A Letter from Jordan Strawn

Mar 26, 2024 | Carriers

Valued carriers,

Embracing both opportunities and challenges as we make our way through 2024, we extend our heartfelt appreciation for your dedication to Werner Logistics. We deeply value your continued partnership and strive to exceed your expectations in everything we do. As always, these newsletters are meant to keep you informed with the latest news and highlights impacting you. Check out more relevant information below.

CARB Compliance

As a carrier ourselves, we understand the unique challenges you face and want to be a resource for your business. Many of you are familiar with the California Air Resources Board (CARB) and have had to previously navigate through its regulations and requirements. Compliance with CARB is crucial for carriers to avoid penalties and maintain operational efficiency.

Effective October 1, 2023, all carriers are mandated to adhere to the Clean Truck Check (CTC), formerly known as the Heavy-Duty Inspection and Maintenance Regulation. This program requires carriers to register in the CTC-VIS system, which is different from any other systems used prior to the aforementioned date. Please note that there is a $30 registration fee per vehicle. The program continues through January 1, 2025, with specific testing requirements to obtain a CTC Certificate.

Brokers can only arrange transportation within California through motor carriers with compliant vehicles or fleets and who comply with the record-keeping requirements. Brokers must verify a copy of the vehicle’s CTC Compliance Certificate or an affirmation of fleet wide compliance obtained within 12 months of dispatch.

This information is not publicly available. Therefore, we are asking our carriers for the information above so we can keep it on file to ensure compliance with CTC requirements. Once obtained, please forward it to [email protected] for processing.

Werner Bridge

At Werner Logistics, we strive to bridge people, technology and your network. With our digital platform, Werner Bridge, you can find freight, manage your fleet, create your preferred lanes and more.

We want you to move your freight confidently with a company you trust. With you in mind, we’ve recently added exciting new features to the Werner Bridge:

  • As a carrier, you can move freight on the go with our new app. The Werner Bridge app is available on Android and IOS.
  • You now have the ability to smart match freight directly to your network.
  • With our new chat feature, you can connect with a digital representative 24/7 for tech support.
  • Werner Bridge now has real-time rate negotiations in addition to ‘Book it Now’.

In the future, we will add enhancements to reduce manual touchpoints so you can update your load status through the app, enhance document management and more.

Thank you for your continued partnership and for being an integral part of the Werner Logistics family. Together, we are driving toward a future of success and innovation in the transportation industry.
