Trucking companies spend countless hours to put their records together for IFTA fuel tax calculation.

Manually keeping track of each mile you’ve traveled from state line to state line. Adding up the gallons of fuel you’ve purchased in each state. Calculating the gallons you’ve used in each state. And calculating the fuel tax paid and the fuel tax owed by each state. What an administrative nightmare.

The IFTA calculation process isn’t only cumbersome. It’s also highly prone to errors and inconsistencies. However, with the Motive ELD Pro, carriers can accurately calculate IFTA fuel tax reports in just a few clicks.

The Motive ELD automatically keeps track of every mile that your vehicles travel in each jurisdiction. Moreover, the Motive electronic logging device also calculates the fuel pumped in each jurisdiction.

This automation significantly reduces the administrative burden of collecting state mileage crossing from paper trip reports.

Users can also upload fuel purchase receipts. Motive will automatically summarize total distance and fuel purchased in each state or province for every vehicle in your fleet.

These fuel purchase entries can be either uploaded individually or in bulk with a CSV file that contains the fuel purchase records of your fleet.

Moreover, since the Motive ELD automatically and accurately records everything. Say goodbye to inconsistencies and errors, and reduce your risk of being audited.

Other benefits of the Motive ELD Pro

The Motive ELD Starter package is for compliance. However, the Motive ELD Pro offers much more.

The Motive ELD Pro currently has these fleet management features:

1. Idle-time tracking

With idle-time tracking, carriers can significantly reduce the amount of fuel wastage. For a truck that consumes $70,000 worth of fuel every year, approximately $5,600 is wasted on idling.

With the idle-time tracking feature, companies can identify drivers who idle for too long or too frequently. This means less fuel wastage and bigger saving on an annual basis.

2. Driver scorecards

With this ELD feature, fleet managers can improve safety by monitoring drivers and critical events, such as hard braking, hard acceleration, and hard cornering.

Fleet managers can see the safety scores for individual drivers and the overall fleet. They can also track their best- and worst-performing drivers with safety scorecards. And, of course, identify the ones that require immediate coaching.

3. Vehicle diagnostics

Fleet managers can use the vehicle diagnostic feature to stay ahead of vehicle maintenance issues.

The Motive ELD actively monitors the vehicle for fault codes. It alerts fleet managers with real-time notifications when fault codes are detected. This eliminates the need for physical inspections.

Moreover, fleet managers can also identify recurring vehicle issues with historical fault-code reports. Stay ahead of potential issues.
