Why do I need an ELD?
In December 2015 the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) published the final electronic logging device rule or ELD mandate. An electronic logging device, or ELD, records a driver’s Record of Duty Status (RODS), it replaces the paper logbook some drivers use to record their compliance with Hours of Service (HOS) requirements. By December 2017 al fleets are required to implement certified ELDs to record HOS.
ELDs monitor and record additional data about the vehicle and driver that go beyond RODS, from Driver Vehicle Inspection Reports, IFTA automation, and driver behavior reporting on speeding, idling, and hard braking. Most have integrated maps and route guidance, to help drivers avoid construction and heavily congested areas.
Why Do I need an ELD Mount? Using tablets and smartphones as an ELD is cost effective and practical. The FMCSA permitted smartphones, tablets, and rugged handhelds can be used as an ELD given the system in place meets requirements, including a hardwired connection to the truck’s engine. Securing and mounting your ELD keeps all the information at eye level and within reach making it easily accessible for the driver and safer for everyone on the road. As an added benefit, with the overwhelming adoption of smartphones, truck drivers find them easy to use and see them as a vital part of their everyday life on the road. They’re also a perfect fit for drivers looking for a solution that un-tethers them from the cab and allows them the flexibility to choose from a wide range of mobile devices. ELD technology saves money and the benefits are clear: • Reduce fuel costs • Reduce paperwork • Increase driver communication Make life easier for truck drivers and let them focus on them driving!
