Electronic logbooks

In April 2021, all truckers in the US were required to purchase electronic logging devices, or ELDs, for their drivers. That was the decision of the American authorities as reported on the https://freight-broker-training.us/.

According to experts, they will have a significant impact on the development of the logistics system in the future.

The first goal with which these devices are introduced is to equalize the labor system for all truck drivers, limiting their work time to 50 hours a week, with two days off. In addition, according to the authors of the idea, these devices can make roads much safer, because they notify the driver that he needs a rest.

And, of course, the main reason is that in the process of using paper logbooks, as drivers did before, there were always those who wanted to deceive the system a little. With the introduction of ELD, this will no longer be possible.
