Running a fleet's Human Resources and Safety & Compliance departments would be challenging at any point in time, but more so through a pandemic. Adam Lang, Halvor Lines' chief risk officer, came to trucking just eight years ago, but he has made quite an impression in that short time, including being named HDT's Safety & Compliance Award winner for 2020. We spoke with Adam about the state of the industry and the pressing issues that trucking will face in the New Year as well as his thoughts on the year just past.
