As everyone in the transportation industry knows, there's a lot of paperwork involved in trucking. Bills of lading, delivery documents, vehicle registrations, repair orders…and that's not even including driver qualification files and other documents necessary for ensuring regulatory compliance. If you don't already have an automated, electronic system in place to manage your driver qualification and vehicle files, not only are your office filing cabinets likely overflowing, but the task of keeping up with the constantly changing regulations is probably giving you a headache.
When it comes to managing driver qualification files and other compliance processes, having the resources to pay the required amount of attention to detail can make the difference between operating a compliant and safe fleet vs. one with mounting violations that put your drivers and fleet at risk. That's why a managed service like InfoStream is a better way to manage your safety and compliance practices.
Save Time and Improve Staff Productivity
Engaging a managed service to assist you with the burdens related to FMCSA compliance and regulatory requirements does more than relieve you of the headaches. A skilled compliance managed service team lets you and your employees focus on your day-to-day business, rather than worrying about whether your driver qualification files are up to date. The managed service takes care of the details so your staff can concentrate on your drivers -- and your fleet.
Mitigate Your Risk
If your organization was audited by the DOT today, would you be ready? Does your staff know where all of your driver qualification and vehicle files are, and can they be retrieved quickly and efficiently? If the answer to these questions is no, then you should consider a managed service to assist you with the nuts and bolts of regulatory compliance for both driver qualification files AND vehicle files. There's no better way to impress upon a DOT auditor that your organization is doing its level best to not only comply with regulations, but to put policies and procedures in place to ensure the safest fleet possible.
Guidance When You Need It
Compliance managed services not only ensure your driver and vehicle files are up to date. They can also guide your organization on best practices for future regulatory requirements. This includes reviewing your current policies and procedures and providing recommendations for adjustments based on industry and regulatory guidelines, as well as undergoing mock audits to see how your personnel and processes perform under pressure.
A compliance managed service can assist you in managing FMCSA and regulatory compliance, as well as your company's own safety programs.
