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.
To help you with the decision, our trucking/HOS experts Scott Sutarik and Vik Sridhar have outlined the top 10 questions to ask ELD providers.
