Countdown to ELD: Get Your Burning Questions Answered

Tuesday, August 29, 2017 ● 11:00 AM PT/2:00 PM ET

With time running out for fleets to implement an ELD solution, there are still many questions to be answered. For example: 

  • How do I know my ELD is compliant? 
  • How do I know if I’m exempt? 
  • Who has access to my ELD data? 
  • Would an AOBRD fulfill the mandate? 

This is your chance to get answers to these and other pressing ELD questions.

After a panel of ELD experts addresses some common questions being asked by fleets, you will have the chance to ask your questions about implementing and complying with the ELD Mandate. No topic — technical, operational, or legal — is off limits.

The FMCSA hosted two Q&A sessions in July, which quickly filled up — this is a not-to-be missed opportunity. The December 18, 2017, ELD Mandate deadline is fast approaching, and this could be your only chance to get your questions answered. Don’t wait. Register today!

Leveraging Video Safety to Incentivize and Reward Drivers

Wednesday, August 30, 2017 ● 11:00 AM PT/2:00 PM ET

Your drivers are your most valuable assets, but how can you keep them safe and happy on the road? No longer can you rely on a simple safety bonus once a year. You need to continually motivate your drivers while ensuring safety is maintained throughout your fleet. Video safety provides an objective way to measure your drivers’ progress. Better yet, it can be used to help incentivize them to be safer and reward those who are. 

Join us on August 30th to learn how Cypress Truck Lines successfully implemented a rewards program, best practices for rolling out the program, and how it has impacted their drivers’ results.

Wednesday, September 6, 2017 ● 11:00 AM PT/2:00 PM ET

Today’s truck driver is every bit a professional as any other skilled job. But if you want people to view trucking as a profession, you need to package it as such.

Our panel of expert speakers will discuss:
    • Building relationships with truck driving schools
    • Attracting younger drivers
    • Better onboarding practices
    • Rethinking pay and home time
    • Benefits you may not have thought of
    • Outlining and rewarding clear goals and expectations
    • And more!

HDT Editor in Chief Deborah Lockridge will lead the discussion and will be joined by Duff Swain, President of Trincon, and Tom McKellar, VP of Transportation for Plastic Express.

Why Fleets Should Be Looking Beyond ELD

Tuesday, September 12, 2017 ● 11:00 AM PT/2:00 PM ET

With the ELD Mandate deadline looming, fleets are understandably focused on ensuring they are compliant. But many fleets plan to minimally comply – investing as little as possible in ELD technology. For those fleets, ELDs will always be a cost center. By contrast, for fleets taking a long-term view, ELDs can be a profit center.

In this event, John Seidl, Transportation Consultant at Integrated Risk Solutions - a nationally known DOT/FMCSA expert - and 25-year telematics veteran Pete Allen, Executive Vice President at MiX Telematics, will describe how fleets can leverage ELDs for strategic advantage, including:

  • Improved safety

  • Improved efficiency

  • Improved security

Attendees will learn how fleets taking this approach have been able to reduce their overall costs by $50-100 per vehicle, per month, even after accounting for the cost of their ELD solutions.

John Seidl, Transportation Consultant, Integrated Risk Solutions

Pete Allen, Executive Vice President Sales, MiX Telematics (North America)
