Cummins subsidiary company Zed Connect has opened its headquarters in Calabasas, Calif., housing the company’s executive staff, research and development, engineering, design, product management, accounting and marketing.
Zed Connect was launched by Cummins in June aimed at taking an innovative approach to help trucking fleets, drivers and other industry partners to overcome challenges and improve the bottom line while working across all makes and models.
Zed Connects first product offering was the plug-and-play Zed ELD. A smartphone-based solution for small and mid-sized fleets, it was designed to help meet federal electronic logging device requirements while minimizing financial impact.
Following that initial ELD launch in June 2017, the company debuted an OBDII 16-pin adapter for the ELDs developed specifically for smaller commercial vehicles and vocational work trucks requiring compliance to the FMCSA ELD mandate.
“Since our inception less than a year ago, our company has grown substantially,” said Skip Kinford, Zed Connect CEO. “The development of our ELD solutions marks the first of many new products and technologies that will launch in 2018 and beyond. Accordingly, we need proper facilities that will accommodate our team, as well as staff that we’ll add in the months ahead.”
