The ELD mandate that went into full effect in December of 2019, while a thorn in some fleets’ sides, was timed fortuitously. When the pandemic hit the U.S. in March, essential fleets ran trucks longer and harder than ever to deliver goods to where they were needed most, and those fleets had more insight into their equipment operations because of ELD devices that also offer advanced telematics solutions.
So how did fleets leverage these solutions in new ways when they were needed?
That’s the question I put to Jonathan Bates, executive vice president at MiX Telematics, who talked about overall 2020 telematics trends and touched on the other telematics solutions that fleets can leverage as the calendar flips to 2021. Watch the video above for all of the insight.
