Many large fleets have already converted from paper logs to ELD’s. However, many truckers fear the unknown and having to adopt new ways of running their business, additional costs, and new technology. There are additional costs associated with keeping up with the times that are also preventing business owners from making the switch. Some truckers even considering retirement or changing profession.
At Gould we want to do everything we can to help make this process seamless. New processes and technology can seem daunting at first. Insurance plays a big role in the trucking industry and as your trusted insurance provider we do our best to stay up to date on all the latest mandates.
