With the electronic logging device mandate quickly approaching, websites for ELD information and reviews have emerged to help carriers sift through the multitude of systems on the market and find the right fit for their operations.
Load board operator Truckstop.com and review site ELDratings.com are seeking to bring some clarity to the rapidly expanding ELD market.
As of late October, more than 150 self-certified ELD products were listed on the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s online registry
To help point its carrier customers toward reliable ELD options, Truckstop.com has partnered with several vendors to establish an online ELD marketplace at eld.truckstop.com.
That site is designed to serve as a “one-stop shop” for carriers looking for an ELD vendor, the company said.
“We wanted to remove the murkiness around the vast number of vendors that seemingly popped up overnight,” said Thayne Boren, general manager of Truckstop.com’s mobile division.
Truckstop.com has announced partnerships with several ELD vendors: Glostone Trucking Solutions (a Geotab reseller), GPS Insight, HOS Reporter, J.J. Keller & Associates, KeepTruckin and Omnitracs.
The load board operator said it also is in discussions with other vendors and plans to expand its list of vetted suppliers in the online marketplace.
