Be our guest for TCA’s next Truckload Academy Live webinar and learn the latest on possible Hours-of-Service (HOS) rule changes, and how to give your voice.  During this webinar, Dean Croke, Chief Insights Officer for FreightWaves, will review the latest metrics that support the industry voice towards more flexibility on the HOS.  TCA’s Vice President of Government Affairs, David Heller, will recap where we’ve been, and discuss how carriers can share their voice using these same metrics.  During this webinar, you will learn how the data is informing the flexibility desires in the industry, including the metrics you could use when providing your input during the open commenting period.

Join the online conversation to ensure you are voicing the most informed and specific input to FMCSA during the open commenting period.

Specific topics Include:

  • Review of key risk management and compliance metrics relating to hours of service, including the HOS Daily Driving Utilization Index, the HOS Daily on Duty Utilization Index, as well as a potentially new Sleep Index which measures non-driving time.
  • Identifying which Electronic Logging Device (ELD) metrics to leverage to ensure you deliver an insightful, data-driven comment to FMCSA.
  • A review of the current HOS rules and where we’ve been with the HOS rulemaking.
