Study finds significant jump in number of carriers adopting e-logs

MISSISSAUGA, Ont. – Shaw Tracking is enthusiastic about the results from Transport Capital Partners’ latest Business Expectations Survey, which found a significant increase in the percentage of carriers using e-logs across their fleet.

In just three quarters, it’s risen from 25% in May 2012 to 35% in February.Two-thirds of responding carriers were already in the process of testing or using e-logs on their trucks and another 10% were are considering them.

TCP reports that e-log use directly ties to better CSA scores. There is an increasing number of carriers who are now taking steps to improve their CSA scores, which in the last three years have meant educating drivers. The survey found that nearly 50% of the surveyed fleets have changed their hiring standards as a direct response to CSA implementation.

“There’s been a bit of debate when it comes to EOBRs, but for those who have already implemented e-logs, the results speak for themselves,” Shaw Tracking comments. It points to the example of  Translogic Express which implemented Shaw Tracking’s e-logs solution.

“It’s saved their drivers at least 30 minutes per day of manual data entry. It’s also helped with their Safety and Compliance team by decreasing their log auditing time from 4 to 5 hours to a mere 20 minutes, a 93% reduction which helps free up time for other responsibilities,” the company stated.

Transport Capital Partners provides advisory services to fleets.
