Feature: HOS Solution

Hours of service (HOS) is a series of FMCSA-issued regulations that administer the driver hours of anyone operating a commercial motor vehicle for interstate commerce. An HOS software solution fulfills this government regulation by fully automating the entry, recording, completion and storage of all required information needed for logbooks—from the driver’s cab.

Teletrac HOS Solution Helps Both Your Business and Your Drivers

Fleet Manager Benefits:

  • Improved Communication. Drivers and dispatch have never been more interconnected. Fleet managers can easily plan jobs and increase fleet efficiency by viewing up-to-date driver statuses.
  • A Wealth of Data. Trusted by tens of thousands of Teletrac customers, our HOS software provides up to eight days of driving data for our in-cab display. 
  • Customizable. Fleet managers can access a customizable HOS module by logging into our Fleet Director
    software that provides real-time data on all of their fleet’s drivers. The module also easily accommodates slipseat operations that involve multiple drivers on a specified route.
  • Easily Integrated. The HOS software module is fully integrated with other Fleet Director components for seamless operation. Per FMCSA regulations, any electronic recorder used for HOS compliance must be connected to the vehicle’s engine electronic control module (ECM). Teletrac meets this requirement via a standard J-bus connection.

Driver Benefits:

  • Easy Storage. Drivers can fully automate the entry and storage of all required information needed for driver logbooks.
  • Time-Saving. Time-consuming and error-prone manual logbook entries and audits are easily eliminated.
  • User-Friendly. Easy-to-use, easy-to-understand screens simplify driver workloads and facilitate rapid data entry. This HOS data is easily recorded, transmitted and displayed on the Fleet Director Tablet. 
  •  Fast Retrieval. All relevant HOS information—such as driver identification and current status—is sent to the user’s computer for storage and retrieval via a wireless network. The stored data may also be transmitted to drivers as needed.
