Now you are ready to make some money. That means you have a whole other set of questions you need answered.

Whether you have been in business for years or you are a startup company, you know that trucking insurance is one of the top 3 largest expenses. Like fuel and maintenance, it’s a necessity. You don’t run legally without it.

Two and 12 – those numbers have a nice ring to them. We are so proud of two and 12. This is the second year Apex Capital is named one of the Healthiest Companies in America by Interactive Health. That means we take the health and wellness of our employees very seriously. What about the 12? Well, this is the 12th year that Apex is named one of the Best Companies to Work for in Texas. We call it our lucky dozen. That honor is quite special because it’s all about our employees. Sarah King, Apex’s Health and Wellbeing Manager, offered some thoughts about the Healthiest Companies in America award. Apex was one of only 151 companies in the United States to earn this award in 2018. That number went down from 184 companies in 2017, when Apex first won. And Shelley Goodrum, Apex’s Chief Human Resources Officer, has watched Apex grow through the years and she’s pleased to know that the Best Companies to Work for in Texas honor reflects keeping all employees happy during that growth.

A trucker’s office isn’t a desk in a cubicle. It’s a moving 18-wheeler that weighs about 35,000 pounds and rolls up and down the highways. And when truckers are off-duty, they can’t put out an “on break” sign. So, what do they do when they are driving the truck, but they are off the clock? That’s where personal conveyance comes in.
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) defines personal conveyance as “an off-duty status. There are no impacts to the 11- or 14-hour limitations for truck drivers, the 10- or 15-hour limitations for bus drivers, the 60/70-hour limitations, the 34-hour restart provisions, or any other off-duty status.”
