The EOBR Plan
The EOBR plan is ideal for the operation seeking to move to electronic driver logs, and to simplify and automate compliance.
With the EOBR plan and the TND™ 760, you’ll gain access to a paperless, electronic Hours of Service (HOS) application as well as electronic Vehicle Inspection Reports (VIR). Compliant with 49 CFR parts 395.15, 396.11, and 396.13, the plan provides access to the Rand McNally Connect web portal for downloading and saving reports.
Electronic Hours of Service
- Keeps HOS records and logs time electronically. The TND™ 760 detects when the vehicle is moving and when it is stopped, logging the time and automatically notating logs as the activity happens.
- Includes driving, on-duty (not driving), off-duty, and sleeper berth duty status options. Also supports personal conveyance rules. The device also will prompt the driver when at risk of running out of driving and other times.
- Drivers may make notations on log entries – just like with paper logs – as well as certify hours. On the device, drivers may view eight days of driving history and line graphs, as well as a list of itemized statuses recorded during the day.
- All Hours of Service information gathered is visible on the TND™ 760 device, as well as through the Rand McNally Connect web portal. Through the portal, you can download HOS reports and save them to PDF files that can be printed, emailed, or faxed.
- Log data is stored for the U.S. Department of Transportation's required six months.
- Saves time and money by eliminating paper logs books and the effort to manually record driving, on duty and other times.
- Helps you stay compliant with 49 CFR, part 395.15. Rand McNally will help you remain compliant via ongoing software updates when there is a change in regulation.
- Assists dispatch operations by providing visibility to available driving and on-duty hours.
Vehicle Inspection Reporting
- The TND™ 760 device includes a detailed list of the truck's systems and subsystems for logging minor and major mechanical defects (such as bumper issues, taillight out, turn signal not working, brakes in need of work).
- VIRs occur twice per day: At the start of the day, drivers review the prior VIR and conduct a new VIR; at the end of the day, drivers conduct an independent inspection.
- After an inspection, drivers log "Satisfactory" or note if something is wrong. If there are no issues, drivers may certify the report and be on their way. If there are issues, the TND™ 760 will alert the driver until the problem is resolved. Drivers also will be alerted if they haven't filled out the Vehicle Inspection Report (VIR).
- All of the information gathered is sent to the Rand McNally Connect web portal. Through the portal you can view PDF reports of the day's VIR, record repairs, and view information. Twelve months of reports are stored in the portal.
- Enables you to be paper free by recording the VIR electronically; no need for another logbook.
- Helps you stay compliant with 49 CFR, parts 396.11 and 396.13 regulations.
- Gives managers a heads up on maintenance issues so they can be fixed before they get too costly; improves safety by helping ensue reports are filled out and drivers are on top of vehicle maintenance.
