In 2015, Omnitracs launched an industry advocate web site dedicated to providing information about the then-pending ELD mandate. was intended to explain the origin of the mandate, illustrate how the mandate had progressed over the past decade, and supply both fleets and owner/operators with the information they need to understand and prepare for the legislation. 

Since the mandate was published in December 2015, continues to cover the mandate, with more of a focus toward helping our industry know what questions to ask when vetting ELD providers, offer tips on how to roll out technology to drivers and staff, and even break down the nuts and bolts of what was included in the final rule, who must comply, and who gets an exemption.

From white papers to video presentations from industry experts such as the FMCSA’s own Joe DeLorenzo, to HOS fine and ELD ROI calculators and blog posts, continues to serve our industry with a wealth of information about “all things ELD mandate.”

If you haven’t visited, or just haven’t visited lately, we encourage you to check it out.  Whether you’re interested in what the mandate is all about, or how you can leverage all the benefits beyond simple compliance, is your go-to resource.
