Navigo Feedback January 2016

Any time NaviGo is even just a little bit off, please send us feedback from the customers’ truck entrance, this allows us to plot the point where the truck needs to be instead of the mailbox or the front of the building.
To send NaviGo feedback, go to the navigation main screen, press the feedback button, then the general feedback button. This will give you a screen where you can type a message. Remember, the more information that you put in your message, the more information we have to pass on to other drivers. We encourage you to include any general details for the customer that you feel other drivers should know. This can include:
·        Do they have overnight parking?
·        Do they have a scale on site?
·        Does the customer take open deliveries or do they only take firm appointments?
·        Any other information that will help your fellow driver.
 
Thanks for sending NaviGo feedback!

Off Duty Time

When Can Driving Time Be Considered Off-Duty Time?
Under normal circumstances, all time spent at the controls operating a commercial motor vehicle must be logged as driving time.  But what happens if a driver is using his or her commercial motor vehicle as a personal vehicle to drive to or from a personal destination?  The concept of “off-duty driving time” is not actually in the regulations; however, it is discussed in great detail in the interpretation to Part 395.  Interpretations are the guidelines published by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) to provide a better understanding of the rules.
To be able to log personal conveyance time as off duty (Line 5 on ELOGS), there are several conditions that must be met.  The guidelines are the same for Company Drivers and Owner Operators.
First, the driver must be relieved of all responsibilities and conducting no on-duty activities.  No work for the company is allowed when using Line 5 (Off-Duty Driving). For example, the driver cannot take the truck to a shop for repairs and use Line 5.
Second, the trip and destination must be purely personal in nature,  Moving to pick up your next load, going to a terminal or drop-lot, or going to get fuel are all work related and cannot be done using Line 5 time. A driver can bobtail from the drop-lot to a restaurant to eat and back on Line 5, as long as he or she is not under a dispatch. 
Third, the vehicle must not be “laden”.  In other words, you cannot be pulling a trailer.
Fourth, you must not be “repositioning” the equipment.  If your Fleet Manager lets you bob-tail home you can use Line 5.  But when you get ready to leave home if you are sent to get an empty trailer to use for your next load, then you cannot use Line 5. 
Fifth, if you have been placed out of service for an hours-of-service violation, you cannot move the vehicle until you are put back in service.
Finally,  Line 5 driving distance needs to be “reasonable”.  You are not allowed to travel several hundred miles on Line 5.  But you can bob-tail to the closest truck stop to eat and do laundry.  As a guideline we use 30 minutes, if you can bob-tail to a truck stop or restaurant in 30 minutes and then get back in 30 minutes, we consider that reasonable.

Citation and Inspection Submission

SUBMISSION OF CITATIONS and INSPECTIONS
The FMCSA states in regulation §396.9 (d) (1) that the driver of a Commercial Motor Vehicle shall immediately mail, fax or otherwise transmit the inspection report to the carrier within 24 hours. 
With that being said, always make sure that the copies that you are sending to the carrier are clear and legible. If, during the inspection, you have received a citation for any type of violation, you are also required to submit a copy of the ticket (front and back) with the inspection report.
There are a couple of ways that you can submit these in a timely manner:
1.  Fax to 270-753-1528 or 270-753-1730 (ATTN: Gene Fielder/Tabitha Jones).
Either fax number will assure that the appropriate persons that handle these time sensitive documents will receive a copy.
2.  Fax or scan both sides of the citation. Be sure to sign your name on the citation where required.
3.   Transflo or Trip-pak scan the documents with a yellow log cover sheet. Then send message 21 and place an ‘X’ next to the number 9 over the Qualcomm with the 16 digit confirmation code. The code or number, will be a combination of letters and numbers i.e. LV01-2ab3-d45e-6fg7. There may or may not be any dashes.
4.   Out of service “FIX IT TICKETS”:
      a.   All OOS inspection reports must be signed by the repairer. 
      b.  CA must be signed by the repairer and a DOT Officer before being sent in.
If, for any reason, there is a problem or question, call Gene Fielder, Tabitha Jones or Carol Dunn in Driver Services for assistance.

2015 Needline Food Drive







Earlier this morning we delivered over 2,000 items to Needline in Murray, KY, where our corporate office is located.  This is the second holiday season that PTL co-owners in Murray have come together to donate to those in need in our local community.

Last year we collected approximately 1,600 items so we were very pleased to surpass that number this year. Thank you to everyone who helped us load and unload the truck this morning.

Congratulations to the Operations department for making the largest contribution and earning the right to hold our Food Drive traveling trophy until our next drive.  This department really pulled together and represented over half of the total donation!
