TAMPA, Fla., October 18, 2017 – Transflo, a leader in enterprise mobility, telematics, and business process automation for the transportation industry, continues to bring its next-generation (NextGen) telematics and electronic logging solution to commercial truck drivers through a new partnership with Convoy, the leading technology-enabled trucking marketplace.
Convoy connects trucking carriers with companies that ship freight. The company uses mobile technology and matching algorithms to match freight with available trucks at a competitive price, from its national network of 200,000 drivers and owner-operators.
“Drivers are looking for education and support to help them through the transition to electronic logs, stated George Abernathy, Vice President of Sales and Supply Chain Solutions at Transflo. “We’re pleased to add Convoy as a new partner in extending Transflo’s ELD solution to the trucking community. Convoy’s focus on supporting drivers and commitment to customer service, directly aligns with ours.”
As part of the partnership, Convoy will list Transflo as a recommended electronic logging device (ELD) provider to truckers in the Convoy network who need to be compliant with new electronic logging requirements by December 18. Drivers can self-install the next generation Transflo ELD T7 unit and choose a subscription plan that best meets their need. Plans address everything from simple ELD compliance to comprehensive fleet telematics capabilities.
“The number of ELD options on the market is overwhelming, said Matthew Kurman, Head of Carrier Partnerships, Convoy. “By partnering with companies like Transflo to provide recommended ELD services, we can help guide our carriers through changes in the trucking industry and continue to deliver tools and resources that enable them to thrive and succeed.”
Carriers in the Convoy network can access Transflo’s electronic logging offering starting this week.
