The Problem of Urban Trucking Congestion

trucking congestionNo one is happy about being stuck behind a large truck in busy city traffic while the truck picks up or delivers cargo. Most motorists have a time-sensitive agenda; delays in traffic are exasperating!  But motorists are not the only frustrated parties in this scenario. Truckers are also on a schedule, and these delays cost the driver, their employer , and their customers money.

Trucking companies in Toronto Ontario are all too familiar with these difficulties. Truckers and motorists alike have responsibilities that can alleviate the problem somewhat.

Motorists’ Responsibilities:

  1. Don’t park in loading zones or driveways designated for pick-up or delivery of cargo. It is tempting to use such a spot when no other parking seems available, but this only necessitates trucks parking in mid-traffic.
  2. Realize that the problem did not originate with the trucker. He is simply doing his job.
  3. Allow extra travel time if your route takes you through congested areas.
  4. That trucker carries the goods that you buy! You need him! Be patient.
  5. A smile goes a long way to alleviate stress!  🙂

Truckers’ Responsibilities:

  1. Make sure that you use the designated loading zones and not other parking spaces.
  2. Park as closely to the curb as possible without hindering your loading process.
  3. Whenever possible, deliver goods in times of lowest traffic.
  4. Load or unload as quickly as is safely possible.
  5. A smile goes a long way to alleviate stress!  🙂
