Neenah, WI - One of the key challenges transportation professionals face under FMCSA’s ELD mandate is understanding how to successfully manage their transition to ELogs.

“Fleets now have a very small window in which to switch to ELogs before the December 2017 ELD mandate deadline,” said Thomas Bray, transportation industry consultant at J. J. Keller & Associates, Inc. “And that window is closing. It's important for these fleets to realize that this switch will impact everything from Hours of Service to scheduling, delivery time, driver training, log auditing, and more. So the better they manage the change, the better they can prevent unforeseen delays, operational problems or being put out of service if their transition isn't completed in time.”

To provide fleets with best practices for successfully managing the transition to ELogs, J. J. Keller has created a complimentary whitepaper titled “ELog Transition Basics: How to Make the Change More Manageable.” This whitepaper includes guidance for selecting an ELD system, implementing ELDs, getting management and driver buy-in, developing ELD policies and procedures, providing driver and supervisor training, and more.

"The change management approach presented in this whitepaper will work whether a fleet has five trucks or 5,000 trucks," added Bray. "But only if it's put into action now. Fleets that procrastinate are going to find the transition very difficult to accomplish properly in time for the mandate deadline."
