ELD and beyond: InSight’s got you covered

If you’ve got to do it, you need time to prepare, a plan... and an experienced Elogs partner.

Implementing an ELD solution for your team doesn’t need to be difficult. But it will take some time, and it needs to be properly planned for.

The FMCSA’s official deadline for having an ELD solution in place is December 19, 2017. But waiting until a month, or a few weeks (!), before that deadline… well, it’s like taking a canoe up that famous creek without a paddle. InSight can help you avoid an ELD implementation nightmare. We’ve got an elogs solution that’s proven, priced right, easy to learn, and comes with in-person service and support. And you can try it now for 60 days, risk-free, to see if it’s right for your operation.

What is actually required by the FMCSA’s ELD mandate?
  • A direct connection with your vehicle’s engine, if your truck was manufactured after the year 2000. Any GPS or smartphone solution that doesn’t include that direct connection will not comply with the mandate.
  • The ELD solution must include the capability to electronically transfer HOS data to law enforcement. Acceptable communications methods include wireless web services, Bluetooth 2.1, USB, email and compliant printouts.
  • The ELD provider that you choose must be certified by the FMCSA. This means that the vendor must register with the FMCSA and document that the solution meets both the technical and performance mandate for the ELD mandate.
  • If you’re using an AOBRD, then you’re covered by a limited “grandfather” clause, which extends two years after the effective date of the rule – and four years from the time the final ELD is published.
  • Truck drivers that are required to keep record of duty status (RODS), but fall under and Hours of Service exemption, such as short haul, are not required to use an ELD.
