A few months ago, we started receiving enquiries, from our clients and others who ran truck fleets, regarding the upcoming potential transition to ELD technology regulations in Canada. We contacted the Ministry of Transportation, the Canadian Council of Motor Carrier Administrators, and some provincial transportation authorities. There was absolutely no actionable information available.
Having spent the last 25 years implementing software and hardware technologies in the trucking industry, we are very concerned with the shrinking timeline – all indications are that there is a desire and necessity to launch the new regulations in sync with the USA launch in December 2017. We recommend at least 6 months of live testing and usage before a regulatory deadline.
We will continue to harvest any information we can, and will provide updates via this site.
