With ELD still being somewhat new to the trucking industry, it comes as no surprise that some drivers have had trouble getting familiar with this technology. This can quickly result in a pile-up of logbook corrections and unassigned driving time that must be addressed, creating headaches for both the back-office and the driver. The good news is most of these issues can be fixed with the right policies and a little training.
Many fleet owners are in the same position, the setup they have been using for years is not going to be legal after the end of next year and are looking at what their options are. Making the change from older style AOBRD to the new ELD may seem like a leap, but most people find it is more of a step if you know what the changes mean for your drivers.
The differences between the systems are fewer than you might imagine and it really is the details that can cause most of your pains.
