Fleetmatics LogBook Case Study

A & I Distributors

Introduction

This case study of A & I Distributors is based on a June 2017 survey of Fleetmatics LogBook customers by TechValidate, a 3rd-party research service.

“Fleetmatics LogBook has almost eliminated any HOS violations. Even the most ardent critics have agreed that it is easier to use a tablet rather than a paper log book.”

Challenges

A & I Distributors started using Fleetmatics LogBook to improve their CSA score and reduce HOS violations, while integrating with their GPS program.

Use Case

A & I Distributors saw a number of benefits from Fleetmatics LogBook, including:

  • Access to drivers’ hours of service (HOS) in real time
  • Decreased HOS compliance violations
  • Decreased DVIR time and paperwork
  • Reduced costs
  • Prepared their business for the upcoming ELD mandate changes

Results

A & I Distributors achieved the following improvements against key goals using Fleetmatics LogBook:

  • Safety: more than 30%
  • Compliance: more than 30%
  • Productivity: more than 30%
  • Cost savings: more than 30%
  • Revenue: more than 30%

A & I Distributors’ Compliance Officer Vern Anttila adds, "The drivers hear the 30 minute Break warning and it reminds them to take their Break. The log book function has also made the back office portion easier. I am able to identify any issues or problem drivers quickly.

“If the log book function went away, A & I Distributors would go backwards quickly. My back office work load would increase tremendously as I would have to audit each paper log against the GPS report. I would not be able to receive real time alerts of an HOS violation.”
