J.J. Keller Helps Fleets Ensure Full Compliance by December 16 ELD Deadline

FREE Guide Maps Out Comprehensive AOBRD to ELD Transition Plan

Neenah, WI - With less than nine months to go until the final ELD compliance date, over 60% of logging devices still in use are only AOBRD-compliant, meaning a significant percentage of carriers have yet to complete the transition to ELDs.

In addition to giving fleets the chance to complete a one-on-one ELD compliance check with one of their compliance specialists, J.J. Keller & Associates, Inc. is offering a FREE guide to assist fleets through each phase of the transition. Over a thousand copies of the 2019 Hours of Service Blueprint have already been sent out, providing fleets with critical information for navigating complex ELD requirements and validating device compliance, as well as helping them reach compliance with minimal stress and as little driver turnover as possible.

“Helping fleets comply with the ELD mandate has been a central focus of ours for the past few years,” said Tom Reader, senior director of marketing at J.J. Keller & Associates, Inc. “With the final deadline approaching, we’ve organized our expertise into a step-by-step guide to ensure fleets who have yet to make the move from AOBRDs to ELDs are able to do so according to a reasonable timeline and with minimal challenges.”

Using quizzes, checklists, FAQs and other interactive tools, the guide covers each phase of the transition to ELDs, from completing training to understanding back-office and driver responsibilities, effectively auditing electronic logs, updating hours-of-service policies and procedures, and handling roadside inspections. Fleets can request their free copy at JJKeller.com/HOSBlueprint.
