JBD LLC Benefits With
Challenges faced by JBD LLC before opting for Matrack’s ELD:
As the company caters to clients all over the country, the drivers are required to travel long distances for several days in a week. Without proper GPS, it was difficult for Mr. Jubidu to keep a track of all his vehicles correctly. He had to rely on verbal communication that he received from drivers. Also, if any vehicle or driver needed any kind of help, it was impossible for the fleet manager to provide any kind of assistance without have correct information of their actual location.
Traditional trucking companies and drivers maintained all their information and travel records on paper, in several copies. This was a time consuming process; it was also difficult to physically keep them for many years. As the records were manually entered, the information could possibly be incorrect or easily tampered with. Filing for quarterly taxes and other reports also became a tedious job for the fleet manager, who had to personally go through all the information, written on paper, do required calculations and file the reports, by hand.
When FMCSA introduced the ELD mandate, it became pertinent for all trucking companies to opt for approved ELD so that they could comply with hours of service rules as laid down by DoT. Companies who used paper logs were required to move to automatic recording of information though electronic logging devices. FMCSA made it mandatory, and failure to comply would mean severe fines.
Paper logs have always been prone to errors and miscalculations. It also took up a lot of driver’s driving time. The paper logs are manual records, fleet managers could not always trust them and there was zero-transparency in the process. Wrong paper logs would also mean wrong filing of reports, and often result in huge fines. Moreover, during inspection, it was hard for drivers to share the logs with the security officer.
Why JBD LLC chose Matrack’s ELD solution:
Matrack devices are in compliance with the ELD mandate and are approved by FMCSA. They automatically record the relevant data as required under Hours of Service rules by DoT. If a trucking company fails to implement ELDs in all their vehicles, it could mean severe fines and penalties, which can be avoided by FMCSA-approved Matrack ELDs.
Matrack has designed it ELD and FMS in a way that they are the best in the world of technology, and yet very simple to use. Fleet managers and drivers do not need special skill set or expert training to install the device as well as the software. Moreover, the software can be easily downloaded on any Android and iOS of choice from their respective app stores.
All ELDs by Matrack have inbuilt GPS that are durable, weather-resistant, reliable and come with Bluetooth function that makes it easier to keep a constant contact. As most truck drivers are required to travel long routes, having a good and dependable GPS allows them to reach their destination in time, without delays of any kind. Also, in case they need help, they can easily let the fleet manager know their location for faster response.
Matrack ELDs can also track the total number of driving hours, mileage, idle time and more. This helps the fleet manager in identifying the amount of time a vehicle is actually sitting idle, probably at a client’s loading/unloading dock, and can use this information to create a route that is more efficient and uses driver’s driving time optimally.
Fleet managers can set alerts and notifications for certain events like bad driving behaviour, fuel consumption, failure of vehicle equipment, GeoFence, accidents, thefts, emergency and more, and get these notifications on the device of their choice. This helps the fleet managers in multi-tasking as using their time more effectively.
