A. ELDs can automate IFTA fuel tax reporting. ELDs in combination with advanced Open Platform telematics capabilities provide remote engine monitoring, fuel usage monitoring, MPG, receipt and invoice scanning at the point of delivery, and the ability to geofence trucks and track arrival and departure dates and times.

Fleets can see considerable cost savings. For example, FMCSA cited a large private fleet that saved $18,000 per year after moving to ELDs. Fleets can more closely monitor drivers' hours, enabling better planning and routing decisions to maximize productivity. ELDs can also help prevent driver fatigue and protect drivers from employers violating HOS rules.
