According to a recent article on Overdrive, 46% of owner-operators are displeased with their ELD providers.

Promoting Safe Roads, Easily and Simply.
ELD Solutions is excited to discuss the impact of ELDs with the leaders of our road safety alliance. While we strive to make our equipment highly effective for drivers and fleet managers, we also emphasize compliance with the safety regulations and laws set in place by the FMCSA.
It's an exciting time to join the ELD Solutions family! We're looking to add to our dedicated team, with several positions available at our Knoxville office.
