This half-day training program is designed for fleet owners, executives and driver managers, and will cover: the law mandating ELDs; FMCSA’s complex ELD rules; and more than 25 practical, real-world issues and challenges that trucking fleets are encountering as they implement this required technology. The training objective is to open the eyes of fleet managers to the practical and very real operational challenges that ELD implementation presents in order to prepare them to proactively address those challenges through company training, policies, new/revised operational procedures, etc. Recent data suggest that at least 40% of the industry has not yet adopted ELDs. Whether you have or haven’t, this seminar is essential.

  • Presented by Dave Osiecki of Scopelitis Consulting.
  • Added bonus: 5 ELD providers will be participating in our session, both with displays and in a special panel presentation, including Eroad, Omnitracs, PeopleNet, Rand McNally and Telogis.
