No more keeping paper log books. Forgetting to enter times and dates. Illegible entries. By December 2017 commercial truck drivers that are required to keep a log must be in compliance with Electronic Logging Devices (ELD). The intent is to help create a safer work environment for drivers, and make it easier and faster to accurately track, manage, and share records of duty status (RODS) data. An ELD synchronizes with a vehicle engine to automatically record driving time, for easier, more accurate hours of service (HOS) recording.
Electronic Logging Devices (ELD) will do all the logging for you. Simply Connect the ELD to the truck, it will begin logging once the truck is in motion. Drivers can log their on-duty, off-duty, or on-duty not driving, which is automatically linked to the motion of the truck.
Pollack, Stoneridge Co., has created the EZ-ELD. It includes three interchangeable connectors, unique Scan and Drive truck pairing, simple user interface for drivers using a mobile app, real time tracking and vehicle location.
