The trucking consulting firm J.J. Keller & Associates has announced a new educational event to help fleets prepare for the changes brought on by the upcoming ELD mandate called Practical Guidance for ELog Success: From Ideas to Plan.

The free, five-hour event will be held nationwide in 2017 and is designed to help fleets develop a personalized ELog plan. Attendees will also receive insight on how ELog data should be managed and interpreted to reduce risk and improve operations.

“The day-to-day workload of fleet professionals leaves little time to research, plan and conduct a successful ELog rollout,” said Tom Reader, director of marketing at J. J. Keller. “During this event, we break the process down into essential and manageable components that will help them get their fleet in compliance before the mandate deadline.”

The event will cover specific areas such as personalizing a rollout plan, evaluating an hours of service program and operational needs, and using ELogs to improve fleet performance and compliance. Attendees will receive a 40-page ELog rollout workbook and have the opportunity to ask questions of J.J. Keller subject matter experts.

A calendar of dates and locations for the event is available on J.J. Keller’s website, accessible here. Locations and dates will be added weekly.
