It’s the law. If your operation currently requires that you keep a record of hours of service (HOS), you will be replacing paper log sheets with the electronic logging device known as an ELD. For exceptions to this rule see the FAQs section.
Here’s the good news, electronic logging makes the HOS job simpler. The data you are already maintaining will now be recorded automatically. Electronic logs mean less paperwork, more time, better productivity, improved driver safety and a substantial increase in profitability.
This guide is your one-stop resource for answering the big questions — the what, how and when and other information you’ll need when you’re adding ELDs (electronic logging devices) to your commercial motor vehicle (CMV) fleet.
