CVSA will enforce the electronic logging device mandate on Dec. 18, 2017, but will take a phased-in approach to out-of-service criteria), which will go into effect on April 1, 2018.
After the U.S. ELD mandate is fully implemented at the end of this year, truck utilization could climb to 100%, squeezing capacity and creating demand for as many as 60,000 additional drivers.
The ELD mandate was the top industry issue on trucking fleets’ minds last year, according to the American Transportation Research Institute’s annual Top 10 list.
