Third-party logistics provider C.H. Robinson has entered into an agreement with telematics company Transflo to supply an electronic logging and telematics solution for its carrier network.
C.H. Robinson created a new program to deploy the Transflo ELD T7 throughout its carrier base to ensure that it is compliant with the upcoming ELD mandate. The program will address the needs of more than 70,000 contract carriers for C.H. Robinson.
The new Transflo ELD program for C.H. Robinson begins this month and helps smaller carriers lean on the 3PL for help in complying with the mandate in the next four months.
“We are making it easy for carriers to purchase a new-generation ELD solution,” said Bruce Johnson, director of carrier solutions at C.H. Robinson. “Carriers who work with C.H. Robinson are familiar with the Transflo name, and they’ll achieve a deeper mobile and electronic logging integration. It’s an opportunity we hope contract carriers will take advantage of.”
Transflo Telematics’ electronic logging and fleet management solution addresses ELD and hours of service requirements as well as engine diagnostics and near real-time truck tracking. The solution is embedded in Transflo’s mobile application, allowing drivers to manage everything they need from a single place.
“The C.H Robinson team has been both forward-thinking and proactive in addressing electronic logging compliance,” said Frank Adelman, Transflo president and CEO. “Together, we’re accelerating compliance, and this announcement represents an important shift in how the market is deploying ELD units.”
