Despite receiving a partial exemption, TRALA felt that FMCSA had not left TRALA members enough time to properly equip their fleet, and determine how to operate their rental fleets in compliance with the ELD mandate. TRALA continued to discuss further options with FMCSA to help ease the burden on the […]
