SUBTITLE: THE CURRENT MOTOR-CARRIER RATE STRUCTURE HAS CHANGED LITTLE FROM THE DAYS OF REGULATION. IT'S STILL CUMBERSOME, CONFUSING, AND COMPLEX. BUT THE NEW HOURS-OF-SERVICE RULES PROVIDE AN IDEAL OPPORTUNITY TO CHANGE ALL THAT. IN ADDITION TO REFORMING AN ARCHAIC TARIFF SYSTEM, THE HOS RULES COULD BE THE CATALYST THAT SPARKS A NEW ERA OF MUTUALLY BENEFICIAL SHIPPER-CARRIER COLLABORATION.
