ELD Mandate in Effect for Truck Drivers

Posted: Updated:

As the New Year approaches, a new nationwide rule is now in effect for truck drivers.

Starting this week, truckers are required to log their time on the road electronically.

Team Hardinger is well prepared for the change.

The company has been using electronic logging devices, or ELD’s, since 2011.

Under the hours-of-service rule, truck drivers can drive no more than 11 hours a day, within a 14 hour work day.  They must then be off duty for 10 consecutive hours.

The devices ensure that drivers are complying with the law.

“It's definitely a benefit to the drivers,” said Team Hardinger safety manager Doug Ladds.  “It will manage their hours of service, right to the minute.”

The ELDs also allow companies to pinpoint the locations of their trucks and track information like speeds and stops.

Truck drivers caught operating without the ELDs can be fined.
