The Electronic Logging Device Mandate
Presentation by Bill Mahorney, Chief, Enforcement Division FMCSA, Department of Transportation
As of December 18th, The ELD Mandate was passed in congress - the new rule mandates any driver required to previously keep a paper record of duty status must install an ELD (electronic logging device) in their vehicle which means instant third party verification that Drivers cannot work more than 14 hours a day and not drive more than 11 hours. It’s an open industry secret that truckers lie about how long they spend on the road. In an industry that already has a crippling shortage of drivers and capacity issues, the bandwidth will now shrink as much as 15% more. As of April 1st – the grace period was over. Bill will be addressing how this will affect the supply chain, logging books, hours of service regulations, and shipping/distributors collaboration with truckers. Bill will tie in Compliance with Collaboration as he details the FMCSA’s role within the new regulations.
