ORLANDO - Lytx Rair has added new functionality to manage fleet hours of service and safety accountability, compliance to reduce the risk of violations.

The company made the annoucement during the American Trucking Associaitons' annual Management Conference and Exhibition in Florida.

Lytx Rair compliance services integrate with nearly every major ELD, according to the company, to consume and audit log data. Rair can validate electronic and paper logs with events and supporting documentation against the driver’s duty status.

The log falsification checks are validated using data from fuel cards, GPS, EZPass, roadside inspections, accidents and other data points. The information provides a comprehensive audit of all driver logs, with a precise analysis of documentation gaps and flags for falsified, incomplete, or inaccurate logs.

“Lytx’s expertise in taking huge volumes of data and translating it into the actionable insights that will have the biggest and most positive impact on drivers’ performance,” said Rick Walters, Lytx Rair general manager. “The powerful new Rair workspace presents those insights in an ‘at-a-glance’ dashboard of a driver’s compliance status and helps safety and compliance managers prioritize their actions to reduce risk.”

To prepare for the ELD mandate, Rair has updated its services to meet the Department of Transportation’s new data requirements. Additionally, Rair’s ELD integrations have been updated to support the ingest of the new data points to ensure clients can comply with the new rules once they are enacted. The added functionality and enhancements can further enable the cross-referencing of hours of service with supporting documentation and log validation to pinpoint trouble spots.

The updated RAIR workspace dashboard shows at a glance:

  • Hours-of-service violation statistics, quickly answering whether they’re trending upward or downward, how they are performing against specific HOS rules, and how violations are influencing CSA scores.
  • CSA Group BASIC scores, showing the CSA percentile for the associated DOT number in each of the 7 BASICS compared to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) intervention threshold for each BASIC. This allows users to evaluate how performance is trending and see what violation types contribute the most to the score.
  • Group ranking, quickly identifying which terminals/locations are struggling with HOS or CSA violations, enabling the safety and compliance manager to detect and address the groups or locations that are having the biggest impact on both risk and compliance.
  • Driver ranking, quickly revealing which drivers are generating HOS or CSA violations, enabling the safety and compliance manager to work with the drivers who are having the biggest impact on both risk and compliance.
  • Location Ranking, enabling the safety and compliance manager to view a roll up of performance trends by a specific location.

Rair accesses the FMCSA portal daily and the Motor Carrier Management Information System (MCMIS) database monthly to capture all violations so the Rair workspace dashboard always reflects the most current information available.

“Rair can help ensure a smooth and seamless transition as companies move from paper to electronic logs,” said Walters. “Rair will continue to offer a robust paper logs and timecard auditing solution for those companies who continue to have that need or who are exempt from the ELD mandate.”

The ready-for-ELD mandate Rair service will be available in December prior to the mandate going into effect.
