Illinois Farm Bureau members now have a new way to get on-demand information about ag-related transportation issues.
Rodney Knittel, assistant director of transportation and infrastructure, launched a video series to expound upon key transportation topics. The first two videos provide an in-depth look at CDL licensing and Entry Level Driver Training. Each video lasts around four minutes and can be found at myifb.org.
“We continue to look at ways to add value for our members as they navigate the complexities of transportation rules and regulations,” said Knittel. “We want them to be as informed as possible and look at different ways to distribute this information.”
Knittel plans to add more videos throughout the year. IFB also provides in-person and virtual events in the winter with its Rules for the Road meetings. Knittel also compiles a yearly book highlighting transportation rules and regulations that is available for IFB members at no additional cost.
