Easily Track Hours of Service (HOS) compliance Put simply, an ELD is an electronic solution that enables professional truck drivers and commercial motor carriers to easily track HOS compliance. All CDL drivers required to keep a Record of Duty Status (RODS) must use an ELD to document their compliance with HOS rules. Benefits of ELDs Decreased Fuel Costs By monitoring excessive truck idle times or speeding events, fleets can build incentive programs for truck drivers that help increase fuel efficiency. Simplified Regulatory Compliance While complying with the ELD Mandate, other regulations can also be easily satisfied, including Driver Vehicle Inspection Reports and IFTA. Saved Time and Money For drivers who use ELDs, ELD manufacturers report an increase of 15 minutes of drive time per driver per day, which translates into big monetary savings.
