With less than two weeks left until the electronic logging device rule kicks in, CarrierLists has published its latest survey of small fleets, finding that compliance has increased to 75%.

For the past few weeks, ELD compliance rates held steady around 70% but with the deadline looming on Dec. 18, 75% of the 361 fleets CarrierLists talked to reported being compliant. Each of the small fleets surveyed are running between 5 and 100 trucks.

The majority of small fleets seem to have procrastinated in complying with the ELD mandate and various groups have challenged the rule in recent weeks, hoping to delay compliance to a later date or remove it altogether.

A survey from Nov. 3 by CarrierLists, showed that only 40% of fleets running between 5 and 100 trucks were compliant or had even started the process of installing ELDs. Compliance rates were as low as 23% in early October.

Another interesting data point was that compliance in the two states that rank near the top of registered trucking companies, Texas and California, were in the bottom third of states when it comes to fleet ELD compliance.

    FIND IT HARD FOR A ONE MAN TRUCKING COMPANY TO AFFORD ELOG WITH COST OF INSURANCE, FUEL, REPAIRS, TOLLS, TAXES, AND EVERY THING ELSE EVEN RATES GETTING CHEAPER IF THEY WONT US TO HAVE THIS ADDED TO OUR COST I THINK THEY NEED TO PAY FOR IT.

    Sounds like propaganda to me, the last article last week said they weren't eld compliant, so I image someone told them to write a new article to change the story so carriers will feel more pressure to comply instead of having their courage bolstered to not comply and start a mutiny. I guess they expect us to believe that in 7 days 40 percent of the carriers got compliant.

    Kenco group group is a large truck broker who did the survey? We all know how honest truck brokers our. From drivers I have talked to the the main topic is how to cheat the Eld. Then with all the exemptions granted for big money. Where the hell does Saftey come to play into this. This is blood sucking people trying to make as much money as they can off of drivers back just like has been going on since the beginning trucking. Discussing is most ceos involed in trucking. All could not make a pimple on the ass of a driver but behind their desk and Their money power they kill and destroy lives.
