The one-year countdown is on. Twelve months from now, nearly all drivers who are required to keep record-of-duty status will need to move from paper logs to electronic logging devices to comply with the new federal mandate.
While some fleets have implemented ELDs, others are just starting their journey toward compliance. Our Dec. 14 LiveOnWeb program (watch the replay above) will help those carriers navigate their way during the coming year, with guidance from experts in the field and from trucking representatives who already have successfully met the challenge.

We didn't spend too much time on the basics of the rule, but if you need to get caught up, you’ll find a three-minute ELD primer video here, or you can check out this two-page summary of the rule provided by American Trucking Associations. And if that’s not enough, go here to read the 516-page rule in its entirety.
