TMS ONE ELD Pulled From FMCSA Approved List

Fleets using an electronic logging device (ELD) from TMS ONE have until April 1 to switch devices, after the product was delisted Jan. 31. 

The company’s product — ELD ONE — was struck from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s (FMCSA) list of approved devices, according to a notice. The notice specifically said it was due to “the company’s failure to meet the minimum requirements established” in a subsection of 49 C.F.R. Part 395. 

The code requires that an ELD that doesn’t have a printer “be designed so that the display may be reasonably viewed by an authorized safety official without entering the commercial motor vehicle.” 

After April 1, carriers still using ELD ONE will be treated as though they are operating without an ELD. So, FMCSA “strongly encourages” drivers to take action as soon as possible and switch to a compliant device. Drivers can be placed out of service for not having an ELD. 

Drivers who currently utilize that ELD should discontinue its use and start filling out paper logs or using logging software to record their service hours.
