ELD Mandate 2017: Electronic Logging Device ELDs Trick-Or-Treat? EP 5

What’s an ELD? ELD Mandate 2017 is not looking like an ELD delay anytime soon. The FMCSA ELD Mandate has become the law and the updated DOT regulations are happening. So even though it was Halloween and Game 6 of The World Series, it was Tuesday Night and that meant another Live YouTube Stream for me – the Car Hauling Dispatcher. CLICK “SHOW MORE” FOR DESCRIPTION LINKS BELOW.

ELD devices, ELD solutions and ELD Mandate. Let’s talk about the Electronic Logging Device and ELDs. I started the show by looking at the “Car Hauler and Auto Carrier Trucking Forum” on TheTruckersReport.com [ visit: https://www.thetruckersreport.com/truckingindustryforum/forums/car-hauler-and-auto-carrier-trucking-forum.393/ ]

Is Car Hauling Risky? YES. We talked about New Carrier questions and the Risk of Car Hauling. The Cost of Car Hauling?? If you get into Car Hauling, you gotta really want to be a Car Hauler. Is it really worth it? Will the ELD Mandate 2017 affect your new Car Hauling Business?

I got asked, “What are the 5 best Load Boards?” My answer, “There are really only 3 you need.”

2) 1Dispatch: http://www.ratloads.com
3) CarsArrive Network http://www.carsarrive.com

Yes, the ELD Mandate is less than 50 days away. Talk about KeepTruckin price comparison was interesting – https://keeptruckin.com/eld-price-comparison – and ELDratings.com is worth reviewing – http://eldratings.com/reviews/ Price is very important – especially for a gadget you don’t want to use. That’s why I recommend Stoneridge EZ-ELD: https://www.electronic-loggingdevice.com/shop/ Great product at a good price. Check Amazon.com prices, too.

ELD exemptions is a common questions with the basic answer of 8 days out of 30 being the dividing line. Check it out: https://www.fmcsa.dot.gov/faq/what-exceptions-are-allowed-electronic-logging-device-rule
