Do ELDs really have an impact on your fleet’s safety? According to the U.S. Department of Transportation and Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), they do. FMCSA recently released a report evaluating the potential safety benefits of ELDs, and you can find more information and answers on their site here.
According to the report, trucks with ELDs installed had an 11.7 percent lower total crash rate and 5.1 percent lower preventable crash rate than trucks without ELDs installed. Additionally, the trucks with ELDs had a 53 percent reduction in hours of service (HOS) violations.
The OneView ELD solution allows you to keep track of hours of service electronically on an easy-to-use platform.
In addition to capturing and storing HOS data, OneView can be used to do the following:
- Retrieve an Electronic driver vehicle inspection report (EDVIR): The driver’s tablet can be removed from the cab during roadside inspections and the software is easy to navigate and read by inspectors.
- Manage fuel purchase forms: Drivers quickly and easily capture and store fuel purchases electronically. International Fuel Tax Agreement (IFTA) reporting is automated, saving office staff time, while reducing errors and improving accuracy.
- Capture and store documents electronically: OneView features image capturing that makes documents easy to store electronically—eliminating paperwork.
- Send/receive messages safely: Safely keep in touch with your drivers. The OneView messaging system features an auto-lock screen that allows dispatchers to communicate with drivers while they are stopped.
