  • Abstract:
    The purpose of this project was to better understand the nature of detention times in the commercial motor vehicle (CMV) industry. Detention time refers to the time that CMV operators may experience at shipping and receiving facilities associated with loading and unloading cargo. Detention times can have safety and operational impacts, including hours-of-service (HOS) violations. The industry commonly defines detention time as any time drivers have to wait beyond 2 hours, which is the average time it takes to load or unload cargo. Two third-party vendors provided data collected on approximately 31 carriers with over 1.3 million stops.
