Fleet Compliance Covered
How does DIRECTOR track compliance?
With DIRECTOR, everything is connected to a single electronic platform. No stone is left unturned. DIRECTOR tracks Hours of Service (HOS) in line with the electronic logging device (ELD) Final Rule. It also tracks driver vehicle inspection reports (DVIR) and International Fuel Tax Agreement (IFTA) reporting to facilitate report filing. Finally, DIRECTOR tracks many criteria that influence a carrier’s Compliance, Safety, Accountability (CSA) score, including vehicle maintenance, unsafe driving, and HOS.
WHY IS ELECTRONIC COMPLIANCE BETTER?
Electronic compliance takes tedious paperwork out of the equation. Managers can reliably meet Hours of Service (HOS) requirements, driver vehicle inspection reports (DVIR) and fuel tax requirements all in one portal. Electronic compliance also takes work off a driver’s plate, giving managers less to oversee and drivers more time to focus on the road.
Helping Your Drivers
Why do drivers like electronic compliance?
For years, drivers have tracked their working hours on paper. It is a time-consuming process requiring drivers to stop their tasks for the day and fax their paper logs from a rest stop. The paper logging process also creates space for negative coercion from supervisors, a major issue that has caused overwork and driver fatigue. Electronic compliance provides drivers with a safe and reliable tool to stay compliant with federal regulations. ELDs instantly track working hours as soon as a driver logs into the device. If a driver is approaching the end of a shift, the ELD will notify the driver with an audible and visual warning. Fleet managers can also verify working hours through the ECM data collected in DIRECTOR’s HOS solution.
How does this system benefit business?
Tracking federal compliance through a trusted system represents a commitment to better fleet management. The benefits trickle down to all aspects of business. From driver safety, to fuel usage and cutting inefficiencies, companies can rely on a dedicated electronic compliance solution that meets federal mandates while encouraging metrics that lead to higher profit.
