In the trucking world, keeping track of your fuel consumption and mileage details to file your quarterly IFTA report is essential when it comes to staying compliant with regulations and avoiding fines. But what happens if you decide to take a break for a quarter? There are numerous reasons why this might be the case, including:
Temporarily suspending operations due to maintenance or repairs
Temporarily suspending operations due to an off-season
Delay in operations due to fleet start-up or expansion
Whatever your reason, you’re probably wondering how you’re expected to stay compliant with IFTA requirements and maintain accurate records if you weren’t even operating within the filing timeframe. What do you report if you didn’t go anywhere? That’s where the “No Operation” feature in TruckLogics comes in.

Filing an IFTA report as “No Operation” in TruckLogics ensures that you’re maintaining compliance with all IFTA regulations, even if there was no fuel consumption or mileage to report for the quarter.
