In recent years, fleets have experienced unprecedented challenges that have impacted their operations. The majority of these challenges have revolved around drivers - from the shortage of skilled operators to driver wellness and increasing regulations like the ELD mandate. Fleets have been caught in the middle, trying to make smart business decisions. How can they balance maximizing their operational efficiency and responding to the ELD regulations while positively contributing to driver satisfaction and retention?
This is obviously easier said than done. It’s no secret that many drivers have negative opinions about being mandated to run an ELD. As a fleet, how are you supposed to overcome negativity towards ELDs and get your drivers on the path to compliance? Here are some tips to help get your fleet onboard with ELDs.

This past year saw a lot of changes in the trucking industry, particularly with the regulations. The ELD Mandate was finally published after being scheduled and rescheduled throughout 2015.
