FMCSA denies ELD exemption to small trucking companies â€“ again
A group representing trucking and other companies with 50 employees or less has been denied an exemption from the federal electronic logging device (ELD) mandate.
The exemption, filed by the Small Business in Transportation Coalition (SBTC), received nearly 2,000 comments after it was posted in June 2018, with the vast majority â€“ roughly 95 percent â€“ in favor of the exemption.
However, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) asserted that SBTCâ€™s application failed to provide evidence that safety would not be compromised under the exemption.
