Disclaimer: On December 12, 2017, the Truck Renting and Leasing Association (TRALA) was notified by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) that they have granted TRALA's request for a 90-Day waiver from the Electronic Logging Device (ELD) Mandate for short-term rental trucks (defined as 30 days or less). The waiver allows drivers to continue to use paper logs to track their hours of service until March 18, 2018 for rentals lasting 30 days or less. This webinar took place prior to the grant of the exemption and does not address the 90-Day waiver.
On Dec. 10, 2015, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) announced its final rule requiring the adoption and use of electronic logging devices (ELDs) by all drivers currently required to complete paper records of duty status (RODS). The rule requires drivers required to complete paper logs, with limited exceptions, to adopt and use compliant ELDs by Dec. 18, 2017, unless they are currently using grandfathered automatic on-board recording devices (AOBRDs). To assist dealers with compliance with the rule, ATD is hosting a webinar with the FMCSA to review specific dealer concerns with the mandate, specifically those dealing with rental and leasing operations.
After atttending this webinar you will better understand:
- When does a driver need to use an electronic logging device
- The criteria for using paper logs vs. an electronic logging device when a commercial motor vehicle is rented
- Compliance dates for implementation of the electronic logging device mandate
