ABF & ELD Update

90 Day Delay in Implementation of the Electronic Log Device rule:

The ELD rule is scheduled to go into effect on December 18, 2017, so the 90 day delay will exempt livestock haulers until mid March 2018. ABF has been involved with a coalition of livestock groups in an effort to obtain a delay and limited exemption from the ELD rule as well as Hours of Service requirements for livestock/bee haulers. We were hoping that the delay in implementation of this rule would be at least one year, but 90 days is better than no delay. See below for the joint letter from the ABF and AHPA was sent late last week to the Department of Transportation and Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration detailing our concerns about ELD and HOS issues relating to the transportation of bees.
