I. Today’s news with Terry Scruton

Hurricane Laura poses a dangerous threat to the Gulf Coast; cross-border freight got a big bump in June; and my guess is he lost a bet – it’s today’s news in trucking.

II. Hurricane emergency declarations

The FMCSA has issued regional emergency declarations to deal with Hurricane Laura, extended the pandemic emergency declaration, considers a requested dashcam exemption and gets ready for a new administrator.

III. Hurricanes, freight and rates.

Hurricane Laura has pushed COVID-19 to the side – at least temporarily – in terms of freight and rates this week.
