Electronic Log Device

Electronic Log Device Auditing Service

An Electronic Log Device (ELD) is a technological advancement that allows the driver to track his or her hours of service. This is a cost-efficient, environmentally conscious, and simple solution to managing yours drivers’ workloads. This device also gives the opportunity to identify potential violations before they occur. This can help relieve administration burden and stress. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) requires the majority of commercial vehicles to have an ELD.

The ELD rule allows limited exceptions:

  • Drivers who operate under the short-haul exceptions. They may continue using time cards and are not required to keep Records of Driver Status (RODS). They also do not need an Electronic Log Device (ELD)
  • Drivers who use paper Records of Driver Status (RODS) for no more than 8 days out of every 30-day period
  • Drivers who conduct driveaway-towaway operations, in which the vehicle being driven is the commodity being delivered
  • Drivers of vehicles manufactured before the year 2000 that cannot support Electronic Log Device (ELD) hardware

HDS Safety Services can monitor your ELD devices and help make sure your fleet is adhering to DOT compliance regulations.
