The federal CSA program continues to be enforced in all states at increasing levels. While we are proud as an organization of our standings in this program there are always opportunities to refine and improve in the interest of safety. We are seeing increasing enforcement of trucks in restricted lanes, seat belt usage and speed for the “Moving Violation” basic. We are also seeing increased activity with regard to the “Fatigue and Hours of Service” basic – the short description of this is: your logs. Federal law requires and FirstFleet policy supports that if you are driving a commercial vehic...

Driving a commercial vehicle is a physically and mentally challenging job. Long hours, customer demands, and other traffic are a lot to deal with. Driver fatigue is a constant companion to the truck driver. Mental stress; such as financial concerns, issues at home, or medical problems, can all weigh heavily on an already tired person. Please stay aware of your alert status. Drowsiness is an advanced stage of fatigue. When you are tired – STOP – REFRESH! Sleep is involuntary; you can doze of at a moments notice.

It was recently brought to my attention that in some instances drivers reported that when clicking on the "View Trip Detail" they were taken to a blank white page. Today I was contacted by a twelve year employee "Joe" from Phoenix, AZ with some specifics that allowed us to track this issue down and resolve it. Thank you to Joe and others for reaching out to us and giving us a chance to resolve the issue for you. If there are additional questions or concerns about t...

Due to the responses to the auto-enrollment notice that we discussed a few months ago, we have decided to not introduce that option at this time for the 401k Plan for our company.  We did have a number of associates newly enroll in the plan as an active participant as part of this effort, and we will be honoring those enrollments starting in January 2011.  If you did have an interest in participating in the 401k plan as an auto-enrollee at 4%, you still have time to enroll online at www.principal.com by using the Plan contract # 7-05090.   Please remember that you also have t...
