Although many parts of the Federal government are shut down since October 1, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration will stay up and running. The FMCSA and FHWA have enough liquidating cash to operate for a period of time and none of their over 4,000 employees will be furloughed.
This is good news for truckers and for the transportation of goods throughout the country. Shipments should continue as usual and scales are open. For more information, read more here.
