Since the ELD Mandate went into effect in 2017, drivers have gotten used to the electronic logging devices collecting data about their trips. ELD trucking data was one of the biggest concerns that truck drivers back then. No one wanted the US government to have more access to our business details.

As of now, when a law officer requests an Hours of Service (HOS) report from an ELD, the inspection report for the past 8 days is sent to the FMSCA. That’s it. There’s no continuous monitoring of trucks. The regulations require that the data be kept for 6 months.

Is Your ELD Trucking Data Up for Sale?

The short answer is yes, it may be. There are ELD companies out there that practice data mining.

What is Data Mining?

Data mining is the process of searching and analyzing a large batch of raw data in order to identify patterns and extract useful information.

Companies use data mining software to learn more about their customers. It can help them to develop more effective marketing strategies, increase sales, and decrease costs.

That doesn’t sound bad, does it? After all, analysis that might help us save money, use less fuel, and become more efficient at our jobs is a good thing, right?

Except – they may be using your data without your consent. Without notifying you. Without your knowledge.

How do you feel about that?

Someone else is making a profit off of you.

And you’re paying them for it.
