Intermodal portion isn’t very user friendly and tracking chassis is difficult to do. We really like the OTR Dispatch portion and all of the research options, but probably not a good option for a strictly intermodal operation..

Likes Integrated accounting Information is easy to find with their filtering system If you understand SQL language, endless reporting capability’s Free tech support. Tech support is very responsive and proactive Dislikes Requires a lot of clicks/actions to process loads Obviously a truck load based software adapted to intermodal, a number of awkward functions for intermodal and a lot of the features do not work without trouble shooting EDI requires a significant amount of effort to integrate and is fairly expensive, unlike profit tools

DISLIKE: Up until a couple months ago they were not DOT Compliant as it didn’t ping the location of the truck enough…. Seems to need a lot of updates which can occur at any time and may waist driver working day…

As a “local/regional” intermodal hauler it was very difficult to find providers understanding the “local exemption” and willing to write their software to accommodate the exemptions and HOS sets. Geotab was excellent in this area. Also the installation is very easy. The ability to send the “hard copy” of a log is very easy.

We are using XRS as our ELD provider. We have about 85% of our fleet (115 trucks) on it now. The units are easy to install and work properly. The software is easy to use and provides good reporting. Most drivers find it easy to use. The only complaint we have is from the drivers who don’t want to run ELDs in the first place.

I use KEEPTRUCKIN for my ELD. It works pretty well. The drivers access it off their cell phones and it is a once a year fee. I really have not been using it long enough to say what I like or dislike about it. I do like the fact that it has a GPS and I know exactly where my trucks are all the time.

Likes: Ease of use and great customer support Dislikes: Connectivity issues with BYOD – Our drivers were using their smart phones to log their HOS and kept having Bluetooth interruptions with the app. This mostly occurred when they made a call or played music on their phone. We remedied this by requiring all drivers to have a dedicated tablet (Android or iOS).

The only thing we don't like about EROAD is the 3 year contract. Anything with a contract that goes beyond a year is questionable in case there are problems. What we like is that it's a plugged in device. It's always on the dash and does not require any extra time on the driver. Blue tooth/phones/tablet solutions are all very time consuming to log into the device after you get the truck running. If the phone battery dies, or is low..you have problems. You have to rely heavily on the driver's own personal equipment and that would be a huge drawback. With Eroad, its a plugged in device so that totally eliminates all of those issues. It also does IFTA reporting for you.

we were already using them for driver compliance so it was a smooth transition to add this. Also the other programs I looked at did things like put driver violations for out of hours in red for the cops. We want them to work for it not point it out. Cost factor as well, some were more costly and then we would have to get licenses to merge their programs with Keller.

We are going with Rand McNally. Pricing was better than Omni-Tracs and Peoplenet for a small carrier. Liked their access to their mapping which is designed for trucks. We wanted a unit to hardwire into the trucks and the 765 if working well. We have had some software issues with the older trucks and engine ECM’s communicating with their system. But, they are addressing the issues.

Implementing since February 2017. Love the cost and features of ELD - Doesn’t integrate well with TMW TruckMate Intermodal Dispatch. ELD functionality works well.

local office is in Tualatin, Oregon and headquarters is in Auckland, New Zealand. Ongoing issues with the ELD’s not being accurate. I understand from my contacts that other vendors are having similar issues. I attribute this to the Obama administration dragging their feet on the deadlines to provide required specifications for the units and these delays worked against the industry. While I fully support the ELD concept I feel it is in no way “ready for prime time” on December 18, 2017.
