Uber Freight partners with Samsara to offer discounted ELDs and fleet management software

February 26 / Global

For carriers large and small, complying with the national electronic logging device (ELD) mandate comes with numerous fixed costs that can quickly add up. When it comes to running a business, ELD equipment and accompanying service costs can make it harder for fleet owners to scale and expand their operations.

At Uber Freight, our goal has always been to enable carriers of all sizes to seamlessly run and grow their businesses. We’re partnering with Samsara, a leader in ELD and fleet management solutions, to help carriers with 6 or more trucks lower their overhead costs and manage their fleets more efficiently. 

“We’re excited to bring Samsara’s easy-to-use platform to even more carriers across the country,“ said Iain Denham, Senior Director of Global Partner Sales at Samsara. “With a seamless integration between Samsara and Uber Freight, carriers and shippers will benefit from improved visibility and more efficient load matching.”

With this partnership, eligible carriers that use Uber Freight will receive significant discounts on Samsara’s Vehicle Gateway (VG34) and Asset Gateway (AG24) when they agree to share telemetry data with Uber Freight. We’re offering a $50 discount per Samsara Vehicle Gateway (VG34), and a $20 discount per Samsara Asset Gateway (AG24), with a maximum discount of $25,000 under this program.

Samsara Vehicle Gateway (VG34) is an FMCSA-approved ELD that will give carriers real-time GPS tracking, WiFi hotspot connectivity, streamlined HOS logging, among other capabilities. Beyond compliance, VG34s can be used in tandem with Samsara AI dash cams for driver safety, coaching, and exoneration. Samsara Asset Gateway (AG24) is separately attachable to trailers to provide continuous visibility into load location, particularly valuable for carriers who handle drop-and-hook freight.
