5 Ways ELD Data Can Transform Your Business

Truck News 1.0

An Electronic Logging Device (ELD) program can be useful to your company and operation. The data available to you and your drivers through ELD not only helps you stay compliant with regulations but can be used to make efficiency improvements. 

  1. Track idling and reduce fuel costs – The data can be used to monitor idle time per vehicle. The data can help you inform drivers of their behavior to improve up-time and behind-the-wheel efficiencies. 
  2. Track driver behavior to improve safety – ELD devices can provide data like harsh braking, acceleration, and seatbelt usage which can be used to create driver scorecards. Data-based driver behavior metrics can be helpful to improve safety of your fleet. 
  3. Analyze your fleet data to improve operational efficiency – ELDs track a wide variety of data from mileage to GPS location to acceleration and braking. An analysis of the data in your fleet can help you find ways to improve your operation.
  4. Automated fuel tax reporting - ELD devices can help you spot trends with fuel consumption and purchase data. 
  5. Track diagnostic data - Improving your fleet uptime can be as simple as not missing preventative maintenance intervals or ignoring dashboard warning lights. An ELD program can help alert fleet managers to upcoming maintenance needs.
