How One Company Automated Their IFTA Reporting and Increased Their ROI

Fleet owners that ship goods across state lines are all too familiar with the headache that is International Fuel Tax Agreement or (IFTA). Under IFTA, fleet owners must keep detailed records on total miles driven, fuel purchased, and fuel tax paid in each state that their vehicles travel in.

Drury Southwest was spending countless hours trying to manually compile (often inaccurate) data for IFTA reports. They said, “When our drivers cross state lines, they’re not sitting there saying, ‘How many miles was it from Texarkana to the Louisiana state line…’, so I’d have to backtrack, recalculate, and many times their miles didn’t add up.” Also, their drivers found themselves bogged down trying to log their hours instead of focusing their energy on driving. Keeping up with IFTA paperwork and the constantly-changing ELD requirements is a time-consuming chore for many fleet managers. Find out how FleetLocate Helped Drury Southwest.

What Will Happen After the April 1, 2018 ELD Hard Enforcement Deadline?

“The inspector will cite the driver for failing to have the proper record of duty status, and will place the driver out of service (OOS) for 10 hours (8 hours for a passenger carrier), in accordance with the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance North American Standard Out-of-Service Criteria. At the end of the OOS period, the driver is allowed to complete the current trip to its final destination using paper logs. If the driver is stopped again prior to the final destination, the driver must provide the safety official a copy of the inspection report and evidence (e.g., bill of lading) proving he/she is continuing the original trip. After reaching the final destination, if the driver is dispatched without obtaining a compliant ELD, he/she will again be subject to the OOS procedures. However, a driver may return with an empty CMV to his/her principle place of business or home terminal, as indicated on the roadside inspection report. Violations count against the carrier’s Safety Measurement System (SMS) scores.”
