Are Scheduled Times and Hours for HCR Trips Accurate?

Highway Contract Route (HCR) suppliers provide contracted transportation service based on established scheduled hours for the drivers to complete the trip. The times for the trip are manually entered in the system. Incorrect entries may result in inaccurate payment, increasing transportation costs. 

Our objective is to determine the accuracy of HCR scheduled hours and payment.
