Can Channel 40 help me meet my CoR obligations?
Yes! We’ve worked closely with the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) to make meeting the new Chain of Responsibility (CoR) laws simple for drivers and freight owners. We built in to our system the need for every person in the supply chain to take steps that prevent mass, load restraint, dimension and fatigue and speed offences using a combination of smart features.
To ensure drivers comply with work/rest hours, our GPS signals track their movements and can use automated messaging to alert the driver and transport company if they need to take a break. We’re also working on another feature requiring drivers to confirm at time of accepting a load that they have the available hours required to complete the job.
Using the same GPS tracking as above, we can monitor a driver’s speed and alert them, and the transport company, if they are going too fast.
Our document framework, made available to all drivers upon registration, includes the recently released NTC guidelines for lashing procedures. These require drivers to take photos showing correct placing and restraints have been used on collection of the load, and freight owners to confirm placing and lashing were correct on delivery. Drivers receive automated reminders to ensure the task doesn’t get missed.
Upon registration, Channel 40 requests each transport company to provide their policies and procedures for mass management. It is the freight owner’s responsibility when posting a load to confirm the weights provided in the post are true and accurate to the best of their knowledge. To assist in providing accurate information, in addition to photos of the load item, freight owners may upload diagrams or spec sheet attachments in any file format when posting a load to Channel 40.
