Yes indeed – it is finally here! So what does that really mean for you?
Well, if you have been required to use paper logs to document your drive time and hours of service, then the mandate will require you to use an ELD – otherwise known as an electronic logging device.
Overdrive magazine reported earlier today that the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) announced that the federal rule to require truck operators to use electronic logging devices to keep records of duty status is slated to be published in the Federal Register this Friday. The rule will take effect Dec. 10, 2017, giving carriers and drivers a two-year window to comply with the rule’s requirements.
