Eight Essential Features For ELD Compliance

A tablet- and smartphone-based ELD solution offers significant advantages.

Published by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), the ELD mandate requires most commercial vehicles operating in the country to install ELDs by December 2019. The ELD mandate was developed to promote driver safety and accountability in the trucking industry—but achieving ELD compliance hasn’t felt as straightforward as it should.

NexTraq® has the solution you need with our new NexTraq® ELD for Tablets and Smartphones.
