Introducing Carmalink Plus

After listening to feedback, it became clear that a lot of our customers have mixed use fleets, and not all of them need ELD. However, all trucks needed connected dash cams and navigation.

This caused an issue between using ELDs for all trucks and creating issues for the back office staff dealing with unclaimed records from non-ELD drivers or only having part of their fleet covered with nav and cameras.

We wanted to create a new plan that fits between the Basic and Pro that brings the advantages of running an ELD tablet in a truck without the ELD headaches.

Cameras Improving Trucker Safety

You are rolling down the road, a green light ahead with a clear intersection. In an instant, you pick up a vehicle out of the corner of your eye. It fails to stop for the red light and slams into the side of your truck. Your truck begins to spin sideways, but you recover and manage to pull off to the shoulder to check on the other driver.

How to fight distracted driving

Safety

It's a common sight on roads today, a driver is stopped at a light that has just turned green, heads down, eyes glued to their phone. People just can't seem to be able to disconnect from their electronic distractions.

Blocking texting or other features on your driver's phone might not be the best solution. Taking a systematic approach to reduce distractions in the vehicle and train your driver on what is expected of them when they are driving your vehicle.
