Understanding Electronic Logging Device (ELD) Compliance
Electronic Logging Device (ELD) Compliance requires all CDL drivers to keep a record of duty status (RODS) using an ELD to track their hours of service (HOS).
Electronic Logging Device (ELD) Compliance requires all commercial truck drivers to have a certified ELD installed and functioning within the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCA’s) guidelines with full data transfer and download available for the use of law enforcement and real-time information by December 2017 and drivers will have 2 years following that to comply.
It is recommended that installs begin as early as possible to work out any issues that may arise to keep downtime to a minimum. Another benefit from selecting your ELD and/or fleet management system early means you have time to implement, make the right decision on devices, train your staff, and get the tools your drivers need without being rushed by a deadline.
ELD’s are already proven to help cut fuel costs, lower crash rates, and increase driver safety. In addition to improvements in safety, Fleet Management Systems have been developed to plan, execute, and optimize routes, track driver information such as e-logs of hours of service and records of status (on or off duty), real-time vehicle performance (speeding, excessive idling, hard braking etc.) and make better decisions about when trucks need regular maintenance to be scheduled.
