FEDERAL MEDICAL CERTIFICATION REQUIREMENTS CHANGE AS OF JANUARY 30, 2015
EFFECTIVE JANUARY 30, 2015 FEDERAL REGULATIONS REQUIRE MOTOR CARRIERS TO HAVE A PRINTED CDL ABSTRACT FOR DRIVERS WHO REQUIRE A USDOT MEDICAL EXAMINER'S CERTIFICATE AS PART OF THE DRIVERS DRIVER QUALIFICATION FOLDER. THE CDL ABSTRACT REFERRED TO AS AN MVR WILL DIFFER FROM A REGULAR DRIVER ABSTRACT BECAUSE A CDL ABSTRACT WILL CONTAIN MEDICAL CERTIFICATION INFORMATION FROM THE DRIVERS MEDICAL CERTIFICATION ON FILE AT THE DEPARTMENT OF MOTOR VEHICLES.

 

 

 

ALL HUB FACILITIES SERVE BLENDED FUEL TO THEIR CUSTOMERS   


*WE ARE ASKING EVERYONE ESPECIALLY ALL HUB CUSTOMERS TO TAKE CAUTION WHILE DRIVING ON THE ROADWAYS. ICY AND SNOWY CONDITIONS STILL EXIST AND LANE SIZE HAS BEEN DECREASED DUE TO THE SNOW PILE UP ALONG THE SIDES OF THE ROADS. WE ARE ALSO ASKING ALL HUB CUSTOMERS AND THEIR DRIVERS TO MAKE SURE THEIR AIR TANKS ARE DRAINED EVERY NIGHT TO ELIMINATE FROZEN AIRLINES IN THE MORNING. 


BE CAREFUL! DRIVE SAFELY!

TRUCKING THRU NEW JERSEY ANYTIME SOON?

MAKE SURE YOU CHECK OUT THIS LINK  WWW.STATE.NJ.US/TREASURY/TAXATION/VOLDISC/SHML BEFORE YOU DO.

NEW JERSEY HAS REVITALIZED THEIR CORPORATE TAX PROGRAM THROUGH THE DIVISION OF TAXATION. IF YOU TRAVEL TO AND DELIVER ANYTHING IN THE STATE YOU MUST BE REGITERED AND PAY CORPORATE TAXES. DON'T TRY YOU LUCK AND GET STUCK!

 


 

 

BIO DIESEL ISN'T A FRIEND OF FREEZING TEMPERATURES!

IF YOUR USING BIO DIESEL TODAY MAKE SURE ITS BLENDED PROPERLY FOR COLD WEATHER OR YOU WILL BE IN FOR SOME UNNECESSARY DOWNTIME.  

WHEN THE FUEL FREEZES THE TRUCK WON'T RUN AND HEAT THE CAB, NOT A GOOD SITUATION FOR THE DRIVER. 

 

 


 

 

FMCSA DEACTIVATING DOT NUMBERS


DOT IS TO DEACTIVATE ALL DOT#'S OF CARRIERS WHO HAVEN'T UPDATED THEIR DOT REGISTRATION OR VEHICLE MILES TRAVELED (VMT).


ALL CARRIERS WHO FAIL TO MEET THEIR BIANNUAL RESPONSIBILITITES WILL FACE UP TO $1000. PER DAY WITH A MAXIMUM OF $10,000. PER ISSUE.


THIS IS REAL, NO BOLOGNA!



 

 

IT'S BLACK ICE TIME!

WHEN THE ROADWAY GLISSENS IT'S TIME TO LISTEN  

BE CAREFUL DRIVING WHEN TEMPERATURES ARE FREEZING, BLACK ICE ONLY NEEDS A SNIFF OF CONDENSATION TO MAKE THE ROADWAYS HAZARDOUS. 


SNOW ISN'T FUN EITHER


PLEASE AVOID TRAVELING OFF THE ROADWAYS WHERE DRIFTING SNOW AND ICEY ROADWAYS COULD CAUSE THE VEHICLE TO GET STUCK.


AVOID PARKING IN ICEY LOADING DOCKS


AVOID PARKING NEXT TO BUILDINGS WITH OVERHANGS WHERE SNOW COULD SLID ONTO TRUCK ROOFS


REMEMBER THAT SNOW MELTS AND WILL CAUSE OTHER ISSUES SO
