Troubled Transport: After a record profit year in 2018, many trucking companies experienced the exact opposite in 2019. For many trucking companies, 2018 was a record year in terms of profit. However, 2019 proved to be the exact opposite — the perfect storm of major issues affecting the transportation industry, including significant overcapacity, freight rates remaining severely depressed, a harder insurance market, nuclear verdicts, and serious legislative challenges.

Companies rely on comprehensive occupational health and safety training to keep their workers safe and to mitigate supply chain and regulatory risks associated with poor safety adherence among their contractor workforce.
