What is the ELD mandate and how does it affect your local drayage rate from the Port of LA/LB to San Diego? In its simplest form, an electronic logging device — or ELD — is used to electronically record a driver’s Record of Duty Status , which replaces the paper logbook some drivers currently use to record their compliance with Hours of Service (HOS) requirements. It has been almost six months since this mandate went into effect December 18,2017 and US Domestic truck capacity has gotten tight forcing rates up nationwide but you may not have noticed that as much as how much your container cost you to get it from the Port of Los Angeles to San Diego. The reason why: Some drayage carriers want to stay within a 100 air-mile radius of their respective terminals; doing this means that an ELD is not required. These carriers are looking to focus exclusively on local drays to/from the ports, where before they were also handling longer haul shipments. ACS can help you avoid costly storage and ensure available capacity.
