Understanding FMCSA Final Rule on ELDs

What is the FMCSA’s Electronic Logging Device (ELD) Mandate?

In December 2015, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) released the final ruling requiring the use of Electronic Logging Devices (ELDs) for the commercial truck and bus industries. The final rule was implemented to improve road safety, strengthen compliance, and protect commercial drivers. It is predicted that over three million commercial motor vehicles will be affected by this ruling. This rule will also help reduce the overall paperwork burden for both motor carriers and drivers by increasing the use of ELDs within the motor carrier industry.

You can depend on Connected Vehicles and Geotab technology to ensure compliance in all aspects for your fleet.
