Talking Logistics | Electronic Logging Devices – Separating Hype from Reality

Ben Cubitt, SVP Consulting and Engineering, Transplace

While created to improve safety within the transportation industry, the FMCSA’s Electronic Logging Device (ELD) Mandate has left both shippers and carriers with many questions about how the industry is going to react to the full transition to these devices, such as: how will this impact driver productivity; will drivers leave the industry as a result; how will this impact industry capacity moving forward?

Transplace Senior Vice President, Engineering & Strategic Carrier Management Ben Cubitt recently spoke with Talking Logistics’Adrian Gonzalez about the ELD Mandate and shared highlights from Transplace’s survey of over 2,000 carriers in order to gain insight into the implementation preparedness of transportation carriers and the expected industry impact of the widespread use of these devices.
