What’s Coming in Transportation and Its Regulations?

by Michael Kotendzhi | Trucking

The transportation industry has always focused on the development of transportation regulations as the bylaws are constantly changing. Every change affects every aspect of logistics and transportation operations, especially the traffic is getting busier here in Vancouver, British Columbia, with expanding consumer markets and industries.

For example, the upcoming road tolls in Downtown Vancouver, the auto-charge system has been proposed by City of Vancouver about 2 months ago. The plan’s purposes are to reduce the traffic inbound to the Core of Metro Vancouver. Concurrently, a newly established mobility pricing is in place including a user-pay system, which is used by lots of other countries in the past decade. The system is expected to roll out in 2025 if the plan is approved.

This project is to rule out the disproportional repercussion currently in place and design a better advantage on its geographical term. Within such an early stage, the proposal is still controversial whether the project has a positive and sustainable impact on the logistics services or not.

However, big projects will always come with big bangs. A spike in transportation and trucking cost is unavoidable and anticipated. Synchronously, there will be an innumerable amount of transportation regulations coming effect along with the projects that all trucking businesses should be notable.
