ELD Mandate

Electronic Logging Devices. Are you compliant?

About ELD

Electronic Logging Devices
On December 18 2017, the ELD Mandate came into effect, as instituted by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). The Mandate requires commercial motor vehicle drivers to track their Record of Duty Status (RODS) electronically, using compliant Electronic Logging Devices (ELD) versus paper logbooks. Act now to make sure your fleet is fully compliant by the final deadline of December 16, 2019!

Choose MiX Hours of Service

ELDs fitted by MiX Telematics as part of our Hours of Service solution are fully compliant with the FMCSA’s specifications in terms of performance, design and technical specifications:

  • Our entire system is secure and tamper-resistant.
  • Location data can be captured at ignition, when the engine is switched off, every time the vehicle moves, and at least every hour as regulated.
  • Our ELDs can be connected and synced to a vehicle’s engine.
  • As each driver’s daily duty status changes, the information can be displayed in a graph/grid format.
  • Any malfunctions or errors within the HOS system itself can be detected and recorded automatically.
  • Data can be transferred to enforcement officers as necessary via USB

MiX Hours of Service is also registered with the FMCSA.

Why convert?

Complying with the ELD Mandate has many benefits in the long run.

  • Reduced paperwork

    The FMCSA estimates that an ELD can save a truck driver 19 hours each year by not having to manually fill out a Record of Duty Status (RODS). It also reduces the need to keep messy paper logs.
  • Better planning capability

    Fleet managers and/or dispatchers are kept in the loop at all times about a driver’s status, allowing them to plan better.
  • Lowered crash rates

    It has been proven that drivers using e-logs have significantly lower crash rates and preventable crash rates that those not using e-logs.
  • Compliance made easy

    By complying with the ELD Mandate, drivers and business have the opportunity to take advantage of other electronic compliance solutions such as IFTA.
