A series of positive short-term actions and changes in safety processes can make a long-lasting difference.
The right ELD can collect an array of telematics data beyond just engine hours, helping fleets do more than simply comply with hours of service requirements.
Trucking companies can improve their driver Compliance, Safety, Accountability scores by leveraging the data and historical research available to them to help reduce the risk of collisions.
When undergoing compliance investigations, it is important for commercial trucking companies to know what to prepare for and to understand that even in the ELD world, investigators will continue to dig deep for falsified hours of service records.
“Innovation is no longer a luxury,” says Tami Erwin, executive vice president and CEO of Verizon Business Group.

When it comes to advanced commercial vehicle safety, systems capabilities have improved through advancements in sensor and camera technologies, paving the way for the next generation of vehicle safety technologies. Most common safety features on a commercial vehicle today provide warning capabilities, through functionality such as forward collision warning, lane departure warning, and blind spot monitoring. These systems provide audible and/or visual alerts in the vehicle cab to alert the driver about an impending incident.
