FleetUp, a provider of comprehensive electronic logging device (ELD) and hours of service (HOS) compliance solutions, announced the certification of its ELD device as part of the FourKites ELD Partner Network, an initiative to encourage business practices that facilitate supply chain data transparency.
The FleetUp ELD offers the most secure installation available. FleetUp’s ELD and fleet management technology services transmit driver HOS status as well as engine and fuel usage data safely via the cellular network—a safer option than Bluetooth-enabled technology.
According to FourKites, certifying trusted ELD providers will encourage shippers and 3PLs to help their carriers select ELD providers that comply with industry standards and support direct data sharing. That, in turn, helps those carriers fulfill mandatory visibility requirements in the most effective and efficient way.
FourKites certifies ELD providers based on four categories:
•Data quality—provides secure and continuously updated real-time flow of, at a minimum, location information
•Data accessibility—enables users to access high-quality data without paying add-on integration, support or other fees
•Operational integrity—values integrity in practices around user data
•Customer value—prioritizes user success and works collaboratively to help achieve maximum value
