One20 to end ELD operations

Truck drivers, who have been using One20’s F-ELD to comply with the electronic logging device mandate, will soon need to find an alternative provider.

One20 has announced it will cease operations on June 18.

“Your One20 apps (One20 maps, My One20 and One20 F-ELD) will not continue to work,” the company posted on its website. “We won’t be doing any updates or offering any support. We’ll miss you and hope that you all continue to support each other the way you always have. Who knows, maybe we’ll meet again down the road.”

Land Line’s attempts to reach One20 for comment on Monday, May 21 were unsuccessful.

On May 17, TruckThat Holdings announced in a news release that it had acquired several One20 entities. The acquisition, which was for an undisclosed amount, included Online Tire MN (operating as One20 Tire), One20 BNK, One20 Strong, One20 Trucking, CLS Developments and TruckThat.

Christian Schenk, who was the president and CEO of One20, is also the founder and CEO of TruckThat.

“The consolidation of companies will set up TruckThat Holdings for more sustainable growth, create a unified member experience, increase operational efficiencies, and offer more benefits and services under one organization than any other well-established trucking community,” Schenk said in a news release.

One20 launched the F-ELD product in 2017 and made a splash by offering free beer to truck drivers at the Mid-America Trucking Show in Louisville, Ky. The company also was known for its edgy advertising campaign, which included images of a hand holding up a middle finger next to the words “We can’t put our finger on it. But the ELD mandate just doesn’t feel right.”

In February 2017, Rand McNally filed a lawsuit that accused One20 of defamation and orchestrating “fake” Twitter accounts to make customers believe the longtime company was going bankrupt. The lawsuit, which was set for trial in 2019, also specifically named Schenk.

Some of the advertisements posted on the One20 website included a photo of a Rand McNally device with the header “Is your nav provider going bankrupt? Don’t get stuck without a warranty!”

One20 contended that the statements highlighted in Rand McNally’s complaint didn’t meet the requirements of defamation.
