ELDs are electronic logging devices. These units plug into the vehicle and are designed to automatically create a record each time the vehicle moves. The goal is prevent companies and drivers from creating false logs in an effort to cover more distance or work more hours.
Depending on your operation, you may not need ELD’s. The FMCSA exempts any driver who is covered by the 100 air mile exemption and does not exceed it more than 8 times in a 30 day period is not required to utilize ELD’s.
This means, if your drivers generally start at and return to base within 12 hours and stay within 115 miles, they probably do not need ELDs.
See our webinar and summary for LCT Magazine.
ELDs work with electronic logs, but having electronic logs does not require ELDs. For most companies they’re simply an added expense and an administrative nightmare. Imagine the burden created by having to log every time a vehicle moves around the lot.
