The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) announced on July 10, 2017, its electronic logging device (ELD) Implementation National Tour – a tour designed to educate the public and increase awareness to help commercial motor vehicle (CMV) drivers transition to ELDs.

In several cities across the country, FMCSA expert representatives will present information focussed on drivers and their implementation of ELD.  As required by law, all carriers subject to the ELD Rule must convert from paper or software based logging  to the use of a registered ELD, unless they have an Automatic On-Board Recording Device (AOBRD).  The deadline for compliance is December 18, 2017.  At the tour locations, FMCSA personnel will be available at the interactive exhibit booths to answer questions and educate those affected by the new ELD Rule. They can help drivers understand their responsibilities and provide resources to them.

 

       FMCSA’s ELD Implementation National Tour dates and locations are as follows:

    • July 13-15 – Iowa 80 Truckstop Jamboree (Walcott, Iowa)

    • August 24-26 – Great American Trucking Show (Dallas, Texas)

    • September 25-27 – North American Commercial Vehicle Show (Atlanta, Georgia)

    • October 14-15 – California Trucking Show (Ontario, California)

    • October 21-24 – American Trucking Associations Management Conference & Exhibition (Orlando, Florida)

    • November 6-8 – Women in Trucking Accelerate! Conference & Expo (Kansas City, Missouri)
