Teletrac Inc. and McLeod Software have extended their partnership to connect the Teletrac Fleet Director Hours of Service (HOS) platform with McLeod LoadMaster, which manages transportation dispatching and accounting. The companies plan to give fleet managers the ability to quickly review drivers’ HOS statuses and create federally-compliant loads assignments in light of federal requirements for electronic HOS recording devices, according to the press release that announced the news.
The Teletrac/McLeod HOS partnership connects two key software features fleet managers use on a daily basis: the HOS Manager portal, where dispatchers can view HOS driver log summaries sent from vehicles’ in-cab displays; and individual HOS statuses, which users can now cross-reference with job delivery times.
“This partnership helps businesses run a tight ship, generating larger profits while keeping their drivers in compliance,” said Teletrac’s Marco Encinas. “A federally-compliant fleet is able to understand how to run its business to best serve customers.”
