Lately we've been talking a lot about inspections, violations, compliance, regulations, and mandates. All pretty serious stuff! This week, we wanted to break it up and do something a little more fun...like pull together a playlist of our top tunes for truckers! Our list includes new tracks, old classics, country, and rock - something for everyone!

Transport Canada announced yesterday that Canada will follow the US mandate and require the use of ELDs for tracking driver hours. This decision was made after years of review and found that it will improve safety, eliminate fraud, and significantly reduce paperwork.
Although minimal details have been released, Transport Canada stated they will align with the FMCSA’s December 2017 timeline. It is unknown if the same criteria will be used for what is considered an ELD or if there will similar exemptions, or any at all.

We're so excited about the new guidance from the FMCSA. It's great news worth celebrating. The July 10th guidance by the FMCSA clarifying just how legal electronic logbooks and electronic signatures are (spoiler: they're extremely legal) has been a long time coming. This is the story of how you made that happen with help from BigRoad staff and some folks in enforcement.

Our previous blog post in this series, Motorcoach Compliance and Safety - What Can BigRoad Do For Me? we discussed the emphasis on safety and compliance that has been present in the transportation world this past year. This was a big topic at the recent UMA Expo in Los Angeles as well.

Entrepreneurs typically possess a spirit of risk and drive which others do not, and believe me it’s needed with the overwhelming challenges we face pursuing our goals. Owning a business and making a profit is the primary goal of most entrepreneurs. When you decide to buy a truck and be your own boss, you must have these same traits in order to succeed because once you purchase equipment, you’re in for the long haul. You have to make sure your plan is solid and your investments are sound.
