Central Freight Lines of Waco, Texas Selects Maven Machines for ELD Compliance

Maven Machines, a leader in fleet management and mobile telematics, announces that Central Freight Lines has selected Maven ELD as the new compliance solution for its fleet. Central Freight Line’s network consists of 80 terminals from Miami to Los Angeles across the southern belt. Central Freight Lines, identified as a top-twenty carrier in the LTL industry by Logistics Management, selected Maven’s next-generation mobile-cloud solution as it looks to the future of fleet management, telematics, and driver safety.

Maven ELD unifies fleet management by integrating compliance, telematics, and safety on a single mobile device paired with a plug-n-play vehicle data adapter (VDA). Maven Machines’ reimagined HOS experience is differentiated by:

  • Large buttons and a colorful duty-status display that veers away from the dense line-graph view of paper logs
  • Driver-friendly one-touch access to all information
  • Automatic suggested notes that are context-aware
  • Pre-warning of violations
  • A Smart to-do list that assists drivers in maintaining compliance
  • Multiple safety features, including verbal feedback for braking and speeding.

“We tested many ELD systems, and the Maven ELD stood out as the technology of the future,” said Don Orr, CEO of Central Freight Lines. “We initially used them for California Labor Law compliance. Our positive experience with their design process, development speed, and quality of technology led us to standardize our fleet on Maven ELD,” Orr added. “It installs faster and is easier for our drivers and managers to use.”

“Central Freight Lines has over 90 years of trucking experience, and Maven is proud to support their long-held mission to lead the LTL industry in both safety and customer satisfaction,” said Avi Geller, CEO of Maven Machines. “Central Freight’s drivers, especially those in California, may have to manage up to six duty status timers at once to meet compliance requirements between California Labor Laws and Federal Hours of Service (HOS) and ELD rules. This is a clear opportunity for software to streamline a driver’s daily workload,” continued Geller. “The near-complete adoption rate of Maven ELD by Central Freight drivers confirms the ease of use of our mobile technology and their immediate productivity gains.”
