The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration announced March 13 that livestock haulers will get an additional 90 days to comply with the Electronic Logging Device mandate.
Haulers in other industries had to begin using the ELDs on Dec. 18, but agricultural haulers were given an extension through March 18.
After listening to commentary from those in the agriculture sector, Elaine Chao, secretary of the U.S. Department of Transportation and FMCSA Administrator Ray Martinez have given the agricultural haulers until June 16, 2018 to comply with the rule. Agriculture compliance to the rule would be difficult because the devices do not accurately account for the agricultural exemptions currently provided in the law.
