The Daily Dash: Hindenburg continues attack on Nikola; OOIDA pushes for more truck parking

The Daily Dash is a quick look at what is happening in the freight ecosystem. In today’s edition, short seller Hindenburg Research continued to lob allegations of wrongdoing at Nikola Corp. Plus, OOIDA said it will renew its push for more funds for truck parking when the next Congress convenes, and TFI International expands its presence in the U.S. logistics market.

Hindenburg continues Nikola attack

Hindenburg Research, the short seller that successfully beat down Nikola’s share price, reloaded Tuesday as the beleaguered electric truck startup refused to engage amid a possible Securities and Exchange Commission inquiry.

Lobbying for more parking

The Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association said it will renew its push for Congress to provide funding for additional truck parking. A bipartisan bill introduced in March has not moved forward; the association remains hopeful legislators will support the effort.
