The Latest in Transportation
April 1st Is Closing In!
After April 1, carriers operating without an Electronic Logging Device (ELD) will be placed out of service for ten hours. After ten hours, drivers and carriers will be allowed to travel to their next scheduled stop, but cannot be dispatched again without an ELD. If the driver does start another trip without first installing an ELD, the driver and carrier will be placed out of service for another ten hour period.

While carriers may be cited for a variety of ELD-related violations, the only out-of-service violation will be the failure to have a device.

Learning to Embrace Roadside Inspections
The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance’s (CVSA) International Roadcheck has set its annual International Roadcheck dates for June 5-7, 2018. This year’s 72-hour inspection blitz will target hours of service (HOS) compliance due to the recent implementation of the electronic logging device mandate. Some carriers or drivers with high ISS (Inspection Selection System) scores are likely to shy away from roadchecks, but enduring and passing more inspections is the only way to lower these scores.
