Neenah, WI -Cassens Transport, an auto transporter based in Edwardsville, Ill., is nearing completion of the full implementation of J. J. Keller® electronic logging devices (ELDs) in advance of FMCSA's December 2017 ELD mandate deadline.

"We've long been committed to compliance and safety," said Jay Mitchell, quality compliance manager at Cassens Transport. "J. J. Keller is making complying with the ELD mandate easier than we imagined thanks to the simple ELD installation and their driver-friendly ELog application. With the help of their implementation support team, we've installed ELDs in all 1,500 of our vehicles in under nine months — three months ahead of schedule. And 95 percent of our drivers are now running completely paperless."

“We’re honored to help Cassens' multi-location, Teamster-driven fleet to comply with the ELD mandate,” said Tom Reader, director of marketing at J. J. Keller & Associates, Inc. “Their smooth rollout is a tribute to Cassens' planning and proactive approach to compliance, along with J. J. Keller's dedicated implementation services and support team.”

The ELD mandate requires most motor carriers in the U.S. to have a compliant ELD installed in their commercial motor vehicles by December 18, 2017. This regulatory change is intended to ensure that commercial drivers are accurately tracking their record of duty status in compliance with FMCSA's Hours of Service regulations.
