Transportation solution helps fleets comply with FMCSA mandate
Spireon Inc., Irvine, Calif., announced a new FleetLocate Compliance solution designed to help fleets of all sizes comply with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s (FMCSA) electronic logging device (ELD) mandate, which will take effect Dec. 18.
Powered by Gorilla Safety, Houston, Texas, FleetLocate Compliance makes it easy for fleet managers to oversee driver hours in accordance with the new regulatory requirements.
FleetLocate offers flexible configuration options to accommodate mixed fleets of different vehicle types, such as trucks that need to track hours of service (HOS) and vans or cars that don’t. FleetLocate can also utilize data from onboard telematics, as well as sensor data from trailers, containers and other mobile assets, giving fleet managers complete visibility over their entire fleet with one simple, affordable application.
The system also provides early warnings of potential violations in real time, so managers may adjust schedules as needed. Additionally, FleetLocate Compliance provides alerts on drivers who began a trip without completing the required vehicle inspections.
FleetLocate Compliance includes the FleetLocate Shift mobile app for drivers, providing a convenient way to maintain record of duty logs and vehicle inspection reports from a smartphone, tablet or rugged handheld device.
