On December 18, 2017 - the  Electronic Logging Device (ELD) mandate will go into effect - requiring all trucking fleets to fit an ELD within their vehicles in order to comply with new regulations from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA)

Overview
The electronic logging device (ELD) rule – congressionally mandated as a part of MAP-21 – is intended to help create a safer work environment for drivers, and make it easier and faster to accurately track, manage, and share records of duty status (RODS) data. An ELD synchronizes with a vehicle engine to automatically record driving time, for easier, more accurate hours of service (HOS) recording.

Implementation Timeline

The ELD rule is being implemented in three phases:

12/16/2015 ELD  Final Rule Published. Phase 1: Awareness and Transition Phase - Voluntary use of ELDs; 12/18/2017 ELD Final Rule Compliance Date.
