Getting certified in DOT 49 CFR or TDG is a challenge in itself. Can one expect you to remember all the rules that control the display of placarding on the truck? DGMobi™ has the answer, self-contained, self-checking application on an Android or iOS device in you pocket. Enter the Hazmat data, every time you load the truck and DGMobi™ calculates the placarding that has to be displayed. When you unload the truck, delete it from the loads in your app with a simple swipe and the required placarding is recalculated. Besides placarding DGMobi™ helps you validate the proper shipping name, class and packing group are correct on declaration. Knowing that one has the right documentation, makes for a smooth inspection. Before even loading the truck the driver needs to make sure if the loads on the truck are compatible with the pick-up. In the United States, the segregation matrix is complex and DGMobi™ quickly verifies that the loads are compatible. DOT 49 CFR segregation rules are complex, whereas TDG segregation only encompasses Class 1 ( explosives).
If picking up a 49 CFR compliant load, if HRCQ applies to the load an advisory will be displayed so that the driver knows the goods have to be transported on authorized routes. Similarly TDG has an approximate equivalent ERAP. Even when a load originating in the US crosses the US border, if it meets the guidelines for ERAP, the goods will be held until an ERAP is produced. DGMobi™ warns drivers of these risks and helps in compliance
The 2016 Emergency response Guide a heavy book that sits beside the driver is now available on DGMobi™ . Enter the UN Number, and it displays, the Emergency response information and actions. It will also display the Emergency Contact numbers and if the device is an Iphone, it will actually let you dial the number from the display.
All the transactions on DGMobi™ are maintained in the cloud for 3 years as long as the DGMobi™ is valid. In an audit, the driver is confident to display a list of loads that were hauled in full compliance of DOT 49 CFR or TDG. If your company uses DGSMS®, Dispatchers from terminal can push transactions for pick to the DGMObi™ terminal eliminating the need to reenter the information manually.
An LTL truck driver always seeks to optimize the placards displayed and comply with regulations. To achieve this DGMobi™ provides the permissive placarding mode with 3 levels of placarding optimization: 1) Optimized, 2) semi-optimized and 3) non-optimized. All 3 modes are fully compliant with the regulations and will pass scrutiny of an inspecting.
However larger trucking companies prefer not to utilize all the exemptions and opt for safety mode. They prefer that the placarding reflect the danger on a truck in the event of an accident. The safety mode will have the larger loads of the same class duplicated with UN Numbers on each and if there are smaller loads of the same class, they too will be placarded by a single placard. In the safety optimized mode, the driver may choose to use the Dangerous / Danger placard if desired.
DGMobi™ is available to companies with customized logos and a central point of data collection which can be synchronized with a local copy of DGSMS®. Pricing is given based on volume of annual licenses. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
