FMCSA Announces Electronic Logging Device Implementation Tour

 

The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration announced its electronic logging device Implementation National Tour – a public education and outreach campaign geared towards helping commercial motor vehicle drivers transition to ELDs.

In several cities across the country, FMCSA subject matter experts will lead driver-focused presentations and panel discussions on ELD implementation.

As required by law, all carriers subject to the ELD Rule must convert from paper logs or logging software to a registered ELD if they do not have an Automatic On-Board Recording Device by December 18, 2017.

FMCSA agency staff will answer questions, provide consumer-friendly resources and materials, and review drivers’ and carriers’ responsibilities at their interactive exhibit booth.

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,
