Dobler And Sons

By choosing a more comprehensive fleet management solution to ensure compliance with the recent ELD mandate, Dobler & Sons has realized additional benefits to the way it manages it’s fleet and team of drivers.

Dobler & Sons produces and transports conventional and organic baby spinach and spring mix from the field, to processing and the final customer. While many agriculture operations are exempt from the ELD mandate, Dobler & Sons drivers travel across state lines and often exceed the distance limits required to receive ELD exemptions. In addition, their drivers were spending approximately 40 minutes per day on reporting using paper logs, and when vehicle repairs were identified from driver inspections, the requests were often not documented properly resulting in repairs not being completed in a timely manner.
