The Permit Book driver app and fleet management tool allows key documents to be electronically loaded into the system and assigned to a driver, truck or trailer to be accessed and viewed on the road.
Permit Book is a cloud-based driver app that loads, organizes and stores critical documents to the driver based on the driver login and which truck and trailer they select after logging in. The documents are downloaded, updated and cached when in an area with Wi-Fi or cellular service.
After downloading the documents are stored locally on the smart device and are accessible even when a driver is in an area without cellular service or Wi-Fi.
If the roadside service officer refuses to touch the screen to see documents, Permit Book documents can also be attached and sent through email.
As of 2019, all U.S. States and Canadian Provinces are required to accept electronic images of IRP cab cards and IFTA licenses, with Alaska and Hawaii being exempt from the requirement. This requires states to make the technology transition as well, and currently over thirty states allow electronic credentials at roadside in some form.
