      Security Instead of Fines: Software for Fleet and Tachograph Management

      Continental has enhanced its fleet services by adding new features to its proven VDO software for fleet and tachograph management, which monitors driver compliance with the law. Fleet managers and transport companies can now make full use of the data in their systems by means of VDO Fleet Scorecards for TIS-Web. The software enables them to analyze the performance of individual drivers – even retroactively over many months.

      In order to be able to monitor and effectively sanction compliance of transport companies, the European Commission began pushing for the establishment of a central register in 2013 – the European Register of Road Transport Undertakings (ERRU). The ERRU is intended to fulfill three central functions. First of all, infringements of the rules in force or the relevant standards for transport companies can be reported. The Member State in which such an infringement has been committed must notify the Member State in which the road transport undertaking is established that it has committed a serious infringement. The Member State in which an infringement has been committed may request that sanctions be imposed on the road transport undertaking in the Member State in which it is established.

      A Member State may also send a request to one or all Member States to determine the fitness of a transport manager and thus his or her authorization to manage a road transport undertaking. Any Member State can also send a request to all other Member States to determine whether a road transport undertaking has a valid Community license.

      Any violation of the rules, for example on driving or rest periods, represents a financial risk for fleet managers – and the fines for drivers can also be severe. EU Regulation 2016/403 additionally sets a limit for violations per driver and year. Violations are classified in different categories based on their seriousness according to a scale that is uniform throughout Europe. If the limit is exceeded, a procedure is started at the national level and the fleet operator’s reliability status is reviewed. In the worst case the operator can lose its EU transport license.

      Fleet managers and transport companies can now make full use of the data in their systems by means of VDO Fleet Scorecards for TIS-Web. The software enables them to analyze the performance of individual drivers – even retroactively over many months.

      „Having an up-to-date overview of the fleet’s status and the current locations of individual vehicles in real time“

      Timo Ketterer, Head of Service Product Management in Continental’s Commercial Vehicle Fleet Services business segment:

      „The scorecards give fleet managers a better view of compliance in TIS-Web. They are notified of risks, can see causes at a glance and can use reports to decide what steps are necessary. The times when managers had to import data from digital tachographs to Excel or another program are over.”
