Xata Corp., a provider of fleet optimization software, announced Xata Turnpike Multiple Management Authority, a tracking tool for fleet managers of household goods carriers who supervise drivers hauling for multiple operating authorities.

Xata Turnpike is an hours-of-service and performance management solution that includes multiple authority management for household goods carriers, says Christian Schenk, vice president of market development and product marketing for Xata. “Drivers and fleet managers now can effectively manage HOS across multiple entities, or authorities, with the precision of electronic logs,” Schenk says.

Drivers working for multiple authorities are required to keep multiple logs, which Schenk calls “a big headache for everyone involved” – ensuring logbook accuracy consumes extra time, and paper logs can result in unacceptable errors and missing information. Schenk says with Xata Turnpike’s Multiple Authority Management, HOS is tracked automatically, which means greater HOS accuracy and a clear view of which drivers are available for each job.

“With Multiple Management Authority, fleet managers can track information from drivers across multiple authorities and help keep them HOS-compliant, no matter who they’re driving for,” says Schenk. More information is available at www.brainshark.com/xata/multipleauthority.
