Why ZED is the Ideal ELD Solution for Owner-Operators

The ELD Mandate is the most significant change the transportation industry has seen in recent years, and we recognize that it is especially frustrating for owner-operators. But at ZED, we appreciate the importance of small business and have created an ELD solution that truly takes into consideration the wants and needs of smaller carries. So here are the steps ZED takes to ensure that owner-operators do not get left behind in the face of changing legislation. 

ZED recognizes the importance of simplicity. As an owner-operator, you want to keep your business simple, and you need a simple ELD solution. You went into the business because you appreciate the freedom of the open road and the sense of independence that comes from being in control, so you don’t want to be beholden to a complicated monthly contract. Instead, ZED offers complete compliance for a one-time $200 cost, period. 

ZED knows the need for dependable support. We are FMCSA compliant and backed by Cummins, a company you can trust will remain a leader in the transportation industry through the ELD Mandate and well beyond. Our tech support is US based, so wherever you are, you know that reliable customer support is just a phone call away. 

ZED leverages your existing investments. You already have a smartphone, so use it to become ELD compliant. What is the sense in paying for a separate device and a separate data plan, when you can simply use the one you already have? Makes sense to us. 

ZED realizes the need for on-the-road accessibility. You can find ZED in many of the places you already go. ZED ELD is available throughout the national network of Cummins sales and service locations, truck dealerships, and of course on the web. 

ZED understands that the mandate is time-sensitive. It’s getting down to crunch time for the ELD Mandate, and we know you need a device that gets up and running as quickly as possible. That is why ZED is one of the few ELDs that is truly plug-and-play: Simply plug the Bluetooth adaptor into your truck’s OBD port, download our mobile app, and be totally compliant within a matter of minutes. The basic four-step quick start process is detailed right on the back of the box. We understand waiting until the last minute in hopes that the ELD mandate would just go away, but it’s here to stay. And if you choose to wait any longer, you should definitely keep ZED in mind.
