TCA Urges Lawmakers, Regulators to Keep ELD Deadline


The Truckload Carriers Association’s (TCA) Vice President of Government Affairs, David Heller, was on Capitol Hill last week discussing ELDs and truck technology with Congressional staff and representatives. TCA supports the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s (FMCSA) December 18, 2017 Electronic Logging Device (ELD) implementation deadline.
The trucking industry must embrace new and emerging technologies that will improve safety on our nation’s highways. The use of an ELD will enable the industry to be transparent when complying with Hours of Service regulations and is essential to the continuation of efficient business operations. A two-year delay in implementation would further interrupt the actions of a progressive trucking industry that continually places safety at its forefront and stresses continued compliance with its daily operations.
TCA’s government affairs team will continue to push our position with lawmakers and regulators, encouraging Congress to adhere to the December deadline.
