10 Steps to ELD Migration Success

It has almost been a year since the first electronic logging device (ELD) Mandate deadline passed. Many carriers that were able to take advantage of the grandfather clause opted to use automatic onboard recording devices (AOBRDs) and transition to ELDs by the second deadline — December 16, 2019. If it seems like no time has passed since last year’s deadline, keep in mind how much needs to be done in the next year. As a refresher, the ELD Mandate grandfather clause states that a motor carrier that installs and requires a driver to use an AOBRD in accordance with §...

Canadian ELD Mandate Updates

Updated October 16, 2018 The final Canadian ELD Mandate rule is expected to release this year or in the first quarter of 2019 (best guesses). While the full information is still not available, fleets can still educate themselves to prepare. A lot of the proposed rule is expected to be similar to the U.S. ELD Mandate — great news for the many Canadian carriers whose business involves cross-border transit and already need to comply with the U.S. mandate for that reason. Transport Canada published a proposed rule in the Canada Gazette last December, the same time the U.S. ELD Mandate...

Here are some key highlights that fleets should note. ELD enforcement challenges Drivers need to be prepared for roadside enforcement and one of the key things drivers need to understand is whether they have an automatic...

Post-ELD Enforcement Date: Regulatory Update

April was a busy month since the hard ELD enforcement date starting April 1. Changes continue to be made in agriculture and tank hauling. CVSA is focused on day-to-day enforcement as well as an Hours of Service enforcement road check. ELD Exemptions There have been many exemptions filed for livestock and agriculture haulers in recent months. In the agriculture exemption, no ELD is required if the vehicle is within a 150-mile radius of the beginning of the load (the farm or ranch). On April 18, 2018, Tennessee passed a bill signed by Governor Bill Haslam to not use enforcement funds...

ELD Enforcement Starts April 1. Are Your Drivers Prepared?

During the “soft enforcement” period since the ELD Mandate took effect on Dec. 18, drivers caught running without proper ELD equipment, documentation, or training have been written up, but neither they nor the companies they drive for have been penalized. No points were levied against either trucking firms or their drivers under the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA)’s Compliance, Safety, and Accountability program. Nor were trucks being placed out of service for ELD violations. That all changes beginning April 1. CSA points will be levied against drivers and their companies, and trucks will be put into the penalty box...
