The mandate states an electronic logging device (ELD) must replace paper logbooks to electronically record a driver's Record of Duty Status (RODS) to verify their compliance with Hours of Service (HOS) requirements.
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) passed the ELD Mandate in December 2015. This mandate requires all commercial motor carriers and truck drivers to implement certified electronic logging devices (ELDs) to record hours of service (HOS).
Mounting Your Electronic Logging Device
To address those ELD cost concerns, the FMCSA has provided that smartphones, tablets, and rugged handhelds can be used as long as the system as a whole meets ELD requirements, with a hardwired connection to the truck’s engine.
Federal law not only requires drivers to implement certified ELDs. The law also states that devices must be mounted. Mounting an ELD has many benefits, including decreased costs.
Avoid Fines: failure to comply with the mandate's requirements will result in penalties.
Prevent Insurance Losses: distracted driving in a company-owned vehicle is one of the top insurance losses, averaging $100,000 per incident.
We understand that complying with the ELD Mandate is a large undertaking for most companies. We want to make it easier by taking the guesswork out of selecting your mounting solution.

Non-Compliance Fines will cost you a base fee of:
$8,672 Per Acute Violation
Fines can be increased or reduced based on points assigned to different Subject Factors. Points are converted to a percentage which is added or subtracted to/from the base fine.
An ELD replaces the paper tracking used by many fleets. The ELD mandate is intended to benefit truck drivers and commercial motor carriers with:
Lower fuel costs
All drivers who are required to keep paper records of duty status are included in the mandate. Exempt from the mandate are vehicle models dated 1999 or prior, trucks that are being shipped (cargo), and short-haul drivers.
Commercial motor carriers and truck drivers must implement certified ELDs by December 2017. Fleets already using electronic logging technology have until December 2019 to ensure compliance with published specifications.
