Transportation app creator BigRoad announced that it is partnering with the National Association of Small Trucking Companies (NASTC), and its cellular partner Sprint to provide BigRoad’s electronic HOS logging system to NASTC members across North America.
BigRoad’s smartphone e-Log app replaces time consuming and error prone paper logbooks required for roadside inspection by authorities such as the Department of Transport (DOT) with a free and easy-to-use electronic logging system.
The BigRoad app is free for drivers and costs $15 per vehicle for a complete fleet system. The software is tailor-made for the needs of the independent driver and small fleet owners looking to lower log auditing costs, and protect their CSA 2010 safety score, the company says.
“The BigRoad app allows us all to move off paper logs, and provides clean, error free electronic ‘paperwork.’ We’re delighted to partner with BigRoad and our existing partner Sprint to bring this app and the best phones and nationwide plans to our membership,” says David Owen, President, NASTC.
“BigRoad is saving my drivers time and me money,” says Billy Barstow, owner, Barstow Transportation of Lakeland, Florida. “I had all six of my guys up and running on the BigRoad system in a matter of hours and they’ve all taken to it like ducks to water for electronic HOS logging.”
The BigRoad app is now on the smart phones of more than 33,000 drivers across North America and is currently in use or trial with more than 420 fleets. says BigRoad CEO Kelly Frey.
BigRoad’s app for Android is available free for download directly from Google Play using the following link http://bit.ly/GPlayStore. An iPhone version of the driver app is expected later this year.
