Veriha Trucking Behind The Scenes
Veriha Trucking is a Midwest based carrier with 300+ trucks and roughly 1,000 trailers. The Veriha headquarters in Marinette, Wisconsin is where hundreds of dedicated office employees call home. They contribute to behind the scenes success of Veriha trucks combing the highways nationwide.
A soggy day in late April, nestled in a suburb of Green Bay, Wisconsin, a truck driver waited patiently in his cabin, engine idle, for the ELD timer to strike 9AM. The 18-wheeler was surrounded by the Veriha headquarters. He could not exit the yard until precisely 9:03AM set to begin a cross country trek in t-minus three minutes.
Neither himself nor John Veriha, the founder of Veriha Trucking in 1978 could have anticipated the 2017 Federal ELD mandate requiring the electronic documentation of HOS. A new ELD deadline would also be coming soon in 2019 ending the grandfather period for legacy AOBRD trucks.
ELD Customer Testimonial
- Customer: Veriha Trucking
- Industry: Fleet
- Number of mounting solutions: 300+
When the FMCSA ruled that paper logs were to be replaced with e-logs, Veriha Trucking sought the help of Integrated Communications, Inc. to handle their full-scale ELD deployment with a turn-key tablet mounting solution. Veriha needed to replace each AOBRD with ELD compliant hardware in a mix of Freightliner, Kenworth and Volvo trucks. ProClip was able to provide Samsung tablet mounting solutions that were high-quality and drop tested for rugged use. Each ELD in a box included all parts necessary for FMCSA compliance.
The first part of the ELD bundle, ProClip’s Charging Tough Sleeve Holder for the Samsung Galaxy Tab E 8.0 protects the tablet while providing integrated charging and docking in the vehicle. This complete ELD bundle also included the Samsung tablet, 6-inch mounting post, Omnitracs-XRS ELD software and Sprint LTE data connection. Drivers dock the tablet using the Quick Release Power Dock (QRPD). The QRPD provides around the clock charging and allows for high volume one-handed insertion and removal of the tablet. The adjustable post and backer plate provide a sturdy base for securing the tablets to the dashboard and features a 360-degree swivel.
ELD Deployment Results
Veriha Trucking deployed the ELD mounting solutions in four locations across a 12-month period. They plan to work with Integrated Communications again when they need to order for additional tablets and trucks.
