Driver Logs and ELD Compliance

Driver Logs and ELD Compliance

NTCI uses state-of-the-art technology to monitor your driver logs, time records and Electronic Logging Devices (ELDs). NTCI can help your company, whether you are using ELDs, paper logs, or a combination of both. In addition to auditing the data for hours of service and form and manner violations, we will also design a comprehensive program to verify your driver logs for date and time accuracy. Our system will consolidate data from ELDs, paper logs and time cards to generate a variety of individualized reports and/or dashboards for the safety director and violation notices to the drivers.

Our service differs from many of our competitors who simply scan logs through a computer system and provide a list of violations for clients to interpret. We utilize technology to audit logs, but also put “eyes on each log” to review for errors that otherwise may be missed. We also cross check against checkpoint data to identify issues that an enforcement officer would find on an audit. As a result, we know our service quality is better.
