Short Haul in trucking is referring to a commercial vehicle being driven over a relatively short distance. This is contrast to commercial vehicles driven much farther, such as interstate or between cities - known as long haul or OTR (Over The Road).
An example of a Short Haul trip could be a food and beverage delivery truck with a dozen customers to service in a single day, all in the same local area.
Short Haul drivers may be exempt from maintaining an HOS (Hours of Service) logbook.
Keeping track of driver hours and rest periods is no easy task – regardless of the size of your fleet. Ineffective tachograph management can lead to driver fatigue, hefty fines and poor productivity. Digital tacho software can help you monitor you drivers time, helping to keep you entire mobile operation safe and compliant.
