Got Questions? AOBRD to ELD Transition
Scott Sutarik from Geotab
Associate VP, Commercial Vehicle Solutions
Q. I’ve heard that ELDs can be used for more than creating RODS. What other kinds of data can I capture?
Q. We’re in the process of making the transition from AOBRDs to ELDs. I think we’re going to make it in time for the deadline, but, if we don’t, will we have a grace period on enforcement like fleets did in 2017-2018?
Q. I know training should be factored into ELD implementation, but is it really as big a deal as everyone seems to be making it?
Q. We've done a good job over the past couple of years with getting our tractors equipped with telematics and being in ELD compliance. I really need a way to keep tabs on my trailers to keep them up and running — can telematics help me with that?
Q. I've heard that the Department of Transportation is going to make a bunch of changes to the Hours of Service rules, is that true?
