ELD providers scrambling to update per restart rollback

Dec. 22, 2014

With the Hours of Service (HOS) restart rollback already in effect, the push is on for providers of electronic logging devices (ELDs) to update their offerings to incorporate the changed regulation.

For example, last week KeepTruckin and BigRoad told FleetOwner that they had updated their app-based ELD solutions to reflect the return to 34-hurt restart provisions that had been effect before the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) revised those rules last year.

Those two firms may have been in the vanguard, but others are following close on their heels.

For example, Zonar has announced that it will begin updating the ZLogs hours-of-service application on its Zonar 2020 mobile-communications tablet today. 

“The Zlogs update will be done over the air and should have minimal impact on operations,” said Fred Fakkema, vice president of compliance for Zonar. 

“Our company is very agile and responds to change quickly,” he stated. “We understand how important this is to our customers, and we have been preparing for this change. We will work with our customers and commercial vehicle enforcement agencies for a smooth transition.”

Zonar noted that customers with questions about their update may reach the company (toll-free) at 877.843.3847 or via email with the phrase “34-hour restart questions” placed the subject line.
