It’s been almost a month since the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) started enforcing the ELD mandate, but the issue is still quite a hot topic in the trucking industry. ELD stands for an “electronic logging device” that, starting December 18, 2017, operators of commercial motor vehicles covered by the law, must install in their trucks to automatically log certain data, mainly about the driver’s hours of service (commonly referred to as HOS). Even though it seems a fairly straightforward regulation, it has stirred plenty of controversy.
The Florida Trucking Association’s (FTA) Annual Conference is taking place on August 3–4, 2017 at the Diplomat Beach Resort in Hollywood, Florida, and QuickLoad is excited to be attending. The two days will be spent alongside industry leaders as well as participating in seminars and workshops that will focus on trucking technologies, logistics, and driver accomplishments.
The FTA is the trusted voice: Promoting and protecting the interests of Florida’s trucking and transportation industry for more than 80 years. Trucking professionals from drivers to partners to associated vendors meet at the annual event to learn, connect, and work together to tackle important industry issues. The organization’s dynamic advocacy services for the state’s trucking and transportation industry truly resonates with our company’s global logistics works and corporate values.
