What You Need To Know About The ELD Mandate

Posted August 21, 2018

What is the ELD Mandate?

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) published the final electronic logging device rule — or ELD Mandate. An electronic logging device is used to electronically record a driver’s record of duty status, which replaces the paper logbook for drivers to record their hours of service (HOS) requirements.  Fleets that were equipped with electronic logging technology (AOBRDs) before Dec. 2017 have until Dec. 2019 to ensure compliance with the published specifications.

Benefits of an ELDs:

  • Save driver time by reducing paperwork to ensure it is recorded properly
  • Keep a dispatcher up to date on driver’s status
  • Reduce a hassle of keeping a paper log
  • Easy tracking driver’s HOS
  • Ensure driving segments are recorded from truck’s engine
  • Ease of data transfer from driver to fleet manager where one can see e-logs

Rugged Handhelds:

The FMCSA addressed that rugged handhelds and tablets can be used as long as the system meets the ELD requirements. With the overwhelming adoption of rugged handhelds, truck drivers find them easy to use and easy to track their hours of service while they are on the road.

What are some mobile device options?

While there are hundreds of devices to choose from, here are some of the newest technologies that are ideal for the on-the-go driver:
