Golden State Express is ELD
Compliant with Matrack
Continental Carriers is a logistic company based in Fresno, California. It is a medium-sized trucking company, dealing with clients all over the country. Its Fleet Manager, Mr. Prem Sodhi had decided to engage assistance from Matrack Incorporations for the electronic Logging Device solution.
Challenges faced before opting for Matrack’s ELD:
The fleet manager for Golden State Express, JT, wanted to ensure that his vehicles and drivers are safe and compliant with prevalent laws while traveling to various cities, counties, and even states. His most important requirement from an ELD was to be able to track the location of his vehicles, as well as follow all the rules applicable under FMCSA and DoT. JT was looking for an ELD solution to help him overcome the following challenges:
The drivers at Golden State Express were required to travel a distance of over 3000 miles, three times a week. This required a GPS system that was dependable and showed accurate route so that the drivers could reach their destination without any delay as Golden State Express mostly caters to transportation of produce. While he was thinking about a better GPS system, he also looked for one that could help him keep a track of his vehicles in real time, so that if any of the vehicle or driver needed any kind of help, it could be readily provided.
As FMCSA has introduced the ELD Mandate, JT also wanted a device that would be compliant with the mandate rules. He wanted to make a shift from his ABORDs to ELD compliant GPS device. A comprehensive ELD solution that automatically recorded Hours of Service, and helped in avoidance of unnecessary fines due to violations, while also recording real time location of the vehicles was what Golden State Express needed.
A lot of time from any driver’s permitted hours of driving for a particular day is often spent waiting at loading and unloading docks, thereby cutting short the allowed number of hours a driver can actually drive. In such scenarios, it is important that idle or wait time is accurately recorded so that the driver can work properly for the rest of the hours. A correct account of number of driving hours and mileage help in accurate calculation of quarterly taxes, which also was challenging for JT as he could not depend on the data manually recorded by the drivers.
While looking for a comprehensive solution for all the fleet management issues as well as better operational efficiency, JT could not let the budget go overboard. He wanted a solution that was custom built for his needs, and value for money. He did not want a solution whose price would be more than the benefits to his trucking business.
