Efficient Fleets is proud to announce the introduction of our new Electronic Logbook module for the Milo Fleet Management System. It helps commercial truck drivers comply with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s (FMCSA) Hours of Service (HOS) regulations. Our new system makes compliance with the complicated regulations easier than ever. There is no more need to maintain paper logs.
Maintaining paper logs is time consuming and full of potential error. The amount of time spent recording, storing, and retrieving paper logs can be used more productively. Potential errors are costly. Drivers and companies are both responsible for complying with the rules. Fines can be as high as $11,000 per offense and drivers can face civil penalties as high as $2,750 per offense.
The Electronic Logbook module is an affordable solution to make compliance easy and less expensive. It can help reduce the cost of compliance, storage, and record keeping.
The Electronic Logbook module requires the LMU-2700 GPS unit connected to a Garmin dezl portable navigator. It also requires the Hours of Service monthly subscription. All the data is stored on the Garmin and in the Fleet Management System.
Storing paper logs is expensive. You need a physical space to store the records and labor to record, store, and retrieve it. With the Electronic Logbooks you can eliminate those expenses.
Below is a list of features that come with the Electronic Logbooks.
- Update Driver Status on Garmin dezl
- Hours of Service Logbook Report in the Fleet Management System
- Garmin 2-way Dispatch
Hours of Service Subscription
The Hours of Service subscription is the monthly fee for the Electronic Logbook module. It starts at $25 per truck.
The Electronic Logbooks make compliance with the HOS regulations easier than ever. The driver no longer needs to record on paper his or her hours of service and driving status. The GPS unit and the Garmin dezl do all the work.
The Garmin dezl records the hours of service and status and will alert the driver in advance of potential violations.
We believe that we provide the best service possible. As part of that commitment we help you setup the Electronic Logbook module to make sure that the transition from paper logs to electronic ones is as smooth as possible.
Changing technologies is never easy. That is why we are here to help.
