Your fleet should already have written policies and procedures covering expectations for drivers and other company personnel operating with electronic logs, but updates may be needed to align with the requirements of using ELDs. When getting ready for the ELD Mandate, you’ll be much better prepared for the transition if your team has a clear understanding of your operation’s policies and procedures. Ensure the expectations for operating with electronic logging devices (ELDs) are clear by developing or adjusting your policies and procedures to cover the following best practices.
In the end, policies and procedures are only valuable if followed consistently by your team. Make sure your fleet is well positioned for the December 16, 2019 ELD mandate deadline by applying any necessary changes to your current policies and procedures, and clearly communicating expectations across your operation.
