Well we're less than a year away from having to transition to ELDs as mandated. Having spoken to many drivers in the past, I know there has been a lot of push back on this change. Driver's like to do their logs the way they've been doing their logs for many years... Paper Log Books.
The switch to ELD(Electronic Logging Device) doesn't have to be a painful experience. If you currently use a smart phone or tablet then there are some pretty great solutions for you that are fully compliant with the ELD mandate.
Here are a couple winners that we've tried:
Logistek is a third party dispatch service with a goal of maximizing our customers revenue. We offer 24/7 online and over the phone support for owners and drivers. We dispatch in 48 states, and work with carriers of all kinds. We specialize in Dry Van dispatch, but also offer dispatching for Reefers, Conestogas, Flatbeds, and Straight Trucks.
We pride ourselves on customer satisfaction and do not settle for low dollar per mile freight. Many services out there offer $2 per mile, but we guarantee a minimum gross per week. For dry van, reefer, and flatbeds we offer a $5,000 weekly gross guarantee for drivers who run a full legal week. We also can handle all invoicing/factoring submissions and collections.
