Case Study

Sound Delivery Service uses EROAD to streamline mileage and fuel tax reporting, and improve driver management and HOS compliance.


To manage compliance with Driver Hours of Service, vehicle inspections, and fuel and mileage tax reporting for its diversified flatbed hauling operation, Sound Delivery Service required a complete solution. Earlier ELD, communications and management solutions adopted by the company did not provide the capabilities it needed or fit with its business model.


After evaluating several alternatives, in early 2018 Sound Delivery Service adopted EROAD TotalFleet and the company’s Electronic Logging Device (ELD) for its 20 truck fleet.

EROAD TotalFleet provides Sound Delivery Service with tax, compliance and operational performance solutions. Included are a 100% compliant ELD for driver Hours of Service recordkeeping on an in-vehicle device with automatic over the air updates.

The EROAD Electronic Tax Management solution provides recordkeeping and advanced reporting for IFTA, IRP, Oregon WMT, ODOT and Oregon RUAF filing.

Safety and compliance features of EROAD TotalFleet include the Inspect DVIR – In-vehicle system and a variety of driver reporting tools.

Fleet management capabilities offered by EROAD include messaging and fleet tracking and geofencing, as well as historical and daily activity, traffic, truck and satellite mapping, and fuel management. Fuel efficiency, usage, exception and optimization reports for on-and off-highway operations and service and vehicle maintenance reporting are available as well.


EROAD TotalFleet and ELD have proven to be the perfect fit for the business model at Sound Delivery Service. The easy to use solutions have streamlined fuel and mileage tax reporting, and driver management and compliance for the company. Drivers of all ages at Sound Delivery Service are finding EROAD technology simple to learn, including the Inspect DVIR solution for vehicle inspections.

“EROAD is the perfect fit for our business. Their TotalFleet and ELD solutions are easy to learn and have streamlined our mileage and fuel tax reporting, and driver management and compliance with federal, state and local regulatory requirements that pertain to safety and transportation. As we continue to adopt all of the EROAD system’s capabilities we anticipate realizing additional benefits and a faster return on our investment.”
