Transportation Industry Expert to Discuss Rule Changes and How They Impact Business


Axele, LLC, a Transportation Management System (TMS) company, is hosting a webinar, “Optimizing Your Operation Using New Hours of Service Flexibility.” Attendees will learn how carriers and drivers can use new Hours of Service (HoS) flexibility to improve operation efficiency. Dave Osiecki, a 30-year transportation industry veteran and President of Scopelitis Transportation Consulting, will share his expertise and knowledge about the rule changes during the free webinar on February 17, 2021, at 2:00 PM ET.

“The Hours of Service rule changes are intended to provide greater flexibility for drivers without lowering safety standards,” said Ryan Camacho, Director of Business Development, Axele. “We believe that it is essential for trucking companies to understand these rules and learn how to successfully navigate them in a profitable carrier operation.”

In this hour-long event, Osiecki will discuss the four rule changes that came into effect in October 2020, and how these rules will impact businesses. He will answer questions on:

  • What the new rules are and what they mean for your business
    o Short-haul exception
    o Adverse driving conditions exception
    o 30-minute break requirement
    o Sleeper berth provision
    • How these new rules changed from the previous rules
    • How the new rules will impact your business operations
    • How you can use the new rule changes to become more efficient
    • How Electronic Logging Devices (ELDs) can help your operations
    • And much more
