Web-based log auditing system

With new FMCSA regulations that allow inspectors to request GPS data for drivers whenever an audit of a GPS-equipped vehicle is conducted, it's become more important than ever for fleets to ensure their drivers remain in compliance. But, the old way of manually auditing GPS logs is time-consuming — it can take as much as four hours or more to audit 30 days of GPS history against the logs of a single driver, according to solutions provider Rair, and the process is not cost-effective.

Rair said that's why it has introduced a web-based solution that checks a driver's record of duty status and immediately compares that to the GPS polling history, significantly cutting time, cost and improving compliance.

“We're receiving numerous inquires about Rair's automated process for verifying log accuracy with GPS,” said Henry M. Goldberg, president. “Companies are trying to find ways to identify drivers with suspicious log activity. Many of these companies have subscribed to the new service. Rair's new process can identify problems within 24 hours of receipt of logs and notify the company of any suspicious activity. We are comparing millions of data points against driver logs each month.”

The system imports a carrier's GPS history and checks that information against the driver's log for suspicious events such as no driving time on the log, no driving during the event, not enough driving time, speed violations and more. The carrier can access the reports quickly for review.
