Electronic Logging Devices (ELDs) have been a long time coming. The first efforts to require them began in 2000. After much discussion and legislation, rules requiring ELDs were finally passed in December 2015. Transportation companies, like YRC Freight, were given two years to get their ELD systems installed and drivers trained.
That deadline is fast approaching. As of December 18, 2017, most commercial motor vehicle operators must begin using ELD systems to record their driver’s driving time and hours-of-service (HOS) records as the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has mandated.
YRC Freight is ready!
“We are ready for the ELD mandate. December 18th marks a new way of working for YRC Freight. We will be in compliance with the ELD mandate through our full compliance with the Automatic Onboard Recording Device (AOBRD) extension.” — Darren Hawkins, president of YRC Freight
More than 8,800 active YRC Freight city and linehaul drivers have completed training. YRC Freight is readier than ever to provide safe, reliable, damage-free deliveries.
Many industry experts agree that requiring ELDs is the biggest change in the transportation business since deregulation in 1980. We believe it’s a change for the better.
