Zonar offering checklist for transition from AOBRDs to ELDs

July 31, 2019
Zonar updated its AOBRD transition checklist to help fleet managers in the transition to ELDs.

With less than six months to go until the final Electronic Logging Device (ELD) Mandate deadline, many carriers using Automatic On-board Recording Devices (AOBRDs) still have not transitioned to ELDs. Zonar recently updated its AOBRD transition checklist to help fleet managers strategically manage the limited time remaining to choose the right vendor and solution for their business.

This guide outlines how carriers can find the best solution to fit their needs, avoid faulty products or services, and reach full compliance by Dec 16, 2019.

“We understand that businesses are waiting to make the shift from ABOBRDs to ELDs for many reasons but non-compliance or choosing the wrong solution can potentially lead to lost revenue and multiple violations,” says Fred Fakkema, vice-president of compliance at Zonar. “Since the mandate passed, we’ve listened to our customers and heard from decision makers across the industry; with this easy to follow checklist, Zonar aims to help those who need guidance regarding the transition within a shorter amount of time.”
