J.J. Keller and Associates developed a method for allowing fleets to track hours of service data for multiple drivers on a single device within the J.J. Keller Encompass System.
With the new functionality, multiple mobile users can share a common device, reducing the cost to fleets and recurring monthly expenses to procuring, supporting and maintaining multiple devices.
The new functionality is particularly useful to industries with drivers who frequently transition from vehicle to vehicle, including hyrail, oil and gas, logging, utility and construction, according to J.J. Keller.
J.J. Keller has also expanded its electronic logging system to include the construction Hours of Service rule set. For drivers whose primary role is to maintain the supply of construction equipment, construction maintenance vehicles, or pavement materials to and from an active construction site, this exemption allows a 24-hour restart instead of 34 hours.
“Construction companies understand their business isn’t like over-the-road truck operations. That’s why they expect a flexible and compliant Hours of Service solution from their ELog provider that also takes advantage of operational efficiencies in line with FMCSA rules,” said Tom Bray, senior transportation editor for J. J. Keller. “Expanding the number of rule sets in our electronic logging system allows us to support the compliant use of exemptions by drivers in each specific segment of the industry.”
