Verizon, J.J. Keller Partner to Create Fleet Management Device

Verizon Networkfleet and J.J. Keller said they have partnered to create a GPS-enabled fleet management device for regional and longhaul trucking.

The Verizon device will run on J.J. Keller’s Encompass software and manage hours-of-service compliance and driver inspection reports, as well as fuel taxes, according to the companies.

“Due to increased regulatory scrutiny aimed at keeping the roads safer — including a potential regulation by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration requiring electronic logging of drivers’ hours of service — we recognized that the time was right to introduce a comprehensive and cost-effective compliance solution based on telematics,” Verizon Networkfleet  general manager Joshua Haims said in a statement.

The device, available later this year, will be able to transfer data to the J.J Keller mobile app.
