WASHINGTON – The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration today announced its electronic logging device (ELD) Implementation National Tour – a public education and outreach campaign geared toward helping commercial motor vehicle (CMV) drivers transition to ELDs.

In several cities across the country, FMCSA subject matter experts will lead driver-focused presentations and panel discussions on ELD implementation. 

As required by law, all carriers subject to the ELD Rule must convert from paper logs or logging software to a registered ELD if they do not have an ELD by December 18. 

FMCSA agency staff at their interactive exhibit booth will answer questions, provide consumer-friendly resources and materials, and review drivers’ and carriers’ responsibilities.

FMCSA’s ELD Implementation National Tour dates and locations are as follows:

  • August 24-26 – Great American Trucking Show (Dallas)
  • September 25-27 – North American Commercial Vehicle Show (Atlanta)
  • October 14-15 – California Trucking Show (Ontario, California)
  • October 21-24 – American Trucking Associations Management Conference & Exhibition (Orlando, Florida)
  • November 6-8 – Women in Trucking Accelerate! Conference & Expo (Kansas City, Missouri)
