Electronic Logging Device (ELD) Compliance

An electronic logging device (ELD) is used to automatically record a drivers Record of Duty Status (RODS) and replaces paper-based Hours of Service (HOS) requirements. Commercial trucking fleets must adopt or transition from legacy Automatic On-Board Records Devices (AOBRDS) to ensure compliance and avoid HOS fines. Devices connect to existing engine computers and a mobile device to provide proof of compliance to law enforcement, display metrics and warnings to drivers, and transmit compliance and fleet data back to fleet dispatchers electronically. In addition to the mandated compliance, ELDs provide a wide range of insight, efficiencies, and safety for drivers, operators and public.
Don’t end up on the side of the road. Comply with FMCSA ELD mandate and deliver a great driver experience with iPad and Apple Pencil vehicle solutions from Connection.
