ELD Mandate FAQs – RODS Requirements, Exemptions, and Agricultural Trucks

As the deadline looms for the ELD Mandate, many fleets still seek answers to common questions. Here are a few questions and answers to help. Will my RODS requirements change after the ELD Mandate goes into force? Keep this one key fact to keep in mind: Nothing has changed about which drivers must keep a Record of Duty Status (RODS) in a log. The ELD Mandate only specifies the tools used to keep the log. If the regulation you were using before ELD was exempt from RODS , it will still be exempt after the ELD. If I’ve never needed...

When Thinking About the ELD Mandate, Don’t Forget Time for Training

An ancient proverb says “He who hesitates is lost,” and that old piece of wisdom now applies to the owners and operators of the several million large trucks operating in the United States who have yet to install Electronic Logging Devices (ELDs) on those vehicles. Following the U.S. Supreme Court’s mid-June decision not to hear the Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association’s argument against the federal mandate requiring nearly all large commercial trucks to be equipped with ELDs, owners and operators now have four months to comply. The ELD Mandate, passed by Congress in 2012 and outlined in detail by the Department...

ELDs and Rental Trucks: What You Need to Know

As the Electronic Logging Device (ELD) Mandate goes into force in December 2017, truck drivers won’t want to be caught in a truck without a device. Whether your trucking fleet is grandfathered in with an automatic on-board recording device or will be getting an ELD for the first time, ELDs are an essential part of any fleet’s compliance plan. As drivers come to rely on ELDs in daily use, it raises a big question: what happens if you’re in a truck without an ELD? For instance, your truck breaks down and you’re put in a short-term lease truck. Who’s responsible...

Understanding Manual Driver Events: Personal Conveyance and Yard Move

The new rules allow fleets to make personal conveyance and yard moves available to their drivers. This can only be done by allowing it or disallowing it. Unlike automatic duty changes, drivers must manually choose when they start and stop using these statuses. Driving activity for these statuses will be shown in the RODS, but the time is logged differently for each of these statuses so it’s important to know how this can affect your operations. On the grid graph that goes with the log, yard moves and personal conveyance will be shown in the off-duty line and the on-duty...
