The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration announced its decision to grant RockTenn an exemption from the driver hours-of-service provisions of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations. This limited exemption is for RockTenn’s shipping department employees and occasional substitute commercial driver’s license holders who transport paper mill products short distances between its shipping and receiving locations on a public road.

The exemption is restricted to a specific route and will allow the designated individuals to occasionally work up to 16 consecutive hours and be allowed to return to work with less than the mandatory 10 consecutive hours off duty.
