What are Electronic Logbooks?

Electronic driver logs, or e-Logs, eliminate manual paperwork, reduce traffic violations and minimize audit risks. By automating driver logs, fleet managers have the ability to easily track vehicle mileage logs and strengthen their fleet's compliance regulations. Everything is communicated instantaneously.

Ensuring driver safety and achieving the highest compliance standards are high priorities for drivers and managers. HOS regulations help keep fatigued drivers off public roadways by placing limits on when and how long drivers should be on the road for. This reduces crashes, injuries, and fatalities related to operating commercial motor vehicles. Failure to comply can result in heavy fines, loss of license, or a fleet being stripped of its operating authority.

What is an HOS or e-Log Solution?

Hours of service (HOS) is a series of FMCSA-issued regulations that administer the driver hours of anyone operating a commercial motor vehicle for interstate or inter-province commerce. An HOS software solution fulfills this government regulation by fully automating the entry, recording, completion and storage of all required information needed for logbooks—from the driver's cab.

Btracking Garmin HOS Integration

Through Btracking's expansion technology that connects to our hardware, you can add-on a Garmin dezl 560LMT or 760LMT device for driver dispatching and HOS compliance. Btracking has combined the power of MyBtracking with Garmin dezl HOS logging to help automate processes. Drivers log their HOS and status changes on the dezl device, which tracks driver activities and provides potential violation alerts. All HOS data from these devices is available through the Btracking interface in real-time.

Compliance, Safety, Administration (CSA)

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) enforces highway safety regulations by storing all CSA incident data and making it available to the general public. Violations are tied to costly penalties that last for many years. Btracking's technology helps organizations that operate heavy commercial vehicles improve their CSA BASIC's score by:

  • Interactively coaching drivers to improve their on-road behavior
  • Minimizing driver fatigue
  • Improving vehicle maintenance: DVIR

International Fuel Tax Agreement (IFTA)

Businesses that operate heavy commercial vehicles between states must track all fuel expenses based on location and fuel type. Btracking removes the manual component of tracking each individual receipt and calculating the fuel tax amounts, helping management reduce time and improve accuracy.

Btracking HOS Benefits

  • Improved Communication. Drivers and dispatch have never been more interconnected. Fleet managers can easily plan jobs and increase fleet efficiency by viewing up-to-date driver statuses.
  • A Wealth of Data. Trusted by tens of thousands of Btracking customers, our HOS software provides up to eight days of driving data for our in-cab display.
  • Easily Integrated. The HOS software module is fully integrated with other Fleet Director components for seamless operation. Per FMCSA regulations, any electronic recorder used for HOS compliance must be connected to the vehicle's engine electronic control module (ECM). Fleet Director meets this requirement via a standard J-bus connection.

Simple. Straightforward Usage.

  • Easy Storage. Drivers can fully automate the entry and storage of all required information needed for driver logbooks.
  • Time-Saving. Time-consuming and error-prone manual logbook entries and audits are easily eliminated.
  • User-Friendly. Easy-to-use, easy-to-understand screens simplify driver workloads and facilitate rapid data entry. This HOS data is easily recorded, transmitted and displayed via Garmin unit.
  • Fast Retrieval. All relevant HOS information—such as driver identification and current status—is sent to the user's computer for storage and retrieval via a wireless network.

*These features are enabled and ready to use at no additional cost, they do require additional relays.
