A lot goes into building the perfect truck for your needs, but you can’t be sure you’re getting the most out of your fleet without the data to back it up. That means every year your drivers spend countless hours on data entry and dispatchers spend too much time second-guessing your drivers’ data. This can lead to waiting all day or longer for updates to your fleet management database, potentially introducing your business to unnecessary dangers, infractions and scheduling delays.
Penske Truck Leasing offers flexible solutions for onboard telematics systems (OTS) that can help capture the critical performance data you need for making reliable, informed decisions. With a variety of options, Penske can help you select an OTS solution that will benefit both your drivers and your business needs, saving you time, fuel and hassle.
Electronic logging devices (ELDs) can give drivers and fleet managers peace of mind by ensuring that record keeping for drivers and their vehicles is automated, up to date, and easily accessible. Your drivers can focus on their driving and your dispatchers on load assignments – not one another’s data. With OTS in place, reducing the time required for ad hoc data entry and administration, you can look forward to:
More than 3 million drivers on the road today will be affected by the new Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) ELD mandate. ELDs automatically record a driver's hours of service and duty status (or RODS), which the mandate now requires to be logged electronically.
Our experts provide valuable guidance to help you identify the right solution for your fleet, finance your purchase, coordinate installation, and oversee implementation. We guide you through the process of transition so that your fleet maintains its normal operations.Understanding the ELD Mandate
