IRVINE, Calif., June 21, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CalAmp (Nasdaq: CAMP), a connected intelligence company helping people and organizations improve operational performance with a data-driven solutions ecosystem, today announced a new partnership with transport and compliance leader, assured Techmatics. Together with CalAmp's edge computing devices, the company will offer assured Techmatics' apollo Electronic Logging Device (ELD) solution to commercial and public fleet operators, enabling them to capture and log critical data necessary for regulatory compliance. apollo ELD has been approved by the U.S. Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) for interstate and intrastate commerce across America, by a third-party body accredited with the Minister of Transport for Canada and by the Secretaria de Comunicaciones y Transportes (SCT) for Mexico.
Within the cab, apollo ELD makes it easy for drivers to manage their HOS logbooks, vehicle inspection reports, fuel usage records and receipts. CalAmp's edge computing device connects to the in-cab tablet and provides information critical to support state-by-state and cross-border regulatory rule requirements. ELD data will be integrated with other tractor, trailer and cargo insights and accessible through CalAmp's portfolio of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) or Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) solutions.
CalAmp will offer apollo ELD with the following bundled or standalone subscription services:
Hours of Service (HOS): The ELD mandates established by the United States, Canada and Mexico require that fleets maintain Records of Duty Status (RODS) by implementing automated, certified ELD technology to track and monitor their drivers' HOS. The goal of these ELD mandates is to improve the accuracy of HOS logs and ultimately prevent driver fatigue and unsafe driving throughout North America.
Driver Verification and Inspection Reporting (DVIR): To improve road and vehicle safety, the government and compliance agencies also require commercial drivers to complete inspections of their vehicles each day. By electronically completing and submitting these reports, drivers and managers can streamline inspections and maintain a healthy fleet while meeting DVIR compliance.
International Fuel Tax Agreement (IFTA) Compliance: IFTA is an agreement for fuel tax collection among 48 U.S. states and all 10 Canadian provinces.
It stipulates that licensed commercial carriers must keep records of the fuel purchases, fuel usage and mileage operated by their drivers. Electronic records help carriers simplify these filings, eliminate errors and minimize audit risk.
Story continues "We've been in the ELD business since 2004 and have used that experience to develop the apollo ELD solution to be the most comprehensive and simple to use solution on the market for commercial fleets to achieve compliance.
This includes streamlining how drivers manage their electronic logs and daily tasks, as well as how fleet managers obtain these insights from their drivers. We are excited to partner with CalAmp as a company with a shared vision for connected intelligence of all vehicles, assets and drivers for smarter, better fleet management," said David Seijo, president, assured Techmatics. "Regulations like the ELD mandate and DVIR are designed to protect commercial fleet drivers, ensure safe vehicle operation and ultimately protect all who share the open road.
The data that the assured Techmatics' apollo ELD system collects for compliance purposes perfectly complements our full stack of fleet and asset tracking solutions. Working together, we can help commercial fleet managers and drivers improve fleet safety and regulatory compliance with real-time, state-by-state and cross-border requirements while transporting goods within and across the United States, Canada and Mexico," said Brett Jackson, senior vice president of transportation and logistics for CalAmp.
