Intermodal Cartage Truck Drivers Receive 30% Pay Raise

Memphis-based Intermodal Cartage Company has announced a 30% pay raise for its drivers to proactively reach out to more prospective employees at the drayage carrier.

IMC is the latest carrier to offer a substantial pay raise in the past few months in an effort to attract new drivers and retain experienced drivers. With high demand to move freight and an ongoing driver shortage, trucking companies are actively making moves to be more competitive employers.

Current driver shortage estimates find that as many as 90,000 drivers are needed nationwide, and hundreds of thousands will be needed in the coming decades in order to meet rising demand.

So far, Yu Darvish meltdowns aren't a bug -- they're a feature

DENVER -- First it was late March, Miami humidity. Two starts later, it was a balk. Then came Saturday, at Coors Field, when Chicago Cubs hurler Yu Darvish walked the opposing pitcher in the bottom of the fifth inning.

Like those previous outings, Darvish fell apart the moment adversity hit. A 2-0 Cubs lead turned into a 5-2 deficit -- and the final score of the game.

Revved-Up Trucking Regulations Could Be Costly for Farmers

We focus a lot here at Florida Grower magazine on sharing information to help you grow a good, quality crop. But it’s good to also take a step back and look at all of the many variables that can impact the profitability of your farming operation.

I was reminded of that recently while riding with a grower who lamented the rising costs of transportation to get his produce distributed to the retailers he serves and how pending regulations would make those costs go higher. That U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) regulation — the electronic logging device (ELD) mandate — is looming, and it has the specialty crop industry particularly concerned about its implications and financial impacts.

Mike Thayer 2016 (2)By Mike Thayer

20180421_220536Surprisingly Delightful: Looking for something a bit different to do with a batch of popcorn, I melted a couple tabs of butter with some Arby's Bronco Berry Sauce...... Tasty!

I really didn't expect it to be this good, tossing the butter/Bronco Berry sauce mixture with the freshly popped corn... and you get a sweet element with just a hint of kick, it's a repeat thing to do it's that good!

The sad thing is, I don't have anymore Bronco Berry Sauce on hand....  Go to Arby's I must.....  Although here's a cheat:
