The trucking industry is constantly faced with new challenges in the realms of safety and policy. The rules and regulations under which carriers operate change not only from year-to-year, but at times, month-to-month or even day-to-day. Just understanding these revisions is often confusing enough but making sure they are implemented can prove time-consuming and burdensome.  

TCA presents the latest offering from its regular webinar series aimed at keeping you current on the U.S. regulatory and legislative environment. Updates on what is important to you, as well as essential rulemakings that may present themselves soon, will be provided. Walk away knowing how these regulations will affect your operations and gain the guidance and information you need to fine-tune your current policies and procedures and prepare to design new ones. This session will clarify the Drug and Alcohol Clearinghouse as well as present strategies carriers both large and small can implement to ensure compliance and ease the transition to the clearinghouse.  

This session includes information on the following topics: 

  • Hours of Service 
  • Federal Preemption 
  • ELDs/Detention and the December 2019 Implementation Date 
  • F4A 
  • Infrastructure & The Effects of Doing Nothing 
  • Drug and Alcohol Clearinghouse
  • Possible Fall Legislative Initiatives 

This interactive program will provide opportunities for you to ask questions.
