To help provide a bit more information on the steps you need to take, BigRoad CEO Terry Frey delivered our ELD - The Path to Compliance webinar.

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.

This past year saw a lot of changes in the trucking industry, particularly with the regulations. The ELD Mandate was finally published after being scheduled and rescheduled throughout 2015. Although the use of ELDs is not effective immediately due to the grace periods, it will definitely have a huge impact over the next coming years.
So it’s not a surprise that BigRoad’s Top 5 Blog Posts are almost all related to the ELD Mandate. These posts were the most viewed on the BigRoad blog and received a ton of shares/likes/comments on our social media networks, particularly Facebook.
If you missed any of these blogs or want a second look, here are the Top 5 Blogs from BigRoad for 2015.

Right now you are pretty much free to pick and choose any company you want to drive for due to the shortage of new drivers. In this climate, carriers are starting to pay more attention to the driver’s needs. They can’t afford to lose you guys and they can’t afford any shutdowns caused by hours of service violations.
