TRALA earns 90-day ELD waiver

The Truck Renting and Leasing Association (TRALA) announced Tuesday the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has granted the 90-day waiver it requested regarding the electronic logging device (ELD) mandate for short-term rental trucks (defined as 30 days or less).

TRALA says this decision will give all TRALA members until March 18, 2018 to take the necessary steps to get their trucks in compliance with the mandate, as well as work with their customers to make the transition to ELDs as seamless as possible.

TRALA says the announcement is “welcome news to truck rental companies that have been spending the past few months trying to put together strategies and plans to address the fact that FMCSA only granted part of TRALA’s original request for a five-year exemption for short-term rental trucks.”
