ELD & Telematics
The ELD (Electronic Logging Device) was created to replace paper log books which have been used for decades by truck drivers to track their RODS (Records of Duty Status) for reporting to FMCSA (Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration) as required by law.
There are several reasons for the switch to the ELD, the most prominent being the tamper proof technology that prevents the abuse of using paper logs to adjust driving hours and falsifying records to appear legally in compliance with regulations, an all too common practice back in the day.
When the ELD is used in conjunction with Telematics which automatically collect and report on truck data such as vehicle location, speed, fuel consumption, driving habits, hard acceleration, harsh braking, and truck diagnostics, fleet management personnel are able to recognize and correct any inefficiencies and become far more productive, profitable, and compliant, reducing violations and penalties while keeping sleepy drivers off the highways. Safer roads for all, including the motoring public.
Simplified Tracking & Compliance
The Device tracks every truck in the fleet and reports to management in real time so you always know where every driver is located.
Makes for more efficient routing and dispatching to line up next loads in closer proximity to unloading for greater utilization of drivers and equipment and the ability to generate greater revenue.
Helps prevent loss of a stolen truck by actively tracking its whereabouts so you can communicate with authorities to recover the vehicle.
ELDs Level the Playing Field
With all drivers maintaining compliance, competition is fairer. Shippers and receivers understand that technology rules in transportation now.
Drivers will be less likely to experience abuse from unruly people when loading/unloading. Shippers and receivers are beginning to understand that late pickups and deliveries are the nature of the business now.
We can thank the ELD and Telematics for that.
