Electronic Logging Device

In the United States, most commercial motor vehicles have to comply with the ELD mandate.

What is an ELD?

ELD is an electronic logging device used by the CMV (a mobile app for drivers) drivers to record driving time and HOS- Hours of Service automatically. Also, it captures the data on the attached vehicle engine, vehicle movement, and miles it is driven. 

ELD support planning, indexing, random inspections, and fleet compliance.

ELD consists of a vehicle tracking device connected with the truck, fleet management software, and a mobile app. 

How ELD works?

To calculate the actual HOS – Hours of Service, ELD is merged with the vehicle engine to record the driving time. ELD establishes a direct connection with the vehicle’s engine. It automatically starts recording the driving activity and other information such as ignition status, location, engine hours, and total miles driven.
Collected data then send to the server where duty status logs are cerated and pushed back to the ELD mobile APP for the driver to view. Drivers can access their logging information from an ELD APP through their smartphone and tablet. The same data can also be viewed by the fleet and compliance manager, who monitors and analyzes compliance with ELD Reports, Maps, and more.

Who needs an ELD?

Well, the FMCSA does allow exemptions for the drivers who do not require to keep Records of Duty Status (RODS), and:

  1. The driver uses RODS for not more than 8 days during any 30 days
  2. The driver of the vehicle older than the model year 2000
  3. Driveaway-towaway drivers, in consideration of the commercial motor-driven, is a part of the shipment.
  4. All drivers operating in the US needs to use ELD to record their RODs
