5 months left! (And 5 reasons why you should utilize Omnitracs XRS ELD’s)
We are now 5 months away from the compliance date for the ELD Mandate requiring all commercial motor vehicles that travel in the United States to have electronic logging devices (ELDs). As many trucking companies have been doing, you are likely exploring your options and comparing a number of different vendor’s technologies, features and associated costs. Somewhere along the line you may start thinking “I don’t know how to select a vendor. There are just so many and they all seem the same!”.
We understand this thinking and as a result we always encourage our customers to consider a variety of factors before coming to their ELD selection decision. If you are looking to purchase ELDs and are wondering why you’d choose Omnitracs XRS, you’ve come to the right place.
