Did you know this about Trip Reports?

  • State laws require truck-operators to keep a record of distance driven and the fuel (including type of fuel) purchased in each state.
  • Each trip report must cover all distances travelled including dead-head miles.
  • Properly completed trip reports will help you avoid fines and assessments against your company.
  • If your vehicle or unit breaks-down and you get a replacement or re-power unit, you must complete a separate trip report for each vehicle to cover the distance travelled for each unit, including fuel purchased.
