FMCSA Provides ELD Data Transfer Guide To Keep In Your Truck
Washington D.C. – The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) is providing truckers and motor carriers with a handy ELD data transfer guide.
The guide, which is designed for truckers to affix on their visor or stow in your truck, gives tips on how to properly transfer ELD data for safety professionals. It also provides troubleshooting tips on some of the most common problems truckers are encountering.
FMCSA, upon releasing the guide, explained its purpose by saying:
To assist the motor carrier industry with adopting ELDs, FMCSA has developed a new resource for drivers. Designed to be printed and stored under the visor of a CMV, this guide gives the driver a high-level overview of the various data transfer processes and includes some tips on troubleshooting common questions that could arise during data transfer.
This guide is not meant to replace driver training on using ELDs. All motor carriers must ensure that drivers and administrative staff are educated on how to access the various functions in the ELDs with which their vehicles are equipped.
