If you’re a smaller or mid-sized motor carrier struggling to understand FMCSA compliance or wanting to improve CSA scores, this session is for you. This session will include a review of driver recruitment, retention, training and maintenance, hours of service and other operational programs that every motor carrier needs to know. This review would help small to medium-sized enterprises gain a better grasp on the safety programs, compliance, and risk control. Attend this session to:

  • Understand the fundamentals of motor carrier operations and where to access the resources
  • Gain knowledge of how the costs of safety initiatives are actually investments and will enhance a motor carriers bottom line rather than be a cost
  • Learn how to execute successful implementation of safety programs, compliance and risk control with the motor carrier
