The ELD Landscape Ahead 

With the electronic logging device mandate set to take effect Dec. 18, the business landscape looks very different for those who will be compliant and those who are not. 

Our Aug. 23 LiveOnWeb program looks at the impact of the regulation from multiple angles that have significant effects on fleets' bottom lines:

  • Freight Capacity. Many are projecting reduced capacity of about 3-5%. What will be the trickle-down effect from this? 
  • AOBRDs: How are fleets that are operating with automatic on-board recording devices, which are grandfathered in for two years, affected?
  • Enforcement. How strict will state troopers be? Will we see noncompliant trucks pulled off the road in droves?
  • Shippers. What strategies will they enact to ensure their goods are delivered safely and on time?

Watch our latest episode below, and you'll treat yourself to real-world fleet executive, guidance from a regulator, and more!
