What happens when your current ELD provider shuts down and “abandons ship,” or in this case, “abandons truck”? You’re left un-compliant with little to no support team to guide you on what to do next. As recently mentioned across the trucking industry, it is likely there will be more ELD provider shutdowns in the future who ultimately give up on their drivers. But not us, not Konexial.
The Konexial team was one of the first ELD providers to announce an exclusive offer to help One20 “F-ELD” users who were left in the dust following the ELD provider shutdown, which goes into full effect on June 18, 2018. Konexial’s “Trade UP” offer is still valid for a limited time only. Users can receive a $50 trade-in credit to switch to Konexial’s My20 ELD, offered at $129.99 for the 9-pin ECM plug-in hardware with a follow-on $15-per-month subscription fee. Additionally, customers have the option of choosing the My20 Tower which adds dispatch/fleet-management functionality.
“We want to do everything we can to help the companies and drivers that have been abandoned by their ELD provider,” said Ken Evans, Chief Executive Officer, Konexial.
Konexial My20 ELD customers also have the option of subscribing to the GoLoad dynamic load matching platform, which matches drivers with extra hours and capacity with available loads from shippers based on location, direction, hours of service, and economic criteria. GoLoad uses the data from My20 ELD to dramatically increase a driver’s earning potential.
When carriers and shippers sign up for GoLoad to book available loads, they agree on three terms—all designed to solve the biggest issues in trucking:
- Set Fuel Prices: Fuel prices are set by the platform and are based on average fuel price in the lane on the day of the shipment.
- Fees for Detention/Delays: Detention at loading and unloading facilities is automatically billed through geo-fencing at the rate of $200 per hour for any time the driver is detained beyond 90 minutes combined at pickup and drop-off locations.
- Prompt Payment: Freight payments are sent to the carrier 48 hours after the carrier uploads a proof-of-delivery image.
GoLoad is also available as an open API to other ELD and telematics providers. Konexial welcomes abandoned ELD users and users who are just plain unhappy with their current provider. With personalized customer support and innovative transportation technology, Konexial is transforming the trucking industry for the good of truckers, shippers, and end consumers.
