Continental Carrier Achieves 100% Driver Transparency with Matrack


CONTINENTAL CARRIERS

As a traditional logistic company, Continental Carriers did most of their fleet management operations on paper. And with FMCSA rolling out the ELD mandate, it became crucial for the organisation to adapt to modern technology. Here are some of the challenges this logistic company was trying to overcome:

CHALLENGES

Challenges faced by Continental Carriers before opting For Matrack’s ELD:

Continental Carriers is a logistic company based in Fresno, California. It is a medium sized trucking company, dealing with clients all over the country. Its Fleet Manager, Mr. Prem Sodhi had decided to engage assistance from Matrack Incorporations for electronic Logging Device solution.

Unreliable Paper Logs

Most records were kept in paper, making it tedious and time-consuming to find relevant information and file required reports with the authorities. Filing for taxes, insurance, quarterly state reports and all calculations pertaining to these reports had to be done manually.

Lack Of Personalized Customer Service

As the drivers were also required to maintain their driving records, mileage, fuel usage, driving hours, and more, in paper logs, the data thus recorded was not completely authentic and error-free. The data was also required to be maintained in several copies so that it could be furnished to the safety inspector, whenever required.

High Risk of HOS Violations

Like every other logistic company, the drivers at Continental Carriers also travelled across state borders, which means calculation of fuel tax had to be done manually.

Absence of Tech Support

For a fleet manager, it was difficult to know the exact time a commercial motor vehicle spent idling, or at the loading/unloading docks, or if the driver had not deviated for the prearranged travel route.

Resistance To New Technologies

When FMCSA rolled out the ELD mandate, many carriers and trucking companies were worried that the drivers in their fleet and other employees might find it difficult to adapt to modern technology as it could be complicated for them to understand and operate.
