Driving times monitoring - tachograph integration

Comply with legislation on driving time restrictions and fulfilling your duty of care for your drivers and the public
You just received another request to transport goods. You’re looking for the nearest vehicles to assign the job to. But how do you know if the corresponding drivers still have enough driving time available to execute the job in the available time frame?

How we can help you

If your company uses trucks to transport goods in Europe, chances are you are already familiar with Regulation (EC) 561/2006. This document provides a common set of European Union rules for maximum daily and fortnightly driving times.

This is so important for many of our clients that our Managing Director has sat the 7 hour "Driving Hours and Tachographs" module of the driver CPC course so we can help you more effectively.

Regulation 561 goes hand in hand with the use of tachographs. That’s how your drivers keep track of their driving times and rest periods.

How do you keep track of those times in your office to select the most suitable drivers and vehicles for new jobs?

How do you know you have not chosen a driver who has almost reached their driving time limit?

Save time and allocate the right driver to the work with real time visibility of driver hours direct from the tachograph.

That’s exactly what you get with Frotcom’s driving times monitoring. You will know the driving times for each driver, every step of the way.

How it works

Frotcom controls the following elements of driving time restrictions:

  • Continuous driving
    Continuous driving without a break (or two breaks) with the necessary duration(s)

  • Daily driving time
    The total daily driving time (the day doesn’t necessarily start at 00:00, but when the previous daily rest period finishes)
  • Weekly driving time
    The total driving time in the current week; also Indicates if in this week, the driver can still drive an extra hour per day

  • Biweekly driving time
    This is the total driving time for the current and previous week

All these elements are configured by default for European legislation, but can be reconfigured if desired.
 
If the vehicle has a co-driver, the co-driver’s driving times are also shown.
 
Main features
  • Permanent information about the driving times of each driver;
  • Compatibility with Regulation (EC) 561/2006, configurable for other sets of rules.

Benefits

Avoid non-compliance with legislation
Fines for driving time violations can be significant. Frotcom will help your fleet managers communicate with drivers to avoid situations where violations might occur.

Plan easily
Because you know the driving times for each driver, you will no longer need to call each one and ask. Planning and assigning new jobs can be accomplished more easily. 
​Avoid conflicts of interests and suspicions
Knowing the driving times upfront also avoids unpleasant situations in which the fleet manager wants drivers to drive more time and drivers claim they have exhausted their driving time periods. Now that information is available to everyone.

Improve fleet safety
Removing the necessity to phone your drivers to ask about remaining driving time reduces the number of calls to drivers and allows them to concentrate on driving safely and efficiently within the law.
