How to achieve ELD compliance with Frotcom?
In December 2015, the USA’s Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) published its final ELD mandate (Electronic Logging Device).
For more than 3 million American truck drivers who log their hours, the ELD certified electronic logging devices will become the rule, after December 18, 2017.
This move, designed to accurately track, manage and share Records Of Duty Status (RODS) data, aims to save time for fleet managers, fleet owners and drivers. It will make their life easier without the need to spend so much time doing administrative work. According to the FMCSA, ELD drivers were previously spending over 20 hours every year on paperwork. That’s about 15 minutes per workday.
ELD mandate compliance with Frotcom
Frotcom offers ELD based on Garmin’s best in the class device: the fleet series. In the near future, Frotcom’s ELD will come with other great tools such as Driver Vehicle Inspection Report (DVIR) and
International Fuel Tax Agreement (IFTA).
You can also use Frotcom to dispatch jobs and communicate with drivers, collect forms and navigate your drivers along optimized routes.
To maximize efficiency, you need to be able to assign new tasks and reroute drivers in the field. Working out whether drivers have enough “time left” to complete tasks can be difficult; miscalculations can lead to violations and heavy fines. Conversely, they can leave drivers and vehicles in downtime, unnecessarily.
Frotcom is there to simplify the management of driving times within the new ELD regulated limits, making it easy to decide which driver can be assigned to a new task, without risking violations and resulting fines.
