The number of carriers using electronic logging devices on all of their trucks jumped to 35 percent in February from 25 percent in May of last year, according to a new study from Transport Capital Partners.

Two-thirds of those surveyed said they are testing or utilizing electronic logging devices in their trucks, and 10 percent said they were considering but have not started using the devices.

For larger carriers with $25 million or more in annual revenue, 43 percent said they were using electronic logging, while 71 percent of smaller carriers say they were not utilizing the devices.

TCP said it attributes the higher rate of use in larger carriers to their having the financial resources to make the change while smaller carriers are postponing the expense until the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration's expected electronic onboard recorder mandate goes into effect.
