Alabama Steel Coil Certification
Starting next week, I will be receiving specific information concerning Mercer drivers on how to comply with a new Alabama law that will take effect in June. Any driver that plans to haul steel coils that load or unload in Alabama, will need to be certified by the state of Alabama to do so. To get the certification, drivers will have to go on-line, take a 45 minute course, pass a test, and pay $10-$15. Once the driver receives the certificate, he or she will need to send the certificate to Mercer, then we countersign it. We keep a copy in the driver qualifications file, and return the original to the driver. This is going to be an absolute must, if you ever plan to load or empty coils in the state of Alabama. I will update you again next week with some more specific details.
