Truck regulatory compliance

Keeping your fleet legal and on the road

Staying up-to-date with federal, state and local requirements for the trucks in your fleet can be complicated and time consuming. Element offers comprehensive services that keep your trucks compliant with the law, making it easier to stay focused on serving your customers. Our Regulatory Compliance program ensures your fleet vehicles are titled, registered and compliant with regulations, and remain a productive asset for your company.

Valuable partners make all the difference

Do you have commercial vehicles in your fleet and not even know it? One violation can pull your entire fleet out of service. We can help you manage all the intricacies of the law in all the places where your fleet is located with success.

Our program includes title management, re-titling, state-to-state/province-to-province transfers, base plates and IRP plating. And in the United States, we offer a full suite of DOT compliance services.

Expert consulting

Our experts conduct an initial audit and provide ongoing DOT audit support. We also provide an initial assessment of your compliance with Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSR) and offer recommendations on how you can maximize compliance, improve safety performance and reduce your exposure to liability.

Driver services

We establish and maintain a centralized driver qualification file database and make it accessible online. It includes a driver log audit service where we manage hours-of-service compliance requirements, audit driver logs and identify hours-of-service violations. We will also manage a substance-abuse testing program, including initial program audits, drug and alcohol file management, and follow-up test tracking.

DOT compliance

Our comprehensive suite of services gives you access to regulatory expertise and a deep resource pool. The program also automates the scheduling of DOT annual inspections for your vehicles.

Maintenance records

We centralize maintenance records of all your vehicles for DOT reporting purposes. Online records of repairs performed can be accessed during DOT audit.

Title, licensing, fuel tax reporting and permit renewals

Our team will manage renewals for your IFTA, IRP, UCR and mileage tax accounts by monitoring the expiration date of all permits to verify that applications are received and submitted prior to expiration. We’ll also monitor the IRP billing process to ensure that payment is received and processed in a timely manner.

Identification of DOT-reportable accidents

Element handles DOT-reportable accidents based on your specific policies, judging whether or not the accident is reportable to DOT. In addition, we notify any designated or responsible individuals when an incident is reported by your driver.
