How Will the ELD (Electronic Logging Device) Mandate Affect Your Fleet?

Posted by Havis on Jul 11, 2017 8:07:00 AM

Reduce your fleet's distraction and increase productivity with quality docking and mounting solutions.

With this year’s electronic logging devices mandate looming, it’s important for fleets to understand how it will affect them, and how to implement the new standards.

This goes beyond choosing eligible devices and software to track, manage and share data. Fleets also need to consider how to secure those devices inside a vehicle.

Good in-vehicle docking and mounting solutions for devices protect the fleet’s investment in equipment, ensure driver safety and comfort, reduce distraction and increase productivity.

The ELD mandate might seem confusing and the December 18 deadline might be overwhelming. But try to think of it as an opportunity to do better, through a total mobility solution.

The vehicles your employees use on the job are more than just modes of transportation. When your workers get behind the wheel, they’re sitting down in a mobile office complete with data, video, voice and warning systems.
