Driver Pay

We started ELD's in June our high milers dropped in miles hence the pay raise to keep their wages as close to static as possible, The interesting part was the bottom guys actually increased a couple of 100 miles a week because they had to sit in the seat and drive and quit wasting time. As soon as we tell customers and brokers our drivers are on ELD's their is no issue as we can pretty much tell them more accurately when the driver is going to arrive, no more trying to track down the driver for an ETA. The only issue with our drivers is/was waiting between loads as they now see the clock ticking and cannot stop it.

Has anyone got any great ideas or incentives on how to bring around some of the older slightly stubborn drivers to get on the ELD's? Doesn't seem to matter how nice you talk about ELD's to some of them they don't even want to entertain the thought.

truck05 you need to see what they make now (gross) and figure that out to 2500 miles per week for your good guys. If you are a good company and can keep them close in earnings you will not loose to many of them, most of our Super Truckers would not switch back to paper. We are starting to realize that the couple that still whine are probably not the ones we want in our fleet anyways.

We do not have a lot of brokers but gave them 4 months then no choice except to switch, but by then we had good data to show them how it works and really lost 1 of 6 out of it.
