It’s a major change in transport regulation and you need to get yourself ready for it. Lose all confusion and break the myths about ELD mandate.

Therefore, I’m going to answer to what ELD is, how will effect your business and clear all the buzz around it.

Let’s start.

What is an Electronic Logging Device – ELD?

It’s an electronic solution for professional truck drivers and commercial motor carriers to track Hours of Service – HOS compliance.

Electronic Logging Device

The new ELD have to:

  • connect to the truck’s engine in order to record if the truck is in motion
  • allow the driver to log in and select On-duty, Off-duty, or On-Duty Not Driving, and depending on vehicle movement drive segments must be selected automatically
  • graphically display a Record of Duty Status – RODS, to make a quick look of hours easier for a driver
  • provide data in a format that can be transmitted to law enforcement in a different ways, such as wireless web services or USB
  • be provider-certified that the device meets the proper specifications
  • be listed on an FMCSA website

Does ELD apply to me and when should I have it?

All CDL drivers, required to keep a RODS (also called HOS reports), will have to use it by 2017. There are around 3 million vehicles in this category, and 3.4 million drivers.
