Together with CalAmp’s edge computing devices, the company will offer assured Techmatics’ apollo Electronic Logging Device (ELD) solution to commercial and public fleet operators, enabling them to capture and log critical data necessary for regulatory compliance.
The apollo ELD has been approved by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration for interstate and intrastate commerce across the U.S., by a third-party body accredited with the Minister of Transport for Canada, and by the Secretaría de Comunicaciones y Transportes for Mexico.
According to a statement from CalAmp, the apollo ELD makes it easy for drivers to manage their hours-of-service (HOS) logbooks, vehicle inspection reports, fuel usage records and receipts. CalAmp’s edge computing device connects to the in-cab tablet and provides information to support state-by-state and cross-border regulatory rule requirements. ELD data will be integrated with other tractor, trailer and cargo insights and accessible through CalAmp’s portfolio of Software-as-a-Service or Platform-as-a-Service solutions.
CalAmp will offer apollo ELD with the following bundled or standalone subscription services:
- Hours of Service;
- Driver Verification and Inspection Reporting; and
- International Fuel Tax Agreement Compliance.
According to David Seijo, president of assured Techmatics, the apollo ELD is the most comprehensive, easy-to-use system to help commercial fleets achieve compliance.
“This includes streamlining how drivers manage their electronic logs and daily tasks, as well as how fleet managers obtain these insights from their drivers,” he said. “We are excited to partner with CalAmp as a company with a shared vision for connected intelligence of all vehicles, assets and drivers for smarter, better fleet management.”
The goal is to protect everyone who shares the open road, said Brett Jackson, senior vice president of transportation and logistics for CalAmp.
“The data that the assured Techmatics’ apollo ELD system collects for compliance purposes perfectly complements our full stack of fleet and asset tracking solutions,” he continued. “Working together, we can help commercial fleet managers and drivers improve fleet safety and regulatory compliance with real-time, state-by-state and cross-border requirements while transporting goods within and across the United States, Canada and Mexico.”
