Former Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration Association Administrator Annette Sandberg has verified that the Telogis Electronic Logging Device will meet federally mandated requirements, Telogis announced.
The Telogis ELD has already been listed on the FMCSA’s list of ELDs meeting the government specifications. But because companies self-certify to gain entry onto the FMCSA list, the company wanted a third party to verify that its solution met all requirements.
“The FMCSA’s ELD self-certification process is important, but it’s not enough; our customers want to be sure providers have taken the necessary steps to ensure that they have a fully certified solution for the ELD deadline,” said Erin Cave, vice president of product management for Telogis, a Verizon Company. “Annette Sandberg delivered unparalleled expertise and a comprehensive verification process, enabling our customers to have total confidence in the integrity of our solution.”
Sandberg was the FMCSA administrator from 2003 to 2006 and is currently the CEO of TransSafe Consulting, where she offers her knowledge of the industry to trucking companies seeking counsel on ELD issues and other trucking industry topics.
“Earning a spot on the list of certified ELD providers ahead of the deadline is very important to customers and providers,” said Sandberg. “The mandated requirements can be quite complicated, and companies that have to meet this mandate need to know that their provider understands the critical nature of this mandate. After working with Telogis and conducting a comprehensive review of its ELD solution, I am confident that it meets every technical requirement.”
The Telogis Compliance HOS application allows customers to record, transmit and store all HOS information according to the functional requirements as detailed in the official ELD mandate. Additional features include over-the-air updates, support for iOS and Android, multiple rulesets and exemptions – including the 150-air-mile non-CDL short-haul exemption – and customizable driver vehicle inspection reports.
