The Trucking Alliance, a coalition of some of the largest carriers in the country, has added KLLM Transport Services (No. 33 in the CCJ Top 250) and Cargo Transporters (No. 209 in the CCJ Top 250) as new members, starting in 2017.
The Alliance, fully known as the Alliance for Driver Safety and Security, formed several years ago as an industry advocacy group and lobbyist for regulations it sees as vital to the industry, such as an electronic logging device mandate, speed limiter mandate, raising the minimum liability insurance required of carriers and more. The group also actively pursues changes to driver drug testing protocol and an enhanced driver hiring and training program.
Members include other Top 250 carriers Maverick USA (No. 76), Knight Transportation (No. 24), J.B. Hunt (No. 6) and Dupre Logistics (No. 128).
