    ELD mandate is killing our fleet here in NJ. Started shipping interstate only last year (great timing right!). Now we've got to cover our fleet and the monthly fee's are atrocious! We're smaller, but even at 25 trucks the charges really add up! Demo'd keep trucking. I like the product, but they just started charging $50 a truck for a damn data cable.

    Has anyone used amil freight? Check em out, seems legit.

    Only company so far that's offered a free option by running 4 loads/month thru they're board. Sounds a little too good to be true, but i'll explore ANY free option.

    Please let me know what ya'll are choosing. Thanks!

    Thanks for the info! How do you like using it? Haven't had a demo with them yet, i believe initial quote was $40+ per truck. Amil freight/keep trucking/convoy seem to best the best costing options. Will look more into peoplenet this morning

    Alot of companies I've talked to are going to tablet with blue tooth elog System.
    They tell me it's inexpensive and fleet affordable I'm thinking about signing on with a company that uses them but can't tell you more then that

    We have purchased Fleetmatics a few years ago but we are not going to use their ELD option ( compliance issue) we have decide to stay with the AOBRD version. Their ELD is outrageously cumbersome and not compliant. Company is owned by Verizon but managed by other or original Execs

    For single O/O or small fleet I would look into a company called VDO pretty neat stuff , good for a small fleet ( Bar Bones compliance)
