What Are ELDs?

What Are ELDs?

ELD’s are Electronic Logging Devices, are DOT certified electronic hardware that connects to the vehicle’s engine to record driving hours. It includes a screen for the driver so they can monitor their current Hours of Service, as well as, the ability to print hour logs when required by DOT inspectors. This helps carrier managers track and record their driver’s Records of Duty Status (RODS).

Why Should I Integrate My ELD?

Integrating ELDs into a freight visibility solution can help to track, manage and share status updates with shipment managers, brokers and carriers. This helps in keeping up a high level of freight visibility to aid in supply chain management. Dispatchers can then use this data to help make their operations more efficient by being better prepared for late shipments, service or repair issues with their trucks, and more.

By integrating ELDs into the shipment tracking process you open up the ability to track all shipments simultaneously and get real-time live ETA’s into shippers and receivers. By pulling valuable info from the ELD, you can also automatically update your customers on driver’s progress, identify potential issues early, and manage your shipments more effectively.
