According to Insurance Truck.com representatives, 2017 has brought a slew of trends that have contributed to shaping the future of the trucking industry; indeed, with nearly 3.5 million truck drivers collectively moving nearly 70-percent of all freight tonnage in the U.S., change was inevitable. These trends included efficient tech, such as GPS technologies and ELD requirements; government regulations, such as a national driver drug-testing information clearing house and hair follicle-based drug tests; self-driving trucks, such as the Uber-backed Otto as well as vehicles from Budweiser; a new age workforce, with a driver shortage continuing to be a major concern for fleets; driver pay increases; rising transportation costs and President Trump’s trucking impact, with potential ending of certain trade agreements such as the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) and the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).

Aug 25, 2019

BEKASI, Indonesia — An Indonesian man is walking more than 700 kilometers (430 miles) backward from his village in eastern Java to the country's capital to raise awareness about deforestation.

The 43-year-old is expected to arrive in the capital, Jakarta, on Friday. He hopes to meet President Joko Widodo, and ask him to re-plant trees on Mount Wilis and elsewhere.

China threatens retaliation if US tariff hikes go ahead

Aug 25, 2019

BEIJING — China on Thursday threatened retaliation if Washington steps up their war over trade and technology by going ahead with planned Sept. 1 tariff hikes on additional Chinese imports. Beijing will take unspecified "necessary countermeasures," the Cabinet said in a one-sentence statement. It gave no details or any indication plans for trade talks in Washington in September might be affected. The mounting tension has unnerved financial markets that worry the global economy will tip into recession. President Donald Trump says he plans to impose 10% duties on an additional $300 billion of Chinese imports, extending penalties to almost everything...

China's Xi gets tougher on Trump after new tariff threat

Aug 25, 2019

BEIJING — Facing another U.S. tariff hike, Chinese President Xi Jinping is getting tougher with Washington instead of backing down. Beijing fired what economists called a "warning shot" at Washington by letting its yuan currency weaken in response to President Donald Trump's latest threat of more punitive import duties on Sept. 1. Chinese buyers canceled multibillion-dollar purchases of U.S. soybeans. Regulators are threatening to place American companies on an "unreliable entities" list that might face curbs on their operations. Both sides have incentives to settle a trade war that is battering exporters on either side of the Pacific and threatening...

Fukushima nuclear plant out of space for radioactive water

Aug 25, 2019

TOKYO — The utility company operating Fukushima's tsunami-devastated nuclear power plant said Friday it will run out of space to store massive amounts of contaminated water in three years, adding pressure on the government and the public to reach a consensus on what to do with it. Three reactors at the Fukushima Dai-ichi plant suffered meltdowns in a massive 2011 earthquake and tsunami that devastated northeastern Japan. Radioactive water has leaked from the damaged reactors and mixed with groundwater and rainwater at the plant. The water is treated but remains slightly radioactive and is stored in large tanks. The plant...

Japan OKs removing South Korea from preferred trade status

Aug 25, 2019

TOKYO — Japan has approved the removal of South Korea from a "whitelist" of countries with preferential trade status, escalating tensions between the neighbors. Friday's Cabinet decision expanding controls over exports of sensitive materials takes effect on Aug. 28. It follows an earlier requirement that Japanese companies' exports to South Korea be approved on a case-by-case basis for three materials used in semiconductors, smartphones and other high-tech devices. The decision will fuel antagonism between the two neighbors already at a boiling point over the export controls and the issue of compensation for wartime Korean laborers. It will ripple across the...
