MiX by Powerfleet develops telematics software and hardware solutions
that give fleet operators the tools to manage even the most complex
region- and industry-specific fleet compliance requirements

The laws that regulate transportation are very necessary because they help keep your drivers safe by reducing fatigue-related accidents and maintaining roadworthy vehicles, while at the same time protecting other road users.

However, keeping up with the complexity that comes with these regulations can feel overwhelming and confusing. A reliable fleet management solution, gives you an electronic toolkit that removes the need for the traditional, cumbersome paperwork and keeps you in control of your compliance.

  • Driver logs

  • Personal and business mode switch

  • Driver identification


Driver Hours and Fatigue

In terms of fleet compliance, the spotlight has been on drivers’ hours for quite some time. The monitoring of drivers’ hours is legally enforced for a very good reason – safety. It protects the wellbeing of drivers by ensuring that they take regular breaks while driving for work to reduce fatigue. Fatigue is a big cause of collisions and by reducing tired driving, you are helping to reduce both fatal and non-fatal crashes. This is especially key when it comes to fleet drivers that drive long distances for hours at a time, or those who drive large vehicles like trucks that can cause a lot of damage, should a driver fall asleep at the wheel.

Fleet tracking software electronically keeps track of drivers’ hours and can automatically let operators, supervisors and drivers alike know when the limit has been exceeded. This ensures that rest breaks are taken exactly when needed and electronic driver logs are available for compliance review.

Driver Identification and Privacy

What’s more is that tools like driver identification and mode switching between personal and business mode, further help to meet fleet compliance requirements. Driver identification ensures that the correct information is linked to the correct driver. Mode switching allows drivers to have more control over their privacy and prevents travel to and from home to sites or for lunch breaks being included in their working hours.

Electronic Logging

Most driving hours regulations, such as the FMCSA's, require a type of ELD (electronic logging device) or tachograph to log drivers’ hours, dependent on what country or region a fleet operates in. MiX by Powerfleet have ELDs and other tools that suit your specific compliance requirements. Your fleet can collect all the relevant information electronically, with little to no input from operators or supervisors once the software and hardware is installed, and officials are able to easily download electronic logs during roadside inspections.

Real-Time Alerts

After-the-fact intervention is not ideal. MiX by Powerfleet’ compliance software offers immediate alerts as soon as a defined compliance parameter has been violated by a driver. This ensures that fleet operators and fleet supervisors can immediately intervene to avoid potential crashes and fines.

Tampering Prevention

MiX by Powerfleet has decades of experience in the field of compliance and knows the pitfalls of installing compliance-related hardware in vehicles. We ensure that our devices are tamperproof so that driving hours always remain correct, to prevent fatigue, and to reduce the risk of potential time theft.


A study by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety estimated that 328,000 crashes occur annually because of drowsy or fatigued driving. 109,000 of these crashes result in injury and 6,400 are fatal.


Ensuring your fleet is compliant not only increases the safety of your drivers while reducing fines, but it also optimizes the efficiency of your operations. Here are four ways that compliance solutions do this:
