US Automated Logistics (USAL) is testing a new Electronic Logging Device from Car Delivery Network.

 

The device tracks truck and driver performance, GPS, and hours of service data, and transmits it to CDN’s cloud servers. This was created to support automotive carriers in the US, to comply with FMCSA regulations which will soon be a legal necessity.

Mike Thorby, CDN Co-Founder and CTO, said: “With the introduction of our new ELD, we can eliminate more paper in the truck. Traditionally, similar systems have been implemented as standalone solutions that are not truly integrated into the operations of the carrier’s Transport Management System.

“This new technology provides an opportunity to change the way truck and driver data are used, improving efficiency while complying with the new regulations. We believe there is huge value in connecting the truck, the driver, and the freight information, such as condition reports together, in real time, delivering increased visibility and control.”

The CDN HOS application will be entirely integrated and feature a whole host of apps. The ELD will also support drivers and help the carrier’s despatch office manage hours and fleet operations efficiently.

CDN will showcase the ELD app at AHAA’s conference in November, and the entire performance suite will be available by the end of the year.
