Electronic Logging Device Mandate for Ag Haulers Extended Another 90-Days

Electronic Logging Device Mandate for Ag Haulers Extended Another 90-Days

3/13/2018 2:28:00 PM/Categories: Popular Posts, General News, Today's Top 5, Livestock, Grains

WASHINGTON (March 13, 2018) - National Cattlemen’s Beef Association President Kevin Kester today issued the following statement regarding the U.S. Department of Transportation's announcement that the Electronic Logging Device (ELD) mandate will be delayed another 90 days for agricultural haulers:

"This is obviously good news for America's cattle haulers and producers, and it will provide FMCSA (the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration) more time to educate our livestock haulers on the ELDs while industry works on solutions to the current Hours of Service rules that simply do not work for those hauling live animals.

"We would like to thank Transportation Secretary Elaine L. Chao and FMCSA Administrator Ray Martinez for listening to our concerns and working with us to find a permanent, workable solution."

The mandate was to have taken effect on Sunday, March 18, 2018.
