Frequently Asked Questions

What happens on December 16, 2019?

As of December 16, 2019, the ELD Mandate Full Compliance Phase begins, and motor carriers and drivers subject to the ELD rule will need to use self-certified, registered ELDs.

What are the benefits of ELDs?

The FMCSA introduced the ELD rule to improve road safety, strengthen compliance with Hours of Service regulations and reduce driver fatigue. Benefits of ELDs include:

  • Cutting down on paperwork, saving time and money
  • Helping reduce administration costs
  • Increasing the efficiency of record-keeping and inspections
  • Supporting driver safety
  • Helping minimize violations
  • Delivering real-time access to information
  • Improve your CSA safety ratings by managing the factors that drive your HOS BASIC score

What is an ELD?

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) defines an electronic logging device (or ELD) as “technology that automatically records a driver’s driving time and other aspects of the hours-of-service (HOS) records.”

What is the ELD Mandate?

The ELD mandate is a rule that requires drivers of commercial motor vehicles who keep Hours of Service and records of duty status (RODS) to use a certified, registered electronic logging device (ELD). As of December 16, 2019, full compliance begins and drivers and carriers subject to the ELD rule must be using electronic logging devices. Any fleet still using AOBRDs must also switch to self-certified, FMCSA registered ELDs by this date.

What does an ELD cost?

The more features and capabilities added are reflected in the cost. We can work with you on your needs, and scale up as needed if you're not sure where to start.
