Share it:
Trucker Tools’ Integration Partner

When it comes to digital load tracking technology, we know that what one trucker prefers might not work for another. That’s why here at Trucker Tools we are focused on forming integration partnerships with leading electronic logging device manufacturers. We recognize that some truckers want to use an app for load tracking, while others prefer to use an ELD. Our newest integration partnership is with Blue Ink Tech and its ELD. This partnership allows drivers and carriers to track loads with their Blue Ink Tech ELDs in place of Trucker Tools’ driver app.

Read on for more about our integration partnership with Blue Ink Tech and how it benefits drivers, carriers, freight brokers and logistics providers.

About Blue Ink Tech and the BIT ELD

Headquartered in Huntington, W.Va., Blue Ink Tech provides technology solutions to the trucking industry, including its flagship BIT ELD, BIT Air Scales, and fleet management and reporting software. The BIT ELD brings compliance and vehicle telematics functionality to a single, easy to use device that drivers can manage using the Blue Ink Tech app. From the app, drivers can quickly create custom HOS alerts and certify logs with a single tap. Paperless DVIRs streamline daily inspections and give drivers the option to set daily reminders to complete reports. With the fuel receipts tool within the Blue Ink Tech ELD, drivers can quickly upload fuel receipts for fuel purchase and usage tracking. 

The Blue Ink Tech ELD includes sleeper split shift, team driving and recap and planning tools for added flexibility. To simplify compliance for your back office staff, set up dashboard alerts for HOS violations, DVIR-related issues, maintenance and logbook certification. BIT ELDs work with all medium and heavy duty trucks and all BIT ELD adapters are built, programmed and packaged in Huntington, W.Va. 

Benefits for Drivers and Carriers

If you’re a driver or carrier, the integration partnership between Trucker Tools and Blue Ink Tech provides you with another choice for load tracking. If you or one of your drivers runs a load for a freight broker who uses Trucker Tools to track loads, you have the option of using the driver’s Blue Ink Tech ELD to track the load in addition to the driver app. When a load is tracked with a BIT ELD, the freight broker will still receive the real-time load data their shippers require. Instead of that location data coming from the Trucker Tools driver app and driver’s smart phone, it will come from the driver’s BIT ELD. When you track a load digitally with either an app or ELD, freight brokers can instantly see where the truck and load are once you’ve left the shipper’s facility. Access to this real-time load tracking data often reduces or eliminates check calls from brokers, minimizing distractions for drivers and driving greater efficiency for carriers. 

Benefits for Freight Brokers and 3PLs 

The integration partnership between Trucker Tools and Blue Ink Tech gives freight brokers an additional visibility technology option to offer drivers and carriers. If for some reason a driver or carrier prefers ELD-based load tracking with their BIT ELD over app-based load tracking, you can accommodate that driver or carrier with ease. When tracking a load with the driver’s Blue Ink Tech ELD, you’re able to view the real-time location of the truck and load in Trucker Tools’ Smart Capacity software platform (or in your TMS). As such, your ability to provide real-time location updates to your shippers and to deal with service delays in real-time isn’t diminished when a load is tracked with the ELD. Thanks to this integration partnership, you’re able to honor the driver/carrier’s technology preferences without negatively impacting service levels.
