Continental Commercial Vehicles & Aftermarket offers its VDO RoadLog electronic logging device. VDO RoadLog ELD is available with no monthly fees and no contracts and a single installation of RoadLog Fleet Software can be expanded to handle an unlimited number of drivers. Options include the VDO RoadLog Driver Key, a proprietary USB drive for data transfer and VDO RoadLog Plus with wireless communication capability. VDO RoadLog Fleet Management Software converts driver log data into an FMCSA compliant operations record. RoadLog ELD also features an integrated printer.
J.J. Keller’s E-Log System is a flexible electronic logging solution that is compatible with any mobile device, including the J.J. Keller Compliance Tablet, and iPad, iPhone and Android-compatible devices. Fleets can also use a combination of driver or company-provided devices with the system. The E-Log solution features bundled options in hardware and data plans at one monthly price.
XRS e-logs automatically update on-duty and driving status based on vehicle motion, annotate time, location, and other notes within driver duty status changes, and provide drivers with the ability to switch duty status between sleeper berth, on-duty, driving, and off-duty using a graphical interface. The system’s driver log editor allows for updating missing or inaccurate data.
While focused on choosing a provider and system for ELD implementation, PeopleNet advises that fleets should be mindful that creating an implementation plan is the key to successful adoption and use, and
ultimately full compliance. A detailed implementation plan that includes leadership’s vision for the project, the company says, is essential for success in moving through a major change from manual to electronic logs.
PeopleNet also recommends that fleets set the stage by making the ELD law the fleet’s law.
“Standing behind the new ELD law demonstrates that your organization truly wants to be part of the solution that will help reduce crashes, injuries and fatalities involving large trucks,” the company writes in a “Blue paper” called Planning a Successful Electronic Logging Device (ELD) Implementation. “Holding drivers responsible for their part keeps them from being part of the problem and ensures that your fleet is adhering to the highest safety standards.”
