While some truck carriers or companies still employ paper log books to monitor their drivers’ time and efficiency, many have embraced new technology made the soon-to-be-mandatory switch to electronic logging devices (ELDs) or eLogs. Going electronic offers new opportunities to become more efficient and improve your service for customers, although, this new technology also brings additional responsibilities for compliance. It’s important to know how to use these devices and what sort of regulations govern their use.

It can be confusing and difficult to transition to this new way of logging Hours Of Service (HOS). We can help make the transition a smooth one and improve your operations going forward by providing valuable services such as:

Get Hours of Service Reviews to Ensure You Remain in Compliance
One reason for using ELDs and eLogs? Ensuring each of your drivers is staying within hours of service regulations set by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. You don’t want an inaccurate log getting you in trouble with FMCSA. You also want to ensure your records are correct so you don’t cost your company or your clients unnecessary time from violations or uncertainty over how many more hours a driver can go. ELDs and eLogs make it easy to track this information if you know how to go about it.
Operating Authority Services can also use eLogs and ELDs for DQ, or driver qualification files. Keeping these files current and maintaining the most up-to-date information ensures you get the best possible representation on the road and have information readily available if requested.
