US carrier numbers increase despite ELD R


esearch from DAT Solutions has found that the number of active carriers in the US commercial motor vehicle sector has grown


at a faster rate following the implementation of the Electronic Logging Device (ELD) mandate. Four months before the implementation of the


ELD requirements, which came into effect on December 18, 2017, DAT surveyed its users to learn how they planned to deal with the new regulation. The majority of respondents were owner-


operators and small carriers and, according to DAT, 30 percent of them said they would leave the industry rather than use an ELD. While some may have followed through on the


threat, DAT said that the number of active carriers has actually grown. DAT attributes this to favourable market


conditions in late December 2017 and early January 2018. With rates soaring to the highest levels DAT has ever recorded, the analyst added

6x2 prime movers. Each XF 480 FTP will come


equipped with an ESTEPE pusher axle to increase its loading capacity. DAF said the unit is suited for the movement of heavy aerospace cargoes such as complete engines.

that many company drivers and owner-operators decided to go independent and start their own carrier businesses. Now, one year on from the ELD mandate, DAT’s


research suggests that carriers seem to have adjusted and demand-capacity measures are returning to more normal levels. If prices follow suit, it is likely that the pace of new carriers entering the marketplace will slow, explained DAT. “Some of those who originally threatened to


quit may decide to leave the industry later than they originally thought,” said DAT.
