Omnitracs Data Sharing Agreement

Airlines “sign a separate agreement that allows us to use the data they have for these services,” says Evans. If a carrier doesn`t make up its mind, “we don`t pass on the driver`s data,” he says. Konexial`s terms of use allow for the sharing or sale of aggregated anonymous data, although the company does not currently do so. Users cannot opt out of anonymous data transmission to aggregation with geotab, part of the reason why the company attaches so much importance to making any third-party transmission a value to customers. Although this is not the case today, Mr. Schlimm could not rule out that access to different products based on aggregated user data would be sold in the future. J.J. Keller`s encompass ELD terms of use suggest that data sharing could include “a third-party company that serves us as a service,” says Paul Schwartz, vice president of technology solutions. “However, we currently do not use any third parties for our ELD or Encompass services.” KeepTruckin has applications that work in coordination with third-party systems – transportation management software providers, fuel card providers, security advisors and an insurer. Users agree to share data with them on an opt-in basis, which is necessary if they want to use the apps. Some ELD providers – such as conexial with My20 ELD, Blue Ink technology with bit and Garmin with eLog – confirm that the data is not disclosed or used outdoors outside of what is needed for the product. Other companies are more liberal with their terms of use. The COVID 19 pandemic highlighted the important role of commercial drivers, as the HGV sector has played a major role in ensuring the availability of critical medical equipment and equipment and essential consumer goods.

Given the shortage of qualified drivers and high turnover rates, the creation and maintenance of a favourable driving experience (DX) is essential to the success of fleets. However, recent advances in transportation technology have led to a multitude of devices and sensors, the need for multiple mobile connections, isolated data flows that cause redundancies and other inefficiencies due to different embedded systems and back-offices that have all complicated the DX.
