TCA – What took you so long?

I applaud TCA for their reversal on the controversial truck/weight legislative issue.  ATA has been the “big brother” in the trucking industry for many smaller associations including TCA.  ATA’s voice and resources in Washington certainly help when the issue is mutual for all e.g. safety and infrastructure.  However in this case, expanding the length of LTL Pup trailers from 28′ – 33′ would encroach too close to the TL market and TCA members. By no longer supporting this legislation, TCA’s new President John Lyboldt is standing up to ATA and supporting his members.  Let’s face it, this part of the legislation really serves no purpose other than helping ATA’s large LTL carriers like UPS and Fed Ex AND is counter to the overall safety on American highways.  ATA and TCA should work together when the benefits are mutual but in this case, not so much.
