Customers with Engine_Odometer_IFTA enabled will only see Odometer mileage (not Odometer & GPS side by side)
- Jurisdictions include all Canadian provinces, US states, and Mexican states.
The vehicle tab allows you to see per vehicle per state mileage breakdowns.
New Time Picker
The IFTA report only allows you to view your data on a monthly or quarterly basis. This brings this report inline with reporting requirements. At this time, you will not be able to view incomplete months - the most recent data in the report will be the last complete month. For example, if it is March 15th, the latest data you will see in the report is the full month of February. Once March ends, the full month of March will populate in the report. The same is true for quarters - in progress quarters are not available.
Downloading & Scheduling Reports
You are able to export the jurisdictions and vehicles tab to CSV, and filter & export by fuel type, jurisdiction, or tag. You are able to schedule Monthly or Quarterly IFTA reports by jurisdiction or vehicle, and will receive those reports on the first day of the following month or quarter.
Filtering by Tag, Fuel Type, or Jurisdiction
You are able to filter the report by Tag, Fuel Type, and Jurisdiction (State or Province). You may select multiple tags or jurisdictions, or just one.
If you have assigned fuel types to vehicles (via Settings > Fuel & Energy > Vehicle Fuel Types), you will be able to filter the report by one or all fuel types. The fuel types included as options in this report are IFTA specific fuel types, in line with reporting requirements for many jurisdictions. If you do not assign fuel types, you are able to see all mileage information either through the selection of All or Unspecified fuel types. The report defaults to All.
Assigning Vehicle Fuel Types
You are able to assign fuel types to vehicles via Settings > Fuel & Energy > Vehicle Fuel types tab. You will see all of your vehicles and the Make and Model of those vehicles if we are able to identify that information from the VIN lookup tool. You may see vehicles without makes or models, which means the vehicle either does not have a VIN or we are unable to identify the make and model from the VIN.
You are able to sort by Make, Model, or both, and assign Fuel Types to vehicles one at a time or all at once. If you know that all Ford Transits in their fleet are diesel, for example, then you can filter the report by Ford (make) and Transit (model), select all, and change the fuel type for all vehicles at once.
Editing Fuel Purchase Information
IFTA Fuel Types:
Fuel purchases must also be assigned a fuel type. We have mapped the fuel types for FLEETCOR issued cards and Wex issued cards to IFTA fuel types. If you have a direct integration or import a CSV file with the Fuel Type column from their fuel card vendor, Samsara will automatically assign the corresponding IFTA fuel type to the fuel purchase.
If you believe that the verification status of a purchase is inaccurate, you can update the status to be verified or unverified. This is useful for purchases where the geofence and the address/location of the fuel station may be slightly off.
Assigning a specific vehicle:
You are able to assign a specific vehicle to a fuel purchase by selecting a vehicle from the drop down. Assigning vehicles to purchases is required for complete IFTA reporting.
