OKLAHOMA CITY (Sept. 30, 2016) — US Fleet Tracking, a leading developer of live GPS vehicle and asset tracking, is partnering with Gorilla Safety to offer a fully-integrated solution that teams market-leading live GPS tracking and electronic logging. Now, in one platform, customers can satisfy the upcoming Electronic Logging Device (ELD) mandate, through Gorilla Safety’s technology, while bringing US Fleet Tracking’s industry-leading software to clients’ fingertips in a seamless platform.
“With the ELD mandate deadline fast approaching, meeting the needs of our clients impacted by the changing regulations takes on heightened meaning,” says Jim Carman, US Fleet Tracking national sales director. “US Fleet Tracking has partnered with the industry’s leading, fully Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) -compliant solution for electronic logging.”
US Fleet Tracking’s live GPS technology includes live traffic, weather radar, historical playback, alerts, reports and a host of other features. The integration with Gorilla Safety to satisfy the upcoming ELD mandate is a key addition to the company’s suite of offerings.
“Clients experience total integration, with our cutting-edge live GPS tracking system and ELD information, thus satisfying regulatory requirements while bringing more options to our customers,” says Carman.
By early 2017, the FMCSA will require an estimated 3 million commercial drivers to begin moving away from paper logbooks in favor of ELD for mileage, driver hours, vehicle movement and location information. The FMCSA has mandated December 2017 as the start date for enforcement of compliant ELDs in all qualifying vehicles.
“It’s an exciting partnership for both companies,” says Carman. “US Fleet Tracking works with Gorilla Safety to aid fleet owners in meeting and exceeding their fleet management and safety needs through one fully integrated platform.”
