New Electronic Logging Device Final Rule is Released

Yesterday, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) announced and released the long awaited electronic logging device (ELD) final rule. This final rule mandates use of ELDs by interstate drivers of commercial motor vehicles who currently use a driver’s record of duty status (driver’s log) to record their hours of service. Within two years, motor carriers are required to select an ELD system that connects to the engine of a commercial motor vehicle so driving time can be automatically recorded.

Those who already use compliant electronic logging systems have 4 years to make sure their devices comply with the new ELD rule.
