Trucking has become a huge part of transportation, supplanting much of what the railroads and shipping used to do. The inter-state system and trucking go hand in hand, along with specialized trailers and modernized road restrictions, have advanced the transportation industry. Outsourcing and just-on-time inventorying are part of the whole picture.
The labor regulations for trucking come under the Department of Transportation, and sometimes must be interpreted so as to have continuity with the OSHA regulations. One example is the division of responsibility between a warehouse forklift operator loading a van (OSHA regs), vs. the truck driver who must secure the load for the road (DOT regs).
