Lost my log book what to do?

I lost my log book what do I do now?

Response from Vicki:

Hello, and thank you for asking a question on our website.

First, you never want to falsify a log book entry.

So, if you don't have an electronic log book back up, contact your trucking company -- specifically, your driver manager -- for instructions.

My husband Mike and I wish you safe travels and lots of money saving opportunities on the road.

Best regards,
Vicki Simons

Ask Your Employer about the Procedure for Logs
by: Vicki

Whenever a professional truck driver begins working for a new employer or through a temp agency -- and he/she is not sure of the procedure regarding "to whom" to turn in log sheets -- ask.

It seems logical to me for a driver to turn in his/her log sheets to the entity to whom he/she is submitting the signed bills of lading at the end of every trips. However, if there is a different procedure, you need to understand it and abide by it.

Please refer all questions about your logs, log sheets and electronic logs to your driver manager or dispatcher. If he/she doesn't know the answer, go to his/her supervisor. And keep going up the chain of authority until you get an answer. Do not let a lack of knowledge on the part of your supervisor keep you from being compliant with the law.

What to do about lost log book
by: Vicki

1. Contact your driver manager for advice.
2. Figure out how in the world you lost your log book and make sure you don't make that mistake again.
3. Pray that the DOT doesn't ask to see anything more than the last 30 days' worth of logs.
4. Investigate the use of electronic logs.
