Electronic logging devices increase safety as well as being required for compliance. Connected Vehicles can help you with solutions to meet legislative requirements, reduce administration time and costs, plus maintain accurate logs.
Reminders to operators to log in and out of their driver's log, real-time reporting and alerts for hours of service help ensure compliance. Drivers who are low or out of hours are immediately notified, and are alerted to unassign their truck when leaving. They are also notified if they miss a vehicle inspection. Even warnings on interrupting shift and cycle resets are automated. Your fleet manager will be able to monitor unassigned logs and make necessary annotations in bulk. A simple click can annotate logs or adjust availability calculations.
Comprehensive workflows to help drivers certify logs, claim unassigned driving, complete trip inspections, and complete other compliance tasks. Customizable and automated alerts, reminders, notifications, and reporting helps you ensure your business is fully compliant throughout all levels of the organization. Workflows and documentation are hassle-free and more effective, with less administration time.
All system updates are automatic and wireless, synching automatically. There is also offline support when out of cellular coverage.
The U.S. Department of Transportation Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration requires that drivers keep electronic logs as part of the ELD rule requirements. These devices can be self-certified by manufacturers south of the border. In Canada, ELDs must be third-party certified. For cross-border compliance, our third-party certified device solutions enable you to work in both countries seamlessly. ELDs must use telematic or local electronic data transfer methods with an ELD output file that can be transferred as required by an authorized safety official.
For E-log mandate, or ELD Final Rule, Records of Duty Status, and Canadian ELD mandate compliance, drivers of commercial motor vehicles must use electronic logging devices to automatically record and transmit ELD data, including driver and vehicle data like driving time, location, date, time, vehicle miles, vehicle motion, engine power status, and engine hours every hour.
