Mexico or Bust

Well I have been reading up on the cross border mexican truck program and have to say that I do not see why this should be allowed. I know that on Friday The Federal Appeals Court denied cases by OOIDA and the Teamsters Union.
I for one do not believe that the requirements for CDL traning and the medical requirements are on an even scale with the United States. I do not believe that the mechanical requirements are the same for mexican trucks versus US trucks. I understand some of the reasons for the agreement; mainly the monetary part. Mexico will drop 2.4 billion in retaliatory tariffs on goods going into mexico. Is this not also costing us jobs and income for the US trucking industry. Your thoughts and clarifications would be helpful.

An inspiring and moatvtiing story for us all.I read in the newspaper yesterday, about the passing of Donald Schneider, the second generation owner of Schneider National. One of the largest trucking companies in the U.S., Schneider National had over 10,000 of their distinctive orange, tractor-trailers on the road. The company became known as Big Orange .Dons father founded the company in Green Bay, Wisc. in 1935 when he sold the family car to buy his first truck. Don started out as a mechanics assistant and began driving when he was 18.From there he got his degree in accounting and took over as chief executive in 1976. Schneider National went from $94 million in valuation when Don took over, to $2.6 billion when he stepped down as CEO in 2002.The company grew throughout the 60 s and 70 s through mergers an acquisitions and was always on the leading edge of technology, leading the way into logistics by arranging delivery of time-sensitive deliveries by truck and rail and later pioneering the use of standardized containers, known today as intermodal. So what do we take away from an amazing life and story?1. Even the biggest trucking companies start with one truck.2. Always be on the lookout for opportunities. Opportunities never stop coming. They are always out there for us all and we here at Pro Drivers USA want you to succeed and fulfill all your dreams.Best to you all,Mark OlsonFounder, Pro Drivers USA
