ELD Mandate Overview - Class 8 Trucks

  1. 1. ELD Overview
  2. 2. Electronic Logging Device (ELD) The ELD rule is intended to help create a safer work environment for drivers and make it easier, faster to accurately track, manage and share Records Of Duty Status (RODS) data. “Since 1938, complex on-duty/off-duty logs for trucks were made with pencil and paper, virtually impossible to verify,” stated US Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx. FMCSA states: • Estimated annual net benefit of more than $1B – Reducing paperwork – Increase efficiency of roadside law enforcement personnel in reviewing the driver records • Annually, should help: – Save 26 lives – Prevent 562 injuries – Prevent 1,844 crashes involving CMVs
  3. 3. Electronic Logging Device (ELD) ELD Rulemaking establishes: • Minimum performance and design standards for hours-of-service (HOS) electronic logging devices (ELDs) • Requirements for the mandatory use of these devices by drivers currently required to prepare HOS record of duty status (RODS) • Requirements concerning HOS supporting documents for audits and compliance • Measures to address concerns about harassment resulting from the mandatory use of ELDs
  4. 4. ELD Mandate- Timing • ELD Rule was published December 11, 2015 • Compliance date is 2 years after ELD Rule was published (December 16, 2017) • Existing Automatic On-board Recording Devices (AOBRDs) are Grandfathered for 2 years after compliance date – AOBRDs must be upgraded or replaced with ELDs within 4 years of publication of the final rule (December 16, 2019) • Short Haul Drivers (100 air-mile drivers) are exempt – May use paper logs up to 8 days in any 30 day period – Any Short Haul Driver that uses a paper log for more than 8 days in a 30 day period must install & use an ELD

  6. 6. ELD Benefits for data collection ELDs provide the platform for additional safety technologies in the form of data, such as: – Onboard event recording to monitor driving habits – In-cab training – Speed monitoring – Lane departure notifications – Theft prevention of equipment – GPS for better routing – Etc….
  7. 7. ELD Driver Interaction- Fixed Mounted Portable ELDs must be fixed mounted during vehicle operation
  8. 8. Roadside Inspection Process • Must be capable of producing Graph Grid at Roadside • One step process for Data Transfer • It is required that RODS be shared in one of two ways at roadside (choice of the driver or motor carrier): – Printout (not all ELDs provide) – Screen display must be visible to enforcement at a reasonable distance • Acceptance of data via fax, email or other method of transmission is at the discretion of the inspector
  9. 9. Supporting Documents: General • Retain maximum of 8 documents per 24-hour duty day, such as: toll/fuel receipts, bill of lading, etc • If more than 8 documents are submitted per day, must retain first and last document of day known as “book-ending” • Must be retained for 6 months • Must be submitted within 13 days • Must be able to be matched to RODS • Cannot be destroyed, defaced, or altered • Driver must make supporting documents in his/her possession available to authorized Federal, State, or local official upon request
