Interstate Commerce Last Mile Delivery Association

By flexible-workforce | 10/21/17

The Interstate Commerce Last Mile Delivery Association was formed to educate, inform and promote the first and final mile of the E-commerce supply chain.  As transportation demands have increased due to on-line sales, more and more shippers, LTL Carriers, Local Couriers and Independent Sole Proprietors all need to connect and coordinate to achieve the desired dock to door delivery as economically as possible

In 1994 U.S. Congress enacted a statute (49 U.S.C. § 14501(c)(1)) that controls over state and local law:

General rule: a State, political subdivision of a State, or political authority of 2 or more states may not enact or enforce a law, regulation, or other provision having the force and effect of law related to a price, route, or service of any motor carrier (other than a carrier affiliated with a direct air carrier covered by section 41713(b)(4)) or any motor private carrier, broker, or freight forwarder with respect to the transportation of property. Similar provision in 14501(b) focused exclusively on freight forwarders and brokers
