2017 is almost 1/2 over … where did the time go?

2017 has already seen many changes since the inauguration of our new President (No, we will not get into politics here).

E_LOGS

Many of our clients have expressed varied feelings regarding the use of E-logs and if they will actually be implemented in December of this year as now mandated. Many people believed that the new president would void the mandate, however he, along with his new heads of the D.O.T. and F.M.C.S.A. have all said that they implementation date of December 18, 2017 will stand. And the Supreme Court is also upholding this mandate. So, all of us here at Carrier Consultant Group encourage ALL of you to begin searching for the system that will work best with your individual company. Remember, we are here to help you make this decision if you need us.

Effective June 30th, 2017, Carrier Consultant Group is no longer auditing any paper logs as stated in a letter to our clients in March. We will instead be focusing our time on assisting with transitions to E-Logs.

Road Check 2017

The annual nationwide Road Check has come and gone. As our office has only heard from one client about an inspection (A CLEAN LEVEL I), we must assume that all of our clients came through this 72 hour blitz unscathed. And for that, we congratulate all of you for taking Safety and Compliance Seriously!!
