Trucker protest spreads to California depots, interstates and ports
by Dick Larsen, senior editor
The official publication of the owner-operator Independent Drivers Association)
California's soaring diesel prices spurred a flurry of protests at rail depots earlier this week and along portions of I-5 - by week's end, protesting truckers had abandoned rigs on the northbound lanes east of downtown Los Angeles.
(Leasing News has heard from readers who state trucks have been "abandoned” at
intersections, such as on Sepulveda Boulevard in Sherman Oaks, protesting the
cost of diesel fuel. Local television stations interview the drivers who say more
than half, and some 2/3rds, of the income is going toward fuel. Leasing Companies
are reporting more slowness with California owner-operator. Kit Menkin. Leasing
CHP Officer Spencer Amons told Land Line I-5 is now open to all traffic - about six trucks were cleared and fewer than 10 truckers were arrested.
Amons also reported a slowdown of traffic on southbound Interstate 110, "but when we arrived, things got back to normal."
He said a group of truckers is heading toward a rally at a park in Wilmington, CA near the Pacific Coast Highway, which is close to Long Beach.
Meanwhile, officials within the shipping industry said the truckers are preparing for some kind of action April 30 at the ports of Oakland, Los Angeles and Long Beach, according to news accounts.
While it remains unclear how many truckers would participate or what they would do during a protest, fliers are being circulated around the docks urging truckers not to work.
The protest began in Central California April 27 as hundreds of drivers refused to take containers from a railroad depot in Lathrop. The truckers also protested at freight terminals operated by the Union Pacific and Burlington Northern Sante Fe railroads in and near Stockton, CA, The Sacramento Bee said.
The truckers don't blame ports or railroad companies.
They are, however, upset at shipping and trucking companies that rely on the railroads and ports to make a profit. Truckers say the profits they make hauling containers have been reduced because of the higher fuel prices. Truckers are usually paid for every container they haul, but that price has not risen to match the increased fuel costs.
Among the stated demands are a 30 percent increase in the fees paid per container a trucker hauls and a sliding fuel surcharge rate based upon the price of fuel.
Effect on shipping
While the initial protest largely focused on railroad distribution centers in the Central Valley, its ripple effect has caused pinched operations for shippers in other regions and for companies relying on deliveries.
"Basically, all our products come out of Georgia, and they are now stuck in Lathrop," said Dorothy Stein, an assistant at John Towns and Associates, who spoke to the Alameda Times-Star. The company ships erosion control blankets and other soil stabilization and paving products. "People expected deliveries and never received them. It has just been that sort of day."
Jeff Bromley, a Union Pacific Railroad spokesman who also spoke to the newspaper, said the company has seen a 95 percent decline in cargo movement since the protest began at its Lathrop Distribution Center.
The center usually moves about 1,000 containers to and from its center, but on April 27-28, it moved about 250 per day, he said.
The crux of the protest
The truckers have focused on the fuel surcharge, saying carriers are keeping 70 percent of it. The surcharge drivers do receive is based on the national average, not the California price, which is typically the highest in the nation each week.
But truckers also noted their tight financial situation - including low freight rates, and the lack of health and other insurance benefits.
Meanwhile, the truckers taking part in the protest are not alone. OOIDA and Land Line have heard from several other truckers who have parked their rigs due to high fuel prices.
"Virtually every trucker is significantly impacted by the run up in fuel costs and the possibility that costs may keep climbing," Todd Spencer, executive vice president of OOIDA, said. "As of April 30, the national average price of diesel fuel was $1.74 and in California, the average price was $2.26."

New Web Site, www.ChooseLeasing.org, Answers Questions About Equipment Leasing Conservation of Capital as Main Reason Small Businesses Lease, According to Survey
Arlington, VA——The Equipment Leasing Association (ELA) today announces the launch of a new educational Web site for businesses seeking information on equipment leasing. Located at www.ChooseLeasing.org, the site was developed in response to recent market research that shows businesses are using leasing more as a strategic financing option and not just as a hedge against obsolescence. The Choose Leasing Web site, in response to these shifts, includes more analysis of leasing versus purchasing equipment and includes more in-depth information on how leasing’s benefits apply to a business scenario.
"Business leaders have always known that choosing a mix of financing options for acquiring equipment is important,” said ELA President Michael Fleming. "We now find the reasons for choosing leasing, however, have evolved. Historically, avoiding obsolescence was a main reason to lease. While the high tech markets continue to report that avoiding obsolescence is a major factor, now we are seeing more businesses also taking advantage of leasing’s flexibility and contribution to cash flow management.”
Several ELA-sponsored research projects underscore this premise, including a recent Entrepreneur magazine—ELA joint survey of small businesses. In that survey, almost 36 percent said the conservation of capital was the main reason to lease and just over 26 percent of the 285 respondents cited the flexibility of lease financing. Just under 18 percent cited avoiding obsolescence as the main factor for leasing.
Results of the survey also show that just under 73 percent of small businesses report they will increase equipment spending this year. Nearly one third of survey respondents said they use leasing as a financing option now and one third expect to use leasing in the near future.
"Regardless of their reasons, equipment leasing continues to be a mainstay of equipment acquisition, particularly for smaller businesses,” said Fleming. "The economic upturn is creating the need for new equipment. Businesses can use the information on the Choose Leasing site to help make their financing decisions.”
The Choose Leasing site also contains a directory of equipment leasing companies, a list of kinds of equipment that can be leased, case studies, the 10 questions to ask before signing a lease, and a glossary of terms.
More than 80 percent of U.S. businesses lease some or all of their equipment. Leasing is particularly well suited to the needs of small businesses and start-ups for a number of reasons, among them that set lease payments provide them with financial certainty in the face of changes in interest rates, inflation and business volume. Virtually every U.S. industry leases and finances a broad range of equipment, ranging from computer laptops to jumbo jets.

