If you’re looking for an easy-to-use, feature-packed electronic work diary (EWD) with definitive returns from the first day you log on, then look no further than Hubfleet, says its founder James Doherty.
From contracts, reports and receipts to customer forms and work diaries, drivers across Australia’s transport industry are faced with a lot of paperwork to stay on top of, often having to sift through dozens of pages to find the relevant info they need.
Victorian livestock truckie Daniel Thomas just wanted answers to some basic questions. His employer of the past eight years was installing a Teletrac Navman EWD – the first of four systems now approved by the NHVR as voluntary alternatives to the paper work diary – but no one could allay Thomas’s concerns.
Truckies already have two EWDs approved for use and now a third option will come into play within a matter of weeks.
With two Electronic Work Diaries (EWD) now approved for use, Toll Group has become among the first companies in Australia to implement the Teletrac Navman technology, through a five-driver pilot program.
Former truckie-turned Senator, Glenn Sterle, has mixed feelings about the introduction of the EWD alternative for truckies from December 1.
Over 430 of Australia’s truck drivers have had their voices heard in the national truck law review, thanks to a strong campaign led by the Australian Trucking Association and Big Rigs.
When a NSW truck driver contacted Big Rigs to vent his frustration at being fined for a work diary breach, we shared his story online and it garnered a huge reaction, with many truckies sharing similar stories.
