Time payed for operating company vehicles

I work in construction and my company furnishes myself and other foremen trucks to carry their tools and materials to the jobs.They pay travel time to the job only once no matter how far or how long you work on the job.Our work week consists of 4 10hr days so you travel home every weekend.Is it legal for them not to pay the foremen for transporting the tools and help to the jobsites?

travel pay

Generally, it may be legal not to pay for travel time between home and work, but the question is a bit more difficult. Are the tools solely yours, or are you protecting your employer's tools by taking them home? And, are you transporting others to the worksite at their request or at the request of the employer? I need more information.
