How ELDs will help drive velocity, precision operations and service for shipper supply chains How ELDs will help drive velocity, precision operations and service for shipper supply chains

Electronic Logging Devices (ELDs) are a technology whose time has come. Carriers, drivers and shippers all will benefit as fleets upgrade their systems to be ELD compliant by December 2019.

ELDs provide more accurate pickup and delivery times, better compliance with customer-specific needs, and more precise operations that can contribute to the velocity of supply chain flow and order fulfillment.

Achieving the benefits of ELDs will depend on carriers strategically and proactively working with shippers to use ELD data in creative ways. Among the opportunities:

  • Deploying trucking asset capacity as flexible, nimble "rolling warehouses";
  • Executing more time-definite pickup and delivery services and real-time accurate ETAs;
  • Reducing labor costs through more precise scheduling of pickups and deliveries;
  • Elevating service levels with ever-more precise operations and the provision of real-time shipment visibility throughout the entire shipment lifecycle.
