PeopleNet Announces New Resource to Help Fleets Comply with the ELD Mandate

MINNEAPOLIS, May 15, 2014—PeopleNet® (, a Trimble® company and leading provider of fleet mobility technology, today announced the availability of a new analysis of the issues fleets should consider in complying with the Electronic Logging Device (ELD) Mandate and the new law for tracking hours of service (HOS). PeopleNet’s extensive committee participation in government and legislative issues surrounding safety, regulatory and technology issues make it a trusted resource for ELD information.

“The latest ruling in March indicating that the rule would go into effect two years from the final rule has catapulted ELD to a high priority for fleet planning,” said PeopleNet President Brian McLaughlin. “As fleets begin to prepare for their compliance due dates, this paper will help them navigate the many decisions facing them. In addition to selecting a provider and an ELD that fits their current needs, fleets must consider how their choices will support growth. We developed insights and analysis of key issues that will help fleets intelligently assess the technology landscape.”
