The Comprehensive ELog Solution
The Encompass® Platform with J. J. Keller® ELDs gives you complete visibility to your hours-of-service, helping you avoid citations, fines, and out-of-service orders while maximizing your driver’s available hours.
Assuming your log auditor understands the hours-of-service (HOS) regulations in Part 395, and in particular, the form and manner requirements and the limits in §395.3, they can use the tips below for auditing your short-haul (sometimes referred to as exempt) logging records.
Ideally, it’s wise to automate hours-of-service recordkeeping by having drivers use an electronic logging device (ELD) that supports exempt logging. Use of ELDs can ease the burden of log auditors and makes driver’s available hours visible to all stakeholders (like dispatch and payroll), which is especially helpful if you have regulated and non-regulated drivers.
Use the log audit process below to uncover any non-compliance events in short-haul logging records.
*Supporting documents include dispatch records, trip records/reports, payroll records, electronic communication and tracking records, and receipts.
