FMCSA: Ag haulers get 90-day delay on ELD use

Truckers hauling livestock and other agriculture products will have 90 extra days to comply with the DOT’s electronic logging device mandate, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration announced Monday.

FMCSA will soon publish a public notice in the Federal Register announcing the compliance extension, as well as a notice with fresh guidance for livestock haulers relative to both the ELD mandate and hours of service, said Joe Delorenzo, FMCSA’s director of compliance and enforcement, in a media briefing held Monday afternoon.

Delorenzo said the definition of a livestock hauler will lean on a definition established in the 1980s by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, which defines livestock as ” cattle, elk, reindeer, bison, horses, deer, sheep, goats, swine, poultry, fish used for food and other animals designated that are part of a foundation herd or offspring. The waiver’s scope will be broader than that and extend to ag haulers who don’t haul livestock.

A coalition of groups representing livestock haulers petitioned the agency in late October to request a compliance extension. 30 request that livestock haulers will not be prepared to meet the Dec. Its concerns stem from “An incompatibility” between federal hours regs and livestock’ operations – a concern noted by Delorenzo in Monday’s briefing.
