FMCSA Announces Electronic Logging Device Implementation National Tour

The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has announced its electronic logging device (ELD) Implementation National Tour—a public education and outreach campaign geared toward 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 onboard recording device by Dec. 18, 2017. FMCSA agency staff will answer questions, provide consumer-friendly resources and materials, and review drivers’ and carriers’ responsibilities at its interactive exhibit booth.

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

• July 13-15—Iowa 80 Truckstop Jamboree (Walcott, Iowa)
• Aug. 24-26—Great American Trucking Show (Dallas, Texas)
• Sept. 25-27—North American Commercial Vehicle Show (Atlanta, Georgia)
• Oct. 14-15—California Trucking Show (Ontario, California)
• Oct. 21-24—American Trucking Associations Management Conference & Exhibition (Orlando, Florida)
• Nov. 6-8—Women in Trucking Accelerate! Conference & Expo (Kansas City, Missouri)
