Verizon Networkfleet and J.J. Keller have announced a partnership to create a GPS-enabled fleet management device for regional and longhaul trucking.
"Due to increased regulatory scrutiny aimed at keeping the roads safer — including a potential regulation by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration requiring electronic logging of drivers’ hours of service — we recognized that the time was right to introduce a comprehensive and cost-effective compliance solution based on telematics,” Verizon Networkfleet general manager Joshua Haims said in a statement. The Verizon-built device will run on J.J. Keller’s Encompass software. It will manage hours-of-service compliance and driver inspection reports, as well as fuel taxes, according to the companies.
The device, available later this year, will be able to transfer data to the J.J Keller mobile app.
"Verizon Networkfleet and J.J. Keller are offering a different approach to the regional and long-haul trucking markets in developing a compliance solution that includes telematics-based features for improved driver safety and efficiency,” said Clement Driscoll, Founder & President of C.J. Driscoll & Associates. “This offering will leverage the strengths of leaders in their respective fields."
