The Moving Authority Improvement Packet: Improve the Operations of Your Company Today

Moving Authority is proud to help companies succeed through our Improvement Packet. All sorts of trucking and transportation organizations across the US use our packet. Why? So that they can make their business processes more efficient. Plus, the Improvement Packet focuses on FMCSA and DOT compliance. It contains processes that emphasize maintaining superb government standing. We've featured the key areas of the Improvement Packet below. If you have any questions about the packet, do not hesitate to call Moving Authority.

Drug and Alcohol Claims Package

Drug and alcohol testing and compliance are central aspects of any trucking business. Through the Improvement Packet, your business can discover new, improved processes. This way, you can have a winning system in place to keep your drivers on the road. Moving Authority can do it all when it comes to drug and alcohol claims. From helping you find a local testing facility to preparing for random testing. As you know, the FMCSA and DOT are strict when it comes to drug and alcohol use. And it’s the mission of Moving Authority to help you follow all rules and requirements.

There are thousands of FMCSA and DOT-approved drug testing locations. Moving Authority can help you find a location near your business. Then, we can facilitate consistent testing that adheres to all government regulations. This way, the Improvement Packet can do more than keep you in compliance. It can boost the safety of your drivers and other drivers across public roads. Almost all commercial truck drivers become subject to drug and alcohol testing. That’s because it applies to any vehicle with a gross vehicle weight rating of 26,000+. Also, any driver transporting hazardous materials is also subject to testing. And our mission is to prevent claims through testing solutions.

Moving Authority can provide your business with all sorts of DOT clearinghouse processes. From pre-employment testing to filling out claims paperwork. The first step is for us to educate your workers on drug and alcohol requirements. We can do so by helping you create a compliant alcohol and drug policy. Once the policy is in place, we can help you set up a drug and alcohol testing program. But we don't stop there. Moving Authority can provide safety training to supervisors and employees alike. Our team can make sure that your forms, records, and files all focus on safety. Otherwise, the DOT and FMCSA could penalize or fine your company. We also focus on helping transportation organizations submit reports to the FMCSA. One key report that we can help you submit is an annual drug and alcohol report.  Our mission is to reduce the number of claims that your business has to deal with. And we can do so through this Improvement Packet.

Carrier Agreement Contract Services

Using a first-rate carrier agreement contract is crucial to the success of a company. And through our Improvement Packet, Moving Authority can improve your contract processes. Our transportation experts can do it all when it comes to contracts. From assessing pending contracts to drafting new contracts on your behalf. We also specialize in formatting and executing broker carrier agreements. This way, your business can use contracts ideal for hauling freight and goods. If you're struggling to draft contracts, our team can supply you with templates. These carrier agreements and contract templates can help your business succeed. 

As trucking industry professionals, we know how stressful it feels to execute contracts. In fact, that’s a key reason why this Improvement Packet exists. Our team can work one-on-one with any key player related to your contract. From customers to freight brokers. This way, we can help ensure that you receive the rate agreed to within a freight contract. Plus, our experts can also help you with executing broker carrier agreements. You're even welcome to contact us if someone violates your contract or agreement. In that case, the Moving Authority team can supply you with ideal solutions.

When we assist carriers with contracts, our experts apply their deep industry knowledge. And that knowledge covers all aspects of FMCSA and DOT rules and regulations. This is crucial for ensuring that every contract and agreement follows the law. But we don't stop there. Moving Authority can also supply many other services for carrier contracts and agreements. We can help your business with liability and insurance. Plus, we can teach your team advanced procedures for invoicing. After all, our mission is for every Moving Authority customer to make more money ASAP. Carriers have to know more than only when they will get paid. They must also understand the type of liability that’s at play. Without informed broker carrier agreements, trucking freight can't get booked. And we want your business to to deliver goods and freight without any delays. That can happen thanks to the processes within this Improvement Packet.

Warehouse Receipt Contract Guidance

As you know, warehouse receipts are some of the most crucial documents in the industry. Each receipt guarantees the quality and quantity of stored items in your facility. Any business could experience many claims and problems without receipt solutions. And that’s where Moving Authority thrives. We put warehouse receipt processes in place for organizations across the US. Say that you don't use a solid warehouse receipt system. That means you do not have enough proof that a commodity’s in your warehouse. This can lead to major legal and financial problems for any moving and storage business. But through an improvement to your active contract system, you can prevent trouble. That’s why our Improvement Packet can guide you toward a better contract system.

