No. 7, ELD waivers

Dec. 26, 2018
ELD waivers was a key issue in 2018.

Understanding how electronic logging devices (ELDs) work is only half the battle, albeit a significant one.

Fleets and their drivers also need to know if the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration's latest hours-of-service (HOS) regulations, and the newest ELD technology for monitoring HOS, even applies to them, which is a whole other can of worms.

No wonder reader interest in the topic was off the charts this year.

Stories about ELD waivers, including fuel hauler exemptions, federal rest break exceptions and hazmat carrier preemptions, were among the most-visited this year by Bulk Transporter's highly informed audience. Here are a few that drove the most traffic in 2018:
