Manifest number on ELD



ELD’s have an option to mention the manifest or the shipping document number in the Record of Duty status. As per FMCSA, any document which directs towards the movement of any passengers or cargo must be mentioned in the driver’s electronic logs. Examples of such documents are manifests, invoices, trip reports, order numbers etc.

If a driver is going on more than one trip on same calendar day, then shipping document number or manifest number for each trip should be mentioned in the “Remarks” or the “Comment” section of their record of duty status.
