ZED is the second ELD manufacturer to officially announce it’s pulling out of the ELD industry. The first was ONE 20 ELD.
ZED ELD, the Cummins-powered electronic logging device, will be eliminated, and users only have a few to find the next before the company pulls the plug.
In a note on its own site, ZED Connect is shutting down the ZED ELD merchandise. The company negotiated a”zero-cost” transfer agreement using Stoneridge EZ-ELD. Current ZED clients might have to go to the Stoneridge bargain as a way to move.
The business is just giving fleets a couple of days to determine what direction to go. Smaller companies will have a bit more time. Fleets have until Dec. 31 to select it. The others need to do it by mid-January as the transfer will need up to two weeks to finish. All of us have until Jan. 31, 2019, to opt into Stoneridge or another provider.
