Lexington, S.C.-based Southeastern Freight Lines plans to deploy electronic driver logs as a way of automating Department of Transportation Hours of Service record keeping and improve efficiency in its operations.

The regional less-than-truckload carrier will use electronic logs from Innovative Software Engineering, which provides a mobile driver interface, a web interface and an adaptable communications channel. The mobile interface automatically records driving status, calculates available driving time and notifies the driver of his compliance status. The mobile touch-screen display stores the data for up to eight days for roadside inspection and team drivers are fully supported.

In addition, the web interface allows for viewing, editing and printing driver logs. Other reporting features include driver time, mileage summaries, real-time driver availability, violations and log edit auditing. The ISE communications channel supports cellular, Wi-Fi and satellite networks.

"We chose ISE Electronic Driver Logs for its ease of use, FMCSA compliance and off-the-shelf features, which allowed for quick implementation using our existing hardware," said Braxton Vick, senior vice president, Southeastern Freight Lines.
