The Freight Transport Association has launched a pioneering new service aimed at supporting operators who want to join the Driver & Vehicle Standards Agency’s voluntary Earned Recognition Scheme.
The Earned Recognition Data Hub will bring together both vehicle maintenance and driver data from multiple sources and has been designed to be a low-cost, not-for-profit solution to help the industry. Any surplus made will be donated to a charity to promote the image of the industry and attract new talent.
“DVSA’s Earned Recognition requires operators to prove they meet certain driver and vehicle standards,” FTA Chief Executive David Wells explained. “We know that collecting data from multiple sources can prove challenging and costly, so we have developed an industry-leading software solution to help operators get the most from DVSA’s Earned Recognition.
“Not only does the ER Data Hub take your vehicle maintenance data and report against DVSA Key Performance Indicators, it can integrate driver data if you have multiple tachograph analysis providers too. We want to help operators capture 100% of their fleet data with the confidence that it is held confidentially, securely and not used for commercial gain.”
