Honeywell announced that its suite of software solutions for truck drivers is helping transportation and logistics providers and drivers comply with US federal safety mandates that go into effect in December 2017.
The company has extended its driver-focused enterprise software solution to enable truck drivers to easily and quickly complete electronic logs and conduct vehicle inspections using a single mobile device. The software runs on Android-based devices, including Honeywell’s mobile computers, and helps fleets enhance their safety culture, reduce violations and embed accuracy into work processes.
This solution, developed in collaboration with fleet management solutions provider Omnitracs, is being deployed by less-than-truckload providers Holland and Reddaway.
“These federal regulations, which are designed to promote safety on the road, require trucking companies to implement new compliance solutions,” said Taylor Smith, president of Honeywell’s Workflow Solutions business. “Honeywell’s solution makes compliance much easier for logistics providers by seamlessly integrating into drivers’ workflow processes to create a streamlined and simplified user experience.”
Honeywell offers an integrated system that runs on a single mobile device and guides drivers through the various workflows they complete throughout the day. In addition to completing electronic logs, truck drivers can use Honeywell’s solution to communicate with dispatch, review routes and capture signatures for proof-of-delivery.
The US Department of Transportation electronic logging device (ELD) rules will require most motor carriers’ truck drivers to electronically document hours of service. This mandate is intended to keep both truckers and other drivers on the road safe by monitoring and limiting the amount of time drivers can operate their vehicles.
