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.

Our ELD devices and software are currently registered with the FMCSA
Load-Logistics Transportation Management System from LL Software®
A brief overview of some of the available features is described below.
FMCSA/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)
M.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).
IFTA 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.
OBD 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)
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 (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).
Mobile Asset Monitoring
Mobile Asset Monitoring allows approved personnel to monitor AND communicate with drivers. This tool displays the location, duty status and configuration of the vehicle as well as allowing the user to communicate with the driver via SMS text, email or voice (phone).
(see more details in LL-Connect (Mobile Asset Monitoring Tool below).
EDSR (Electronic Document Storage & Retrieval)
This feature allows for electronic document storage and retrieval.
Documents can be uploaded to the server, or may be created by the modules
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
AEN (Automated Email Notification)
This feature allows automated email notifications to be sent using event triggers such as:
...... customers - when loads are picked up
...... customers - when loads are delivered
...... customers - when invoices are created (invoice attached)
...... drivers - when loads/trips have been assigned
...... drivers - when loads/trips are modified
...... and more
This feature will also create CSV file(s) and/or PDF files and "attach" these files to the applicable emails being sent.
No Software Installation Needed
Load-Logistics TMS applications do not require installation of software on the user's computer in order to use the Load-Logistics applications.
Any device with encryption-capable browser and assigned access can the TMS application software modules.
User-Controlled Administrative Functions
Load-Logistics modules allow your system administrator to configure all necessary profiles including customers, drivers, carriers, tractors, trailers, IMEI and GPS data and external application conversion parameters.
Your system administrator also configures the "notification" parameters, document "view" and "upload" capabilities.
ALL Load-Logistics modules can be modified to interface to, and from, your existing external applications.
Data (CSV) files can be imported into the Load-Logistics modules.
Data (CSV) files are created to be imported into your external applications.
Applications Interfaces (APIs)
The Load-Logistics TMS modules and Android® apps support API interfaces to multiple software products/vendors available in the market(s). These API interfaces allow the incorporation of existing marketplace functions and capabilities to be embedded with the functionality of the Load-Logistics modules and apps.
Load-Logistics modules (and Android® apps) assign Latitudes and Longitudes to each asset, customer, pickup or delivery location and stored data as needed. This function is also used by the Android® apps for mapping and routing functions.
The Load-Logistics TMS modules include a variety of functions including Load Planning & Staging, Communications Monitoring, configuration options for Company, Drivers, Tractors and Trailers, Performance Analysis, Reporting by Asset, Vehicle Maintenance and many others..
Internal Messaging & SMS Texts
This feature allows the users to communicate using a closed "internal messaging system" which does not require external communications software and/or applications since this messaging system is a "closed-system" software module.
These messages cause indicators to appear on the menu screens and can be accessed using the internal messaging software in this module.
Additionally, the dispatchers have the capability to send SMS texts directly to the driver's cell phone if needed.
RDD (Remote Document Display)
This feature allows authorized users to view and print documents remotely that are "attached" to their assigned loads and/or trips.
System and Software Compatibility
ALL Load-Logistics TMS modules are designed to be accessible from mobile devices or any device with web browser capability.
GPS Vehicle and Asset Tracking
The Load-Logistics dispatch modules use Android® devices to track and identify assets.
Additional interfaces to your current GPS or AVL provider to track equipment can also be created (additional charges may apply for non-certified equipment).
The Load Logistics® TMS includes all necessary components to perform day-to-day operations including ELD applications described below.
Each fleet has access to 500+ available applications/functions to facilitate the operation of their fleet.
The Load-Logistics modules can be configured to accomodate freight brokers as well as carriers.
The Yard Management modules track inbound and outbound equipment by carrier/owner and equipment identification. These modules provide current and historical location reporting by carrier and/or equipment along with unloading, loading and equipment status information.
The warehouse management module performs intake, location and shipping functions as well as locator and historical reporting functions.
The distribution center module combines the functionality of both the yard and warehouse management modules. Additionally, the distribution center modules performs automated notifications as well as historical equipment tracking. This module is supported locally by several Android® applications which allow the yard personnel to quickly and efficiently manage the movements of equipment between doors and spots as well as within the warehouse.
The fleet manager(s) may configure:
the vehicle(s) to be monitored
the item(s) to be monitored for each vehicle
the low value and high value allowed for each item being monitored
and whether to notify the driver via pop-up message or notify the dispatcher or both.
** The VMS is part of the ECM communications group **
