The ELD mandate: your fleet checklist
- There is a more seamless transition and shorter learning curve: By bundling these two functions together, the transition to the new ELD system will be much faster. Both administrators and drivers will already know the interface and how it works, so implementation is just a matter of activating additional functions.
- There is enormous potential for cost savings: It is entirely possible the hardware and software systems you already have installed are already capable of ELD reporting as well, saving the fleet on the time and costs of implementing yet another system. It can also be more cost-effective to have a single account to pay each month, with the possibility of discounts for using multiple systems from the same provider.
- It can buy your fleet time for full compliance. Even if you aren’t ready to implement a full ELD system just yet, you may be able to bundle telematics with your AOBRD system, which can remain in place until the December 2019 ELD compliance deadline.
