SC&RA Produces ELD Information for Members

- As part of ongoing efforts to provide SC&RA members pertinent information related to the approaching Federal Motor Carriers Safety Administration’s (FMCSA) deadline for Electronic Logging Devices (ELDs), the Association has developed an informative “top ten” list of ELD vendor questions.

The list, titled “Top Ten Questions to Ask Your Prospective AOBRD/ELD Vendor,” is available on SC&RA’s Members Only webpage. The information was provided by SC&RA member Chris Nelson of ISE Fleet Services and was approved for distribution by the Association’s Transportation Group Safety, Education & Training Committee.

Carriers and drivers who are using paper logs or logging software must transition to ELDs no later than December 18, 2017. Carriers and drivers who use AOBRDS prior to the compliance date must transition to ELDs no later than December 16, 2019.

Crane companies are reminded that ELD requirements could pertain to their operations as well.  Mr. Nelson will present a session during SC&RA’s 2017 Crane & Rigging Workshop later this year on the necessary steps companies must take to ensure compliance.

Additional information concerning ELDs may be found at the FMCSA website.
