See who needs an ELD

The FMCSA requires most motor carriers and commercial vehicle drivers who need to maintain a record of duty status (RODS) to have an ELD in their vehicles. The ELD rules also require drivers using Automatic Onboard Recording Devices (AOBRDs) in the past to now be using eLogs.

Frequently asked questions

How much will it cost for my fleet to be ELD compliant?

Cost and pricing model will vary by provider, depending on which components are included in an ongoing subscription and which components you own outright. For example: Some providers may give you the engine connectivity hardware and ongoing software as a subscription, but give you flexibility to buy the right devices or bring your own device (BYOD) for your drivers’ needs. Some providers may include the driver’s device for an upfront cost or in a higher pricing subscription, but this hardware is often proprietary with less flexibility of how it can be used beyond electronic logging.

REMEMBER: You can turn the cost of being Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) compliant into a profit with the right ELD solution in place.

Do I need to have GPS tracking to be ELD compliant?

To ultimately meet the ELD Rule specifications an ELD solution must provide automated, accurate location information at specified increments, which is best accomplished with a GPS fleet management based solution.

Are cell phones allowed to be used with ELDs?

Yes. The ELD Rule accommodates the use of smartphones (Android/iPhone) and other wireless devices as ELDs. Logbook embraces this approach today by utilizing smart phones and tablets for driver interaction with hardware installed in the vehicle.

Why is Logbook a good choice for an Electronic Logging Device solution provider?

We have years of experience delivering simple and effective fleet management solutions to help with compliance for drivers on the road as well as fleet managers back at the home terminal. Logbook is an add-on subscription to the Reveal vehicle tracking solution. Logbook includes the necessary engine connectivity hardware and installation into your vehicle. It also includes access to web-based software for your office team to view HOS driver status in near real-time along with compliance reporting and alerts.

Here is some information about our current Logbook solution: the design of Logbook is compliant with Federal 395.15 AOBRD regulations, which will remain in force until December 2019, which is the final ELD Rule compliance mandate deadline. Logbook is designed with extensibility for future ELD Rule specifications well ahead of the compliance timing requirements with a simple software update for our Logbook users. Our Logbook connects to a wide variety of mobile devices and works alongside our other mobile applications like the Reveal Field App to support capabilities like dispatching and navigation. It reduces upfront costs and helps ensure you remain compliant today and in the future.

We know the value from exprience. Because this is important to you, it’s important to us. We are able to recognize how valuable an electronic logging device is to you because of our deep experience with thousands of vehicles over several years. Our mission is to keep our customers’ needs top of our mind to promote compliant, smooth operations. Our customers realize the benefits. Having an ELD solution in place can help improve overall compliance and administration. Drivers are able to know their time which prevents them from hitting a violation and solution administrators know which driver is able to take a load, as well as, when a violation happens. On top of that, an ELD solution provides opportunity to help reduce paperwork and increase productivity. That means no more file cabinets filled with countless sheets of paper!

We take it mobile. Our approach to elogs is delivered to drivers via mobile device, which is a big advantage for drivers. Our mobile app approach makes it easy to stay current with changing regulations, like the ELD mandate, on a user-friendly platform your drivers already understand.

Where can I learn more about ELDs and the ELD mandate?

Feel free to visit the official FMCSA resources on ELDs and the ELD Rule.

Can I add more Logbook units?

Yes. You can continue to use Logbook and add more units as desired. Our current Logbook solution is compliant and updates for the ELD Rule will NOT require you to change hardware later.

How can I get employees on board with ELD compliance?

1. Select a GPS vehicle tracking provider whose product supports full Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) compliance. Choosing the right provider can make or break proper ELD compliance. Make sure that the provider is knowledgeable about how to support ELD regulations with an easy-to-use solution, and flexible, with tools that are easy to integrate/transition into your current operations (a learning curve is normal, but you shouldn’t need a Ph.D. to use something).

2. Help drivers understand the new tracking tools: As you roll out your new vehicle tracking system, make sure the drivers understand that this new technology will help them maintain ELD compliance.

Your drivers will gain more control over their time, letting them create, edit and manage their own hours – plus, the tracking system gives them ways to help stay compliant, including Hours of Service (HOS) compliance tools; near real-time driver feedback; driver vehicle inspection reporting (DVIR); and IFTA mileage reporting.

For companies that can’t go beyond a certain mileage radius, tracking software’s geofencing capabilities help make it clear when drivers are going beyond the point they can be. And for companies worried about drivers putting in too many hours behind the wheel, features in the mobile app make it easy to calculate how many hours they have left for the day.

3. Implement an employee coaching program to increase engagement. The best way to maintain ELD compliance and help make your rollout a success is through effective and consistent driver coaching – your guys aren’t going to get better if they don’t know what they’re doing wrong.

Share both the good and not-so-good ELD compliance and GPS data, using reports, alerts and data entries that track driver behavior. Violation alerts and reports help managers monitor infractions when they occur, so you can address problems before they turn serious (and costly). The near real-time data that is constantly pouring in from the tracking software lets managers be proactive with instant, visible coachable moments.

4. Get employees on board to make your rollout a success. Don’t make ELD compliance sound like something they have to do because it helps the business – show drivers how it helps them, too, and they’ll be true believers.

The government is mandating electronic HOS compliance to improve safety, reduce risk, manage efficiency, rein in costs and increase overall regulatory compliance – but the one to focus on is safety: When they comply, it ensures they are alert and engaged behind the wheel, reducing the chance of accidents and other mishaps.

Keep the lines of communication open – your drivers may have questions on what they should or should not do – and develop clear written policies that people can reference if they have a question. Encourage people to give feedback on your policies – they might have an idea you didn’t think of.

Last but not least: Coach, encourage and repeat, and your company will be well on its way to compliance.

What happens if I am not in compliance?

If you drive for a living and disregard Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) regulations, Hazardous Materials regulations (HMR) or CDL regulations, well… what exactly does happen?

For starters, fines – and some of them are no joke; they can go into the tens of thousands. And it’s not just the driver who get the fine in many cases – it’s the owner of the vehicle, or the business, that also gets dinged. In the case of CDL violations, including careless driving or speeding, drivers may have their license suspended or revoked. For a business, that could mean the loss of an employee.

And don’t forget that a business’s insurance can go up if the insurer deems the business a liability due to excessive tickets or fines – so it’s not just a one-time fee to pay; it’s higher costs over time, too.

If you’re curious just how high the fines can be, you can get more info on FMCSA fines, HMR fines and CDL fines. And if you’re curious on how you can be confident the business isn’t risking pricey fines and higher insurance costs, it might be time to investigate GPS vehicle tracking.

With near real-time fleet monitoring, management knows what’s going on in the field as it’s happening, meaning problems like speeding or aggressive driving can be nipped in the bud.

A vehicle tracking solution also helps keep track near real-time hours of service (HOS) and sends that information to the office, letting managers alert drivers to help prevent violations before they run out of hours.
