    Covid-19 tests still voluntary for New Brunswick truckers

    Truck drivers returning to New Brunswick are being encouraged to take Covid-19 tests, but the province has reversed an earlier plan that would have actually mandated such tests as of March 1.

Tests can be arranged by visiting www.gnb.ca/gettestedcovid19. Drivers who can’t use the online form should call 8-1-1 in the province, or 1-877-795-3773 when outside the province.

    Seven C.A.T. natural gas trucks destroyed in fire

    A fire at C.A.T.’s Coteau du Lac yard Feb. 28 destroyed seven of its compressed natural gas (CNG) trucks, but the gas quickly dissipated avoiding further explosion and damage, the company reports. An investigation into the blaze is underway and the cause is unknown. An additional five trucks were damaged. C.A.T. says the natural properties of CNG cause it to quickly dissipate when it has escaped the tanks. (Photo: C.A.T.) There is no fuel leakage, which minimizes the risk of environmental damage. “These safety measures only reinforce why we believe CNG fuel technology is a safe, clean and efficient alternative to diesel,” the company said in a statement. “Drivers can…

    Trailer makers struggling to meet demand

    January trailer orders exceeded build rates by 66% in January, according to ACT Research, pushing the industry backlog higher over the past seven months. In its Trailer Components Report, ACT reports trailer manufacturers are struggling to maintain production volumes in the face of component shortages. “First of all, it is important to remember that trailer market strength is highly segmented,” said Frank Maly, director, commercial vehicle transportation analysis and research at ACT Research. “Dry vans and reefers have seen the majority of order volume in recent months, and those OEMs are struggling to increase production to meet surging fleet demand. Vocational trailer categories are not seeing the investment commitment occurring…
