Among the two most discussed topics within the trucking industry, specifically among truck drivers, are the HOS and ELD regulations. There are a list of reasons why professional drivers have fought long and hard against ELD's, (EOBR's), but most likely, the final FMCSA rule is right around the corner and so are the additional costs for owner operators and fleets.
This program will focus on some of the challenges of ELD's, including costs, with our special guest, Cory Hunt, CEO and Founder of Pivot Technology Resources, a premier source for new and used mobile communications and asset tracking equipment.
Discussion will include how Independents, Owner- Operators and Fleet Owners can reduce their costs through the services of Pivot Technology Resources which continues to provide solutions to the trucking industry's most pressing issues such as the electronic on-board recorders.

Our first show post MATS and a lot went on there, and it was not just about "pretty trucks." There is also a great deal of news within trucking and it is affecting drivers in a big way:
ELD's (EOBR's), New Entrant Testing, Increased Fuel Efficiency, and the infamous truck driver shortage!
Tonight we'll talk about it all (time permitting), so call in and let's hear your voice to the topics on our Open Forum broadcast.

Having attended the recent MCSAC/FMCSA meeting and listening to the recommendations from the Medical Review Board on sleep apnea, Richard Wilson, safety and compliance expert, and Todd Dills, senior editor for Overdrive Magazine, joins us as our guests.
Using Facebook and Twitter to provide "live coverage" of the meeting to thousands of professional truck drivers, our guests will discuss what took place and how social media is providing drivers the opportunity to have their voices heard at MCSAC meetings, even without being present.
Discussion also included EOBR's and harassment issues and the long-haul trucking pilot project.
