SMARTWAYTM TRANSPORT PARTNERSHIP
JEB has partnered with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) on their SmartWayTM Transport Partnership program to provide eco-friendly shipping and lessen our environmental footprint on the planet.
The SmartWayTM initiative was created in 2004 as a collaborative voluntary program between the EPA and the freight industry to address greenhouse gas emissions, fuel consumption, criteria pollutants (NOx and PM) and operating costs associated with ground freight transportations.
JEB is committed to improving the environmental performance of our transportation operations and in turn reduce negative emissions given off by our fleet.

HOS REGULATIONS FOR DRIVERS
Many things have changed in the motor carrier industry since 1939 when the original hours-of-service (HOS) regulations were prescribed for truck drivers. Our roads are better designed, constructed and maintained in a nationwide network to provide greater mobility, accessibility and safety for all highway users. These factors, combined with years of driver fatigue and sleep disorder research, have led to a revision of the HOS regulations for drivers, the most important component of trucks operating on the highway. In April 2003, FMCSA issued the first significant revision to the HOS regulations in over 60 years. The new regulations provide an increased opportunity for drivers to obtain necessary rest and restorative sleep, and, at the same time, reflect operational realities of motor carrier transportation. In the months preceding the compliance date of January 4, 2004, the FMCSA is working with its partners and stakeholders to assure a smooth transition to the new regulations. The following information and education and training material will help us implement these new regulations for the continuing improvement of motor carrier safety.
Former Hours-of-Service Rules All CMV drivers may not drive:
- More than 10 hours, following 8 hours off-duty.
- After 15 hours on-duty, following 8 hours off-duty.
- After 60/70 hours on-duty in 7/8 consecutive days.
Property-Carrying CMV drivers may not drive:
- More than 11 hours, following 10 hours off-duty.
- Beyond the 14th hour after coming on-duty, following 10 hours off-duty.
- After 60/70 hours on-duty in 7/8 consecutive days. A driver may restart a 7/8 consecutive day period after taking 34 or more consecutive hours off-duty.
- Drivers may drive up to 11 hours instead of 10 hours but are limited to 14 hours in a duty period.
- The 14-hour duty period may not be extended with off-duty time for meal and fuel stops, etc. Only the use of a sleeper berth can extend the 14-hour on-duty period.
- Each duty period must begin with at least ten hours off-duty, rather than eight.
- The 60 hours on-duty in 7 consecutive days, or 70 hours on-duty in 8 consecutive days, remains the same, but drivers can “restart” the 7/8-day period by taking at least 34 consecutive hours off-duty.
