Con-way Truckload has announced that 71% of its fleets is now using electronic logs (e-logs) with full integration fleet-wide expected to be completed by June. The truckload carrier began testing e-logs in February 2010.

The company began a fleet-wide rollout in November and currently 2,145 of its drivers are using the devices with 75 more transitioning to the system each week.

“We understand that the transition to e-logs presents some anxiety for drivers, based primarily on fear of the unknown and the difficulty of transitioning from a manual practice that has been used in the trucking industry for years,” said Bert Johnson, senior director of human resources & driver recruitment.

“By voluntarily moving our drivers to e-logs now, we can ensure that they are comfortable with the paperless system well ahead of FMCSA’s mandate,” he continued. “Additionally, we can begin to realize the safety benefits today vs. three years from now, which aligns with our core value of safety and mission to protect both our drivers and the motoring public.”

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration is expected to mandate the use of e-logs by 2014, Con-way Truckload noted.
