NTTC backs mandatory electronic logging
May 2, 2011 2:46 PM
The National Tank Truck Carriers Inc (NTTC) announced that its membership supports mandatory electronic logging devices for documentary compliance with hours of service rules. The NTTC voted to support the electronic logging mandate at its summer membership meeting in July 2010, but withheld issuance of any public proclamation pending any related developments in the HOS rule-making.
“I’m extremely pleased to announce that the members of the NTTC have now embraced electronic logging devices,” said Steve Rush, NTTC chairman and chief executive officer of New Jersey-based Carbon Express. “Personally, as a former professional driver myself, I’ve been a strong proponent of in-cab technology for years. Our NTTC membership recognizes that ELDs will allow all carriers to equally police themselves, which can only lead to safer, better operations across the board. ELD technology will also greatly contribute to improved working conditions for our professional drivers, which will be a large factor as capacity tightens and driver recruiting grows more challenging.”
