The ELD Marketplace program materialized after Truckstop.com rigorously screened over a hundred ELD providers during their evaluation process. Their goal was to determine which ELD providers offer the best value to truckers.
Overview of Truckstop.com
Truckstop.com is the first ever freight-matching platform on the internet. It was founded in 1995 and has grown exponentially ever since. They now offer load optimization and planning, telematics, transportation management, rate benchmarking, and negotiation tools, among other services.
Their most advanced and recent software subscription empowers users with a real-time load board, and transportation partner qualification and search.
Preparing for the upcoming ELD mandate
On December 18, 2017, the ELD mandate will be implemented. That’s less than three months from now. Even with the limited time left, many trucking companies have yet to transition to ELDs.
Most of the companies that have not installed ELDs are waiting because they can’t find a reliable and truly compliant solution. The Truckstop’s ELD Marketplace program aims to help such companies.
Truckstop.com has rigorously screened several ELD providers and shortlisted only the best of the lot in the ELD Marketplace program. The listed ELD solutions are feature-rich, affordable, and FMCSA-registered, so carriers don’t have to waste hours screening for the right ELD solution.
Over 1,000,000 registered drivers and 60,000 carriers trust the Motive ELD solution because of its reliability, features, top-notch 24/7 customer support, and affordability.
More importantly, the Motive ELD is FMCSA-registered and designed in accordance with the FMCSA’s requirements and standards.
Paris Cole, the CEO of Truckstop.com, says about the ELD Marketplace:
“There are many ELD providers in the industry, but to participate in our marketplace we selected only those companies whose products and services met our stringent requirements. We believe that these companies will be able to help customers not only maintain compliance with the ELD mandate but also improve their efficiency and profitability over the long-term.”
Shoaib Makani, the CEO and Founder of Motive, also has great things to say about the ELD Marketplace program. In his own words:
“We’re thrilled to be part of the Truckstop.com ELD Marketplace, a program that shares our mission of simplifying the transition to ELDs for fleets of all sizes. The addition of Motive makes the easiest path to ELD mandate compliance readily accessible to Truckstop.com customers.”
With both companies collaborating to help the trucking industry with its growing needs, carriers are bound to have an easier time transitioning to ELDs.
Benefits of using Motive ELDs
The Motive ELD system comes with value-packed features. Fleets and owner-operators can enjoy several benefits after installing Motive ELDs. Some of the benefits are:
1. ELD mandate compliance
The Motive ELD is FMCSA-registered. It is included in the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s (FMCSA’s) list of registered ELDs.
Motive ELDs are designed in accordance with the FMCSA’s standards and requirements. Therefore, Motive users can rest assured that they are using a fully compliant device.
2. Reduced fuel expenses
Motive comes with an idle-time tracking feature that lets you identify drivers who idle vehicles for too long for too frequently.
By stopping vehicle-idling and reducing fuel wastage, fleets can save thousands of dollars every month. With an easy-to-use Dashboard for Fleets, managers can plan efficient and shorter routes, which can also reduce fuel consumption and wastage.
3. Vehicle maintenance
Motive ELDs actively monitor for fault codes and alert fleet managers when a fault code is detected.
With real-time notifications, you can stay on top of vehicle maintenance and ensure smooth operations. Moreover, fleet managers can also dive into historical fault code reports to identify recurring vehicle issues.
