Continental Announces Major Price Reduction For VDO RoadLog ELDs

Stand-alone unit competitively priced with "bring your own device" solutions.

Continental, a leading global supplier of systems, components and tires to automobile and truck manufacturers, and the manufacturer of VDO RoadLog ELD (vdoroadlog.com), has announced a major price reduction for their popular VDO RoadLog ELD and VDO RoadLog ELD Plus devices. The announcement was made by Jay McCarthy, Continental’s VDO RoadLog Marketing Manager, who noted that stand-alone, FMSCA registered VDO RoadLog ELDs can now be purchased at a cost that’s very competitive with the many BYOD ELD (bring your own device) programs currently on the market. Specific pricing information for the basic VDO RoadLog ELD and the VDO RoadLog ELD Plus is available on the VDO RoadLog website at: vdoroadlog.com.

McCarthy noted, “Our new pricing structure offers today’s truckers a very affordable and sensible option for their ELD needs. For the same price they would typically pay for an unreliable and potentially troublesome ‘bring your own device’ solution, our customers will get a dedicated, hard-wired ELD that’s FMCSA registered, performance-proven, and supported by Continental, a world leader in Electronic Logging Device technology.”

“We’ve learned that many owner operators and fleets are having difficulty maintaining mandate compliance and reporting with their BYODs and are reconsidering their decisions. We wanted to make it as easy and affordable as possible to switch to VDO RoadLog,” McCarthy added.

Customers who purchase a VDO RoadLog ELD or VDO RoadLog ELD Plus at the new price point will also be able to take advantage of ‘FlexPay by VDO RoadLog’, a special purchase program offered by Continental, which allows customers to pay off their ELD over a three-year period.

VDO RoadLog was one of the first stand-alone ELDs offered in North America, providing an affordable, simple, and secure solution for mandate compliance and reporting. VDO RoadLog ELD is offered without monthly fees for basic services. For owner operators and fleets who want advanced features, VDO RoadLog ELD Plus adds cellular connectivity for text-based messaging, driver monitoring, remote load and trip management, and enhanced fleet management capabilities for an affordable monthly fee per vehicle.
