Become ELD Compliant with GoGPS Electronic Logging Devices
What are Electronic Logging Devices?
Electronic logging devices, or ELDs are electronic devices that allow commercial truck drivers to easily keep track of their hours of service (HOS) compliance. Electronic logging devices communicate with the vehicle’s engine to collect data elements such as date, time, location, engine hours, vehicle milage and even driver authentication. Equipping your fleet with electronic logging devices helps to automate your drivers compliance efforts while simultaneously improving overall productivity by keeping your fleet on the road and moving, instead of dedicating the time to manually entering compliance data.
The FMCSA Electronic Logging Device (ELD) Mandate:
As of April 2015 The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) is positioned to mandate the use of electronic logging devices in commercial fleets. While the rules offical publication date has yet to be announced, it is expected that commercial fleets will have two years to comply with the published specifications in the FMCSA’s mandate. It is predicted that over three million commercial motor vehicles will be affected by this ruling. With the aim of reducing crashes, injuries and deaths caused by professional drivers, the new rules will undoubtably be comprehensive in it’s detailing, but by depending on Geotab technology, you can rest assured that your fleet will be compliant in all aspects.
