Top 10 Things to Know about ELD Mandate

ELD Mandate Introduction

Now that the final rules are out and the Electronic Logging Device (ELD) mandate is in effect, it’s time to get educated and then implement. As with any new technology, there are plenty of questions surrounding ELDs. At its core, the law aims to heighten road safety by ensuring that drivers are abiding by Hours of Service rules. There are, however, some side benefits to drivers as well – increased efficiency as well as time and cost savings. This white paper will focus on the top 10 things that every professional driver should know about the rules.

ELD: Top 10 Things to Know

1. Definition of ELD

First, it’s important to understand how the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) defines an ELD:
“An ELD is a recording-only technology, used to track the time a CMV is operating. An ELD is integrally connected to the CMV’s engine, uses location information, and is tamper resistant. An ELD automatically tracks CMV movement, but allows for annotations by both the driver and the motor carrier’s agent to explain or correct records. An ELD is not necessarily a physical device; it is a technology platform, and may be portable or implemented within a device not permanently installed on a CMV.”1

2. Data elements that will be automatically recorded

As per the final rules, there are a number of data pieces that are automatically recorded by ELDs:

• Date
• Time
• CMV location
• Engine hours
• Vehicle miles
• Driver or authenticated user identification data
• Vehicle identification data
• Motor carrier identification data
• What kind of vehicle location information will be recorded?

Communication of vehicle data and hours of service is transmitted over a mobile network. FMCSA doesn’t require the use of the satellite-based global positioning […]

1940’s Autocar C-Series Trucks – Throwback Thursday

We fould these two old Autocar commercial truck pictures for Throwback Thursday

One is a 1947 C-series model and the other is a 1949 C-series model. Autocar trucks are awesome trucks and there’s a lot of US history tied in to the Autocar name.

Here’s some interesting info we found on Wikipedia:

The Autocar Company is a Hagerstown, Indiana specialist manufacturer of severe-duty, Cab Over Engine vocational trucks. Started in 1897 inArdmore, Pennsylvania as a manufacturer of Brass Era automobiles, and trucks from 1899. The last cars were produced in 1911 and the company continued as an innovative maker of severe-duty trucks. In 1953 Autocar was taken over by the White Motor Company which made Autocar their top-of-the-line brand. White was taken over in turn by Volvo Trucks in 1980 with Autocar continuing as a division. In 2001, it was sold to GVW Group, LLC, which revived Autocar as an independent company. Autocar now builds three models of custom-engineered, heavy duty trucks and has regained leading positions in several vocational segments.

Autocar truck pictures are from the remarkablevehicles.com and remarkablecars.com websites.