Contract review is a crucial aspect of the warehouse receipt process. Moving and storage companies can experience an emergency at any time. Your warehouse manager could call you right now and say that a break-in took place. Or, that your warehouse has gotten flooded and some goods are now ruined. This is why moving and storage companies must have the right level of insurance. Insurance featured in a contract can protect your business against emergencies. And Moving Authority can help you find the right insurance policy for your warehouse. Then, we can insert that policy into your current warehouse receipt contract template. Otherwise, your company could risk having its claims get denied. And that could lead to a massive financial burden. Your current receipt system could already limit your liability. But you still need more protection. And that’s why we provide contract review and contract template services. You can access these receipt-related services through the Improvement Packet.

If you need an improved warehouse receipt template, our experts can assist. We’ve designed thousands of custom receipt templates for transportation businesses. Let’s say your contract has inaccurate tariff wording or outdated warehouse protections. Either of these factors can restrict the coverage that your company receives. Again, this is why it’s best to have Moving Authority review your warehouse insurance. Only then can we provide you with a receipt template for your protection. Plus, we can ensure all your warehouse receipt processes are up-to-date. If not, we can correct your template ASAP to prevent claims against your organization. Remember, the last thing you want to have is an open-ended receipt system. Instead, you need a system crafted by the industry experts at Moving Authority. And you can access that system through our Improvement Packet.

The Moving Authority Employee Package

One of the most important aspects of the Improvement Packet focuses on the staff of any business. It’s called the Moving Authority Employee Package. This package exists to improve the actions and processes of a company’s workers. And there’s no better organization than Moving Authority for doing so. We can do it all. From employee training to education about FMCSA and DOT policies. Let us know your transportation company’s problems and we can put solutions in place. Our package is that simple. And it’s that effective.

Here’s one of the most important aspects of the Moving Authority Employee Package. It can function as a custom package in which we improve the processes that you request. Here’s an example. Say that your drivers keep receiving DOT or FMCSA violations. Your company can contact Moving Authority and give us a summary of these violations. Then, our trucking experts can work one-on-one with your business. (Or, one-on-one with your workers in violation of government policies.) We can help you create an improved system for training and supervising workers. As a result, you won’t have to worry so much about your staff not doing their jobs well. Instead, Moving Authority can provide the tools and resources that employees need to succeed. Do you want to learn more about the Employee Package or the Improvement Packet as a whole? If so, all you've got to do is give Moving Authority a call right now.

In American English, the word "truck" has historically been preceded by a word describing the type of vehicle, such as a "tanker truck". In British English, preference would lie with "tanker" or "petrol tanker".

In the United States, shipments larger than about 7,000 kg (15,432 lb) are classified as truckload freight (TL). It is more efficient and affordable for a large shipment to have exclusive use of one larger trailer. This is opposed to having to share space on a smaller Less than Truckload freight carrier.

“ 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

“Country music scholar Bill Malone has gone so far as to say that trucking songs account for the largest component of work songs in the country music catalog. For a style of music that has, since its commercial inception in the 1920s, drawn attention to the coal man, the steel drivin’ man, the railroad worker, and the cowboy, this certainly speaks volumes about the cultural attraction of the trucker in the American popular consciousness.” — Shane Hamilton

“The association of truckers with cowboys and related myths was perhaps most obvious during the urban-cowboy craze of the late 1970s, a period that saw middle-class urbanites wearing cowboy clothing and patronizing simulated cowboy nightclubs. During this time, at least four truck driver movies appeared, CB radio became popular, and truck drivers were prominently featured in all forms of popular media.” — Lawrence J. Ouellet

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.

Trailer stability can be defined as the tendency of a trailer to dissipate side-to-side motion. The initial motion may be caused by aerodynamic forces, such as from a cross wind or a passing vehicle. One common criterion for stability is the center of mass location with respect to the wheels, which can usually be detected by tongue weight. If the center of mass of the trailer is behind its wheels, therefore having a negative tongue weight, the trailer will likely be unstable. Another parameter which is less commonly a factor is the trailer moment of inertia. Even if the center of mass is forward of the wheels, a trailer with a long load, and thus large moment of inertia, may be unstable.

Popular among campers is the use of lightweight trailers, such as aerodynamic trailers. These can be towed by a small car, such as the BMW Air Camper. They are built with the intent to lower the tow of the vehicle, thus minimizing drag.

The United States' Interstate Highway System is full of bypasses and loops with the designation of a three-digit number. Usually beginning with an even digit, it is important to note that this pattern is highly inconsistent. For example, in Des Moines, Iowa the genuine bypass is the main route. More specifically, it is Interstate 35 and Interstate 80, with the loop into downtown Des Moines being Interstate 235. As it is illustrated in this example, they do not always consistently begin with an even number. However, the 'correct' designation is exemplified in Omaha, Nebraska. In Omaha, Interstate 480 traverses the downtown area, which is bypassed by Interstate 80, Interstate 680, and Interstate 95. Interstate 95 then in turn goes through Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Furthermore, Interstate 295 is the bypass around Philadelphia, which leads into New Jersey. Although this can all be rather confusing, it is most important to understand the Interstate Highway System and the role bypasses play.

