October 11 – 13, 2013 could be an ordinary fall weekend for carriers and shippers in the U.S., or it could be a little different, depending on if you believe the hype about a trucker strike and rally. A Facebook page ( and a website ( have been put up by an individual, Zeeda Andrews, in an effort to rally carriers for what’s being called the "Truckers Constitution Rally." The proposed strike and rally has mostly been a viral grass-roots effort but it’s getting a lot of attention from media and the industry, both positive and negative.
