At the close of 2017, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) deadline came due for implementing certain changes to trucking industry standards and practices announced in 2015. The Electronic Logging Device or ELD Fleet Mandate affects hundreds of thousands of commercial motor vehicle (CMV) owners and operators across the United States, Canada and Mexico. The ELD fleet mandate is mentioned in section 32301 of the Commercial Motor Vehicle Safety Enhancement Act as part of the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century (MAP-21) Act, and calls for the Secretary of Transportation to adopt regulations requiring electronic logging devices be used in CMVs involved in interstate commerce when operated by drivers who are required to keep records of duty status (RODS). These RODS not only capture the hours worked by the operator, but whatever else the fleet management requires for record keeping purposes such as company name, truck or tractor/trailer number, location and hours on-duty but not driving, location and hours driving, hours and location of sleeping while on the road (sleeper berth), etc.
