Omnitracs announced it has completed testing on an electronic logging device (ELD) solution that it says meets the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s (FMCSA) ELD mandate requirements.
Omnitracs noted it offers an application package for its telematics devices that tracks hours of service (HOS), a key component of the mandate. Following what it called “a long and rigorous testing process,” Omnitracs said its Intelligent Vehicle Gateway is registered with the FMCSA on its self-certification list and ensures that fleet customers with current Omnitracs solutions will be compliant with the ELD mandate prior to the Dec. 18 deadline.
“Although many of our customers have been using AOBRDs for years, the mandate means that fleets must take a closer look at their practices to ensure compliance,” said David Vice, Omnitracs CSO. “Early on, we committed the resources necessary to develop and test a road-ready solution. We take our position as a leader and innovator in the fleet management industry very seriously and are committed to maintaining a standard of excellence with our product offerings and customer service initiatives.”
As additional preparation for the ELD mandate, Omnitracs explained it enhanced its system architecture and security measures to handle the anticipated increase in data traffic.
