90-day waiver given livestock haulers concerning ELDs

published: November 22nd 2017
source: Department of Transportation

The Department of Transportation has granted livestock haulers a 90-day waiver from requiring them to install or use Electronic Logging Devices (ELDs) in their trucks.  Livestock groups had previously requested an exemption from the regulation because of the potential negative impact on animal well-being.

The new regulations, which go into effect December 18, would limit truckers to 11 hours of driving daily, after 10 consecutive hours off duty and restrict on-duty time to 14 consecutive hours, which also includes non-driving time.

Groups like the National Pork Producers Council, Livestock Marketing Association and the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association, all said they were pleased with the department’s announcement.
