One thought on “Port truck drivers organize walkout as clean-air legislation looms

  1. Get up to pare like I & everyone else did..all it amounts to is rates are going up & you want a rat hole the money instead of replacing your already junk equipment…Worst trucks on the ROAD is port trucks pulling containers around…If D.O.T was to pull a inspection right now on port trucks…80% of them would not pass…That’s a fact…If they inspected trailers, the chassis alone, probably 90% would fail…Get your junk off the road & invest money in your equipment like everyone else..your reaping the money & putting EVERYONE who shares the road with you at risk…Your the only ones in trucking that is still running cheap BIOS TIRES..What’s that to tell ya..And as far as the DPF system..It’s got a Manuel regen..So that don’t fly..second of all QUIT idling your truck..Again get up to pare with the industry..A.P.U..Auxiliary power unit….Go on strike…Your only cutting your own throat..A big company will be more then glad to fill your void & put local guys on it…
