Direction January/February 2018 - 44

JANUARY | FEBRUARY 2018

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety
Administration (FMCSA) has decided
to allow all motor carriers and
drivers-not just the United Parcel
Service-to use two new temporary
exemptions from the electronic
logging devices (ELD) rule. The
exemptions will be granted for a fiveyear period-Oct. 20, 2017, through
Oct. 20, 2022-barring any repeals
from the FMCSA during that time.
The first exemption will temporarily allow the usage of portable
"driver-based" ELDs to record engine
data "only when the driver is in a
CMV and the engine is powered." In
other words, drivers who use smartphone- or tablet-based ELDs will be

able to indicate a change of duty status
when they are not in their truck.
The second exemption will temporarily permit carriers to enable

"yard-move mode" on their ELDs.
That means a driver is not required to
re-input the truck's yard-move status
every time the vehicle shuts off. n

I'm proud to announce the kick off of our 40th year serving the
relocation industry. While I pause to reflect on our company's
many accomplishments since 1978, I'm compelled to focus more
on the opportunities on our horizon. We are more empowered than
ever to remain deserving of our place as an industry leader, and in
our determination to continue to grow and innovate. That resolve
is a direct reflection of our loyal customer base, who inspire us by
example to be the best. None of this would be possible without
your support. We share this 40th Anniversary year with you!

Tim Hughes, CEO
