How To Prevent Drivers/Users from Viewing and Selecting Trailers

  • How to make trailers historical

Applies To

  • Trailers
  • HOS

Procedure

Assign trailers to a group that drivers/users do not have access to.

Additional Notes

Trailers cannot be made historical at this time, and can only be removed. As per the following KCS article, removing trailers is not recommended as this will delete the DVIRs associated with them and remove the deleted trailers from existing HOS logs. Moving trailers to a group that drivers do not have access to will prevent the drivers from viewing and selecting these trailers but will not affect any existing data. Once the appropriate amount of time has passed (Typically >6 months) the HOS and DVIR logs no longer need to be kept for FMCSA audit purposes, and the trailers in that group can be removed.
