The implementation of electronic logging devices (ELDs) to manage and track Hours of Service (HOS) for commercial drivers, owner-operators, and small carriers has made the roads safer for everyone. After the ELD mandate went into effect, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) reported:

    • 1,844 fewer crashes each year
    • 562 fewer crash-related injuries
    • 26 fewer traffic fatalities

ELDs help to ensure the safety of everyone on the road. The Xpress Technologies ELD syncs with the Xpress Technologies App, so you’re able to easily track and manage your Record of Duty Status (RODS) data.

    • $570 million in fewer crashes
    • $2.4 billion in less time spent on paperwork
    • $1.2 billion in savings each year

Stay safe on the road, reduce time spent on paperwork, and make tracking compliance easier than ever. Request an Xpress Technologies ELD today.

ELDs help ensure the safety of everyone on the road. However, when you run a small business, every tool you use should be working as hard as possible for you. That’s why Xpress Technologies developed its no-cost ELD to specifically help your business become more profitable. Beyond helping carriers stay in compliance, the Xpress Technologies ELD helps optimize how you find freight by providing personalized load opportunities that are tailored to your individual preferences and business needs. It’s the only ELD on the market that will help you find the best possible loads for your business.

Track and Manage Records of Duty Status

Working as an owner-operator comes with its fair share of challenges. On top of finding freight [link to Blog 1: Finding Freight], you must maintain vehicles and stay on top of complying with state and federal regulations for carriers.

The Xpress Technologies ELD syncs with the Xpress Technologies App, so you’re able to easily track and manage your Record of Duty Status (RODS) data.

Maintaining HOS compliance shouldn’t take up your valuable time. With the Xpress Technologies ELD, tracking driving hours is quick, simple, and intuitive. With just the tap of a button, you can report your status and view your hours. Remaining hours are broken down into four separate clocks:

    • Break
    • Driving
    • Duty
    • Cycle

    These clocks are a visual representation of where your HOS stands. HOS regulations include: 

    • Limiting driving to 11 out of 14 hours in any given day and follow each driving day with a 10-hour rest period
    • 30-minute breaks for every 8 hours of driving
    • Not exceeding 60 hours of driving in 7 days or 70 hours of driving in 8 days
    • 34 hours of rest before restarting a 7 or 8-day cycle of driving

Some of these regulations have a bit of flexibility to account for inclement weather and cabs with sleeper berths, but regardless of the weather or type of vehicle, the process of tracking all of the hours a driver logs in a week can be an arduous one. Xpress Technologies HOS clocks help maintain your compliance.

ELD management requires more than just logging HOS. Some ELDs do nothing more than adhere to the compliance requirements established by the FMCSA. The Xpress Technologies ELD also offers:

    • Recording of International Fuel Tax Agreement (IFTA) miles by state
    • Handling of Driver Vehicle Inspection Reports (DVIRs)
    • Shareable location tracking and GPS features

Some estimates share that many ELDs can cost as much as $832 every year. Xpress Technologies is dedicated to providing solutions that support carrier success, that’s why the Xpress Technologies ELD was designed to make compliance an asset to carriers, not a hindrance. Our ELD is available at no cost, and integrates seamlessly with the Xpress Technologies App to provide an all-in-one carrier solution.

With the Xpress Technologies plug-and-play ELD, carriers like you have a no-cost way to track your compliance with ease and grow your business.
