Exemptions to Some Regs in Storm Aftermath

ALAN reports exemptions to federal regs in force regionally.

In its continuing effort to coordinate information and aid following Hurricane Sandy, ALAN, the American Logistics Aid Network notes that states of Emergency are in effect for Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, West Virginia.

As a result of these states of emergency, regional exemptions from Part 390 through 399 of 49 CFR (the Code of Federal Regulations) have been issued. This includes hours of service provisions, ALAN notes.

FMCSA has information on all active states of emergency and their impact on transportation: http://www.fmcsa.dot.gov/about/alerts/hurricane-sandy-2012.aspx#state

States of emergency often provide provisions to remove restrictions on weight/size/hours of service but will vary by state. To obtain oversize/overweight permits, it is necessary to contact the State(s) in which the vehicles will travel. For information for State permitting offices: http://ops.fhwa.dot.gov/freight/sw/permit_report/index.htm

ALAN will continue to monitor for additional access and credentialing information and share as available.

ALAN is an official partner of the National Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (National VOAD). National VOAD is a nonprofit, nonpartisan, membership based organization that serves as the forum where organizations share knowledge and resources throughout the disaster cycle – preparation, response and recovery – to help disaster survivors and their communities. ALAN supports state and National VOAD members by offering assistance identifying transportation services, staging areas, storage, expert advice and other vital resources.

Assurance of Supply: A Top Concern for Manufacturers

Every manufacturer has an assurance of supply problem to some extent due to the complexity of global sourcing. For years, manufacturers were blessed with high margins but margins have grown paper thin. You can’t fill up your distribution centers with excess inventory – not only is there a cost factor but the pace of business and consumer buying trends causes goods to quickly turn obsolete. Assurance of supply provides the speed and agility that is essential to being able to compete in today’s market.
