OTR Solutions Hosts ELD Open House
Roswell, GA – October 12, 2017 – OTR Capital, a nationally ranked factoring company, hosted an ELD Open House to discuss the upcoming transportation mandate.
Dozens of carriers and owner/operators came out to OTR’s headquarters in Roswell, GA to learn and discuss in great detail what the ELD (electronic logging device) means for their industry.
“Truck drivers are what keep America running every single day. This new mandate will be an adjustment but OTR has the information and resources to equip our clients so they can better understand this mandate and keep them industry compliant while also helping protect their businesses,” explained Grace Woody, OTR Corporate Operations Manager.
By federal law, every commercial vehicle must be equipped with an ELD by December 2017, affecting 3.4 million truck drivers across the country. OTR clients had a chance to speak with a representative from OTR’s ELD partner, KeepTruckin, and explore ELD options for their businesses.
“Drivers are the backbone of America and don’t get nearly enough credit as they deserve. Hosting an open house allows us to personally connect with drivers and learn more about their daily lives. Driving a truck isn’t easy and by meeting them, we can better understand how to serve their needs,” said Greg Glenn, Partner Manager for KeepTruckin. “Let’s face it, drivers don’t love the ELD mandate and I’m here to help answer any questions they have and provide them with the relevant information needed to make the correct decision.”
KeepTruckin’s ELD is the most affordable, easy-to-use solution for the ELD Mandate. Digitally, it is the number one rated electronic logging device that is driver preferred for Android and iPhone and is certified by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration.
Electronic logging devices are DoT certified electronic hardware that connect to a vehicle’s engine and automatically record driver’s driving time and hours-of-service, among other information.
KeepTruckin is on a mission to improve the efficiency and profitability of America’s trucking industry by building great technology products for truck drivers and fleet managers.
