Watch this on-demand webinar for important tips on buying ELDs. Learn the top e-log features to look for and 10 questions you should ask now.

ELDs — Are you ready? The first implementation deadline for truckers is December 18, 2017. By that date, carriers already using automatic onboard recording devices (AOBRDs) must be using electronic logging devices (ELDs). Read this post to get important tips on buying ELDs.


But with so many compliance options out there, how do you know which one is right for your fleet? Although they seem similar, there are major differences.


For example, will the same device work in any class of vehicle? Vehicle compatibility affects training, installation and management. Therefore, just this one factor can have a major impact on the success of your ELD rollout and fleet compliance.
