With terminals Alexandria and north experiencing supply
issues due to the high rivers, drivers are experiencing longer hauls and
extended rack delays. As we have started to feel pressure due to the longer
hauls we’re also bumping close to driver maximum hours. As a result, LOMCSA has
reached out to the LA Governor’s Office, LA DOTD, PMAA and Federal Motor
Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA).
As a result, the FMCSA granted PMAA and LOMCSA use of the
regional HOS waiver to cover Louisiana fuel supply issues. In other
words, we can use the regional HOS waiver for our (Louisiana drivers) longer
hauls and longer hours and supply issues. The waiver expires on April 18, 2019.
Affected States included in this Emergency Declaration are:
Arkansas, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Minnesota, Mississippi,
Missouri, Nebraska, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, West Virginia and
FMCSA also announced it will not enforce the Temporary
Operating Authority Registration fee for carriers requesting temporary
authority to provide direct assistance to the affected areas.
