What’s a truck e-inspection and how does it work?

Truck technology advancements hold a multitude of opportunities and one major, common challenge: Change. What sounds great in theory takes a lot of time and energy to turn into a reality. Consider electronic inspections for trucks at weigh stations. Certainly digital vehicle inspection reports are well known to fleets, but when a truck pulls into a weigh station–streamlining the inspection process digitally means a transition for law enforcement and fleets alike. It’s that transition that Drivewyze is tackling with its e-inspection pilot program.

The e-Inspection Expedited Inspection pilot program is currently operating in a phase one deployment that automates currently manual steps of CSA-crediting Level I-III inspections in station. Officers no longer need to collect all inspection information manually, nor do they need to manually enter the information into multiple screening and inspection systems.

For a deeper understanding of what that all means, how e-inspections actually work and where the program goes from here, I caught up with Sara Steele, product manager and director of compliance, Drivewyze. Watch the video above for all of her insight.

“Location, location, location” is a well-known real estate industry mantra; in the fleet world, we can change that to “application, application, application.” Doesn’t have quite the same ring to it, but you get what I mean.

There’s no part or component on the truck that isn’t affected by where and how the truck will be used, and this should be the first thing on any fleet manager’s mind when spec’ing a new part.
