T-Mobile Upgrades SyncUP FLEET to Help Businesses Meet New Federal Safety Mandate

For a limited time, get a SyncUP FLEET device on us for every line
you activate!

BELLEVUE, Wash.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The countdown is on – starting December 18, a new federal “Hours of
Service” (HOS) regulation will require an estimated two million
commercial motor vehicle operators to measure and report their time on
the road using an Electronic Logging Device (ELD). Today, T-Mobile
added a new Hours of Service feature to SyncUP FLEET and announced the
Un-carrier’s latest IoT product is now certified as an ELD by the
Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration to help businesses comply
with the new regulation. Plus, for a limited time, for every SyncUP
FLEET line you activate, you’ll get a SyncUP Fleet device at no cost,
via 24 monthly bill credits ($72 retail value per device).

“Complying with this new regulation is expected to cost businesses
almost a billion dollars every year, but the Un-carrier is making
it easier and more affordable with SyncUP FLEET,” said Mike Sievert,
Chief Operating Officer for T-Mobile. “This is yet another way the
Un-carrier is taking on the Internet of Things … with an unstoppable
nationwide network and a family of incredibly popular T-Mobile-branded
IoT products.”

Every year, commercial drivers in the U.S. cover more than 140 billion
miles on the road, with many still tracking their miles by hand. The new
HOS regulation aims to increase road safety by limiting how long
commercial vehicle operators can drive in one stretch and specifying
mandatory breaks, time off and duty cycles.

SyncUP FLEET now makes it easier for drivers to log all those miles,
automatically recording them in a digital logbook in the SyncUP FLEET
cloud. Managers can then use that info to improve efficiencies and cut

In addition to giving businesses the data they need to comply with the
HOS mandate, SyncUP FLEET can help businesses:

  • Save Time: Fleet managers can quickly get a bird’s eye
    view of their entire fleet of vehicles and make decisions with reports
    on traffic delays, delivery arrival times, driver time in location,
    and more.
  • Cut Costs: Businesses can help cut fuel consumption by
    analyzing driver routes and idle time, while regular vehicle
    maintenance notifications can help prevent costly repairs with
    scheduled reports, emails or alerts.
  • Increase Driver Productivity: Customers can track the
    location of their vehicles to improve driver productivity and improve
    driving habits with regular risk and safety reports.

SyncUP FLEET is the second product in T-Mobile’s SyncUP family and was
designed to deliver low-cost fleet management for businesses of all
sizes – all without the carriers’ sticky annual service contracts.

SyncUP FLEET is regularly just $3 per month on T-Mobile’s interest-free
24-month equipment installment plan (EIP) with a $15 per month service
plan per vehicle, but for a limited time, get a free SyncUP FLEET device
for every line you activate. And through the end of March 2018, the HOS
feature is included at no cost as well. Starting April 1, 2018, the HOS
feature will be $5 per month per vehicle.

Customers can add the HOS feature today on their My
