ABSTRACT
This article presents the opinion of Bridge Terminal Transport Inc. President Philip Connors on the challenges facing the trucking industry in the U.S. He says that 2007 was not an impressive year for the industry. He believes that 2008 will not be better for the industry either. He expects that the implementation of the Transportation Worker Identification Credential (TWIC) and the changing regulatory environment will continue to create uncertainty in terms of available capacity for the industry.
