It is official, April 1st, 2018 marked the hard enforcement date for the FMCSA’s ELD mandate. So this means you need to be prepared for your next inspection. If you are found without an Electronic Logging Device, you will be cited and most likely ticketed if you cannot prove exemption. To keep you on the road we have put together a list of the three best Electronic Logging Devices (ELDs) you need to know about.


3 Best Electronic Logging Devices (ELDs) You Need To Know About


Since the enactment of the Electronic Logging Devices Mandate (ELDs) back in December, there has been growing concern among the trucking community. This list will give you a better understanding of the options available to owner-operators and self-employed drivers alike.

1. EROAD: Ehubo

EROAD’s Electronic Logging Device (ELD) Ehubo is among the highest-quality devices offered on the market to date. The equipment is durable, and the software is simple for drivers who are unfamiliar with operating ELDs. Quick to install, software is easy to use, and the data capture is accurate. EROAD’s dependable, reliable, and user-friendly ELD Ehubo is tough to beat.

2. BigRoad: Dashlink

BigRoad is an affordable, simple, and user-friendly option for those who are looking for a product without all the bells and whistles. BigRoad’s easy-to-use log compliance software links their ELD device with your smartphone so you can see accurate, up-to-date information. No complicated hardware installation and their mobile application's primary goal is to provide simplicity with functionality.

3. Gorilla Safety

Gorilla Safety is a unique management system that offers features surpassing the basic Electronic Logging Devices we have seen previously. Their software not only ensures ELD mandate compliance but their features include safety and management tools. If you have used an electronic log before the ELD itself will feel reasonably straightforward, but they shine when it comes to their tracking ability of FMCSA and maintenance.

Stay Compliant Under The ELD Mandate

As a driver, you should already be aware that the deadline for complying the ELD mandate was April 1st. If you are without an Electronic Logging Device, you will be put out of service for 10 hours and then allowed to complete your run. However, you are required to install an ELD immediately before your next route. If you are later found without an ELD, you will receive an out-of-service violation under the ELD mandate.
