The ELD mandate is designed to ensure drivers aren’t being overworked in an effort to keep roadways safe.
ELDs are required for fleets of all sizes, so long as the vehicles and businesses meet certain requirements.
The ELD mandate has been in effect since 2019.
This article is for all small business owners looking to better understand how the ELD mandate affects their business.
Businesses operating a commercial vehicle fleet have more to worry about than just how well its cars and trucks are running. They also have to be concerned with the safety of their drivers. To help ensure businesses are focused on driver safety, the U.S. government requires certain fleet operators to install electronic logging devices (ELDs) in their vehicles. Not complying with these laws can result in significant fines. That’s why small businesses with a commercial fleet need to understand the ELD mandate, whether it applies to their operation and, if it does, how they will adhere to these laws.