In 1938, the now-eliminated Interstate Commerce Commission (ICC) enforced the first Hours of Service (HOS) rules. Drivers became limited to 12 hours of work within a 15-hour period. At this time, work included loading, unloading, driving, handling freight, preparing reports, preparing vehicles for service, or performing any other duty in relation to the transportation of passengers or property.   The ICC intended for the 3-hour difference between 12 hours of work and 15 hours on-duty to be used for meals and rest breaks. This meant that the weekly max was limited to 60 hours over 7 days (non-daily drivers), or 70 hours over 8 days (daily drivers). With these rules in place, it allowed 12 hours of work within a 15-hour period, 9 hours of rest, with 3 hours for breaks within a 24-hour day.

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.  

Advocation for better transportation began historically in the late 1870s of the United States. This is when the Good Roads Movement first occurred, lasting all the way throughout the 1920s. Bicyclist leaders advocated for improved roads. Their acts led to the turning of local agitation into the national political movement it became.

There are many different types of trailers that are designed to haul livestock, such as cattle or horses. Most commonly used are the stock trailer, which is enclosed on the bottom but has openings at approximately. This opening is at the eye level of the animals in order to allow ventilation. A horse trailer is a much more elaborate form of stock trailer. Generally horses are hauled with the purpose of attending or participating in competition. Due to this, they must be in peak physical condition, so horse trailers are designed for the comfort and safety of the animals. They're typically well-ventilated with windows and vents along with specifically designed suspension. Additionally, horse trailers have internal partitions that assist animals staying upright during travel. It's also to protect other horses from injuring each other in transit. There are also larger horse trailers that may incorporate more specialized areas for horse tack. They may even include elaborate quarters with sleeping areas, bathroom, cooking facilities etc.

The word cargo is in reference to particular goods that are generally used for commercial gain. Cargo transportation is generally meant to mean by ship, boat, or plane. However, the term now applies to all types of freight, now including goods carried by train, van, or truck. This term is now used in the case of goods in the cold-chain, as perishable inventory is always cargo in transport towards its final home. Even when it is held in climate-controlled facilities, it is important to remember perishable goods or inventory have a short life.

In 1986 Stephen King released horror film "Maximum Overdrive", a campy kind of story. It is really about trucks that become animated due to radiation emanating from a passing comet. Oddly enough, the trucks force humans to pump their diesel fuel. Their leader is portrayed as resembling Spider-Man's antagonist Green Goblin.

Relocation, or moving, is the process of vacating a fixed location, such as a residence or business, and settling in a different one. A move might be to a nearby location such as in the same neighborhood or a much farther location in a different city or even a different country. Moving usually includes packing up all belongings, transferring them to the new location, and unpacking them. It will also be necessary to update administrative information. This includes tasks such as notifying the post office, changing registration data, change of insurance, services etc. It is important to remember this step in the relocation process. 

The 1950's were quite different than the years to come. They were more likely to be considered "Knights of the Road", if you will, for helping stranded travelers. In these times truck drivers were envied and were viewed as an opposition to the book "The Organization Man". Bestseller in 1956, author William H. Whyte's novel describes "the man in the gray flannel suit", who sat in an office every day. He's describing a typical office style job that is very structured with managers watching over everyone. Truck drivers represented the opposite of all these concepts. Popular trucking songs glorified the life of drivers as independent "wanderers". Yet, there were attempts to bring back the factory style efficiency, such as using tachnographs. Although most attempts resulted in little success. Drivers routinely sabotaged and discovered new ways to falsify the machine's records.

In 1933, as a part of President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s “New Deal”, the National Recovery Administration requested that each industry creates a “code of fair competition”. The American Highway Freight Association and the Federated Trucking Associations of America met in the spring of 1933 to speak for the trucking association and begin discussing a code. By summer of 1933 the code of competition was completed and ready for approval. The two organizations had also merged to form the American Trucking Associations. The code was approved on February 10, 1934. On May 21, 1934, the first president of the ATA, Ted Rogers, became the first truck operator to sign the code. A special "Blue Eagle" license plate was created for truck operators to indicate compliance with the code.

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.

Light trucks are classified this way because they are car-sized, yet in the U.S. they can be no more than 6,300 kg (13,900 lb). These are used by not only used by individuals but also businesses as well. In the UK they may not weigh more than 3,500 kg (7,700 lb) and are authorized to drive with a driving license for cars. Pickup trucks, popular in North America, are most seen in North America and some regions of Latin America, Asia, and Africa. Although Europe doesn't seem to follow this trend, where the size of the commercial vehicle is most often made as vans.
