The DOT driver qualification files are a comprehensive set of requirements that truck drivers must meet to be qualified to drive a truck. The files include information such as driver education, experience, and licensing requirements.

If the DOT decides to perform an audit, they will require access to your driver qualification files in order to verify that you’re in compliance. Having an up-to-date and compliant driver qualification file management system will help you avoid potential problems with the DOT.

How Geotab Data Can Integrate With Your Driver Files

How Geotab Data Can Integrate With Your Driver Files

The ELD mandate’s purpose is to reduce the overall number of accidents, but there is much more to it than just tracking the service hours. Now, it’s possible to integrate Geotab data with your driver files for comprehensive driver tracking and reporting.

Having Accurate ELD Data for IFTA and IRP

Both the IFTA and IRP need to know the exact miles driven in each state. Geotab data can be used to accurately track mileage so that tax is allocated correctly and fuel costs are properly accounted for.

ELD Data for Detention Evidence

ELD data can be used for evidence when it comes to driver detention. Many times, shippers and receivers will not pay for the extra time that drivers must wait to be loaded or unloaded. Using Geotab data, you can easily see when the truck arrived, when the driver left, and how long they were detained.

Load Location Tracking Using ELD Data

ELD data can also be used to track load location. Geotab data can be used to calculate the time of arrival at the destination and the exact location of the truck at any given time. This is especially helpful for trucking companies who are trying to ensure their loads are delivered on time.

Trucking Software and ELD: Data Management

Integrating Geotab data with your trucking software and driver file management like DQMConnect can be a great way to manage ELD data. This integration allows for easy data management, and makes it easier to determine the total miles driven, the total fuel consumed, and the hours of service for each driver.

FMCSA Offsite Audits on the Rise

FMCSA Offsite Audits on the Rise

The FMCSA has been conducting offsite audits for over 3 years. Starting in 2019, they were largely focused on safety reviews. However, the number and types of offsite audits have been on the rise. The pandemic encouraged the transition while the ease and cost effectiveness of offsite audits are continuing the trend upward.

In 2020, nearly 5 times the number of offsite audits were conducted as compared with 2019. Last year, 2021 saw a rule change enabling the FMCSA to issue safety ratings after an offsite audit. More motor carriers are receiving a “conditional” safety rating than “satisfactory”, despite so many audits being done remotely. This is something the agency could never do before.

Given the trend of the past 3 years and the fact that offsite audits appear to be working, they will likely remain part of the agency’s approach for years to come.

Let’s examine the audit numbers for 2021.

6% increase in audits; 95% resulting in violations

30% increase in audits that uncovered severe violations

37% increase in audits with critical violations such as missing records

The rise in conditional safety ratings is an important consideration for any HR manager or Fleet Manager. Conditional safety ratings can have costly consequences, including lost customers, higher insurance rates, and increased liability in court.

The Transition to Offsite Audits

As we can see, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration is relying more heavily on offsite audits. It is time for you to embrace a DQM File Management tool to help ensure your compliance and facilitate these offsite audits. DQMConnect has a truly unique approach to DQM File Management. You maintain control of your files and it presents you with your compliance status and prepares the necessary audit files right from the Dashboard. No waiting. No loss of control. The data is yours and is accessible 24×7. For you and for the auditor should you need it.

Let us show you why more carriers are moving to DQMConnect to stay in control, in compliance, and audit ready!
