Remember when everything was easy and you worked with paper logs? It can still be that easy as long as you let the tools provided work to your benefit.
Make a check list so that a routine is easier to follow, especially when it comes to getting all the macros sent in. A great way to start would be Macro 18 and 19, which we all know are pre and post inspections for tractor and trailer. It is very important that these macros get sent in daily at least twice a day. Sometimes we forget to send them in whenever a trailer is switched out. This happens with relays and/or drop and hooks. By making sure these macros are completed and sent in, we are ensured that the equipment is safe for transit.
Accidents do happen, always send in delay macros when an issue arises. Delay macros notify everyone involved with the load. Even if a flat tire doesn’t delay our on time performance we are prepared for the worst.
If we take just a few steps towards the right path we will make our jobs a lot easier and the roads a safer place
Thank you and good night!
