ONE20 Launches F-ELD: An Antidote to Government ELD Mandate

Free monthly ELD subscription reinforces commitment to independent drivers

MINNEAPOLIS, March 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- ONE20, the fastest growing driver-focused community aimed at making life on the road more convenient, enjoyable and cost-effective, has announced plans to launch an Electronic Logging Device, named F-ELD, with an easy-to-use driver app. The new platform is fully compliant, subscription free, functional and created for the driver. It has an intuitive interface that is 100 percent driver-controlled and accessed through a free app.        

As part of the 2012 mandate for electronic logging devices, fleets of all sizes have until December 2017 to implement certified ELDs to record hours of service (HOS). For the past five years, drivers have been dreading the changeover from manual log books to ELDs, fearing added costs and hassles that will make life on the road more complicated.

"The trucking industry has long been anticipating this forced government ELD mandate. ONE20 has taken the initiative to once again keep drivers' best interests top-of-mind and offer them the most affordable and simple ELD solution – all without monthly fees," said Christian Schenk, founder, president and CEO of ONE20. "Drivers want something simple, affordable and compliant that won't force them to give up their privacy – that is exactly why we developed F-ELD."

The ONE20 F-ELD is a plug-and-play device that wirelessly pairs with a driver's smartphone or tablet. Once the ELD is purchased and installed, drivers can download the free Android- and iOS- compatible App to establish HOS and driver-vehicle inspection report (DVIR) preferences. The ELD device attaches to the truck through a J1939 or J1708 cable. Drivers will manage the application and have full control of the reporting.

"The industry needs options and not all fleets are looking to acquire the more comprehensive enterprise systems," said Schenk. As such, ONE20 is partnering with the nation's largest and most recognized brands to bring flexibility and affordability to mixed fleets. PeopleNet and ONE20 are developing an interface between F-ELD and the PeopleNet system.

"Our customers want flexibility and options, and PeopleNet is committed to just that. F-ELD gives clients who authorize data sharing a low/no cost option for the portions of their fleet not requiring functionality above the driver logs offered by ONE20," said Eric Witty, vice president of product management for PeopleNet.

ONE20 is also proud to announce that its main technology sponsor for the already available ONE20 tablet bundle is getting behind its ELD offering. "We are excited to announce that Samsung is providing its customers an additional $20 in savings off the F-ELD pre-order during the Mid-America Trucking Show," said Jake Dettmer, executive vice president affiliate programs and advertising for ONE20. "Drivers prefer Samsung devices over any other brand and to show this level of compassion for its users is a real testament to our partnership and our strategy to lessen the burden of the ELD mandate," Dettmer said.

"Most independent drivers hate the mandate," said Schenk. "They are afraid of more regulation, higher costs and greater interference in their personal and professional lives. It's simply crushing the spirit of our membership community, but when drivers speak up we listen and deliver."

"We wanted to build a solution that was not daunting for drivers," said Charlie Mohn, vice president of product management for ONE20.  "The F-ELD can be installed in minutes and requires little to no training, giving drivers the power and control; not someone else."

The ONE20 F-ELD will be available to ship in July of 2017. Professional drivers may pre-order the device at www.ONE20.com/ELD. Drivers attending the Mid-America Trucking Show wanting to pre-order the device at the show can take advantage of a show-only special and buy the device for $99.99, or $79.99 for Samsung device owners.
