The GPS tracking and fleet management provider—Teletrac Navman announces partnership with Garmin to deliver new in-cab tablet solution.

Trucking and Private Fleet gives importance to the quality of life through constantly monitoring route efficiency, delivery deadlines, safety and compliance. Teletrac Navman Drive app enables drivers and users to target their task of managing communication, compliance and other logical aspects. In addition, the app also helps in slashing time consumption by allowing operators to manually log book entries using electronic driver E-log feature.  E-Log streamlines the process of entering, coding, completing and storing all information for logbooks directly using in-cab solution.

Our customers rely on us to keep them compliant, especially now that the FMCSA Electronic Logging Device (ELD) Final Rule has been officially published. Fleet operations need a trusted in-cab solution to provide Records of Duty Status (RODS)," says Sid Nair, Sr. Director Transport & Compliance, Teletrac Navman.
