For any business that has a fleet to maintain, federal Department of Transportation (DOT) compliance is essential. When fleet vehicles fall out of compliance, that can lead to costly fixes, changes and penalties, and truck insurance cost increases, all of which bite into the bottom line and reduce the profitability of the company involved. While compliance is a form of government regulation, it also provides various benefits, road safety among them.
Having the Right Tools Matter
Like much in the federal government, DOT compliance has become a very complicated matter. Much of this is due to the fact that so many rules, regulations, guidelines and directives have now been issued and continued to be modified, it literally takes a library to keep up with everything. Worse, companies are still responsible to make sure their fleets are kept in compliance with all the new changes on top of everything they already have.
Using Technology to Even the Field
Technology is the fleet manager’s friend. With automation and fast-searching, fleet managers can easily pinpoint the various DOT regulations and rules that apply to them specifically. This produces the ability to stop wasting time and focus energy on just what really matters for staying in compliance. It also saves money that has to be spent on inspections as well as equipment changes or add-ons. And staying on top of the changes that apply also saves from legal risks down the road that otherwise occur without all the above attention being applied. No surprise, most fleet managers with experience rely heavily on technology library tools, both for tracking existing DOT rules as well as gaining the advantage of updates to track new changes as well.
With MVRCheck tools, fleet managers have both online and technology tools at their disposal. MVR has advanced the ability to stay on top of compliance by leveraging both powerful databases as well as the Internet. This makes DOT compliance information useful instead of being a challenge or frustration. First, MVR technology tools start with a centralized approach to saving fleet information and making it manageable for a fleet manager. Second, MVR tools then take that information and compare it automatically against all the applicable requirements that would be eligible. The results are powerful, accurate and immediate. MVR tools then allow the fleet manager to keep these results in accessible form that can be translated and applied real time to their fleet, updating what is needed when changes also apply as well. Because MVR takes a pay-as-you-go approach, fleet managers don’t have to face a big investment to get the benefits of automation. With a far lower cost, fleet managers can keep their fleets functional and regulated without breaking the bank.
