Trucking industry expert witnesses may write reports and testify on on issues including federal motor carrier safety regulations, crashworthiness, truck maintenance, hours of service, and more.

“If you’re looking for a buzzword in the logistics industry of late, it doesn’t get much buzzier than “sustainability,” noted American Shipper magazine in an April article.
In a survey, the magazine found that some shippers are factoring how “green” a carrier or logistics company is when deciding whether to use them to transport goods.
The survey found that more than a third of buyers use vendors’ sustainability plans as a tiebreaker or deciding factor in buying decisions. And nearly 70% of carriers with a “proven plan” earned higher rates because of it.
