XPO Logistics celebrated drivers with at least 1 million accident-free miles at a two-day celebration in Ann Arbor, Mich., in mid-June, including a question-and-answer session hosted by company CEO Brad Jacobs. In total, 890 XPO drivers have traveled more than 1 million miles without a crash, 19 of which went at least 3 million miles and received a special honor. When combined, the 890 amass more than 1 billion miles without a crash. The less-than-truckload division has 12,575 drivers.
The amount of time it took the average truck driver to do business at the two largest North America ports rose six minutes year-over-year in May due to backups at Total Terminals International, according to data from the Harbor Trucking Association. The total turn time was 84 minutes at the two Southern California ports. The Port of Los Angeles, No. 1 in North America based on annual container volumes, had an average of 82 minutes. The Port of Long Beach, No. 2, averaged 87 minutes.
The Los Angeles Board of Harbor Commissioners approved a $1.17 billion budget to cover infrastructure improvements and reduce the wait time truckers face when doing business at the largest port in North America. Port officials estimate that container traffic will grow 5.6% during the next fiscal year. On a calendar basis, Los Angeles handled 8.9 million industry-standard 20-foot-equivalent units, or TEUs, in 2016, a record for the Western Hemisphere.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
