Navigating mandates and maintenance.


Maintaining Accurate, FMCSA-compliant Logs.

Navigating the government’s Hours of Service regulations can be challenging. Choosing an electronic logging solution certified by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration can remove much of the guesswork.

FMCSA Hours of Service

What’s the Impact if You’re Not Compliant?

Here are a few questions to consider:

Are you certain your fleet uses a fully FMCSA-certified Electronic Logging Device (ELD)?
Do you know that you are responsible if your solution doesn’t function as a fully certified ELD?
Are your drivers trained to properly use it?
Do you count on your drivers to accurately log their Hours of Service?
Ever had a driver placed Out of Service or penalized for HOS violations, whether because of your driver or your device?
Can your vendor support the new HOS rules that went into effect on Sept. 29, 2020?

The Solution to Compliance:

Simplified methods for tracking Hours of Service and DVIR will ensure that your employees can comply with regulations and keep their vehicles in top working condition. Drivers also need the right tools to quickly and accurately deal with inspections, while dispatchers require HOS data that helps them select the right driver and vehicle for a job.

Incomplete Maintenance Records.

What percentage of your fleet’s maintenance reports leave you with more questions than answers? These gaps can leave you without any real insights into the health of your vehicles. A digital solution can ensure that you get the information you need to keep your fleet on the road so you can help the people who rely on you.

Maintenance Logs

What’s the Impact of Incomplete Maintenance Records?

Here are a few questions to consider:

Do your vehicles frequently need unscheduled maintenance?
Are your vehicles’ “Check Engine” lights often on?
Do your drivers procrastinate on routine maintenance?
Do you need or use a DOT-compliant DVIR solution?
Are you still using a paper DVIR solution?

Would you like to automatically alert your maintenance team of vehicle defects?

The Solution to Maintenance:

Tracking vehicle maintenance isn’t an easy task. A digital solution can pull all the insights you need into one place accessible from anywhere. Being able to configure automatic maintenance reports, take and share photos of vehicle defects with a mobile device, and customize electronic DVIR forms will save time and improve accuracy.

Difficult-to-use Solutions.

If your solutions aren’t easy to use, employees will find every excuse to procrastinate. Or they won’t use your solution at all. A user-friendly interface on familiar devices can prevent this issue.

ELD Solutions Hard to Use

What’s the Impact of Solutions that Aren’t User Friendly?

Here are a few questions to consider:

Do your drivers do the bare minimum for Daily Vehicle Inspection Reports (DVIRs)?
Can your drivers edit HOS logs from their mobile device?
Do drivers often leave out information?
Is your solution digital, or do you still rely on paper?
Do your drivers use mobile devices?
Can your solution support cross-border logs for Mexico?

The Solution to User-Friendly Devices:

Your drivers shoulder the huge responsibility of balancing safety with promptness. Easy-to-use solutions on their own devices flatten their learning curve. Multi-lingual support, speech to text, and onboard user guides can make the administrative part of their duties easier.

Monitoring Reefer Temperatures.

There’s a lot riding on the contents of any refrigerated trailer. The Food Safety Modernization Act requires fleet operators transporting food to have a temperature monitoring system. This safeguards public health by ensuring that contents arrive fresh – and also ensures that the transport company doesn’t lose money by delivering spoiled goods. Non-compliant fleet operators can face significant fines.

FSMA Temperature Monitoring

What’s the Impact of Inaccurate Reefer Temperature Readings?

Here are a few questions to consider:

Do you need to know the temperature of your reefers remotely?
Do you automatically receive temperature alerts if your contents rise or fall below certain thresholds?
Do you know the location of all your trailers at any given time?

The Solution to Temperature Monitoring:

Sensors in your reefer trailers can help you ensure that loads stay at the ideal temperature. You also need a solution that can alert you when the reefer temperature exceeds the thresholds you set. It also helps to have a tracking system that can locate trailers remotely.
