With this year’s Electronic Logging Devices (ELD) mandate looming ahead, it’s important for fleets to understand the impact it has on their business and strategically plan how to implement the new standards. Beyond choosing eligible devices and software to track, manage and share data, consider how those devices will be secured inside a vehicle. The right in-vehicle docking and mounting solution for devices not only protects the fleet’s investment in equipment, but also ensures a safe and comfortable mobile office for drivers – reducing the risk of distraction and increasing productivity.
While initially the ELD mandate can be perceived as overwhelming and confusing, this regulation should be looked at as an opportunity to not only meet, but exceed its expectations. Fleets should be thinking broader in order to set up their in-vehicle strategy for success, and consider their Total Mobility Solution. The right strategy is critical to not only save time and money now, but maximize the company’s return on investment long term.
The following guide is designed to offer considerations and educate you on implementing an in-vehicle strategy that fits your fleets’ needs. The more educated you are, the better equipped you are to clearly communicate your project requirements, goals and specifications with your team.
