Omnitracs LLC, provider of fleet management solutions to transportation and logistics companies, has released a new video detailing what fleets need to know about the upcoming Electronic Logging Device (ELD) mandate, which is expected to be published in September 2015. The video dissects each of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FSMCA) mandate goals, to help fleets better understand the ruling’s objectives and how it will impact business operations. Be sure to watch the video above.
“From technical specifications to what constitutes a compliant device and how such devices work, there are still a lot of questions swirling around in regards to the anticipated ELD mandate. At Omnitracs, we have a long history of working with the FSMCA and a deep understanding of the rulemaking process, which we’ve leveraged for this video in order to help the industry best prepare for what’s ahead,” said Tom Cuthbertson, vice president of regulatory compliance at Omnitracs. “With the FSMCA sharing its top goals for the regulation, we now have a sense of what to anticipate. In just over three short minutes, this video examines each goal to define critical aspects—such as what SNPRM is and what the transmission methods are to send information to authorized officials.”
The video goes through each of the FSMCA’s seven top goals, which are:
- Transmission to authorized enforcement officials
- Supplemental Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (SNPRM)
- Driver harassment and privacy consideration
- Tamper resistance
- Technology evolution capability
