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 Secretaría 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.
