    I guess that's kind of my point.....we don't really know if it added much additional cost, or even if that was what drove the costs elaborated on the report. Is it possible that the Peoplenet system was determined to be the best system that met the required elogs and the additional telematics were just part of what came in the package?

    I don't disagree, but I would think that calculated gambles in areas like that would save quite a bit of money in the long run when they guess correctly.

    BTW, we do have quite a few 33 ft trailers that were purchased in anticipation.....

    No i would think your average small trucking company would just buy the actual tablet because of the extra cost of cameras. IMO

    I guess the extra few ft in the city would be nice but that was a gamble we lost on. Its tough to gamble and loose.

    States were we can pull triples, rocky mtn doubles, etc. IIRC most of the 33's were/are operating in the western states.

    You can't buy an iPad or any other tablet I'm aware of without a camera, it's standard equipment. Maybe the tablets Fedex bought came with the camera as part of the package and no choice to delete them.

    Were not talking about the camera on the actual tablet. It is not used anyways.

    They will be all over those 33ft trailers if it could cut a couple runs.

    Another fine example of why we don't need the "members" trying to tell the company how to run a business!!
