J.J. Keller Provides Timely Guidance in Response to FMCSA Proposed Hours-of-Service Rule Changes

Upcoming webcast offers fleets opportunity to understand the impact, ask critical questions

Neenah, WI - J.J. Keller & Associates, Inc. will host an educational webcast to help fleet professionals understand critical aspects of the recently proposed changes to federal hours-of-service regulations. The webcast, Hours-of-Service Proposal: What it Means for You, is scheduled for 1 p.m. CDT, Thursday, August 22, 2019.

The proposed changes outline several significant revisions, including expanding the 100-air-mile exception, extending the 14-hour rule, changing the “adverse driving conditions” provision, removing or changing the 30-minute break requirement, and modifying the split-sleeper-berth rule.

Attendees will have an opportunity to learn which changes are moving forward, which have been cut, and how their operation might be affected as a result. The discussion will also include a timeline for what happens next, information for getting involved in the rulemaking process, and a Q&A session.

“The proposed changes to hours-of-service regulations will inevitably leave many with unanswered questions,” said Tom Reader, senior director of marketing at J.J. Keller. “Our subject-matter experts are ready to provide detailed guidance so fleets can make informed decisions going forward.”

Fleets can register for the webcast here.
