Umpqua Dairy Adopts EROAD

All-in-one IFTA and ELD solutions chosen to meet compliance, operational and driver needs in 72 trucks based at eight locations  

Portland, Oregon – February 8, 2017 – EROAD, a global technology provider of fleet management, electronic tax reporting and ELD compliance solutions for the transportation industry, today announced that Umpqua Dairy is implementing its IFTA Electronic Tax Management and ELD solutions on all company vehicles.

“We’ve selected EROAD for our operation and our fleet of 72 trucks because they offer solutions that will keep us in compliance and are easy for our administrative staff and drivers to use,” said Chuck Fuller, transportation manager at Umpqua Dairy. “We decided to switch to EROAD because we were not satisfied with our previous providers. With EROAD’s one-click system we’ll have IFTA reporting and ELD compliance solutions without all the paperwork and hours that were involved before. Other capabilities will include our Oregon state monthly PUC tax report, where we expect noticeable savings with geo-fencing so we don’t pay any tax on exempt miles.”

Roseburg, Oregon-based Umpqua Dairy is a family-owned manufacturer of a variety of fresh dairy and juice products as well as a wholesale distributor of frozen foods and other refrigerated items to grocery stores, restaurants, hospitals and schools. An iconic Oregon company, Umpqua Dairy operates from eight Distribution Depots in Oregon and supplies regional distributors throughout the Northwest.

A single device, EROAD’s IFTA Electronic Tax Management and ELD solutions will be installed in Umpqua Dairy trucks at eight locations beginning early next month. EROAD will also provide training for office staff and drivers.

“We are very pleased that Umpqua Dairy has chosen our Fuel Tax and Electronic Logging Device solutions to meet its business and driver needs,” said Paul Clark, director of sales at EROAD. “We look forward to adding them to our list of growing customers.”

EROAD’s user-friendly solutions are designed to meet compliance, operational and driver needs, both in-vehicle and through a secure web portal. Verified by an independent engineering firm, EROAD’s compliant and highly accurate ELD features an intuitive touchscreen device with simple display and transfer capabilities for roadside enforcement.
