150 Air-Miles App step by step instructions. Learn how to use the 160 kilometer calculator, the 50, 75, 100, and the 150 air mile radius calculator, record your work, and report your daily status to your carrier for retention while eliminating the need for expensive Electronic Logging Devices (ELD).
The 150 Air-Miles App is simple to use, yet it is a powerful tool to meet the requirements
you need to meet under the short haul exemptions of Title 49 CFR Section 395.1 and the Canadian Motor Vehicle Drivers Hours of Service Rules Section 81(2) without having to pay the enormous cost of ELD's.
Electronic logging devices can range anywhere from $20 to $30 per truck. If you have only 5 trucks for example, you can expect to pay on the high end $1800 per year and on the lower end $1200 per year. However,
With the cost of the 150 Air Miles App at $6.99 per truck you pay only $419.40 per year which leaves even on the lower end of the cost of an ELD, a savings of $780.60 on your account to handle other much needed expenses.
So why would you pay the cost of the ELD when you can have the tools you need to meet your requirements at a much lower cost?
