MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., March 27, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Trucker Path, the most popular app for truckers in the U.S. with more than 2 million installations, today announced the launch of an ELD solution to help truckers comply with the deadline for the Department of Transportation's ELD mandate. The device is free, and the monthly subscription for logging services is competitively priced starting at $8.3/mo.
The easy-to-install device connects with an app to track hours of service and enable truckers to share duty status reports to simplify roadside inspections. Trucker Path ELD users no longer have to maintain handwritten logs and store paperwork; the device automatically tracks hours of service and compiles data on miles run in a state. This provides a more accurate, efficient method of logging service hours and duty status.
"Hundreds of thousands of truckers already use our app to find truck stops, truck parking, weigh stations, fuel, rest areas, truck washes and more," said Sam Bokher, Business Operations Director at Trucker Path. "The Trucker Path ELD gives truckers an easy way to track hours of service and comply with the ELD mandate. In addition, we plan to integrate ELD information into the Trucker Path app to make it easier for truckers to find truck parking."
Trucker Path, designed from the ground up for truckers, is America's largest truck driver community. Used monthly by over 600,000 truckers, the mobile app provides drivers with real-time location-specific updates on parking availability, weigh stations and truck stops. The makers of Trucker Path also offer Truckloads, a marketplace app that connects carriers with quality freight. Given the company's comprehensive focus on truckers, developing an ELD device and app was a logical step.
"Our focus is on giving truckers the tools they need to operate more efficiently," Bokher said. "Our navigational assistance and freight-matching services help truckers stay profitable and productive on the road, and we're committed to continuously improving the services we provide and developing new products to meet the trucker community's emerging needs."
