What is the ELD mandate?

The ELD mandate, or ELD Final Rule, is a U.S. federal government regulation specifying that operators of commercial motor vehicles covered by this law will be required to use electronic logging devices, or ELDs

New Rule, same requeriments

It’s the law. If your operation currently requires that you keep a record of hours of service (HOS), you will be replacing paper log sheets with the electronic logging device known as an ELD, For exceptions to this rule see the FAQS section.
Here’s the good news, electronic logging makes the HOS job simpler. The data you are already maintaining will be now be recorded automatically.

Electronic logs mean less paperwork, more time, better productivity, improved driver safety and a substantial increase in profitability.
This guide is your one-stop resource for answering the big questions – what, how and when and other information you’ll need when you’re adding electronic logging devices to your commercial motor vehicle (CMV) feet.

What's 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 exactly does an ELD record and transmit?

The device records and transmits the following:
•Geographic location
•Engine hours
•Vehicle miles
•Driver or authenticated user identification
•Vehicle identification
•Motor carrier identification

Who is required to use an Electronic Logging Device (ELD)?

Basically, everyone who currently uses a paper log or AOBRD will need to replace that system with an ELD. This includes:
•Interstate CMV drivers currently required to keep RODS (record of duty status)
•Vehicles that weigh more than 10,001 pounds
•Vehicles with placarded hazmat loads
•Vehicles carrying more than 8 or 15 passengers (depending on vehicle class)

What will this mean for my business?

Commercial vehicle operators are already required to keep records of duty status. ELDs are not changing that; they’re merely a more effective means of capturing the same information.
Records maintained by ELD offer significant advantages to the company and the driver. Compared to paper HOS sheets, ELD recordkeeping:
•Saves time
•Saves money
•Improves safety
•Promotes efficiency
•Reduces errors
•Reduces effort

Will the ELD Rule Affect Your Fleet?

The short answer is “yes.” Basically, the ELD rule applies to all CMV carriers operating across state lines. Also, drivers who maintain 8 or more days of duty status logs (out of 30 days) will require an ELD. However, there are exceptions for drivers who aren’t required to keep records of duty status (RODS), as well as drivers who use:


•RODS for not more than 8 days during any 30-day period
•Vehicles older than model year 2000
•Driveaway/towaway vehicles — as long as they are part of the shipment
