Identify Depots, Carriers, and Company Address

As part of your Hours of Service setup, you need to identify your depots, carriers, and the legal address for your company.

Set Corporate Address

Federal regulations require that your company’s full corporate name and address appear on your driver’s logs and that you provide your DOT number. The company information you enter in HOS is only for driver logs and is not tied to the company information you previously set up when configuring QTRACS.

  1. Click the Administration tab; then click Office.
  2. Type your company's FMCSA-issued DOT number.
  3. Type your company’s full name and corporate address.
  4. Click Save.
  5. Click OK to confirm.

Now this address will appear on your hours of service logs.

Set Up Carriers

If you run multiple carriers, you also need to set up those carriers so you can assign them to your drivers. The carrier address will replace your corporate address on driver logs if used.

  1. Click the Administration tab; then click Carrier.
  2. Ensure New Carrier is selected in the drop-down list.
  3. Enter the FMCSA-issued DOT number for the carrier and the full, official name for the carrier.
  4. Enter the address for the carrier.
  5. Click Save.

Set Up Depots

Depots identify the time zone of the driver’s log books. All accounts have one default depot called Depot automatically. Omnitracs also recommends you create a Depot called Inactive to assign inactive drivers and vehicles to since you cannot delete drivers or vehicles in HOS.

  1. Click the Administration tab; then click Depot.
  2. Ensure New Depot is selected in the depot drop-down list.
  3. Enter the depot’s name and a Depot ID, if desired. Depots IDs are numbered 1 through 32767, and if you do not enter an ID, the system assigns the lowest available ID number to it.
  4. Enter the depot’s location information and time zone.
  5. Click Save.
