The House of Representatives has rejected a proposal to delay the implementation of the electronic logging device (ELD) mandate. Despite this move, certain members of the industry still have concerns about the mandate. There is no clarity about the guidelines of the mandate or on the technical specifications of the ELD. There are uncertainties in the enforcement, security, and data transfer from the device to law enforcement.
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has not yet certified any ELD as compliant. This means that those who want to purchase an ELD are not sure if they are compliant according to the FMCSA guidelines or not.
