Crestmark, Transflo Partner to Provide ELD Tech to Trucking Companies

Crestmark entered into a preferred partnership with Transflo which will help transportation companies get equipped for the electronic logging devices mandate deadline.

The deadline, which is December 1, 2017, will make electronic logging devices (ELDs) required for an estimated 3.4 million commercial truck drivers in the U.S.

ELD technology connects a vehicle’s engine with the driving log to ensure that hours of service are reported accurately. ELDs provide paperless, integrated systems to record mileage, hours driven, rest breaks and vehicle inspection reports. They also offer fleets improved safety and efficiency insights. The goal of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) ELD mandate is to ease the burden of paper-based time logs and to improve vehicle safety.

“Automation and efficiency are good for safety and the industry, but ELD regulations can be burdensome for small businesses and small budgets,” said Heath Holdbrooks, Crestmark executive vice president and Transportation Services Finance Division president. “Crestmark understands this. In support of the trucking industry, we are working hard to make sure truckers have affordable, convenient and reliable options as they make the move to electronic logging.”

Transflo is offering preferred partner pricing to Crestmark transportation clients on the Transflo ELD T7. This three-inch device installs in minutes, includes a mobile app for managing logs, and syncs with a phone or tablet.

“Transflo’s competitive rates and dependable technology could be appealing to trucking companies who are new to the market, running lean, or are not yet well-versed in ELD reporting and analytics options,” Holdbrooks said. “We urge our Crestmark trucking clients to take advantage of this discounted offer ahead of the December deadline.”

“Our fully integrated ELD solution is what carriers and drivers need in this new environment,” said George Abernathy, vice president of sales and supply chain solutions at Transflo. “The technology not only addresses the required move from paper records to electronic logs, but also foundational business needs like safety and productivity. Smaller fleets now enjoy operational capabilities that were previously out of reach.”
