international. Australia's Melbourne's Western Ring Road and India's Hyderabad's Outer Ring Road both adopted the name. However in Canada, the term is most commonly used, with "orbital" used to a much lesser extent.   On the contrary, the United States calls many "ring roads" as belt-lines, beltways, or loops instead. For example, the Capital Beltway around Washington, D.C. Some ring roads use terminology such as "Inner Loop" and "Outer Loop". This is, of course, for the sake of directional sense, since compass directions cannot be determined around the entire loop.

The feature film "Joy Ride" premiered in 2001, portraying the story of two college-age brothers who by a CB radio while taking a road trip. Although the plot seems lighthearted, it takes a quick turn after one of the brothers attempts a prank on an unknown truck driver. They soon find out the dangerous intentions of this killer driver, who is set on getting his revenge. Seven years later in 2008 the sequel "Joy Ride 2: Dead Ahead" came out on DVD only. Similar to its predecessor, the plot involves another murdering truck driver, a.k.a "Rusty Nail". He essentially plays psychological mind games with a young couple on a road trip.

The year of 1977 marked the release of the infamous Smokey and the Bandit. It went on to be the third highest grossing film that year, following tough competitors like Star Wars and Close Encounters of the Third Kind. Burt Reynolds plays the protagonist, or "The Bandit", who escorts "The Snowman" in order to deliver bootleg beer. Reynolds once stated he envisioned trucking as a "hedonistic joyride entirely devoid from economic reality"   Another action film in 1977 also focused on truck drivers, as was the trend it seems. Breaker! Breaker! starring infamous Chuck Norris also focused on truck drivers. They were also displaying movie posters with the catch phrase "... he's got a CB radio and a hundred friends who just might get mad!"

The decade of the 70's in the United States was a memorable one, especially for the notion of truck driving. This seemed to dramatically increase popularity among trucker culture. Throughout this era, and even in today's society, truck drivers are romanticized as modern-day cowboys and outlaws. These stereotypes were due to their use of Citizens Band (CB) radios to swap information with other drivers. Information regarding the locations of police officers and transportation authorities. The general public took an interest in the truckers 'way of life' as well. Both drivers and the public took interest in plaid shirts, trucker hats, CB radios, and CB slang.

A Ministry of Transport (or) Transportation is responsible for transportation within a country. Administration usually falls upon the Minister for Transport. The term may also be applied to the departments or other government agencies administering transport in a nation who do not use ministers. There are various and vast responsibilities for agencies to oversee such as road safety. Others may include civil aviation, maritime transport, rail transport and so on. They continue to develop government transportation policy and organize public transit. All while trying to maintain and construct infrastructural projects. Some ministries have additional responsibilities in related policy areas as mentioned above.

Tracing the origins of particular words can be quite different with so many words in the English Dictionary. Some say the word "truck" might have come from a back-formation of "truckle", meaning "small wheel" or "pulley". In turn, both sources emanate from the Greek trokhos (τροχός), meaning "wheel", from trekhein (τρέχειν, "to run").

There many reasons for moving, each one with a unique and specific reason as to why. Relocation services, employee relocation, or workforce mobility can create a range of processes. This process of transferring employees, their families, and/or entire departments of a business to a new location can be difficult. Like some types of employee benefits, these matters are dealt with by human resources specialists within a corporation.

With the ending of World War I, several developments were made to enhance trucks. Such an example would be by putting pneumatic tires replaced the previously common full rubber versions. These advancements continued, including electric starters, power brakes, 4, 6, and 8 cylinder engines. Closed cabs and electric lighting followed. The modern semi-trailer truck also debuted. Additionally, touring car builders such as Ford and Renault entered the heavy truck market.
