Enterprise Launches Telematics Product for Truck Rental Customers

Enterprise Truck Rental is now offering Enterprise Telematics. Powered by Geotab, the telematics solution provides real-time tracking data for monitoring vehicle and driver performance.

Under the new ELD rules, inspection officers will ask to see the ELD screen, which must be made available to the officer without getting into the truck. If requested, the driver must be ready to transfer logbook data electronically on the spot. Regarding potential compliance violations, the rules stay the same.