The combined CMI picked up 210 basis points, whereas the manufacturing and service sectors rose 160 and 250 points, respectively. These are all record highs for these indices since the inception of the CMI in February 2002.
The CMI survey asks credit managers to rate favorable and unfavorable factors in their monthly business cycle. Favorable factors include sales, new credit applications, dollar collections and amount of credit extended. Unfavorable factors include rejections of credit applications, accounts placed for collections, dollar amounts of receivables beyond terms and filings for bankruptcies.

This Day in American History
1494- Christopher Columbus discovered Jamaica. The Arawak Indians were its first inhabitants. This was his second journey. His first he basically discovered Cuba, and on his third Trinidad, and on his fifth trip, 1502-1504, Martinique, exploring the coasts of Nicaragua, Costa Rica, and Panama. He brought a lot of slaves back to Spain, his main
find in the islands.
1626-Dutch colonist Peter Minuit arrived on the wooded island of Manhattan in present-day New York. He bought Manhattan for $24, but from a tribe in Brooklyn, almost like buying the Brooklyn Bridge. The story has been repeated so many times school children believe the borough was bought for beads. Ironically, he Dutch had already established the town of New Amsterdam at the southern end of the island. The American Indians had no comprehension of land ownership. Shortly most of them were wiped out by small pox, influenza, and a host of diseases brought from Europe in which
they had no immunity.

1746- The Moravians in Pennsylvania established the Moravian Women's Seminary at Bethlehem. It was the first educational institution of its kind established by the "Unitas Fratrum" in (colonial) America.

crosses Rapidan and
begins his duel with Robert E Lee
1864- Over the objections of President Lincoln, the House of Representatives on this date passed the Wade-Davis Reconstruction bill, containing stiff punitive measures against the South that if put into aw would have destroyed Lincoln’s more moderate reconstruction aims. The bill was also adamantly opposed by Radical Republicans, led by Thaddeus Stevens for whom it was insufficiently severe in its treatment of the Southern rebels. Lincoln eventually killed the bill by using the pocket veto. When Andrew Johnson became president, following Lincoln’s assassination, he basically abandoned all Lincoln’s reconstruction plans and set up to punish the South.
1886 - Chichester Bell and Charles Tainter received a US patent for the graphophone. This invention replaced Thomas Edison's phonograph, and featured wax-coated cylinders. These were considered an improvement over the phonograph's tinfoil cylinders, which had been delicate and difficult to remove.
1891-The first hospital open to all races as a matter of policy was the Provident Hospital, Chicago, Ill. Although primarily for African-Americans, there was no racial barrier to the admission of patients or staff appointments of physicians. Dr. Frank Billings was chief consulting physician. Dr. Christian Fenger, chief consulting surgeon; and Drs. Ralph N. Isham and Daniel Hall Williams, attending surgeons. A nursing school, the Provident Hospital Training School Association, was connected with the hospital.
1894—Bird Day began.
1896- Labor union unrest at Chicago led to violence when a crowd of unemployed men tried to enter the McCormick Reaper Works, where a strike was underway. Although no one was killed, anarchist groups called a mass meeting in Haymarket Square to avenge the "massacre. When the police advanced on the demonstrators, a bomb was thrown and several policemen were killed. Four leaders of the demonstration were hanged and another committed suicide in jail. Three others were given jail terms. The case aroused considerable controversy around the world.

Ferguson's recording of "Gonna Fly Now," the theme from "Rocky," was a major hit single in 1977.

Audrey Hepburn died Jan 20, 1993, at Tolochenaz, Switzerland. Even when dying of cancer, she traded ceaselessly in Third World countries, always for the children, never stinting, giving everything she had.
Answering a reporter's question about why she worked so hard for UNICEF, she answered simply, "I do not want to see mothers and fathers digging graves for their children." One can only guess that she saw too much of that when as a girl she was accidentally trapped in Holland during World War II. She suffered extreme hardships during the war and several of her relatives and friends were executed by the Nazis. AH acted as a courier for the underground. She even had to eat tulip bulbs when food supplies ran out or they were confiscated by the Germans just before the Allied troops freed the Netherlands.

1961-Militant students joined James Farmer of the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE) to conduct "freedom rides” on public transportation from Washington, DC, across the deep South to New Orleans. The trips were intended to test Supreme Court decisions and Interstate Commerce Commission regulations prohibiting discrimination in interstate travel. In several places riders were brutally beaten by local people and policemen. On May 14, members of the Ku Klux Klan attacked the Freedom Riders in Birmingham, Alabama, awhile local police watched. In Mississippi,, Freedom Riders were jailed. They never made it to New Orleans. The rides were patterned after a similar challenge to segregation, the 1947 Journey of Reconciliation, which tested the US Supreme Court’s June 3, 1946, ban against segregation in interstate bus travel.
