Introduced on the 20th of August, these new rules include a requirement for drivers to ‘return home’ every four weeks. The governance also compels employers to seek accommodation for long-haul drivers – thus eliminating the detrimental practice of forcing drivers to sleep in their vehicles.
This means that all drivers must take the following when operating in any EU country:
The main EU rules on driving hours are that you must not drive more than:
All driving done under EU rules must also be recorded on a tachograph.
Using the TrackTrans ePOD app, operators are able to accurately monitor drivers’ working hours, via the activity recording module. The status of each employee is recorded by selecting one of either the ‘WORK’, ‘POA’, ‘BREAK’, ‘STOP’ tabs at the top of the screen. The data is returned live to TMS and can be displayed back in the office. If required, the information can be used to inform the payroll system.
Our software enables you to ensure that your drivers are corresponding to the newly enforced EU rules. The application’s simple messaging system also gives you the ability to remind specific employees of the regulations, if required.
