Mid-America Trucking Show 2015 Wrap-up


At the end of March, we heading down I-71 for the 2015 Mid-America Trucking Show (MATS) in Louisville, Kentucky. The show is billed as the world’s largest annual heavy-duty trucking industry event and it lives up to that title by drawing over 80,000 attendees each year.

BigRoad's Lee Payne gives a seminar on ELDs and the upcoming mandate.This year’s show was a big one for BigRoad. Our Product Marketing Manger, Lee Payne, gave a seminar titled: Getting Ready for ELD: Your Guide to Electronic Logging Devices. The seminar focused on the upcoming FMCSA ELD mandate and the available options fleet managers, owner-operators, and drivers have to maintain hours of service compliance. The seminar was well attended with Lee fielding a lot of questions and concerns about ELDs.

If you were unable to attend the seminar and would like to know what to expect from ELDs, you can join Lee on our upcoming webinar on the subject. The webinar is on May 6 at 2PM EDT, you can sign up here:

We covered a lot of topics including electronic logbooks, hours of service violations, in-cab technology and the ELD mandate. It’s always great to talk to people about electronic logging as well as meet some of our customers face to face. We’d like to thank everyone who stopped by to say, “hello.” 

Be sure to check out our photos from the show, including one of Jim Melton of J Melton Trucking, one of two winners in our 50″ TV giveaway. If you ever spot the BigRoad truck out and about on it’s travels, send us a photo and we will post it on our Facebook page.
