Xata Announces Turnpike Multiple Management Authority Tracking Tool

Management solution for household goods carriers ensure more effective driver logs through electronic tracking

Minneapolis—March 15, 2012—Fleet optimization software provider Xata Corp. now provides the Xata Turnpike Multiple Management Authority tracking tool, designed for fleet managers of household goods carriers who supervise drivers hauling for multiple operating authorities. With Xata Turnpike’s Multiple Authority Management, HOS is tracked automatically for improved accuracy and a clear view of which drivers are available for each job.

Xata Turnpike is the first and only Hours of Service (HOS) and performance management solution that includes multiple authority management for household goods carriers,” said Christian Schenk, Vice President of Market Development & Product Marketing, Xata Corp. “Drivers and fleet managers now can effectively manage HOS across multiple entities—or authorities—with the precision of electronic logs.”

Drivers working for multiple authorities are required to keep multiple logs for ensured accuracy, which consumes extra time. In addition, paper logs can result in unacceptable errors and missing information.

“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,” said Schenk.
