How Fleet Software Automates IFTA Reports
The International Fuel Tax Agreement (or IFTA) is an agreement to simplify the reporting of fuel use by motor carriers that operate in more than one jurisdiction. While the reporting is required and overall beneficial, the process of manually gathering information for IFTA paperwork can be a headache to endure.
Sifting through hand-written driver logs to manually fill out paperwork consumes the time of office staff and can even result in reporting inaccuracies. Finding out how many miles were driven in each state per vehicle and the costs for it all requires a lot of paperwork. While necessary, most people dread going through this process and have other primary responsibilities that must be completed on top of filling out these reports.
To increase efficiency and do away with this time-consuming and manual process, organizations are turning to GPS tracking software to automate IFTA reporting.
