I have been reading articles about all the ways the ELD providers have to make money from the data collected from us. Better read and understand the user agreement.

It’s true, that all your company secrets are for sale now, your shippers, your receivers the distance between them, the way you dispatch your drivers, the amount of time you spend on the docks, all the information your competitor needs to cut your rate, is now available for purchase, thanks to ELD’s. Brokers are no longer protected by contracts with carriers, since the Broker has no control over the data collected by the ELD, or who your provider sells it to. I warned folks this was coming quite awhile ago, just like I warned folks a trade war was coming before trump was even elected. Funny how that turned out.
