Summary

FMCSA announces that La Rosa Del Monte Express, Inc. (LRDM) has requested an exemption for its specialized “Small Residential Shipments” (SRS) from the consumer protection regulations for the transportation of household goods (HHG) in interstate commerce. LRDM requested that its SRS consisting of fewer than 10 items weighing less than 1,000 pounds total be exempted from the HHG regulations. LRDM claims that the need for the exemption is made clear by the statutory Limited Service Exclusion (LSE) for household goods motor carriers. LRDM believes that an SRS exemption is consistent with the purpose of the LSE.

Avoid legal pitfalls

Rules of the Road offers practical help on avoiding legal pitfalls in working with customers, independent contractors, insurers, factoring companies, etc.

Many serious legal risks will go unnoticed unless you are watching for them. Don't take chances.

 Although successful food haulers already employ the common sense steps required in FDA's new transportation rule, declaring your compliance can help you stay competitive for spot-market freight.
