Drivers' working hours are, as everyone knows, highly regulated at both national and European level. And, in the event of an infringement of driving and rest periods, the penalties for the transport company are sometimes very severe.

Managing drivers' working hours is, therefore, a daily challenge for transport managers. However, it is possible to reduce the number of driving time violations by improving processes, training staff or investing in an appropriate time management tool. In this white paper, we will briefly explain what driving and rest time management is and then examine how you can avoid violations and sanctions.

Reduce waiting times during loading and unloading

Reduce the waiting times for your commercial vehicles

Many transportation companies experience waiting times and they are costly both in terms of money and time. Waiting times often occur at the customer's place, as the driver must wait before loading or unloading of the goods. Even if every waiting period is not always long, it quickly accumulates to substantial time, which costs a lot of money over time. For most transportation companies this is an indirect expense that is difficult to get full coverage for when the customer is charged. For this reason, there is good potential to save money and time in this area.
