Teletrac Navman, a provider of GPS tracking and fleet management solutions, today announced it is guaranteeing federally mandated electronic-logging-device hours of service (HOS) compliance for its Director product platform. Current Director HOS customers will receive firmware and software updates to comply with ELD mandate requirements throughout the ELD timeline and beyond — with no additional charge. Devices conforming to the current Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration Automatic Onboard Recording Device (AOBRD) requirements, located in CFR 395.15, are allowed under the current solution to be utilized by fleets in their current form through through December 16, 2019.
Citing some technical elements of FMCSA’s ELD requirements that have yet to be specified, Teletrac Navman said it will continue to upgrade existing Director HOS customers with the relevant compliance specifications when and as they become defined, ensuring customers’ Director investments remain protected after the December 2017 and 2019 compliance deadlines.
The Director fleet management platform tracks assets and collects data for business insights. In addition to reducing the paperwork necessary for tracking HOS, it provides second-by-second information to help carriers reduce operational expenses, identify trends, improve business processes and build a more efficient, safe and connected fleet.
In addition to ensuring ongoing ELD mandate compliance as the specifications are released, Teletrac Navman Director HOS customers will continue to receive free system installation and training.
