Live Coverage at 2014 Expedite Expo
Topics like HOS (hours of service) and Elogs (electronic logs) are of great interest to the overall trucking industry and will be front and center this weekend as drivers, carriers and industry advocates, along with regulators convene for the 14th Annual Expedite Expo at the Roberts Centre in Wilmington, Ohio.
The discussion is a big one for us at iGlobal, LLC to stay abreast of the evolving requirements in order to adapt our line of MDTs to better serve our customers and help them navigate the changes. Come visit with us at Booth 166 during the expo (July 25-26, 2014) to get a demonstration of the multiple features of our MDTs designed to save time and money for owner/operators and fleets.
On Friday morning, FMCSA Administrator Anne Ferro will address the audience at the 2014 Expedite Expo. We anticipate that Ms. Ferro, who has headed the FMCSA since 2009, will talk about Elogs, HOS and other regulations facing the trucking industry in coming months.
Currently, the trucking industry awaits news of the Federal Highway Bill, along with the status of several proposed rules including: Carrier insurance premiums, Safety Fitness Determination, Speed limiters on trucks.
During Ms. Ferro’s keynote address, we will have a team from our social media department in the audience providing live Tweets, as well as live streaming her entire presentation at /expedite-expo. The format of Ms. Ferro’s presentation is question and answer (Q/A), so get your questions to us ahead of time or during the event and we’ll pass it on to our team to pose live from the floor.
