In April of 2011 Mara implemented electronic logs by joining with PeopleNet. The drivers were not very receptive at the onset but have adjusted extremely well. Besides keeping our drivers in compliance, it also assures they will get their 10 hour break. A well rested driver makes a safer driver. Electronic logs aslo helps dispatch to be more efficient.
