    • Abstract:
      Efficient Commercial Vehicle Operations (CVO) is imperative as manufacturers and distributors move to new technologies, faster production methods and "Just in Time" delivery. CVO must offer more reliable travel times, as well as safety and flexibility. This is particularly true for the Northeast Corridor, which is home to a large motor coach industry, and approximately one-forth of the nation’s population economic activity and commercial vehicles. In fact, nearly two-thirds of all North American trucking passes through the l-95 Corridor every day. Commercial goods movement by trucks, semi-tractor trailers and vans has a direct impact on our region’s economy. It helps determine how much providers will need to charge for their products and, in turn, what the cost of living will be for area consumers. The shift to localized, more frequent and faster deliveries along the Corridor helps suppliers cut labor and inventory costs, stay competitive and speed up delivery of both perishable and durable goods. Yet it also places new demands on the Corridor’s commercial vehicle operators, and on state regulating agencies. All are attempting to adapt to new business practices, while assuring safety and improving cost efficiency, even as everything moves faster. Clearly, mare needs to be done to avoid deliveries being slowed because of things like traffic congestion, or time-consuming credentials enforcement, and new technologies are making that possible.
