ELD Mandate: More Changes for Shippers Than Carriers

Carriers Will Choose Freight That Permits Profitability Without Risking Violations

“Much has been written regarding the anticipated impact of the forthcoming electronic logging device (ELD) mandate on truckload capacity. However, comparatively little has been said about the actions shippers can take to mitigate the potential negative effects of the mandate on their supply chains. As the implementation passed earlier this week, shippers should look beyond the perceived compliance rate of their existing carrier base and focus on removing other supply chain inefficiencies, thereby, naturally reducing ELD-related costs and risks. Taking a holistic, long-term approach—often with the help of an experienced 3PL provider—can address the challenges posed by the ELD mandate, and beyond.”

Daniel Broderick, AFN’s General Counsel, weighs the ELD mandate’s impact on shippers and carriers in his latest Global Trade Magazine piece.
