What’s the advantage of an ELD with a built-in printer?


The answer is easy: roadside inspections.

The ‘log book style’ printout is familiar to compliance officers. They can read and understand it quickly, and that means faster inspections for Drivers. That’s why VDO RoadLog was designed with a built-in printer that requires no printer maintenance and no ink.

ELD solutions that don’t have a printer require data transfer and/or data display and data interpretation that the compliance officer may or may not be familiar with. If a Driver has to wait while the officer becomes familiar with the data display or the technology, it can make for long delays at the inspection stop.

With a variety of new electronic log systems now out on the market, technology compatibility can be an obstacle when supplying HOS data at a roadside inspection. There’s no chance of incompatible technology when you can hand over a paper printout with a traditional log book grid format.

In addition to helping drivers get through inspections quicker, RoadLog paper printouts have added benefits back at the office. RoadLog Daily Log print outs can provide a back up to HOS electronic records and Supporting Document printouts such as fuel receipts, meal receipts and vehicle wash receipts.

No other on-board printer can match the ease and convenience of RoadLog’s built-in thermal printer – which, since it’s a thermal device, never needs ink!
