New way to keep drivers app-y

The Freight Transport Association (FTA) has launched a new App giving drivers complete visibility of their drivers’ hours data, making sure they have up-to-date information to help them stay compliant.

Described as ‘the ultimate App for drivers’ – Driverfta enables them to keep track of their most recent driving updates including date and time of their last card upload and the last activity included in that upload. They can view key working times, weekly rest figures, and other drivers’ hours information including what time their next shift can start.

Sam Varrall – FTA Tachograph product owner said: “FTA is delighted to announce Driverfta which gives drivers a complete overview of working times, drivers’ hours and any infringements incurred. This enables them to take responsibility of their own hours, assisting them in planning their day more accurately and ensuring they keep within the legal limits. We have listened to the needs our members and after long discussions have worked with them to develop innovative software to save time, money and improve compliance.”
