With less than six months to go until the final ELD deadline, many carriers that now use Automatic On-board Recording Devices (AOBRDs) have not yet transitioned to ELDs.

Zonar has updated its AOBRD transition checklist to help fleet managers evaluate the right vendor and system for their business. This guide outlines how to find the best system, avoid faulty products or services, and reach full compliance by December 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.”

  • A workback calendar from August – December in checklist form
  • Questions fleet managers should ask vendors before signing a contract
  • Tips for training operators on new solutions
