• LTL carriers welcome pending 33 foot trailers

  • If passed by the US Congress, new transportation standards would significantly improve industry productivity in exchange for toughening equipment and driver training standards.

    The result will allow LTL carriers up to 18% greater productivity.

    According to the American Trucking Association the use of two twin 33 foot trailers would improve capacity and safety while not increasing truck weights. 

    It would cut the number of truck trips needed to move domestic freight, reduce emissions, and cut the industry's exposure to crashes.
