Banyan’s Freight Podcast – Episode 02

By: Lance Healy

The ELD Mandate stole the spotlight in 2017. How will this contentious issue really impact the industry? In our latest podcast, Co-Founder and Chief Innovation Officer Lance Healy and SVP of Software Development Will Lazzaro discuss some interesting possibilities, like truckers charging by the hour vs. by the minute, and some drivers “jailbreaking” their devices. The mandate goes into effect Dec. 18 – you don’t want to miss this one!
