Efficiently track driver’s hours on duty & more with the low-cost & time-tested ELDs
Is keeping a track of trucker’s record problematic? Do you want an effective and reliable solution to noting down hours of service on paper driver logbooks? After the compliance of ELD with FMCSA rules, your wait is over. Not only it is cost-effective but it also leads to saving for your fleet. Eld Devices has surveyed this new technology and has been in touch with it since its emergence. We will inform you with our findings.
Multipurpose ELDs have a lot more to offer
ELD stands for Electronic Logging Device that connects with your fleet’s—whether it comprises of trucks or any other vehicle—engine. On top of recording the distance traveled by the commercial driver, ELD also keeps a check on the time the engine has been operational, the exact location of the driver and the path he has passed through. ELD gives you the power to monitor the trucker’s route in real-time too. The ELD also notes down the driver’s speed, his slowing down and staying in idle position. Further regulations include the logging of break time by the trucker in the ELD. One of the advanced features include the vehicle diagnostics which is the reporting of faults in the truck by ELD before the problem gets worse. This data collected by the device can be analyzed to prevent such pitfalls and keep your fleet running smooth.
Minimum expenditure and maximum savings
Although the ELDs are affordable but if ventures find them difficult to afford, then their fleet can use mobile devices as ELDs. While researching the cost reduction done by EDL, we noticed that the time spent by drivers on keeping a paper log is saved. Moreover, there is no need to buy and store paper logbook, as the ELD provides drivers the benefit of portability. The Electronic Logging Devices also prevent paperwork abuse as nothing can be hidden. In case there is any traffic jam or the road is closed, ELD will suggest alternative pathways to the truck driver. This cuts down the fuel cost and further saves the time. Above all, you are notified upon exceeding the driving hour limit or nearing it.
To sum up, all the activity of your fleet is in your hands instead of being scattered in paper format. Think of EDL as a project management device that keeps you updated on the driver’s performance. The FMCSA compliant device will not require any specialist to function: ELDs are plug and play.
