At Trucker Tools, we’re all about giving you options that make your life easier. That’s why we’re happy to offer ELD integration to trucking companies that prefer to use ELDs for load tracking purposes. Enabling ELD tracking with Trucker Tools is a quick and easy process for you and your staff, but the benefits are big. Tracking a load digitally with an ELD means fewer check calls, which is always a good thing. With an ELD integration, you also can provide real-time load information to your broker/3PL partners who use Trucker Tools’ real-time visibility platform to track loads.

Quick and Easy Process To Enable ELD Load Tracking

If you’re already using Trucker Tool’s free Smart Capacity software for carriers, the process for enabling ELD load tracking is easy: simply click on the drop down menu on the top righthand corner and click on “Enable ELD.” You’ll need to enter the ELD provider’s name and a contact email address, and you’re done. That’s it. If you’re not using our free Smart Capacity platform for carriers, no problem. Simply contact our support team and we’ll take it from there.

In most cases, it only takes our support team one to three days to complete the integration, provided you supply the necessary information. It’s also worth noting that enabling ELD load tracking with Trucker Tools doesn’t cost you a thing — it’s free.

ELD Integration with Trucker Tools Reduces Check Calls

The greatest benefit of tracking a load digitally is that it reduces check calls — between your carrier dispatch and your drivers, and between your carrier dispatch and brokers. When information is shared in real-time, your dispatcher doesn’t have to pick up the phone to find out where that truck is. They can simply look on their computer screen. That’s a huge time saver and means your staff members can work on generating revenue instead of being on the phone all day. In addition, enabling ELD integration with Trucker Tools means that your staff members don’t have to be on the phone taking calls from brokers all day who are asking, “Where’s that load?”

Trucker Tools Respect Your Drivers’ Privacy

Trucker Tools follows and respects all privacy laws around ELD integration. You must give us permission in order for us to enable ELD integration for load tracking purposes. You also must approve releasing any data to Trucker Tools. We follow current best practices and laws for cyber security and data storage, and we won’t sell or misuse drivers’ information.
