Check your fleet management software capabilities ahead of Brexit 

Tools need to be in place to help manage and comply with new paperwork requirements

Despite the extension to Brexit negotiations, we are encouraging fleet managers to check that the capabilities of their fleet management systems are geared up for the changes ahead of when they come into place.

Fleet Managers will need to be sure that their drivers have the right paperwork in place before travelling into Europe to avoid any hold ups. Having a management system in place that has the tools in place to manage this effectively will prove very beneficial when the changes do take effect.

FleetWave has the tools already in place to manage, track and trace paperwork, automate processes, reduce administration and support compliance to help prevent any costly cross border missing paperwork.

Even though extension to Article 50 is until 31st October, new documents are now required for travel irrespective of wider EU Exit negotiations.

These are:

The need for hauliers and commercial drivers to register certain commercial trailers to drive internationally.

Individuals planning to drive in certain countries outside the EU may require an International Driving Permit

Ashley Sowerby, Managing Director, Chevin says,

“There are fleets that continue to use dated systems or even spreadsheets to manage important paperwork which can now leave them at risk when travelling into Europe.”

“Advanced system such as FleetWave have the tools already in place to handle these requirements. We urge fleet managers to use the next six months to review their current systems and practices to make the necessary changes in advance of the Brexit outcome.”
