Truckload carrier Werner Enterprises has received federal approval to
continue using its paperless log system.
The Omaha, NE-based company has GPS and computer equipment on many of
its nearly 9,000 tractors that store hours of service and other information.
Werner has been using the high-tech paperless log system since 1998,
when it took part in a pilot program.
Originally, Werner drivers were required to back up the paperless
system with regular log books, but that requirement has since been dropped.
