PowerPoint Presentation: TRUCK Transportation PowerPoint Presentation: 1. List the major truck lines serving your town. PowerPoint Presentation: Yellow Champion Roadway UPS JB Hunt Schneider PowerPoint Presentation: 2. Do the following: a. Describe the role of truck transportation within commerce (the movement of goods, funds, and information). b. Describe how trucks fit into a company's supply chain. This could be a manufacturer, importer, wholesaler, or retailer. c. On paper, map out how goods that are manufactured overseas are transported to a retailer in this country. PowerPoint Presentation: a. Describe the role of truck transportation within commerce (the movement of goods, funds, and information). United States distribution and supply chain network depends on the trucking industry to move 70 percent of the nation’s freight Transportation plays an important role in determining the profitability of operating both farm and nonfarm businesses in rural areas. Farms, businesses, and industries in rural areas rely on transportation services to achieve necessary production outputs and to deliver commodities and products to market. At this very moment, and around the clock, coast-to-coast, trucks are on the road hauling the essentials - everything the Nation needs such as food, books, clothing, electronics, automobiles and medical supplies. In 2006, the U.S. trucking industry hauled 70 percent of the total volume of freight transported in the United States. More than 26 million trucks of all classes, including 2.9 million typical Class 8 trucks operated by more than 580,000 interstate motor carriers, kept America moving. Trucking also plays an important role in trade exchanged between the United States and two of our largest trading partners, Canada and Mexico. Trucks transported 80.7 percent of the value of trade between the United States and Mexico in 2006 and 64.4 percent of the value of trade between the United States and Canada. PowerPoint Presentation: b. Describe how trucks fit into a company's supply chain. This could be a manufacturer, importer, wholesaler, or retailer. One major retailer has structured a supply chain with a 48-hour response time on fashion products sourced in the Far East. If you buy a fashion garment from one of its stores in your local mall, the data is transmitted to a factory in the Far East. The factory keeps semi-finished "greige goods" products in stock, and that day it cuts and tailors a replacement for the one you bought. The garment is flown to the United States on an air freighter, cleared through dedicated customs, and driven through the night to the store in your local mall to replace the one you bought. “If you think of a retailer, there is the trucker who picks the items up at the factory in China and then delivers them to the port where another person consolidates the shipment for air or sea transport,” he says. “Then there is a person to make sure the items clear customs and de-consolidate the shipment. Then there is warehousing and shipping to stores It is this complexity that allows guys like us to add value. There are time zones, currencies, financial interfaces, different transport vehicles, resulting in a horizontal list of skills and processes that cut across all of the logistics providers for any executive seeking to coordinate this aspect of his business.” PowerPoint Presentation: c. On paper, map out how goods that are manufactured overseas are transported to a retailer in this country. PowerPoint Presentation: 3. Describe the difference between the gasoline engine and the diesel engine that power trucks. List the advantages of each. PowerPoint Presentation: Gas Diesel Horsepower Torque 1 gallon / 125,000 BTUs energy 1 gallon / 147,000 BTUs energy GM 8.1L $850.00 GM 6.6L $4,810 Spark Plugs – easy cold start 110 volt heating element PowerPoint Presentation: A gasoline engine runs on the Otto cycle, in which a vaporized mixture of gasoline and air is delivered to the combustion chamber, where it’s then compressed and ignited by a spark plug. In the Diesel cycle, air is compressed during the compression stroke and fuel is injected into hot, compressed air in the cylinder, spontaneously igniting the fuel. Because of this, the diesel is sometimes referred to as a compression ignition engine in contrast to a spark ignition engine. Diesel engines are also more efficient than their gasoline counterparts because more power is produced as a result of the higher compression of the air/fuel mixture. Today’s gasoline engines have compression ratios of about 10:1 to 11:1, while the compression ratios in diesels can be as high as 25:1. The higher the compression ratio, the more power generated. The much higher compression ratio means diesel engines have to be heavier and more robust. This means they are more expensive to build, but the higher cost is offset by much longer lifetimes. For instance, we’ve seen Mercedes-Benz diesels with 350,000 or more miles on the odometer running great on the original engine. Because of higher component weight and high compression ratios, diesels operate at lower rpms, producing lots of low end torque but less horsepower. PowerPoint Presentation: 4.

