The American Transportation Research Institute has launched an initiative to collect and warehouse anonymized electronic logging device data to help the industry address other industry problems.
J.J. Keller & Associates has added the SmartAssign enhancement to its Encompass electronic logging system to help fleets manage unassigned driving events.
When it comes to managing electronic logging devices in the back office, “Obviously, the big thing is to monitor for violations,” according to Annette Sandberg, CEO of TransSafe Consulting and a former administrator of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration.
With the electronic logging device mandate top of mind this year, other potential uses of in-cab telematics may be overlooked, indicates a survey by ELD and telematics provider Teletrac Navman, even as many fleets are expanding in a booming freight environment.
Truckers are feeling the stress from a lack of available truck parking, in part due to a lack of flexibility in hours of service since the ELD mandate was implemented, according to a Trucker Path report.
