ELECTRONIC LOGGING DEVICES (ELD’S)

While the ELD mandate went into effect on December 18, 2017, the enforcement date was April 1, 2018.  Most operators were compliant with the regulation prior to December, however, some drivers and companies delayed the implementation until the regulation was going to be enforced.  The mandate’s impact has been significant even prior to April 1st, and we expect that trend to continue.

To be clear, the hours of service (HOS) allowance did not change.  What did change was the driver’s ability to be flexible, especially during waiting or idle-time scenarios. The result is drivers are much more likely to decline moves which eat into their HOS.  The cost of moves which delay the driver in any way, even 15 minutes, is going up.  Without the “fudge factor,” those 15 minutes could be the difference between completing the move in one day or taking an additional day.  That loss of productivity erodes driver pay.  Hence all the headlines about increased trucking costs.