Find out what kind of maintenance program the company follows to help keep its fleet, drivers, and the roadway safe. PowerPoint Presentation: Qualcomm b. Find out how dispatchers maintain communication with drivers on the road. PowerPoint Presentation: c. Talk with a professional truck driver about safety. Learn about the truck driver's rules of the road for safe driving. List five safe-driving rules every professional truck driver must follow. The hours of service ( HOS ) are regulations issued by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) governing the working hours of anyone operating a commercial motor vehicle (CMV) in the United States for the purpose of "interstate commerce"— moving commercial goods from one U.S. state to another. This includes truck drivers and bus drivers who operate CMVs for motor carriers (their employers). These rules limit the number of daily and weekly hours spent driving and working, and regulate the minimum amount of time drivers must spend resting between driving shifts. For intrastate commerce, the respective state's regulations apply. Stay Alert Operating a vehicle safely demands that the driver concentrate on driving. The person should be rested, calm and not under the influence of alcohol or other drugs. One of the greatest hazards of roadway driving is drowsiness or “highway hypnosis.” Drive Defensively Plan ahead for the unexpected. Always be prepared to react to the other driver. Do not expect the other driver to do what you think he/she should do. PowerPoint Presentation: c. Talk with a professional truck driver about safety. Learn about the truck driver's rules of the road for safe driving. List five safe-driving rules every professional truck driver must follow. Following Distances Following a vehicle too closely is called “tailgating.” Use the eight-second rule to determine a safe following distance. Select a fixed object on the road ahead such as a sign, tree or overpass. When the vehicle ahead of you passes the object, count “onethousand-one, one-thousand-two, etc.” EQUIPMENT, INSPECTION , AND USE Before operating a vehicle, drivers are responsible for ensuring that all brakes, the steering mechanism, the lights and reflectors, tires, horn, windshield wipers, mirrors, coupling devices, and all emergency equipment are in good working order. SAFE LOADING At the beginning of a trip, after the initial 25 miles traveled, and, depending on which comes first, every 3 hours or 150 miles of each change of duty status cargo must be inspected to make sure it is properly distributed and secured. PowerPoint Presentation: d. Review the driver's log and find out what kind of information the log contains. Start driving - G.P. Tx Stop driving Murray, Ok Start driving Murray, Ok Stop driving – KansasCity, KS unload freight Stop work for the day PowerPoint Presentation: e. Learn about important federal regulations that help ensure public safety. Department of Transportation's drug and alcohol testing rules include requirements for employers to submit drug and alcohol testing The FMCSA amends the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSRs) prohibiting States from issuing, renewing, transferring or upgrading a commercial driver's license (CDL) with a hazardous materials (hazmat) endorsement unless the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has first conducted a background records check of the applicant and determined the applicant does not pose a security risk warranting denial of the hazardous materials endorsement. Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations require truck drivers to be at least 21 years old, have at least 20/40 vision and good hearing, and be able to read and speak English. They also must have good driving records and a commercial driver’s license, which they obtain by passing a written examination and a skills test in which they operate the type of vehicle they will be driving. PowerPoint Presentation: 5. Do the following: a. Outline the general organization of a trucking company. Describe what each department does. b. List five positions with trucking companies and describe each one. PowerPoint Presentation: a. Outline the general organization of a trucking company. Describe what each department does. Experienced and reliable truck drivers Laborers, and hand freight, stock, and material movers help load and unload freight and move it around warehouses and terminals. Dispatchers coordinate the movement of freight and trucks, and provide the main communication link that informs the truck drivers of their assignments, schedules, and routes.

Learn about opportunities in the field of truck transportation. Choose one career in which you are interested and discuss with your counselor the major responsibilities of that position and the qualifications, education, and training such a position requires. PowerPoint Presentation: For managerial jobs in the truck transportation and warehousing industry, employers prefer persons with bachelor’s degrees in business, marketing, accounting, industrial relations, or economics. Good communication, problem-solving, and analytical skills are valuable in entry-level jobs. Unskilled employees may work as helpers, laborers, and material movers in their first jobs. They must be in good physical condition because the work often involves a great deal of physical labor and heavy lifting. They acquire skills on the job and can advance to more skilled jobs, such as industrial truck operator, truck driver, shipping and receiving clerk, or supervisor. Office and administrative support jobs in the truck transportation and warehousing industry require familiarity with computers. Shipping and receiving clerks watch and learn the skills of the trade from more experienced workers while on the job. Stock clerks may advance to dispatcher positions after becoming familiar with company operations and procedures. PowerPoint Presentation: Mt. Lake District [email protected]
