Winter can be a challenging season for the transportation industry, particularly for long-haul trucking and logistics companies. Adverse weather conditions like snow, ice, and freezing temperatures create a hazardous environment for drivers, which can result in serious accidents and costly delays. To mitigate these risks and ensure the safety of your drivers and the integrity of your cargo, it's essential to take various safety measures and prepare your fleet with the right tools and equipment.
When it comes to truck winter maintenance, your drivers serve as the primary line of defense!
National Tire Safety Week is in full swing and we are back with the second part of our blog series on maximizing tire safety. Tires are one of the most important safety components of your truck, that's why tire care and maintenance should be a top priority. In Part 1, we discussed the importance of tire pressure monitoring systems and the significance of daily and weekly tire pressure checks. In Part 2, we will dive into implementing safety lanes and the various benefits of properly inflated tires.
National Tire Safety Week is scheduled for June 26 – July 3. This annual campaign, organized by the U.S. Tire Manufacturers Association, serves as a crucial initiative to raise awareness about the significance of proper tire care and maintenance. As a responsible fleet operator, ensuring tire safety should be a top priority.

The "100 Deadliest Days'" of summer is the period between Memorial Day and Labor Day when fatal crashes increase dramatically and heavy-duty truck drivers face additional challenges on the road with the arrival of summer. Longer daylight hours, increased outdoor activities, and a surge in construction projects demand heightened awareness and focus. As the number of motorcyclists, bicyclists, pedestrians, and vacationers rises, it becomes vital for drivers to prioritize mental and visual acuity to ensure a safe journey.
International Roadcheck is May 16-18 with an Emphasis on ABS and Cargo Securement
The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) has announced the dates for this year's International Roadcheck, a 72-hour inspection and enforcement event aimed at promoting vehicle safety and compliance. With a focus on anti-lock braking systems (ABS) and cargo securement, commercial vehicle operators must be well-prepared.
This year's emphasis on ABS and cargo securement highlights their critical role in reducing accidents and protecting lives. By paying attention to ABS maintenance and conducting thorough cargo securement inspections, fleets can ensure they comply with regulations and contribute to safer roadways.
Air Quality Awareness Week is a national event that takes place every year during the first week of May. This weeklong event is dedicated to raising awareness about air quality and promoting ways to improve it.
History of Air Quality Awareness Week: Air Quality Awareness Week was first observed in 1999 by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and its partners. The goal was to encourage people to learn about the impact of air pollution on their health and the environment. Since then, the event has grown to include a wide range of activities and initiatives to improve air quality.
Earth Day (April 22) is an annual global event dedicated to promoting environmental protection and raising awareness about the importance of sustainability.
As the world is facing the looming threat of climate change, it is vital that individuals, communities, and industries come together to take action for a better future.
The transportation industry is paying attention and taking significant steps toward reducing its environmental impact, and corporate transportation fleets are prioritizing their ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) goals.
