With technology evolving at a rapid pace in the transportation industry, a growing number of fleet operators are looking for telematics and onboard technology solutions that help increase visibility into their daily operations, with hopes of identifying and correcting any fleet inefficiencies.
The Truck Renting and Leasing Association (TRALA) reported over the weekend that the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) listed its 90-day waiver from the Electronic Logging Device (ELD) mandate, for rental trucks on its website. While TRALA was granted the waiver December 12, 2017, it was awaiting FMCSA to formally post the waiver in the Federal Register. TRALA expects FMCSA to formally post the waiver in the Federal Register later this week. Penske Truck Leasing is a member of TRALA and operates an extensive fleet of commercial rental trucks.
Penske Truck Leasing has established an onboard technology consulting group within its existing operations. The group was created as a value-added service to help Penske’s customers to address the proliferation of technology choices and questions fleet operators have about selecting, evaluating, implementing, and using onboard systems. Penske takes a device-neutral approach when helping its customers evaluate on-board systems.
