THEY SAID IT

Notable Quotes From Around The Industry

"The legislation is needed to end abusive practices imposed on American trucking companies at U.S. maritime ports by ocean carriers, most of which are foreign-owned. Specifically, the trucking industry seeks relief from excessive detention and demurrage charges - unfair fees levied on motor carriers by ocean carriers and marine terminal operators when shipping containers are not moved on schedule, even though delays are typically due to factors entirely outside truckers' control and often the result of inefficiencies caused by the ocean carriers themselves."
