Per Diem Plus® FLEETS, a mobile application platform that automates per diem tax compliance for motor carriers, today announced a new integration with Samsara. The deep link is a configurable integration that enables drivers to navigate between the Samsara ELD dashboard and Per Diem Plus FLEETS app creating an enhanced user experience.


Samsara ELD

With over $40 million of per diem claimed and 5 years of reports accepted by the IRS, adding an accountable, substantiated per diem program is a sure-fire way for a motor carrier to increase driver take home pay and save money.

Consider the following:

  • The typical over-the-road (OTR) driver averages 127,500 miles annually and is away from home 280 nights a year.
  • 280 nights equals $18,480 of tax-free per diem at $66/day.[1]
  • Substantiated per diem can be earned during HOS-mandated 34-hour restarts and unforeseen delays like detention, breakdowns, or weather.
  • The average driver will save thousands of dollars in taxes, equivalent to several cents per mile.

Our cloud-based platform enables motor carriers to implement an IRS-compliant fleet per diem plan that is: 

  • Easy to Setup: An IRS-compliant mobile application platform that allows for rapid deployment with minimal investment in dollars and/or IT resources.
  • Easy to Use: Just drive! Trip Summary lets drivers know when they earned per diem.
  • Flexible: Supports individual and team drivers operating both ELD-exempt and non-exempt vehicles.
  • Streamlines Tax Compliance: Say “Goodbye” to ELD backups! Receive automated IRS-compliant fleetwide per diem payroll reports.

Case Study: One fleet with 85 company drivers was able to save $255,000 in the first year and increase driver pay by $0.04 per mile by leveraging FLEETS.
