Important ELD Update:

The FMCSA previously stated that pre-2000 vehicles would be exempt based on the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN).
However, the agency has recently clarified this exemption.

When pre-2000 vehicles, based on VIN, have an engine manufactured after 1999, based on the engine serial number, the exemption does not apply to these vehicles.

To clarify, vehicles having engines where the engine serial number is year 2000 or newer , will require ELDs, even though the Vehicle Vin is prior to 2000.

A brief overview of some of the available features is described below.




  DOT Compliant ELDFMCSA/DOT Compliant ELDsFMCSA/DOT Compliant ELDs
Our ELDs are BYOD Android® devices. There are over 35 Android® applications available which perform many functions including the mandated RODS and Log Book operations. These apps perform ALL required and mandated functions which are defined in the latest FMCSA regulations.
Additionally, the "Management Integrated Logistics Executive Suite" (aka M.I.L.E.S) allows for Single and Team drivers, Exempt and Non-Exempt drivers and many other functions over and above the new regulations.
(see more details in Driver Android Tablet Applications below)


Mobile ManagementAndroid ApplicationsM.I.L.E.S Android® Applications Suite
The Load-Logistics "Management Integrated Logistics Executive Suite" is a collection of Android® applications which communicate in real-time with devices in the vehicles as well as communications to and from Dispatch.
These apps allow for the automation of many driver daily functions (described below) while greatly reducing the need for constant communications between the driver and dispatcher while also greatly increasing management functions and capabilities. The Android® apps also "trigger" AEN functions which automatically send notifications to customers, dispatchers and shippers.
Using log book information, the drivers are notified of potential violations for on-duty, driving and breaks.
These apps also allow for local printing of Log Books, DVIRs, PODs and Service Invoices and more (if printers are installed in the vehicle).


Smart Truck RouteIFTA ReportingIFTA Reporting via the SmartTruckRoute® Interface
Using the SmartTruckRoute® app, the Android® devices report mileage by state to the server.
Coupled with the fuel data collected by the server, IFTA information is collected.
The Load-Logistics dispatch modules produces various Lane Analysis and IFTA* reports.


real time communicationsOBD diagnostics interfaceOBD Diagnostics Interface
The Load-Logistics Android® apps communicate in real-time with the OBD device in the trucks to report Real-Time statistics including Fault Codes, RPM, Odometer, Speedometer and other parameters to the dispatchers. This option requires Android® devices and OBD device to be used in the truck.
In addition, the on-board OBD diagnostic tool allows the driver to inspect information retrieved from the OBD device.
(see more details in Remote Dashboard below)


Scantool utilityscan tool diagnosticsScanTool Utility
The Load-Logistics Android® apps are able to analyze far more ECM values than are required by the new regulations.
The ScanTool app allows the driver(s) and/or mechanic(s) to view/diagnose ECM parameters without having to bring the vehicle into the repair shop. This utility also has the ability to email the reported results in the event a "record" is needed.
(see more details in SCAN-TOOL Android® Tablet Application below)


vehicle monitoringvehicle managementVehicle (ECM) Monitoring
The VEHICLE MONITORING SERVICE allows management and dispatchers to monitor the values being reported by the ECM. This monitoring function also allows approved personnel to set "Triggers" for each item being monitored
(see more details in VEHICLE MONITORING SERVICE below).

themselves, and later viewed, retrieved or printed.
Additionally, documents created from the Load-Logistics modules and apps are "attached" to the appropriate customer, driver, load or trip and can be viewed via a standard web browser.
A few examples of EDSR are:
...... credit authorization and other documents relating to a customer
...... Proof of Insurance, W-9, COA and other documents related to a Carrier
...... load documents to a specific load (authorization, description, image etc)
...... Proof of Delivery (POD) and service documents to a load or stop
...... Trip documents for specific trips
...... and other document types
